The Rules:

Ask about any episode, movie or incarnation. You must rely on your memory - you can't consult any book, watch an episode or a movie, or ask someone else, either in formulating or answering a question. Number your question(s) (no more than five at a time, please), in sequence after those that came before. You can't post questions of your own until you've correctly answered at least one earlier question.

I'll start the ball rolling:

1. What is James T. Kirk's middle name?
2. What soup does Nurse Chapel make for Spock in "Amok Time"?
3. Cyrano Jones tries to interest the K-7 bartender in what products other than tribbles?
4. Harry Kim rises to the command of what ship?
5. The Enterprise-C is christened with a bottle of what brand of champagne?

simster

1. Tiberius
2. Plumok
3. Fire Crystals (for one)
4. Voyager
5. Unknown... as the Christening of the C is not shown in any known footage.

Ethilrist

1. Something beginning with "R", if Where No Man Has Gone Before is to be believed.
2. Plomik.

3. Cyrano Jones tries to interest the K-7 bartender in what products other than tribbles?
Spican flame gems and some sort of "glow water" (Alterean perhaps?). The barkeep had enough flame gems and used the glow water to polish then.

Simster and Ethilrist are both correct on question 1, and Otto is partially correct as to question 3. Ask questions of your own, if you like.

Simster, you're right as to question 5. :smack: I meant the Enterprise-B.

The other answers given so far are incorrect (spelling counts!)

t5. What is the genesis of the first medical tricorder? (Hint: common household item)
The salt shakers were the genesis of McCoy's small handheld instruments, not the "medical tricorder" (which pretty much looks like any other tricorder, except that it's the one McCoy carries).

1. Which character attempted to bribe his way out of the Enterprise (no bloody A, B, C, or D) brig?

Right you are.

For numbering questions, let's keep it sequential, as I asked in the OP. Sorry I didn't make that clear. So tdn's would be #6-11, Hentor's would be 12, want2know's would be 13-18, Bear Flag's would be 19, Hentor's would be 20, and Steve MB 's would be 21. The next posted question would be 22. Thanks.

13. Whoopie Goldberg, who played Guinan on TNG (Oscar win for "Ghost") and Louise Fletcher, who played Kai Winn on DS9 (Oscar for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest").
14. Don't know the name, but "It is green."
15. Dunno.

As provided in the OP, "You must rely on your memory - you can't consult any book, watch an episode or a movie, or ask someone else, either in formulating or answering a question." Maybe I should have specified the Internet, but I think that falls under "ask someone else" for purposes of the contest.

Thanks!

No problem, except for that question, I figured that no being in the known universe besides me would know the answer. OK, maybe Brent Spiner might. And a handful of trainers.

Shatner (or his stunt double) split his pants in The Savage Curtain.

The OP wasn't quite clear, so I am assuming you may ask "behind-the-scenes questions as well.

22. Where did the "Montgomery" in Montgomery Scott come from? Don't just name the source, name why the source named the character this.

23. Who originally wanted to play Ensign Freeman in The Trouble With Tribbles? Why was he rejected for the role?

24. Name another TOS regular besides Shatner to wear a toupee in the movie-era. In the 60s this other actor still had his own hair (most of the time).

4. Harry Kim rises to the command of what ship?
Do you mean The Nightengale or USS Rhode Island?

What 5-digit number did Enterprise use to force Reliant to lower shields?
16309

w2: What did Scotty get drunk on in the holodeck? And how did Data describe it?
Aldebaran whiskey. Who do you think gave it to Guinan?

w3: How did Lwaxana save Odo's life?
As I recall, she cradled his gelatinous form in the hem of her dress.

24. Name another TOS regular besides Shatner to wear a toupee in the movie-era. In the 60s this other actor still had his own hair (most of the time).
Koenig. I must admit I remember this one from a trivia thread earlier this year.

I will return with my questions later. I have to finish a project by 5.

#23 - David Gerrold, author of the episode. Rejected because he was "too skinny" for a Star Fleet officer.

