Happy First Contact! 50 years from now on this day, April 5th 2063, Zefram Cochrane will make first contact with the Vulcan’s after the successful run of humanity’s first capable warp drive vessel, the Phoenix.
In honor of this event, lets all get drunk, put on Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride,” and admire the stars tonight!

The phones and the net were down at work last week for four hours, so I drew this. I plan on drawing the entire crew.
I saw this on my dash but it was cropped and had no source, I hate that. Here’s the entire image which is done by an amazing Illustrator, Tracie Ching.
I thought I’d post a bunch of these together for you all to enjoy.
These are only nine images from an Illustrated Guide to Star Trek Food and Beverages that I’m working on. There will be 45 total beverages and 20 total food items. Also included in the book will be food and alcoholic drink recipes, all of which I plan on creating from scratch with a friend of mine, who is a professional bartender.
Please don’t reblog this saying I missed this drink or missed that drink, or why the hell isn’t there Scotty drinking Scotch, or why isn’t there Scotty’s mysterious green drink (which is Aldebaran Whiskey by the way)?!?!?! Trust me, whatever you can come up with, it’s on my to do list. I’m not a casual Star Trek fan…Star Trek is my life.
