  THEY CAME FROM OUTER SPACE
Independence Day
Roland Emmerich, 1996
.......................................................................................................................................
Everyone remembers what happened to Spock (Leonard Nimoy) at the end of this film, but we wonder how many recall his fate in the training exercise that opened the film. Would he survive or perish if we reprogrammed the simulation so that the opposite would happen?
Forget the world. Save the aliens! You know who may have been front-and-center in that unlikely crusade? Jasmine (Vivica A Fox), if they could swim and looked like NIOPLHDS. Unscramble that eight-letter word.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
(1) He'd perish (2) Kirk had a fondness for antiques. The reading glasses were 400 years old. (3) Lasers weren't used in the 23rd century to correct a person's vision, drugs were. Kirk was allergic to Retnax 5.  (4) They were killed by the planet's only remaining indigenous life-form - a small, but deadly sand creature that wrapped itself around a person's cerebral cortex.
(5) Because Kirk was well aware of the regulations.

(6) He used it to find the Reliant's prefix code in order to disable the ship's shields. (7) Preston was Scotty's nephew (8) Spock thought it could be an impulse turn. (9) Yes, he did. (10) "I have been, and always will be, your friend. Live long and prosper."


Independence Day
She had a thing for dolphins
 
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
..................................
2. There was a copy of Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities under Kirk's (William Shatner) arm when his character was reintroduced. That was a birthday gift from Spock. McCoy's (DeForest Kelley) gift was a pair of reading glasses. Why were those particular items chosen?

3. That brings us to our next question. Why would anyone need reading glasses in the 23rd century? One would think that lasik surgery would be so far advanced by then that it could even cure blindness. Explain that one.

4. Now killing twenty-two… twenty-two. Good, it ain't us. What explanation was given for the death of Khan's (Ricardo Montalban) wife and twenty of his people?

5. Stop us if we've asked you this question before, before we finish asking it. Spock cut Saavik (Kirstie Alley) off in mid-sentence

when she asked for permission to quote General Order 12, which had something to do with establishing communications with an approaching vessel. Why?

6. You're getting the same amount of time that Kirk got when he was ordered to hand over the information he had on the Genesis project to answer this question, which is what did he do with those sixty seconds?

7. No one took Preston's (Ike Eisenmann) passing harder than Mr. Scott (James Doohan). Why did the young crewman's death have such a profound affect on the ship's chief engineer?

8. If this question is on our Starfleet entrance exam, we ain't acing it. What did the sporadic energy readings that were picked up near the Reliant's port side aft indicate?
9. Remember Dr. McCoy's "Green-blooded, inhuman" remark? We do. Did Spock bleed green blood in his final hour?

10. Kirk's eulogy ended with the words, "Of all the souls I have encountered in all my travels, his was the most human." What did Spock say to Kirk right before he passed away?
