    If you like it when robots have a plastic chest plate that opens up to show wiring that would have shamed my grandma.

    The first mention of Romulan Ale was TWOK, when McCoy brought some to Kirk. There was also the unnamed blue beverage in "The Enterprise Incident," which was darker than the stuff in TWOK amd TUC. In my headcannnnon I like to think that these are related drinks.

    If you're impressed by the fight (between Kirk and the Gorn) in Arena...

    You think that Uhura's dance in STV was erotic...

    Nah, too encompassing a theme. One could be a Tolkien fan or a DnD LARP participant. Shoot, it could be someone with a Santa workshop elf fetish!

    But of which style? Sarek pure blood or Spock half breed? The Sarek ones were a little blunter and rounded where as Spock's were sharper than a bat's fangs!!! :vulcan:

    Which is odd, one would think it'd be the other way around.

    The stuff in TEI is the real Romilan ale; the stuff we see in TWOK and TUC is the diluted version that ale-runners sell to unsuspecting humans to increase their profits. :devil:

    ...you believe that stardates are a practical way of telling the date and time.

    It's like a dark beer versus a lite beer: I assume, like the craft beer industry in our world, the Romulans have thousands of breweries making many Romulan ales with different levels of "IBU" and "AVB". The next time I'm on Romulus, I'm doing the craft Romulan Ale brewery tours. :rommie: :beer:

    You can tell which episode a picture of a corridor with only supernumeraries in it is from.

    Or that you can tell which episode of Star Trek it is from any photograph of William Shatner or Leonard Nimoy at a quick glance! :vulcan::lol:
