Halloween wine tale 2022: Star Trek: The Wine Generation
The WC’s Halloween wine tale returns: The USS Wine Curmudgeon must cross the three-tier zone to rescue $10 wine from the clutches of the Imperial Distributor Empire
Captain’s log, Stardate 3554.1: Just six hours ago, the USS Wine Curmudgeon crew was enjoying some much deserved shore leave with Gascon whites and Spanish roses when a message from Admiral McMillan sent us to the edge of the three-tier zone.
“Captain, a New Orleanian trader named McNally claims he has a shipload of quality $10 California red and white wine, and he is willing to sell it to us. But we have to meet his ship on the Imperial Distributor Empire side of the three-tier zone to get it.”
“Admiral, with all due respect, and I understand that a shipload of quality $10 California red and white wine is among the rarest things in the Federation. But this sounds like a trap.”
“Agreed, Captain. But if we can bring that wine into the Federation, it will change the balance of power in the quadrant. So WineFleet has agreed to take the chance. Meet McNally and bring back that wine.”
