This is an issue currently being debated on the USS Murgatroid...|
Ever since the Ferengi "sold" Starfleet on their alcohol-replacement, synthehol, real alcohol has been mostly banned on Starfleet ships, much as Romulan Ale always was. Replicators won't create it, and unless you're a posh ship like the Enterprise with their own bar and bartender (big whoopie for them) you can't requisition any. Keeping the Murgatroid crew supplied with alcohol has required a number of "colorful" endeavors, like providing gold on the black market to the green Orion syndicate for blue Romulan Ale... The process is almost as technicolor as the results the next morning. But, back to the original idea, vis-a-vis the Ferengi foisting synthehol on Starfleet...
Should this be considered an act of war?
