Re: Voyagers ending, redone.

Imagine what Sisko thought would become of Jake spending too much time with Nog?

(Quark had more to be worried about.)

After all the we're-so-evolved propaganda humans had swallowed they would be freaking out at their kid being friends with a species who had no desire to drink the rootbeer.

Re: Voyagers ending, redone.

I think I went looking for root beer once in my local supermarket and found it, but it's unlikely to have been anything close to the brand/flavour drunk on DS9.

It's exactly the same as sarsparilla.

Someone will now explain to me that it isn't, and why, but having drunk both I think it's a pepsi vs coke deal.

Pepsi is nothing like Coke!!!!!

I'm reasonably sure I've never had sarsaparilla, but if some fiction drove me towards that beverage it would have been old Lucky Luke cartoons.

There is not a single flavor of soda available for sale in my city that I have not tried. The same for potato chips.

Irn-Bru and wasabi chips, made for each other

Re: Voyagers ending, redone.

When a bag of chips is more expensive than a steak, I'm either going to find a cheaper bag of chips or buy that steak.

All sarsparillas are a type of root beer, but not all root beers are sarsparilla. That is the short, short version, anyway.

Oh. Well not being enamored with the stuff I haven't explored the difference and we only have a few sarsparillas here. It's more of an american thing.

I did once have home made sarsparilla made with real roots and that was awesome. And no it wasn't like Marge Simpson's home made Pepsi.

Well I thought I replied (it's the thought that counts right? I think the Submit and Preview buttons should be reversed.). It sounds like a plan. I'm saving up for hard to find merchandise outside of Japan but if I have a good amount I'll work up a costume and probably start/join a Otakon 2013 thread and post what I'll wear there.

To get back on topic, do you think they have conventions in the Star Trek universe? Voyagers last episode could have showed a Voyager convention where people were dressed as species Voyager came across, or would that have been too much?
Done and done! When I finally decide my costume I'll let you know so we can connect.

About in-world conventions, this is something I'd never considered. Though the Ferengi would most certainly dominate the sales booths. They would revel in selling a 2 ounce hunk of plastic for $80.

Any Ferengi hosted convention would rock, though it will be costly.

The thing I like about this thread is that it teaches you about Sarsparillas and doesn't just endlessly rag on Endgame.

You know what's absolutely perfect for Ferengi?

Dilithium crystals. THEY'RE REAL PROPS HARRY!

And sadly I've seen them go for quadruple that at auctions. Not charity auctions either.. it's kind of weird how people will bid for all kinds of crap at cons that a simple search of their communicator will tell them is priced way over the already ridiculous prices.

I was going to say why would someone spend $20 on a shard of glass and/or plastic but I've probably spent more for less. Picard kept model ships in his ready room too you know.

About that Otakon thread, I might miss it this year. Things came up, financially, but my brother is going and we have traded a day at Otakon for money/favors. Bah, I'll start a thread anyway.
