Jean Luc Piccard would never.... the Enterprise while drunk! (Captain Kirk maybe, but not Jean Luc.) I've been following this story in the papers and on NPR about the incidents in which U.S. astronauts have shown up so drunk to their next missions that they were deemed a flight risk but NASA gave them clearance anyway. Wha huh? Driving a car while drunk is stupid enough, but the space shuttle? All this is on the heels of the attempted kidnapping by the astronaut in adult diapers several months ago that very nearly amused me to death. Add NASA Public Relations Specialist to my list of jobs I never want.

Considering NASA's safety procedures as of late, I'd be drunk in the space shuttle, too.
