16/20. Not bad. A lot of guess work involved.

Some were obviously "Star Trek" (Harry Mudd, Sarek, Gorn) and some I guessed.
Who was "Rodent" and what series was he, she, it on?

17/20. They had Rainn Wilson playing Harry Mudd in current “Star Trek” series. Before all of his troubles started, I could have seen Ron Jeremy as Mudd.

16 of 20. A lot better than I thought I'd do! Wib, Feeter and Gecko? Now I'm happy with just plain old Rob!

Don't you mean just "plain old 'Bones'"?

Thought I would know most of those names from Star Trek and get them correct by a process of elimination. Some just threw me, though.

Wib Smith... isn't that Will Smith's brother?

Who was "Rodent" and what series was he on?

Supposedly he was in ST-TOS in the "City on the Edge of Forever" episode. I'd have to see that episode again, but I don't remember anyone with that name.