Hentor the Barbarian
12-04-2006, 05:46 PM
My recollection of the pants splitting was that it was a stunt double thrown in the corridor by Ricardo Montalban in Space Seed. I suppose there could have been more than one instance of split pants, or I could have misremembered.

Alan Smithee
12-04-2006, 05:49 PM
I knew David Gerrold was the first part of the answer to 23, but I thought it was because he wasn't a member of the Screen Actors' Guild. (Though "too skinny" sounds like something Gerrold might claim.)

Khan
12-04-2006, 05:59 PM
k1: Which member of the Federation can't be told apart by anyone who's not a member of that species?

k2: We know Jeffrey Combs from his roles as Weyoun, Shran, Liquidator Brunt, FCA, and others, but none of his characters appeared on TNG. What lead role in that series did he audition for?

k3: The actors who played Gul Dukat and the female shapeshifter appeared in various roles in TNG before they appeared on DS9. Name them.

k4: Which one of Phlox's pets did he use to clear the Xindi neural parasites out of Hoshi's nervous system?

k5: How many members of Khan's crew got killed by the Ceti Eels?

IIRC, joining SAG would simply be a matter of 1)showing that you had a paid acting gig lined up, 2)signing up, and 3)paying the dues.

k1: Which member of the Federation can't be told apart by anyone who's not a member of that species?

Benzites. IIRC Only individuals from the same geographic region looked alike. They also require cool little vaporizers to breathe.

Khan
12-04-2006, 06:45 PM
You're right, Doc. I got interested in learning about them after I posted my questions, so I looked them up. I took it to mean that there was only one geostructure on their home planet, but it turns out that I misread. Nice catch.

Incidentally, wouldn't it have been clever if they'd had the Enterprise B christened with a vintage from the Picard family vineyards? Then again, the intertwined fates of so many generations of space heroes tends to get tiresome. Oh well.

Don't know about the others...but K2 is that he auditioned for the role of Riker.
Does that mean I get to ask some questions now?

Khan
12-04-2006, 09:14 PM
As for DC2, I know which episode you're referring to. "The Next Phase," where Geordi and Ro accidentally get cloaked in an accident while helping a Romulan scout ship. Damned if I can remember what the Bajoran funeral ritual is.

k6 - Where was Deep Space 9 moved after the Bajoran Wormhole was discovered?

k7 - Apropos of the ordinal for this question, what is the name of the crewmember from the Enterprise in "Trials and Tribble-ations" who Bashir thinks he needs to hook up with in case he's predestined to become his own grandfather?

k8 - Name 5 of the ships destroyed by the Borg at the battle of Wolf 359. Bonus: how many Starfleet ships were lost there?

k9 - In STIV, what hospital was Chekov taken to after he took a dive off the deck of the "Enterprise?"

k10 - Name the crewmembers of the Enterprise A who carried out the assassination of Chancellor Gorkon.

Khan
12-04-2006, 09:17 PM

Sir Rhosis, "behind the scenes" questions are certainly allowed - even encouraged, if not too obscure!

Khan, as to question 4, yes, I was thinking of the USS Rhode Island from VGR "Endgame."

Numbering, Trekkers, numbering! Khan 's k1-k5 would be #25-29. Doc Cathode's DC1-DC3 would be #30-32. Khan's subsequent k6-k10 would be #33-37. The next posted question should be #38.

Answer to k3 (aka 27): Marc Alaimo played Gul Macet on TNG's "The Wounded." Salome Jens played the Preserver hologram in TNG's "The Chase."

38. How does former Los Angelese Police Department Lieutenant Wilbur Clingan figure into Star Trek lore?

k3: The actors who played Gul Dukat and the female shapeshifter appeared in various roles in TNG before they appeared on DS9. Name them.
Marc Alaimo (Dukat) previously played another Cardassian commander, in one of the earlier appearances of Cardassians in TNG -- he played Gul Macet. I think he had some other guest roles as well, but that's the one that I remember well -- playing a different Cardassian before he was Dukat. I remember at the time hearing it like one word -- "Golmacet" -- before I later saw it written and realized that "Gul" was a title.

Sir Rhosis
12-05-2006, 12:16 AM
Close enough, Doc, but actually, "Spectre of The Gun."

