Tsing Tao Beer Spans the Galaxy

On keeping with the Star Trek theme (that occasionally pops up on this blog), here’s some Star Trivia about Star Trek and Chinese influences.

Apparently, Tsing Tao beer left a memorable impression on Gene Roddenberry, and on others who worked with him, as evidenced by these screen shots of a Star Trek: The Original Series episode called: “And the Children Shall Lead“.

Check out the Asian kid (1st on right). In this story, his dad has been buried along with the other adult colonists. I may be mistaken, but I believe the Asian kid’s family name is “Tao”.
