11/12. Got the last one because I remembered the rule for taking MeTV quizzes: Anytime "ALF" or "The Twilight Zone" is one of the answers, that's the answer.

11 out of 12
I missed the last one.
I thought that "Star Trek" won a Hugo Award for the episode "The City On The Edge of Forever"?
"Twilight Zone" never occurred to me.
All the others were pretty easy.
Not too much thought required.

11 of 12 ...and *mortified* that I messed #12!
(BTW, the title should read "Can you question these classic TV answers from real 'Jeopardy' episodes?")

If you are "Captain Dunsel" I guess you have an M5 computer in your home.
Maybe you can ask M5 what the correct answer to number 12 is?
Of course, it may say that YOU are unnecessary personnel.