DocCathode

k7 - Apropos of the ordinal for this question, what is the name of the crewmember from the Enterprise in "Trials and Tribble-ations" who Bashir thinks he needs to hook up with in case he's predestined to become his own grandfather?

Damn, all I can remember is the look she gave Bashir, and the the invitation to her medical at 1900. Whatley? Watley? She's a lieutenant at any rate, isn't she?

Khan
12-05-2006, 03:48 AM
k6/33 - I'll rephrase. In what region of the Bajoran System is the wormhole located?

k7/34 - Close enough. It was Watley. I wouldn't mind a physical from her either ;)

That one where Kirk is adopted into an Indian tribe on an alien planet?
The Paradise Syndrome, I think.


40) What is the combination to Kirk's safe? (The correct answer can be expressed in three words)

Khan
12-05-2006, 05:53 AM
Seeing as how I appear to be stricken with insomnia, here are some booze-themed questions:

41.) What liquor was popular during Kirk's time that had a distinctive curved-neck bottle that Quark also keeps in stock?

42.) What Cardassian liquor was an acquired taste that Damar was particularly fond of?

43.) What real-life product was used as the "prop" for the answer to 42?

44.) Name an officer who was among the few in Starfleet never to have tried Romulan Ale.

45.) What cocktail did Data prepare for Deanna Troi after she beat him in a game of 3D chess?

You're right. The episode was TNG "The Wounded," and it marked the Cardassians' first appearance. We also learned a lot about O'Brien's harrowing wartime experiences in that episode.

And another answer:

33. The Dinorious Belt (I think that's the correct spelling).

Correct on 33, 41, and 42. I was going to say that it was Donorius, but it turns out it's Denorius. Close enough anyway. ;)

12-05-2006, 02:15 PM
Correct answers to all of mine, and I'd say any a., b., c., etc., question would count individually. I did them a. b., c. d., to save typing.

To follow up on a question I posed, since no one has guessed it. Jimmy Doohan gave Scotty his first name of Montgomery. "Montgomery" was his mother's maiden name, it was his own middle name, and it was the first name of one of his sons.

Also, the former Lieutenant Clingan, now in his 80s, occasionally appears at L. A. conventions, billed as the original Klingon.

The song is "Misty," I think...

This one is almost too easy:

DG1: What was the registry number of the Reliant?

Okay, this one's too geeky even for me, but I'll state it, and see if I get clobbered later...

DG2: In ST6:TUC, at one point, Scotty is looking at some blueprints/schematics of a "Constitution Class" vessel, but obviously not TOS-era. Why is this out of place on NCC-1701-A?

Khan
12-05-2006, 07:29 PM

It was "Nightbird."

For Dukat/Alaimo we've got Gul Macet, Bart LaRue (the 19th century gambler), and racist cop* from the orb vision so far, but there's still one more (hint: it's not a disguise as a Bajoran or any Prophet/Pah Wraith manifestation... I'm talking TNG, here).

*That's interesting fodder for a question, isn't it?;)

49- What is the name of the Ferengi code composed of light and darkness?

51-How do you differentiate between the brains of Data and Lore?

52-Who is Musakka's counterpart?

50-An easy one, what do you wear to a Betazed wedding?

Presuming it's traditional, nothing.

51-How do you differentiate between the brains of Data and Lore?

The easiest way would be that Data can't use contractions. He's also not as volatile even once he gets the emotion chip, nor is he evil.

I was waiting for you to show up!

Ivylass, in Star Trek, prune juice IS prune juice! :D

Good call on the gong and the matador, though.

Pushkin, you pretty much got the Tellarite question. Nice work in anticipating Trek's propensity to do that, too.

Also, DrkGntly, Marc Alaimo didn't play the guy who faked his death to get his hands on the metaphasic shields. You'll have to go further back than that ;).

As for 57, that episode was on Spike today, so maybe a few more people know the answer now.

So, following up on the Kolvoord Starburst question:

68.) What formation were they supposed to be flying?

69.) When Captain Jellico took over for Picard in "Chain of Command," what had his son just drawn for him?

70.) A point of rivalry between Riker and his dad involved sparring in a particular school of martial arts. What was it, and what did Riker learn about their competitions when his dad visited the Enterprise?

71.) Another Riker question: name the ships he served on before the Enterprise-D (bonus if you can name a significant event that happened on each one).

72.) In ENT: "Vox Sola," what did crew members of the Enterprise do to inadvertently offend the visiting Kretassans?

Ephemera

Huh. I had no idea I had any kind of Trek notoriety. Awesome.

22nd Century New Jersey

71.) Another Riker question: name the ships he served on before the Enterprise-D (bonus if you can name a significant event that happened on each one).

He cheats but I can't remember the name of the martial art. Some sort of nonsensical -jitsu.

71.) Another Riker question: name the ships he served on before the Enterprise-D (bonus if you can name a significant event that happened on each one).

The Potemkin, Hood, and Pegasus. He was inadvertently cloned in a transporter accident on the Potemkin, resulting in the birth of Thomas Riker, and was one of the few officers to side with Captain Pressman during a mutiny on it when they used an illegal phase cloaking device and partially embedded the ship in an asteroid. Nothing particularly noteworthy occured during his posting as executive officer on the Hood.

Oh, I know! I know! He prevented his captain from beaming down into what he considered a dangerous situation. This brought him to the attention of Jean-Luc Picard, who was in the market for a Number One.

For all his firmness on the Hood, however, I never did see him prevent Picard from beaming down when Picard wanted to.

Khan
12-06-2006, 05:08 PM
Ivylass got it. He stood up against Captain DeSoto, and that impressed Picard. He met Deanna either during or just before joining the Potemkin. I think that's only been firmly established outside of canon, though.

73.) All betazoids have totally black irises.

Alan Smithee
12-06-2006, 05:12 PM
Doh! I should have thought before making a guess. Riker was on the Potemkin before the Hood, and knew Troi then, so they couldn't have met on the Hood. Where did they meet? I can't count this as a trivia question because I don't know for sure. The Academy?

Ivylass, the miniseries was North and South, but I don't know who else was in it.

Khan
12-06-2006, 05:13 PM
Damnit, that's what I get for posting in a hurry. I'll rephrase: he met Deanna around the time he was posted on the Potemkin, but whether it was before or during has probably only been established in the novels. Remember, in the episode where they find his duplicate, Thomas Riker wanted to start things back up with her when he saw her again.

Also, what are you talking about, Ivylass? Unless I've missed some of your questions, all of your questions except the one about Jake and Nog and the one about miniseries Frakes was in have been answered.

It's really hard to keep track of all the questions, especially since I'm late to the thread, and I didn't notice yours.

During an episode of DS9, Jake and Nog utter a phrase punning a similar phrase from an Oscar-winning movie. What was the phrase, and (obviously) what was the movie?

It was from In the Cards, the last episode of the fifth season, and the line was "Lions, Gigers, and Bears", in reference to The Wizard of Oz.

Riker's father appeared in a mini-series with Jonathen Frakes. What was the mini-series? What two other guest stars also apeared in that same mini-series? What actor from Wrath of Khan ALSO appeared in that same mini-series?

North and South. No idea who his co-stars were, though. Never seen it.


And a few questions of my own:

74. Who and what is the bear I referenced in my answer to ivylass' question?
75. Chekov's love interest in The Way to Eden was originally going to be someone completely different. Who was it going to be and what is her significance?
76. What is the Intrepid class' maximum rated warp speed?

Since this isn't an official trivia question, I felt no guilt over looking it up in the Star Trek Encyclopedia (Okuda) -- just to assist with general information and curiosity. According to that resource, it says, "Early in his Starfleet career, Riker was stationed on planet Betazed, where he became romantically involved with psychology student Deanna Troi". It mentions the episode "Menage a Troi" (TNG) as a reference.

Follow-up: I found a couple of places online that listed a script for "Menage a Troi". Assuming they are accurate (and they both match), then I'd say we can call it canon. Here's one of Riker's lines (to Deanna, as they reminisce on Betazed):
Riker: "A certain junior lieutenant will always remember meeting a very serious psychology student. It was the best thing about being assigned to Betazed."

