How well do you remember the Star Trek episode “The Naked Time”?

En garde! How well do you know Sulu’s swashbuckling soirée in the stars?

Many original Star Trek episodes stand out as fan-favorites because of intriguing storylines, unique aliens or situations that let us see characters in a new light. 

The classic installment “The Naked Time” reveals what happens when an unknown alien substance lowers the inhibitions of Enterprise crewmembers to the point where they act on their wildest impulses. This naturally leads to delightful moments that have now become iconic parts of the franchise.

I would have liked to see crewman Riley in more episodes then he had.
Mirramanee RichLorn 23 months ago
Agreed! He was a very likeable character.
Lacey RichLorn 23 months ago
He got a little annoying pretty fast. He was also in the very first episodes that had a different feel to them.

George Takai was really into swordplay! Reportably, he went around the set plaguing, poking and prodding everyone around with his swordplay.
RichLorn ELEANOR 23 months ago
Rumor has it that is the reason why Scotty was never seen sitting down.

You got 12 out of 15 - You were as sharp as Sulu's blade on this quiz. Great job! Not my best effort but I will take it.

Well, I blew # 12. No engineering job for me this life. Easy & amusing otherwise. :)

12 is wrong, I distinctively remember Scotty saying I'VE GOT TO HAVE 45 MINUTES
Snickers Randall 23 months ago
No. it is correct. Scotty tells Kirk he needs 30 minutes. If you watch the episode you will see the scene between Kirk and Scotty in engine room.
RichLorn Randall 23 months ago
Scotty was frightened. He had to have 30 minutes for the engines and 45 minutes in the bathroom.

"I've got to have 30 minutes!"
Mirramanee Randall 23 months ago
It was 30 minutes. I recall him saying you can't change the laws of physics in that same scene.

UHURA [OC]: Entering planet's outer atmosphere, sir.
SCOTT: Captain.
KIRK: What is it?
SCOTT: He's turned the engines off. Completely cold. It will take thirty minutes to regenerate them.
UHURA [OC]: Ship's outer skin is beginning to heat, Captain. Orbit plot shows we have about eight minutes left.
KIRK: Scotty!
SCOTT: I can't change the laws of physics. I've got to have thirty minutes.

I started watching the reruns in the ‘70’s on channel 9, Chicago’s very own WGN and it was forever before I actually ever had seen a complete episode as channel 9 ran the show from 6:30 to 7:30pm. At 7pm, it was time for the shows on channels 2, 5, and 7!

12 / 15, I missed a few. Should have done better, I have seen the episode a few times.
JERRY6 23 months ago

No movie quiz tonight but a movie there will be. A comical horror movie and one of the best if you like British humor. That would be Shaun Of The Dead. Kick back and grab a snack but make sure your not tilting back a drink when you watch some of the funny scenes.

$hдun0fThεDεдd2004- 1 hr 39 min and 20 seconds. Rating is a huge 7.9 which would be in the top 1% of all movies. The uneventful, aimless lives of a London electronics salesman and his layabout roommate are disrupted by the zombie apocalypse. This will tickle your funny bone more then the one that might be scared. Shaun is half oblivious to most of this and his girl friend not too happy about it. Though the hero will come through when it is most needed.

Not sure what this has to do with "The Naked Time", other than that Simon Pegg is playing Scottie in the JJ Abrams Trek movies.
We’ll just check that out on this cloudy rainy day 🌧
