Since we're totally all Septic Yankee Scum around here (and the HSAU is winding down for the time being) I was thinking:
American Thanksgiving. An excuse to watch American Football, eat way too much food, and pretend you don't hate your family. (Unless you like your family. Then you're a communist.)
In the rebootverse, where the Federation is basically AMERICA.. BUT BETTER! I would like to posit that Thanksgiving is the memorial day for those who died in the Battle of Vulcan.
So. The Enterprise is in orbit around Earth. The crew is down on the planet. It has now been 1 year since the fight with the Romulans.
What is everyone thankful for? Who are they with? And was turkey really inwented in Russia?