I was referring to Riker confronting DeSoto as the cause of his posting to the Enterprise, not the assignment itself. Probably important to clarify that :)

79. Macha Hernandez was going to be the Enterprise's Tactical Officer played by Marina Sirtis, with Denise Crosby playing the role as Ship's Counselor. I don't remember what the character's name was at that point, but the casting for those roles was changed for some reason or other, and so Tasha Yar was born (what, you believed that b.s. about Turkana IV? :p)

Didn't some aspect of that story have something to do with Vasquez from Aliens? Did they come up with the character because of her, or change it because of her?

Sorry, I missed that you'd already written this.

As to Macha Hernandez, one of Roddenberry's associates (Bob Justman?) wrote that he and GR saw "Aliens" and were very impressed by the Vasquez character. Roddenberry decided he wanted the Enterprise-D's chief of security to be a tough-as-nails Latina, too.

Yep, that's the one. Unless I'm confusing him with someone else, the character's name was Tebok. Turns out though, that there was still one other character he played, an Antican ambassador (http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Image:BadarNDD.jpg).

You're right about the Ferengi too.

Chief O'Brien (in "Visionary"), Jennifer Sisko (who appeared in "Through the Looking Glass" and then came over to our universe in "Shattered Mirror"), Vedek Bareil (in "Resurrection"), and possibly Tasha Yar, although she came to our universe well *before* she died over here.

Harry Kim and Naomi Wildman both died in one episode, only to be replaced by versions of them from a copy of Voyager - but from memory, I don't think it was a timeline thing.

Looks like I need to get my spatial/temporal anomalies straight. Now that you mention it, I seem to recall some kind of anomaly that made two copies of Voyager, one of which got destroyed in a Vidiian attack. Naomi Wildman and Kim died on the first Voyager, and got replaced by their counterparts on the second. O'Brien is a time thing though, since he came back from a few hours into the future while the earlier one died of radiation exposure.

I tried to rule out the Mirror Universe based on the time reference, but I should have also said "replace," since I don't see, for example, Intendant Kira, handling things quite the same way as Major/Colonel Kira. ;) Saying "replace" would have ruled out Tasha too, but you're right based on the way I phrased the question.

91. Time squared, Cause and Effect, Parallels, Thine Own Self (Troi fails to stop a warp core breach on the holodeck), All Good Things...

94. As a child, Spock's life was threatened. How was he saved?

95. Who was the first captain of the Enterprise? (No, not Scott Bakula.)

Ah, getting into the animated series, are we?

93. They got really, really big.
94. A le-matya, a big electric blue reptilian leopard, attacked him while he was undertakinga traditional Vulcan childhood ordeal. His pet sehlat (giant teddy bear with long fangs) saved him, but was fatally wounded, and he consented to its being put down (TAS "Yesteryear," written by D.C. Fontana and easily the best of the animated series).
95. If you mean Kirk's Enterprise, that was Capt. Robert April.

94. I guess I was overthinking it. The adult Spock goes through the Guardian of Forever to study the past, during a time when he was a child. Because he couldn't be in two places in the same timeline, the child died during the Vulcan ordeal. Spock then goes back again to save the young Spock's life. Same episode as above, TAS "Yesteryear."

Spock remembers his cousin being present during his childhood during the time of his trial to mark his ascent to adulthood. His cousin was Spock, sent back in time by the Guardian of Forever to aid him. A change in the timeline had resulted in Spock dying as a child and being replaced as first officer by an Andorian. I can't remember exactly though the circumstances that Spock was in that required his future self to help.

And as far as the Scotty question - (this is really, really obscure, and I know I'm right, but will get clobbered by others who will swear I'm wrong, but)...the plans were clearly labeled "Constitution Class"...which is well and good, if Scotty's taking a trip down Memory Lane...since NCC-1701-A was actually "Enterprise Class" (1701-A was actually orginally christened as a different vessel - which was an "Enterprise Class" ship - and then re-registered after the destruction of the original, re-fitted NCC-1701).

