Good job. I could only name 11 so I said 15 knowing I missed a few.

Re: Deep Trek Knowledge

There's gotta be heaps more though. I just stopped when I got to the magic number.

Nog, Deanna Troi, Rixx, Taurik, Vorik, B'Elana Torres, Lon Suder...


Here's a question: Name all the main characters we see playing a musical instrument, and the instrument itself.

Spock (Vulcan Lyre, and piano)
Picard (Ressikan flute)
Riker (trombone, piano)
Data (violin)
Harry Kim (clarinet)

Do we count Worf singing Klingon opera?


Next question: how many "real" (meaning "non-constructed") languages do we hear spoken on Trek?

I'll Add Sisko - Piano
Uhura- Piano
Geordi - some type of mandolin something
Q-Trumpet

Next question: how many "real" (meaning "non-constructed") languages do we hear spoken on Trek?
English - French - German - and for the win, Spanish-


How many times has Geordi taken command of a starship?

Re: Deep Trek Knowledge

Still some more instruments to go. At least one real one and one "technical" one.

For "technical", are you counting the Doctor and Seven singing a duet? Uhura singing several times?

For that matter, I believe Uhura played (or was forced to play) a harpsichord rather than a piano in "Squire of Gothos."

I can't remember specifically: did "Kirok" play a drum instrument in the "Indian-amnesia" episode?

I actually didn't know a final answer when I posted the question. When were German and Spanish spoken? (I can think of a couple of French snippets with Picard.)

And, what was the language spoken by the background characters in the "Yellow Pages" scene from TVH?

Name every Trek main character who has ever died.
Scotty (Changeling)
Sonak (Most disturbing)
Ilia
Decker (Well, I guess he's still "missing")
Spock (II)
Tasha Yar (Skin of Evil)
All of Enterprise-D Crew (Cause and Effect)
Data (Time's Arrow)
Picard (alternate timeline in Parallels)
Captain Kirk (Generations)
O'Brien (although it was his replacement)
Kira (Children of Time)
Trip (Enterprise)

That's the best I can do off the top of my head.
How is Sonak a main character?

Q and the Trelene spoke some, German. Q also spoke some Spanish, I think. Your post just reminded me of one more.

English, French, German, Spanish, and Russian for the win

No, not thinking of singing.

There could be more, but there is definitely at least one more main character who has played an instrument, and one where the person playing the instrument was not a main character, but became one in the next series.

Oh yeah: Scotty played the bagpipes at Spock's funeral. Ironic since James Doohan IRL was missing a couple of fingers due to a war injury -- it was physically impossible for the actor to play that instrument.

Otherwise: Keiko O'Brien played clarinet on TNG, before the two O'Briens crossed over to DS9. I don't recall Miles ever playing anything, however (and I wouldn't consider Keiko to be a "main" character, only a recurring one.)


On the language question: I still haven't figured out the language spoken by the Yellow Pages folks in TVH. I did find out that the crew of the whaling ship in the same movie spoke Finnish.

He played the Cello. I think there was a scene where he was playing in Ten Forward.

That's the one. The other main character I was thinking of was Jadzia playing the keyboard in Equilibrium. I forgot about Scotty.
