Can you tell the difference between a Star Trek episode and a KISS song?

"Operation: Annihilate!" this quiz!

Writers for Star Trek: The Original Series came up with remarkably poetic episode titles. Who could forget tales like "City on the Edge of Forever" and "For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky"? That was the result of hiring acclaimed authors such as Harlan Ellison.

KISS, the iconic hard rock band in makeup and armor, penned some poetic stuff, too. Yes, we are talking about the same group that wrote "Lick It Up" and "Love Gun." Their lyrics had words that rhymed and everything, so that's technically poetry.

Let's see if you can detect the difference between a Star Trek episode and a KISS song. Try to rock 'n' roll your way through this unscathed!

16 out of 16. I have been a Star Trek TOS fan from its debut on September 8th, 1966. I think I'd better know every episode name by now. LOL

You got 16 out of 16 - If the Starchild or Space Ace quit KISS, they could always hire Spock! Just the opposite of sportster1988, as my name suggests I got my answers from knowing my Star Trek. Recognizing the Star Trek titles was no problem. I was sure to look for one where MeTV snuck in an answer of "both", which has fooled me before. But not this time.

08 for 16. Rough one, definitely not easy for me. Please consider bringing back WKRP after Labor Day.

14/16!
16/16!
I can see Kiss rocking out with the space hippies and Spock, {perhaps not Spock, since LN has passed.} in a reboot of The Way To Eden. Kiss goes intergalactic!

Everything else I knew.