Niven's long-short was "The Soft Weapon". And it was not a Slaver weapon but a tnuctip weapon, in Niven's original. That was the whole point: although it was in a Slaver stasis box, it was an order of magnitude more advanced than any of the Slaver stuff that had been found to date.

Stiles.

Kirk used the nickname that was probably in wide use in Starfleet IIRC "The great experiment." Sulu agreed, enamoured no doubt by the possibilities of transwarp drive. Engineer Scott declared that if his Grandmother had wheels, she'd be a wagon.

Takei should have been Captain for more than just TUC and that episode of Voyager :mad:

113.) As for Janeway's dog, what was happening when Voyager's mission to the Badlands began?

It was having puppies.

114.) Where else have we seen an Irish Setter in Star Trek?

TNG, didn't a shape shifting carnivore consume one on board a rear end of nowhere Starfleet station and assume its shape? Can't remember the episode, but it was another one of those ep's where Geordi just can't seem to snag a decent woman.

For Khan and any other fans of the USS Excelsior design, here are some good pics: http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/scans/excelsior1.htm

Yep, I think it was the Mirror Universe Kirk, who said something to Spock like "You want money? Power? A ship of your own? I can get that for you, Spock." To which Spock replied (with possibly his best delivery of the entire series), "Fascinating."
I also loved his deadpan "I can answer none of your questions at this time" in response to Mirror-Kirk's ranting demands to know what happened to his personal guard, his uniform, etc.

You're both wrong in answering "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield."

The title that the episode originally called "Portrait In Black and White" finally aired under is taken from a line by Shakespeare, the guy who left his second-best bed to his wife.

Though I do see that "Portrait In Black and White" would fit "Battlefield" better.

Correct on Pavel=Paul.

The Conscience Of The King, I presume (From Hamlet.)


Or possibly Mirror Mirror from the line "Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all" in Romeo & Juliet.

130. The observation deck above the Enterprise's main shuttlebay is shown in only one TOS episode, when Kirk and a female guest visit it. Which episode?

131. Near what nebula is the Enterprise-D to meet the USS Kearsarge in TNG "Firstborn"?

Yep -- close enough. If I recall correctly (and I think I do, because it was one of my favorite Q lines), it was:

Go ahead, ask some more questions!

Sir Rhosis
12-09-2006, 11:58 PM
Okay, but I'll give the answer to one of my more obscure ones, since most sane people wouldn't know it! :D

The Mugato was called a Gumato in the script, but De Kelley kept mispronouncing it as Mugato, so everybody else called it a Mugato too. I think one line (Shatner's?) made it into the episode where he calls it a Gumato.

Uh, new questions:

133. Name the TOS film which had these early story/script titles -- The War of The Generations, The Omega Syndrome, The Undiscovered Country.

134. Who was considered for the role of a nutty college professor the crew of the Enterprise was to meet in 1986 in The Voyage Home? The role was eventually rewritten to be that of marine biologist Gillian Taylor (Catherine Hicks).

135. A (fake, I hope) rock thrown by one of the natives of a planet bounces off the head of an Enterprise crewman in this episode. The actor ignored it and kept running. Name the episode.

136. In 1996 the producers of DS9 decided to make a tribute to TOS episode. Of course it was Trials and Tribble-ations. What other episode did they almost make a sequel to? Describe briefly what the plot of this ep would have been.

137. What TOS episode's story outline was called The Sons of Socrates?

Sir Rhosis

Khan

137.) "Plato's Stepchildren"

136 is damned intriguing. I wish I knew.

Sir Rhosis

Correct on 133 and 137.

The Genesis Device was origianlly the Omega Device, Khan.

129.) The Sutherland.


Right. Later referred to, in passing, as a "party ship" or the like on DS9 (apparently the Sutherland's crew liked to party hearty). Also the name of Horatio Hornblower's Royal Navy ship of the line, and thus an homage to Roddenberry's concept of Kirk = Hornblower.

Here's a list of the questions that haven't been answered (completely) so far. There are some that haven't been confirmed as right or wrong, but I didn't include those. Apologies if I skipped any, or used any that have already been answered. For the ones I asked or looked up, I put the answers in spoiler boxes.

