    I think that was a little TOO obscure!

    I'll post a question...

    Name some actors who were almost cast in the roles of the regular characters of TNG and what characters they would have played... At least three.

    I can think of three. He was seen with LT rank as a costuming error. He wore LCDR rank as established. He also wore the rank of CDR on his field promotions.

    Sounds about right to me. The error was in All Good Things, where he wore Lt (JG) pips, yeah?

    Your go...

    You got it. Any explanation on this? It seemed quite ridiculous. They could have streched his LT years out a few more seasons IMO. I guess the flaghship Chief Engineer position might have a rank requirement.

    Anyways, you're up.

    I always just assumed there was a minimum rank to be Chief Engineer, but they waived that at Picard's recomendation since Geordi was really good at his job. But, decided to promote him to rank as soon as his experience/service record permitted. Course, that's just fan wank.

    Any-hoo...

    Linda Park dated and lived with this now well known British Trek actor for a time.

    Well played Tosk. You win via being technically correct. The actor was none other than Jon Frakes.

    You have control of the board.

    Hah! I didn't expect to be given control for that smart-ass answer. :)

    Which member of the cast other than Patrick Stewart has portrayed a Marvel superhero?

    Dang, I actually forgot all about that one. Well done!

    The Defector.


    How many times did we see Tomalak in TNG, not counting any kind of "take backs"? (eg: No holograms, clones, twins, erased futures, hallucinations, etc)
