Deep Trek Knowledge

Ok, show your wealth of knowledge on all things Trek...answer the question and ask one of your own...
...example?...I will start...in the scene just before the "Yellow Pages" billboard in IV, Sulu looks into the window of a bar, and when he turns back, we see him smile...why?...

In a deleted or aborted scene, Sulu met one of his ancestors on the streets of San Francisco in the form of a little boy named Sulu.

My question:
What episode was the term United Federation of Planets first used in TOS?

Nope...the patrons knew ST would be filming, and as Sulu looked in, one of the female patrons raised her top to show her ample nacelles...true fact...but we continue...

The Changeling, "Federation" was mentioned a half dozen times prior to that, but the full name was first used in The Changeling.

What actress was the first to wear a catsuit costume in Trek?

Re: Deep Trek Knowledge

Here's one that seems to stump Star Trek fans (I know the answer): What was the impetus to start the war with the Dominion? Who started the war? What were the circumstances and why had we not gone to war until that point?

So simple, yet it stumps A LOT of Star Trek fans.

I'm thinking you mean Gates McFadden in TNG "Chain of Command part 1"....unless this is a bit of a humorous question and you mean Antoinette Bower (Sylvia in "Catspaw").

I assume you mean the start of full-blown hostilities and not the cold-war following the destruction of the Odyssey.

Fighting began when the wormhole was mined to prevent further Dominion ships going to Cardassia. Sisko was loth to begin hostilities until Bajor signed the non-aggression pact with the Dominion. After that DS9 was the target of Weyoun and Dukat.


I can't think of a question right now.

Didn't the Federation start it in DS9's "The Jem'Hadar" after invading their space twice (the second time with a Galaxy Class).

Hey HIjol, are we answering to the best of our ability and then asking a question, or only asking if/when we're right?

My Question:
Who is Judith Sisko? (No googling)

Judith Sisko is Ben Sisko's sister.

Wait, are you saying the Dominion were just standing their ground?

If, upon entering the Gamma Quadrant, the Dominion sent out a ship and calmly communicated to them "This is our space, stay out of it or we'll blow you up", they most certainly would have done so. Its hard to say the Federation were the aggressor when they were given no reason to think they were unwelcome in the GQ until the point when they attacked New Bajor.

The action that heated up the cold war was mining the wormhole. The reason they had not gone to war at that point is that the Dominion prefers long term strategies to short term ones and would have rather divided AQ powers against themselves and slowly built up a power base in the AQ until they were so powerful any resistance would have been impossible. The action that started the cold war was the Dominion's unwarned violent response to the founding of a colony in the GQ.

I will guess that Judith Sisko is the woman who Ben grew up calling mother, based only on the fact she's the only other woman named Sisko we ever hear of.

What is the earliest appearance in a Trek series of an actor who played a main character in Voyager?

Yes, when the war started in "A Call to Arms." And you're close. Ships have been coming through the wormhole for months. Why did they decide to mine the entrance to the wormhole at that time? They know it will start a war, right? Why did they want to cut off the supply lines to Cardassia? You have half of it, but it's the other half that most others don't get.
