    All right, for all you Trekkers out there, here's a little trekkie quiz.

    All questions are on the original series (TOS). If there is enough interest, I'll do some more on The Next Generation, DS9, Voyager, the films and general Sci-Fi.

    Here goes:

    1. In the TOS episode “Return TO Tomorrow” Kirk, Spock and McCoy allow aliens temporarily to occupy their bodies; which host proves so attractive that the alien doesn’t want to leave?

    2. What is the name of Cpt Kirk’s nephew?

    3. In the “Space Seed” from TOS, how long had Khan been asleep?

    4. In “Spector of the Gun” in TOS what Wild West gang do the Enterprise crew get cast as?

    5. What is Chekov’s middle name?

    6. To whom does Spock say: “I object to you. I object to intellect without discipline. I object to power without creative purpose”?

    7. What was the first Star trek episode to be screened in Britain?

    8. How long was the original mission of the Enterprise?

    9. In “The Trouble with Tribbles” who is described as “a swaggering, overbearing tin-plated dictator with delusions of Godhead”?

    10. In “A piece of the action” Kirk explains the rules of a supposed Beta Antares IV game that he’s just invented; what is it called?

    11. The first inter-species kiss was between Spock and which other crew-member of the original Enterprise?

    12. Who played Khan in the episode "Space Seed" and in the movie “The Wrath of Khan”?

    13. What was different about the opening to the original pilot episode, “The Cage”, compared to those that followed?

    14. Who says to whom: “I don’t know much about the Tribbles yet, but I’ve found out one thing about them: I like them better than I do you”?

    15. What is the name of Spock’s wife?

    16. What is unusual about Spock’s appearance in “Mirror Mirror”?

    17. Apart from Kirk and Spock, which character appears in the most episodes of TOS?

    18. Name the two men who Captained the original Enterprise before Kirk.

    19. Who is older: Leonard Nimoy or William Shatner?

    20. Who shared the first inter-racial kiss on Star Trek (if not TV) and what was the episode called?

    OK then. Post your answers or PM to me. Closing day will be next Saturday @ 18:00 GMT

    I don't know if you mean AJ's questions, mine, or both. I answered all of AJ's questions either from memory or looking them up with Google in about 15 or 20 minutes.

    In 1976, a megafan of Star Trek named Bjo Trimble wrote the Star Trek Concordance which was the first of its kind. It has info on all of the original series episodes plus the animated series. I used it to get ideas for my trivia questions. :wink:

    Google is cheating you should know or not.

    I thought I was quite knowledgeable in star trek but i can only do about 5 or 6 from each one.

    I wonder how my ex work collegue would do? All you had to do with him was mention part of an episode and he could tell you everything about it. That goes for all incarnations upto voyager

    I was very heavily into Star Trek TOS trivia in the 1970s but I never got the "bug" for the other series. Also, TOS has only three seasons and 80 something episodes so there's not that many to keep track of.

    As far as cheating is concerned, AJ didn't state any limitations or rules except the time frame so it's all fair. That said, I did answer 12 out of AJ's 20 questions from memory and two are actually guesses.

    I'm quite the opposite - I never got into ST:TOS much... looked pretty hokey compared to Star Wars... but I was hooked on ST:TNG.

    I guess so... that 7 years between ST:TOS and Star Wars were an eternity, huh? ;)