28.) Which one of Phlox's pets did he use to clear the Xindi neural parasites out of Hoshi's nervous system?
They were "no match" for his Osmotic Eel.

29.) How many members of Khan's crew got killed by the Ceti Eels?
They killed 20 of my people. Including my beloved wife.

31.) What do Bajorans do when somebody dies? For how long?
2-hour death chant

32.) When exposed to the Manheim Effect, Data violates his programming. What does he do that should be unable to do?
He uses a contraction. That one was tough. I was thinking it was something in the plot, not a scripting error.

35.) Name 5 of the ships destroyed by the Borg at the battle of Wolf 359. Bonus: how many Starfleet ships were lost there?
Ones I could remember: Kyushu, Melbourne, Saratoga (Sisko's ship), Tolstoy, Ahwahnee. 39 losses total.
Others mentioned in the dialogue or shown on screen: Bellerophon, Bonestell, Buran, Chekov, Firebrand, Gage, Liberatore, Princeton, Roosevelt, Yamaguchi


36.) In STIV, what hospital was Chekov taken to after he took a dive off the deck of the "Enterprise?"
Mercy Hospital

40.) What is the combination to Kirk's safe? (The correct answer can be expressed in three words)
Note: I assume that "get a life" is a joke :dubious:

44.) Name an officer who was among the few in Starfleet never to have tried Romulan Ale.
Admiral William Ross

45.) What cocktail did Data prepare for Deanna Troi after she beat him in a game of 3D chess?
Samarian Sunset. It's clear until you tap the glass and it turns orange in a lovely display of color.

57.) Spot and her kittens weren't the only non-humanoids on the Enterprise to fall victim to Barclay's protomorphosis syndrome. Which other pet did we see transformed, and what did it devolve into? Bonus: identify the mistake in this question.

Picard's lionfish Livingstone was transformed into a Jellyfish. I actually ran across this a couple days before this thread got started. I'd be willing to bet that no one apart from the production team and the guys who posted that on their site would have ever noticed that.

As for the bonus, only Spot transformed. When Data and Picard saw that the kittens were unaffected, that clued them into how they could cure it.

68.) What formation [Wesley Crusher and his team] supposed to be flying [when they tried the Kolvoord Starburst and crashed]?

Diamond slot formation.

72.) In ENT: "Vox Sola," what did crew members of the Enterprise do to inadvertently offend the visiting Kretassans?

They were eating in openly/in public. To the Kretassans, that's an intimate act akin to mating. Uptight bunch, aren't they?

76.) What is the Intrepid class' maximum rated warp speed?

9.975

82.) Name the Federation diplomat who shacks up with Zefram Cochrane.

Nancy Hedford, played by Elinor Donahue

84.) What is Christopher Pike's highest known rank?

Fleet Captain

85.) The crew of what Vulcan-crewed starship plays the DS9 senior staff in a baseball game?
The T'Kumbra, commanded by Captain Solok.

88.) Apart from phase discriminators, emotion chips (and any associated baggage, eg sadism), and use of contractions mentioned so far, name another way to distinguish Data from Lore.
At least in the first season, Lore had a facial tick.

89.) You might remember that one of Edward Jellico's first acts as captain of the Enterprise-D was to "get that fish out of the ready room." What living creature did he essentially replace it with?
He put in a potted plant where Picard's Shakespeare volume used to be. To be more specific, the plant was some variety of evergreen.

99.) Who were the first people (as far as we know) to separate their middle and ring fingers?

117.) What is Spock's computer-expert rating?

A7

119.) When discussing a knotty time-travel conundrum, Janeway tells Kim that if he doesn't believe her, he should ask...who?

125.) Which character name (one of the regulars) was misspelled in the credits for The Undiscovered Country. How was it mispelled?
I'm surprised I couldn't find an answer for this one even on IMDB.

127.) Todd Bryant played Klingon Captain Klaa in The Final Frontier. Name his two other TOS film roles.
He was the Klingon translator during the trial in STVI, and an engineering Cadet in STII

140.) What game did Data lose the Zakdorn observer in "Peak Performance," the episode where Riker takes on the Enterprise in a war game exercise? What happened in their rematch?

