The new 20Q Trek game

..stinks. I like the idea of it, but:

It crashed my comp, which has high speed internet, three times. When it does work, it works slow. It also barely remembers answers I already gave. After specifying that I'm talking about a planet, it asks me if it's Spot.

WTF?

It worked alright for me. It correctly guessed Niomi Wildman, after incorrectly guessing Millie.

I doubt some of the answers that other users have given, but it was mostly right.

Even on very fast connection (at the office) it was slow as hell, I'm not even going to try it here in the house.

Re: The new 20Q Trek game

Just tried it out and it wasn't to bad. It did struggle with a couple, but I think it was my fault it trying to explain it. I wanted to do "Andorian" and it took 26 questions to get to Shran, which was the closest thing I could find. "Self-sealing stem bolt" was another tough one, but I've never seen one up close so it was hard to describe it. It did fine with communicator, an easy one I know, and "gold pressed latinum" which it got "latinum" so close enough.

Kinda fun and I've bookmarked it so I can try again later. It didn't seem slow at all on my DSL connection, so I don't know why it was so slow for one of the other posters.

Worked for me! I thought of Riley from TOS although it did not guess it in time.

Re: The new 20Q Trek game

I managed to stump the game with "The Presevers", and "Denobula."

I was impressed that it was able to guess Dr. Soran, the villian from Genesis. I mean, half of the people that have seen the movie can't remember his name!

I was also amused by some of the quesions. When I had chosen Porthos, who was guessed in 20 questions, it asked "Could it fit in Odo's Bucket?" Porthos in Odo's bucket...that's a cute image.

Crashed on me too, it did that standard "crappy slow Flash site" thing where I would move the mouse over one of the buttons and then 30 seconds later it would slowly and jerkily do the sound effects and animation at about a frame per second.

Re: The new 20Q Trek game

worked perfectly for me.

I stumped it with Ru'afo.

I think it "learns" over time. I'll try it in a week and see what happens.

Silly game. I won the first time. I was thinking "Romulus" (well natch! ) and it guessed "Remus".
