    What ship held, Khan Noonien Singh and his fellow super humans, until the Enterprise discovered it (bad idea).

    What warp speed are starships not allowed to pass because if this speed is passed sub-space tears?

    Warp 5! But can't the new designs let them go faster? (ie. Voyager?)

    Ok, this one should be impossible!

    What did the Enterprise crew try to do with the, Ilia probe, in The Orignal Motion Picture to make her/it easier to communicate with, at least on a more human level?

    That nerdy guy who was going to be Captain before Kirk pushed in, Decker or Deckard or whatever it was, he gave her a tour and tried to get her to play a game in the recreation room - and she looked at the piece for the game and puzzled over it for a second before saying 'This has no purpose' or some *****y crap like that). And Decker boffed her hard at the end, which certainly must have facilitated human-level communication.

    I now deem Cluny the nerdiest of them all! Good one my friend! Now I must think of another one.

    How does Dr. Crusher claim she knows Riker is bluffing?

    That one is easy...I think...you mean that episode, I don't know its name in english, where the enterprise is in this time loop?
    If yes...she had the feeling riker was going to bluff due to the repeating effects of the loop (I think Dr. Crusher was first to really discover it, before data pulled his trick "Three" later...made her appear really smart. I wonder why Data didn't get it.)

    Hope I am right?

    You are right...to a point.

    The episode, I believe, is called, "Cause and Effect". It is one of my favorites. Especially because you see everyone die within a minute in and you're all like, "wtf?!". Crazy!

    Your answer, although right...is wrong. The answer I'm looking for occurs before the event which you described. I'll give you a hint. Riker says something along the lines of, How did you know I was bluffing? Crusher then asnwers by saying, Because you ______________ when you bluff. When Riker hears that he seems very surprised, exposed, and embarrassed and Crusher only smiles.

    I know you can figure this out!

    ehem...if I remember it right Dr. Crusher always said that she "felt" he was bluffing, even in the first point. She then added something about the way Cdr. Rikers eybrow was moving...and then smiled....I don't remember more. It has been a while since I last saw this episode. It is one of my favorite ones, just as it seems to be for you though it has a certain "repeating effect".

    If I am wrong this time, the "All hands abandon ship" will have to suffice for me....I am going on a holiday to France tomorrow and wont have time for another attempt. I am sorry I just recognized the thread. I love Star Trek!!!

    lol I didn't read much of this thread so forgive me if it was posted but i'm still laughing at this IMDB entry that has Matt Damon as Kirk in the next star trek movie.

    I know they need a new movie or series soon to do well or else the "execs" will lose interest in the franchise completely though. I hope this isn't their choice even though I know Damon's name could sell movie tickets.

    If we still had rep I'd give you some! Crusher says that his left, I think, eyebrow raises when he is bluffing.

    Lord Rahl, is that clip in your avatar from the new CGI update of the original series? If so, have you seen anyone of them (assuming they have been released) and whats your verdict?

    Oh, nice one!

    Rhah, I haven't seen the new ones yet I'm afraid. Me and my roommates don't have a TV (because we choose not to). I want to see them though. TOS in 5.1?! **** YEAH!

    I don't think the clip in my avatar is from the new TOS. I think it is from DS9 but it could also be from Enterprise as well. I'll get back to you on that.

    EDIT: Question added!

    What is this?

    That's the Omega Particle, the ultimate sub-atomic particle that defines cosmic-organisation, outlawed by the Federation because research into it can cause destruction of sub-space, and highly sought-after by the Borg for its symbolic representation of perfection.

    Its not V'ger is it? Or something to do with Species 8471? (is that the right species number?)


    Ok, a fairly easy question: What is the ideal matter-antimatter intermix ratio for a starship travelling 200 light years at Warp 7.5?

    The intermix ratio is easy - it's a trick question, as Wesley Crusher divined with such contemptuous ease - there can only be one intermix ratio for matter-antimatter - 1:1.

    I think that picture is a Species 8472 warship, though it's hard to make out clearly.

    Yep, t'was a fairly easy one.

    and seems I was only one digit out with the Species 8471/8472 guess., although looking at the pic again it reminds of something from Babylon 5
