Captain Janeway of the USS Voyager would be proud of Expedition 43 Flight Engineer Samantha Cristoforetti, who is seen above shortly after grappling the SpaceX Dragon resupply ship yesterday morning. Referring to the ISSpresso machine on board the supply ship, the Expedition 43 Flight Engineer tweeted out “There’s coffee in that nebula"… ehm, I mean… in that #Dragon.”
The quote references a statement Kathryn Janeway, Captain of the titular starship from the Star Trek: Voyager television series, made during an episode. Her drink of choice during the seven-year run of the show was coffee, and the beverage was the butt of many jokes and puns.
It’s no secret that Cristoforetti is a Star Trek fan; when Leonard Nimoy died in late February, she donned the ubiquitous communicator badge while giving the Vulcan salute to the Earth above.
