Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

Lights, Camera, Trivia
..................................
Nicholas Meyer, 1982
All questions and quizzes written by Philip Cerreta unless otherwise noted
..................................
For those of you who don't, the creature we just described is the Hydra. How was the beast referenced in the simulation that opened the film?

2. Imagine if you were put in a situation where someone else's life depended on the decisions you made. And then finding out that it was a no-win scenario. At some point, you'd probably lose your cool, wouldn't you? Almost any person would. Did Lt. Saavik (Kirstie Alley) lose her composure at any point during the test?

3. Kirk (William Shatner) beat the no-win scenario by reprogramming the simulation and changing the conditions of the test. That strategy led to a commendation. If you don't remember what it was for, ask yourself this question: What would have made him the logical choice to take this little project of ours into the 23rd century?
And the great beast rose up, striking in an instant, each of its nine heads lunging for whatever wandered into its lair beneath the lake of Lerna. If you know your Greek mythology, we don't have to tell you what dwells in those murky depths.
4. Why was the test an important part of every cadet's training?

5. If a spacesuit can shield a person from gamma rays, temperatures that would kill a man in a matter of seconds and the dangers of deep space, it should be able to withstand a sandstorm, right? The suits that were worn by Captain Terrell (Paul Winfield) and Commander Chekov (Walter Koenig) did. But what if a piece of debris cracked their helmets? If that happened on Ceti Alpha V, this element could have killed them.

6. Chekov knew that he found the remnants of Khan's (Ricardo Montalban) ship when he saw the words "Botany Bay." Did they appear in black lettering on a silver buckle or in silver on the surface of a black buckle?

7. Khan liked to brag about his superior intellect, but it
was his extraordinary strength that was first displayed. Do you remember how?

8. If Khan were captured alive, he may have been put on trial for his crimes against Chekov, Terrell and the crew of the Regula-1 space station. And if such a trial did occur, one of the questions may have been, "Both men became extremely susceptible to your ideas after you placed those dreadful creatures inside their ears, did they not?" Tell us why he could have answered, "That wasn't what happened."
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
(1) That was where the Kobayashi Maru's distress signal came from. The ship was adrift in a section of the Gamma Hydra quadrant. (2) No, she didn't. (3) He thought outside the box. The commendation was for original thinking. (4) Because it was a test of character. (5) The planetoid's atmosphere contained a high concentration of kraylon gas.

(6) They were printed in black lettering on a silver buckle. (7) He lifted Chekov up off the ground with one hand when he asked him why he was on Ceti Alpha V. (8) He dropped the creatures on the men's cheeks.


Star Trek: First Contact
Admiral Hayes wanted the Enterprise to remain in the Neutral Zone in case the Romulans decided to take advantage of the situation.
Star Trek: First Contact
Jonathan Frakes, 1990
Admiral Hayes (Jack Shearer) believed that a man who was once captured and assimilated by the Borg shouldn't be put in a situation where he'd have to face them again. That was why Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) was given direct orders not to engage them in Star Trek: First Contact. When he disobeyed that order, he risked the possibility of something else happening. If you need a hint on this one, try unscrambling the following word - ALMNORSU.
