With the new Star Trek XI movie hitting the theaters, more people are putting aside their regular mundane issues of life and death, and asking themselves the really tough questions:

Am I a Star Trek fan?  Or am I a Trekkie

Here's a quick sorter to give you a rough idea!



  1. What's better: BoBW or TATV?
  2. Who do you go drinking with - B4 or Lore? Who waters your plants when you're on vacation?
  3. You fall in love with a Vulcan. Where & when do you spend your first "honeymoon"?
  4. Where in the Star Trek universe can you find the elusive "Freakasaurus"?
  5. You're having a baby. Either Noonian or Arik will be driving you to the hospital. Who do you choose?
  6. You're married. Who nags you about your socks on the floor?
  7. Your next accountant: Quark or Rom?
  8. What ship makes Picard nostalgic?
  9. Corbomite or Carbonite?
  10. You're at Sisko's for dinner with Nog and Counselor Troi. Do you eat the the gumbo or have what Troi is having for dessert?
  11. Archer & T'Pol discovered a nebula. What did they name it?
  12. Why was Archer so sympathetic with Trip after the promotion of the Cogenitor?
  13. Why can there be no justice?
  14. The Borg have found your shield frequency. Orders, Captain?
  15. What has no bloody A,B,C, or D, and where is it?
  16. Who seeks "Peaceful Coexistence"? 
  17. A galactic lifeform has imprinted on your ship and is sucking the energy dry.  Simplified metaphor, Captain?
  18. Why did Beverly know she was caught in a warp bubble?
  19. Was DaVinci a fat guy or a thin guy?
  20. Prax:  Moon, Ship, or Forehead?

Calculating Your Trek Mojo:

< 0
You are what is known as a "moviegoer".  But there is hope for you!  Take this test again in a few weeks.  If your score has improved, you are metamorphosing into a Trekkie!

<10 
You are a Star Trek fan.  Chin up!  Even Zephram Cochrane had to start with a dream (and a nuclear warhead).  You have an application to Starfleet Academy.  Do you mail it in?  The choice is yours.  The choice is yours.

11-16 Correct: 
You are a Trekkie!  Congratulations would be given, but none are required.  You are already too cool for internet social affirmation.  So crack open a bottle of Aldeberran whisky and a plate of Racht, pop in your favorite Trek DVD and live the life of the righteous!

17-20 Correct:
Are you wearing your uniform right now?  Go and put it on, you know you want to!   You are a Trekker though you may self-deprecatingly refer to yourself as a Trekkie.  You know everything from the first words of the Horta to what day the new torpedoes are arriving to what Phlox secretly feeds Porthos.  Book yourself a Vulcan neuropressure session - you deserve it!

20^n Correct:  You are the Cytherian Barclay of Star Trek Knowledge and this test fills you with righteous superior scorn!  You warrant a continuum or wormhole in which to dwell in your hyperadvanced Trekdom!


Remember kids, knowing is half the battle.  Q'Pla!