141.) What recently discovered phenomenon was the Voyager's warp drive designed to accommodate?

Correct. The story that Ronald D. Moore pitched was this. Sisko and crew return to Iotia to discover that the communicator which Doctor McCoy accidentally left behind a century earlier has caused an upheaval in the imitative Iotian society. They figured out how to use the communicator to tie into Federation databases (or something like that). They then proceeded to download all the logs of the various adventures that Kirk and his Enterprise were involved in. They became such devotees of Kirk and his crew that they have patterned their entire society on them. They dress like the various Star Fleet officers on that ship, gather together in huge convention halls and act out the many adventures.

In short, they have become rabid Trekkies...

You're welcome. Sorry about 131.

I came up with Habeas Corpus through some half-assed mixing of the anti-changeling hysteria on Earth leading up to the Dominion War, the Bashir/Romulus/Section 31 conspiracy episode (even though that has nothing to do with Habeas Corpus), and various questionable activities in the war on terror.

Guess I didn't really think that one through, huh?

No one's answered it yet, so....

104. In which episode does Kirk wear all three kinds of Starfleet shirt?

TOS "Court-Martial." He's got on his green captain's-choice shirt when he reports to Commodore Stone on Finney's supposed death, his dress-uniform shirt during the court-martial, and his regular Command-gold shirt in several other scenes, including when he fights Finney in Engineering (and gets his shirt torn, of course).


[116.] I came up with Habeas Corpus through some half-assed mixing of the anti-changeling hysteria on Earth leading up to the Dominion War, the Bashir/Romulus/Section 31 conspiracy episode (even though that has nothing to do with Habeas Corpus), and various questionable activities in the war on terror.

Guess I didn't really think that one through, huh?...
No prob. I don't believe habeas corpus has ever been mentioned in ST (although that episode would be a natural place to do it). I was actually thinking of grand juries, which have become less common in both the American (state) and British legal systems in recent years. Odo is escorting/guarding Quark on the way to testify before a Federation grand jury in a DS9 episode; they get stuck on a forested world and have to work together to survive after a bomb destroys their Runabout.

I'll also answer this one, since no one else has:

119. When discussing a knotty time-travel conundrum, Janeway tells Kim that if he doesn't believe her, he should ask...who?

Answer: Himself! Kim recorded a message to himself in his own past, which Janeway suggests he watch.

40.) What is the combination to Kirk's safe? (The correct answer can be expressed in three words)

I swore it was the same as our office combination and looked it up in Memory Alpha. There would appear to be at least two different combinations from this trivia (http://memory-alpha.org/en/index.php?title=What_Are_Little_Girls_Made_Of%3F&printable=yes#Background_Information).

Same actor (Robert Duncan McNeil) and very similar back-stories. In fact, Paris was supposedly based on Locarno. I believe the chief difference is that Paris was considered redeemable, whereas Locarno wasn't - which is why they created a new character instead of just using Locarno.

You aced it. Well done.


That's not what I heard. I'd heard if they'd used the name Locarno, they would have had to pay residuals to the author of the original TNG episode.

154.) What present-day slang/metaphor did Geordi learn from Zefram Cochrane that he found particularly funny in First Contact?

153: Self preservation circuit?

154: 'Take a leak'

162.) (From the novelization) In The Wrath of Khan, how much space did the game take up that the Lab guys were writing in their spare time? What planet did it 'swallow'?

You're right; that was certainly a factor. But Locarno also came off as a much bigger jerk than Paris, so even besides the name change, they were pretty different characters.

Plus Locarno had more hair. :D

160) Roykirk? (I think Jackson is the first name.) I know I read about this bit of cross-over-ness on the website that explains how almost every show ever broadcast is really the dream of the autistic kid on St Elsewhere. Knight Rider had (or mentioned) a character who had been mentioned (but had not appeared) in an episode of TOS. They included enough detail in KR to be sure that it was the same character, even if no one was meant to notice. Roykirk was the creator of Nomad, whom it mistook Kirk for.
