Dec10, Star Trek, Scotty, Quality
Fandom: Star Trek XI (or TOS, really)
Note: For darkladyothsith, who wanted Scotty, holiday traditions.
The still that Scotty operated discreetly, tucked into one of the less-accessible corners of the Enterprise's engine room, produced imbibables more than adequate for everyday drinking. Mostly he stuck to those; it wasn't as if there were a liquor store in every star system, after all.
For some holidays, however, both tradition and good taste demanded celebration with liquor of higher quality than what came from the still. On every January twenty-fifth Scotty chose carefully from amongst the dozen or so bottles of good Scottish whiskey he kept safely locked in his quarters. Nothing less would do for Burns Nicht.
