The TNG Quiz

The game is simple: answer the question in the last post and you get to ask a new question. The only restriction is that the question must be about TNG. If no one can answer a question for 24 hours, anyone may propose a new question and the answer for the unanswered question must be revealed.

I'll start off:

Which musical instrument can Riker play?

Trombone


In one episode Riker was married. Name his wife.

Jack London was primarily a 20th Century author (all his novels were written after 1901) and tafkats said "did the crew befriend"... so I think he meant Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens). But you're partly right in that he befriended Data and wrote some short stories before 1901.

But to answer your question: the Breen (since we see her apparently "read" a Ferengi. Just covering my ass!)

***

Let's step this up a notch, shall we? :

Name every episode in which we see a poker game aboard the Enterprise.

Bonus points: Name the episode in which a poker scene was written, but for whatever reason never made it into the final cut!

Re: The TNG Quiz

Why is there always someone who wants to turn a light-hearted, enjoyable little quiz into an overblown, complicated monster that requires more effort than anyone wants to expend?

It's not like I asked what the winning hands were. By my count, there are 13. List 7 and we'll call it even. If you'd like to cheat, you can find the answer in seconds using Google. Here's a video that may help:

Look, I apologize, I wasn't aware of the rudimentary nature of these quizzes. I've never participated in one (can you tell?). And the OP never said certain questions were off limits.

I won't make people wait 48 hours (let's say, 1/4th that long)... but, seriously? You can't name 7 episodes you see in the video? There must be people on this board that can handle the question. Surely.

Especially now.

Re: The TNG Quiz

As I said, if no one can answer a question for 24 hours, someone may step up and propose a new question. This rule prevents challenging questions from bogging down the thread and eventually euthanizing it. BTW, I welcome challenging questions, perhaps not at the difficulty level of Klingon Boggle, but challenging enough not to rely solely on memory or Memory Alpha.

On a personal note, I think Maxwell's question can be answered by someone. If people on youtube know how many openable panels Data has, surly a devoted forum can answer that question too.

Edit: lowered the threshold to 24 hours, edited first post.
