How well do you know the memorable Gorn episode of Star Trek?

Enter the "Arena" and take on this quiz!


The original Star Trek series was philosophical, strange, deadly serious and wonderfully wacky – sometimes all in the same episode! One of those episodes is the first season outing “Arena.” It has since become a legendary entry in the franchise for its reptilian villain – the Gorn. Though immensely strong, the green, glitter-eyed monster doesn’t exactly move at warp speed.

How well do you remember this iconic space adventure? Test your might, at least when it comes to Star Trek details, in this “Arena” episode quiz!

Truly one of my favorite. And the classic line from Spock to the Dr. If he has the time Dr., if he has the time. Tim Randolph in Calufornia.

Yes, one of my favorite episodes. Still I missed (2). Disappointing to me but looks like I need to watch it again. The famous line, Spock says,” If he has the time Dr. , if he has the time” love that message. Tim in California

You got 12 out of 12 - You devised the right strategy during this battle. Great job! Rather easy but I do know mt Trek, hence my name. Especially this episode, my fantasy football team was called The Gorn.

Movie Quiz for 07-01-2022
If your looking for a movie to watch and hold on to. This is the one folks. These here boys are the cream of the crop. They have a proposition given to them on some work to do. It's not exactly easy work in the tune of big time dangerous. You've seen their faces and names all across cinema. One for sure being a top 10 actor of all time especially during this period. They are all full of guile, ingenuity and clever planning. There are 7 top name actors in this one being a woman. 6 of the 7 have been the number one actor of a movie or 10. IMDb rating of 7.3 is some lower then it should be. I would give it 7.8 without a doubt. So give it a rip an answer so I can post the movie.
Was going to give an extra clue. Then again there are some Quiz Wizzes out there to topple me in quick order. Like Poncho Villa and his banditos robbing me blind...........

Yesterday when I was having problems it was my PC speed which for some reason it slowed down everything. I had 7 windows open and when I ran a Speed Test it was like 55/24 instead of like 300/300. I tried everything and even finding someone put Mcafee program on my PC on 6/29 without my consent. I went to control panel and found it and deleted. Also reset my modem by unplugging and I was back up to speed. I just got this new system all run by wi-fi. Which means everything including PC and TV is wireless. Though TV has a very small receiver but its the wifi that it runs off of when playing TV. Also I may have MeTV on my Directv next Friday. It used to be AT&T TV but changed to Directv and MeTV at the top of the page states it is coming to AT&T Dallas channel 136. I hope so. I do not have a channel 136 yet but on the 115 I shall see.

Imagine that. Someone from BC area calling my landline. I get like 20 calls a day on it from those I do not know. I do not answer unless I know who it is. Now I have blocked most of those numbers from ringing my phone. Though my cell in the last 9 months I have only gotten like 2 spam calls period. Even though blocking numbers those people who call hoping to hack you change their numbers daily. Okay don't forget the MQ later.

I got a call one time years ago. Your PC has a problem and we will have to shut it down unless we can get in and fix it. Causing problems to the controllers. Can you believe it. They want me to give them the code to get control of my PC. I yelled some at them to you know what. I hang up now quickly but now they have a system when people complain to put possible spam on your readout. So don't even bother to answer. Except this one person who calls like once a month. I did and told him to dont ever call me again. It was from CA Inc or something like that. Usually it is tons of calls wanting to get you into a program for Medicare or whatever. They are given a list of thousands of numbers and when you answer you can hear the click of them picking up their phone. They do not want to be on it unless they know you answer. They say hello--I said you called me. Then hang up fast cause I do not wish to hear their speech. G help us all, huh

Your PC or phone may be running slow. You have too many things you need to clear out the data, cache or browsing data. You can run a speed test on PC. My phone was slowing down too because it is running off of wi-fi which runs my PC internet to boot. Though I do a optimize at settings on phone most everyday. Also your memory may be too full and you can do a clean on it via settings also.
