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!

11/18 Most were guesses, as I never watched any of those shows, and wasn't a gamer.

12/18, Don't watch Lost in Space or Buck. Astroids is the best.
