Shimoda plays with isolinear chips

Drunk Shimoda is a reference to TNG episode 2, "The Naked Now," where engineer Jim Shimoda is so inebriated by a virus that he removes all the isolinear chips from the engineering systems. Like a drunk baby, he is so oblivious to the consequences of his actions that he playfully stacks them while the ship counts down to destruction. This sublime state of delirious self-expression was so touching to Adam and Ben that they created a designation honoring each episode's character who most embodied his spirit.

For the purposes of scoring, half points are awarded to characters who only share one of the hosts' distinction for that episode.

See Drunk Shimoda: The Next Generation for the complete list of TNG scores.
