    Is this a trick question, because I'm coming up with Zero.






    Edit: Then I am going to kick myself when answered, because I'm drawing a blank. Must be the Mad Cow.

    Rebooted my brain. Note to self, don't try to answer unless I can focus. Lets try this again.

    Hide and Q (battle with the animal things)

    Time Squared (implied all but Picard got toasted)

    Yesterdays Enterprise (implied all)

    Cause and Effect (all, at least 4 times)

    The Next Phase (presumed with Ro)

    Parallels (at least once)

    All Good Things (all, 3 times/time periods)

    Let's see:

    Time Squared (enterprise destroyed)
    Cause and Effect (Enterprise shown exploding 4 times, but chronometers off by 17.4 days)
    The Next Phase (believed dead)
    Parallels (alternate reality death)
    All Good Things... (on board present and future Enterprises when they explode)
    ST: Generations (dies aboard crashed Enterprise saucer when Veridian star obliterates Veridian III)

    So, ten times?

    ***

    You could make the argument that Geordie is seemingly killed from the Ferengis point of view in "Peak Performance." You could also argue that the alternate Enterprise in "Yesterday's Enterprise" was about to explode and in any case that timeline was wiped out so that La Forge would also "die." In "Remember Me" from Beverly's point of view he ceases to exist. And in "Disaster" Ro argues that everyone in the stardrive section might be dead, which would include Geordie.

    Alrik, you forgot Generations. Sorry man.

    Maxwell Everett: I wasn't including those that you could argue except Yesterdays Enterprise since it's strongly implied.

    But, other than that, it's your go. :)

    Give the approximate order from first to last in which specifically stated people cease to exist in Beverly's collapsing universe from "Remember Me"?

    In this scene from Ménage à Troi, where Picard expresses his love Lwaxana, what part is not from Shakespeare?

    Tie breaker, if needed, will go to who can name the most plays and sonnets Picard cobbled together.

    My love is as a fever, longing still
    For that which longer nurseth the disease ~ Shakespeare Sonnet 147

    In faith, I do not love thee with mine eyes,
    For they in thee a thousand errors note;
    But 'tis my heart that loves what they despise,
    Who in despite of view is pleased to dote ~ Shakespeare Sonnet 141

    Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
    Thou art more lovely and more temperate ~ Shakespeare Sonnet 18

    Let me not to the marriage of true minds
    Admit impediments. Love is not love
    Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or bends with the remover to remove ~ Shakespeare Sonnet 116

    When I have plucked the rose,
    I cannot give it vital growth again.
    It needs must wither ~ Shakespeare Othello, Act V, scene 2

    'Tis better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all ~ Alfred Tennyson's In Memorium

    Wow. And you'd have won the tie breaker too.

    I looked those quotes up in my Book of Shakespeare Sonnets and after not finding the Othello quote I asked a teacher for the play - I knew I'd never find it by just looking through all the plays - and I already knew the quote from Tennyson.

    Tell me, did you look them up? or did you know them?

    Your turn.

    I knew the Tennyson, & actually knew the Othello as well. I'm somewhat familiar with the more well known sonnets, but had to look up some of the sonnets to find the more obscure ones, like 116. It wasn't that tough, considering that they are all the opening lines of the sonnets in question, speaking of which...


    When Bruce Maddox enters Data's quarters, he reads a passage from one of Data's books. What is that passage & its origin?

    Shakespeare's Sonnet 29:

    "When, in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,
    I all alone beweep my outcast state."

    ***

    In "The Most Toys," Picard picks up a book Geordi found in Data's room and reads a passage aloud. What is the passage and what work is it from?

    Correct! Well done

    We could probably have a quiz just for Shakespeare quotes on Star Trek

    I shall not look upon his like again."

    In which Episode is Shakespeare's As You Like It misquoted? And what is the misquote and what is the correct quote.

    We probably could do an all Shakespeare quiz for all the series.

    Q (Hide & Q) All the galaxy is a stage....

    Which Picard himself corrects as "All the world is a stage..."

    Good work. You're right. My English lit teacher would have taken points off though. Luckily, I'm not him.
    Your turn.
