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.
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)
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?
Bingo. So the Federation started the war. And the only thing I would add is that the war is anathema to the Federation. We aren't war-mongers which is why the Federation hasn't started a war after we were attacked, however, "We're losing the peace, which means a war may be our only...hope." War brings hope. More DS9 morality. Of course, you would've gotten extra credit if you said "The Klingons started the war." It's wrong, but the circumstances were created by the invasion of Cardassia.

Re: Deep Trek Knowledge

Re the first question's jokey answer:

It's not and wasn't a gay bar. It's supposedly the oldest bar in San Francisco: The Saloon (link) at 1232 Grant St. in North Beach, and it still looks about the same as it did in 1986 . As Sulu is from The City, maybe he's smiling because he recognizes it. Hell, maybe it's still there.

I meant Joan Swift (Aurelan Kirk), but the Charlie X actresses were before even that, CorporalCaptain knowledge exceeds mine.

Maybe I should have said "credited actress."

Well, here's Auelan Kirk. I'll leave it to the fashion experts to decide if she's wearing a catsuit or just snug overalls.

Does my half-right get a question? We've had another correct answer to my first question. So I guess this thread is a little jumbled right now.

Here's a question, feel free to answer or ignore: Who is Anthony DeCurtis and in what episode did he appear?

Ds9 - Whispers. Some random security guy. Anything more will be copy and paste from Memory Alpha.

Who was the first star trek character to play a musical instrument, and in what Movie or show did they play the instrument?

This was in "The Cage". It was the musicians who played while Vina danced as the green Orion slave girl. But there are four of them.

Yes, bbjeg, answering the best we can, and then asking...

What episode was the term United Federation of Planets first used in TOS?
The Changeling, "Federation" was mentioned a half dozen times prior to that, but the full name was first used in The Changeling.

Nope. "A Taste Of Armageddon."

So, I think it's Spock on the Vulcan lyre in "Charlie X".

That would be my guess. Unless...voice is a musical instrument. Then, it would be Uhura singing.
