Personal, with 20 DQs down, this is the point where you would usually declare an end to future IQs. If you wish, you can also declare an end to any more DQs, although most of the time we allow people to guess those already earned.


DQ: Best known from a show before 1980?

Previous IQs:

Were you Odysseus's loyal son? - Telemachus
Noted for your sumptuous entertaining, did F. Scott Fitzgerald consider naming The Great Gatsby after you? - Yes, Trimalchio - very good! A working title for the book was Trimalchio in West Egg.
In an alternative timeline, did you take Cmdr. Spock's place aboard the USS Enterprise? - Cmdr. Thelin, an Andorian: https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Thelin

I yield my two DQs to whoever would like to ask them, one apiece.
