Special Brew

SPACE 1899

Looks like Helena was experimenting with drink in the 'Exiles' novelization in the 'Earthbound' book by EC Tubb.

Page 126 - Bergman accepts and downs a drink that Helena gives him, then says 'Back on Earth that would have been illegal. A touch of strychine, some cocaine, plenty of caffeine, glucose and, I'd guess, some amphetamines and assorted relaxing agents. Right?'

And from the TV episodes, we all thought it was Tony who was the special brew expert ! :D


Strychnine, eh? The legendary substance added to coffee for some smooth mafia killings. That would be interesting...:D
