359 Boldly Going Where No Tiki Bar Has Gone Before

Somewhere in the 24th century you can rest easy knowing that humans still imbibe their favorite spirits and indulge in the cocktails of cultures from across the cosmos.  And this is why Star Trek will always be Sunshines go to sci-fi franchise.  In the latest installment of trek, Bones and Kirk start the film with a good Scotch.  If we were spending years on end in the deep reaches of space it wouldn't be possible without a great drink and some friends to share it with.  For this reason, there is hope for the future of humankind.  As long as we have our liquor we will have our humanity.  Sunshine spends a few moments of this show sharing his love of Star Trek and we begin the program with a version of the original TV theme by Jimmy Psycho of the Jimmy Psycho  Experiment.
