Who hasn’t watched an episode of The X-Files and said “Hmmm… I don’t know if that could be real”. While viewing for the podcast, the occasional rationalization as to the possibilities of some of the happenings MAY have occured. Read for yourself in The Real Science Behind The X-Files by Anne Simon PhD available on Amazon. Plus to this one, the forward is written by Chris Carter himself!

All The [Trek] – Technical Difficulties

kirk_saurian

Hello everyone! Unfortunately we’re down a computer this week (it’s off to the Apple Depot for love and repairs) so we’re not going to be able to post a new All The [Trek] video this week. We’ll bring you double the awesome next week to make up for it though!

While you’re patiently waiting, I thought I’d share some tried and true Star Trek drinking game rules my husband and I came up with a few years ago while watching The Next Generation. Many of these are perfectly useful for any Star Trek series.

Star Trek Drinking Game (Calcote House Rules)

  • Ship sip -  Take a drink whenever any ship is featured on screen in an exterior shot
  • Commercial break - Take a drink whenever it’s obvious the show cut to a commercial during its original airing
  • Yellow Alert  – Take 1 drink if there’s a yellow alert
  • Red Alert – Take 2 drinks  if there’s a red alert
  • Intruder Alert - Take 3 drinks if there’s an intruder alert
  • Countdown! – Take a drink whenever a countdown starts
  • What the hell is going on? - Take a drink whenever a character curses
  • Gotta keep up – Take a drink if a character on screen drinks
  • Fire Phasers - take a drink whenever a ship fires their weapons
  • My name is… - Take a drink if a character refers to someone by their full name
  • Engaged - Finish your drink at the end of the episode
  • Danger Zone - Finish your drink if someone dies (WARNING: This rule can get out of hand. We recommend only doing this once per episode. Make sure to drink responsibly! )

Next Gen Specific Rules

  • Riker Sits – Take a shot if Riker sits down or gets up from his chair by throwing his leg over the back
  • Picard Maneuver – Take a drink whenever someone pulls a Picard Maneuver
  • Data Knows Nothing – Take a drink whenever Data doesn’t understand some kind of human behavior
  • Geordi Sees - Take a shot if we see from Geordi’s perspective through his visor
  • I’m Sensing… – Take a drink whenever Troi uses her Betazed abilities
  • Positronic brain - Take a drink if Data’s innards are showing
  • Working for the Weekend – Take a drink if a character appears out of uniform. Take 2 drinks if it’s a Chesty Picard.
