    I think it must be more akin to whisky than actual ale the way they seem to describe it in the films!

    Yeah, but what if he's the lowest ranking individual?


    We're going to need a new crewman #6!

    Typically, one does not drink whiskey by the glass full (unless maybe in Australia), so, no, it is not akin to whiskey in the films. The last time I had Romulan Ale, it was light blue with a little fizz, more akin to a very strong, flat ale, hence "ale" in its name. My long and extensive drinking record has determined the following facts:
    Romulan Ale = Ale
    Saurian Brandy = Brandy
    Blood Wine = Wine
    Tranya = Cordial
    It's Green = :shrug: ?.

    . . . you tell the kindly police officer that the yellow light you accelerated through was actually green.

    The Romulans make their ale out of quadrotriticale. They bought the stuff Arne Darvin poisoned, and use the poison instead of yeast, because heating it makes the deadly properties inert. That's why it has such a kick.

    ....as your car accelerates through 10, 20, 30 miles per hour you are really thinking Warp 1, Warp 2, Warp 3, etc. :cool:

    Dude! I have done that for years. Maintain Warp 7, Mr. Sulu (i.e.. hold at 70 MPH).

    I (and everyone else in the car) get really excited when I hit Warp 9. :eek:

    You see a satellite photo of the Martian surface and think there's a Starfleet Delta there when in actuality it's a gigantic boomerang.

    You've spent time in front of the mirror trying to get your hair to do that cool forelock thing that Kirk's does.

    Guilty again. I've even thought and occasionally said aloud "Thank you, Lieutenant; one-quarter impulse power" when getting underway. There was also a tricky intersection near a place I used to live where I felt I needed to be careful because of its history, and most of the time, when approaching, I'd hear "Warning . . . we have entered the Neutral Zone," and "We are now in violation of Treaty, Captain" in my head. Then there's referring to anyone sitting in the front passenger seat (right side for those of us in the US anyway) as the navigator.

    Let's face it, if you've driven a car and are posting on this forum, you've almost certainly done some of this stuff.
    Or do it all the time. :beer:

    I had a toy switch on my car’s dashboard that said ‘Warp Drive’ on it. One of my friends asked if it really worked, and she wasn’t joking.:shrug:
