The Chris Pine + Zachary Quinto World Tour: What’s your favorite Star Trek episode?
On a scale from Karl Urban to Benedict Cumberbatch, how much of Star Trek: TOS fan are you?
This just says so much about the cast, and it cracks me up.
Zachary and Chris pick an episode centered around their characters’ relationship to one another.
Karl Urban, the guy who watches his way through the boxed sets, picks an episode that explores how each member of the trio provides a certain role.
John Cho recalls the one with his character’s most memorable moment.
Benedict Cumberbatch is a bit lost.
Alice Eve references a moment where Kirk talks about how to treat a lady.
J.J. Abrams picks a quintessential classic Trek episode dealing with the trio, time travel, and difficult choices.
Happy First Contact Day! 50 years to this day (April 5, 2063), Zefram Cochrane will complete his first warp-speed flight on the Phoenix, get the attention of the neighbouring Vulcans, and thus ushering in a new world for Earth, and creating the beginnings of the Federation as a whole (Star Trek: First Contact).
For this holiday, I decided to honour the man who constructed the warp drive and went on to be an inspiration for many Starfleet officers to come, including Jonathan Archer. While he was obviously a great scavenger and a keen engineer, Cochrane also liked to drink - strong drinks, and lots of them. It therefore seems appropriate to create an equally strong cocktail, to give plenty of courage to those about to engage in warp flight for the first time. If preferred, you could always do shots of tequila, like Cochrane and Deanna Troi do, but I prefer to mix it with other ingredients.
Replicate your own: The Zefram Cochrane
(Makes 1 cocktail; scale up as needed - but bear in mind this is quite strong!)
(Based on the Decolletage, created by Chris Hannah, as published on Serious Eats)
1 1/2 ounces / 45ml tequila (Reposado if possible, otherwise use Joven)
1 ounce / 30ml Dubbonet Rouge
1/2 ounce / 15ml Campari
1/4 ounce / 7ml Fernet Branca
Optional garnish: Twist of lemon peel
Fill a cocktail shaker or tall glass about halfway with ice. Add the ingredients and stir together with a spoon. Strain into an old-fashioned glass, and add 2-3 ice cubes.
For the optional garnish, twist a piece of lemon peel over the drink, and drop the peel in (the peel is optional primarily because I think it’s far too fussy for Zefram Cochrane, but it does add a nice citrus note to the drink).
I hope everyone has a great First Contact day, and remember, we only have 50 years until the invention of warp drive!
