Chocolate Defiant



I meant to make note of this a while back - for Easter, Sylvia found a chocolate USS Defiant, Captain Sisko's ship from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. It's interesting that the chocolatiers chose this relatively lesser-known vessel; why not the Enterprise? Probably because the short, stubby shape of the Defiant is less likely to break into several pieces during shipping.

This thing is huge; two weeks later, I've barely managed to eat one of the warp nacelles.

I saw this in a local store. I figure that either the chocolate maker was just thawed after being cryo-frozen in 1995, or they've gotten to the bottom of their stock in the warehouse and they rescued and repackaged the least beetle-ridden treats for resale. If I were you, I'd check for antennae in your feces for a few weeks just to be safe.

Thanks for that appetizing vision, Ron. Now I'm afraid to finish the thing.

Isn't it bad form that the black guys ship is made from chocolate?
