Was this a vintage arcade game or a classic sci-fi TV character?

Can you tell the difference between a quarter-eater and a Klingon?

 

If Scrabble allowed the use of proper nouns, these would score big points. Because when it came to naming video games and sci-fi characters back in the day, creators loved to utilize those Q's, Z's and X's. 

A name like Zaxxon or Korax just sound so much more outer-spacey. But were they arcade games or sci-fi characters?

Below, you will find a bunch of names. Some were arcade cabinets in the early 1980s. The others were were characters in MeTV shows like Star Trek, Lost in Space and Buck Rogers.

Try to sort them!

Because so many parents complained about "Tapper" being set in a bar, bad enough it was a video game kids could play, there was a "G-rated" redesign called "Root Beer Tapper" so little ones wouldn't be corrupted by the evils of demon rum. I swear I'm not kidding.

Cleaned up for first time - ever 18 of 18! Playing old school games and all those years of watching Lost in Space helped!
