"Operation: Annihilate!" this quiz!

Writers for Star Trek: The Original Series came up with remarkably poetic episode titles. Who could forget tales like "City on the Edge of Forever" and "For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky"? That was the result of hiring acclaimed authors such as Harlan Ellison.

KISS, the iconic hard rock band in makeup and armor, penned some poetic stuff, too. Yes, we are talking about the same group that wrote "Lick It Up" and "Love Gun." Their lyrics had words that rhymed and everything, so that's technically poetry.

Let's see if you can detect the difference between a Star Trek episode and a KISS song. Try to rock 'n' roll your way through this unscathed!

08 for 16. Rough one, definitely not easy for me. Please consider bringing back WKRP after Labor Day.

I can see Kiss rocking out with the space hippies and Spock, {perhaps not Spock, since LN has passed.} in a reboot of The Way To Eden. Kiss goes intergalactic!
