I’ve got a number of pop culture and comic book themed ice cube trays that add a little something to the drinks that we consume during our recording sessions. I don’t have anything Star Trek themed, but now, thanks to Diamond Select Toys, I’ve got something new to put in the freezer.

From his very earliest days on the ship (where he notably told his new captain that, as first officer, Riker couldn’t allow Picard to endanger himself on away teams) to the point where he alone killed a deadly bacterial infection with only the power of
