by Abi Luftig

Live long and prosper! If you ace this quiz, you certainly will! For all the Trekkies out there, Star Trek isn't just a show; it's a lifestyle. From all the characters that have been introduced to the Enterprise, can you name them from a single description?

In 1966, NBC premiered the latest science fiction series, Star Trek: The Original Series. Created by Gene Roddenberry, the series followed an outer-space starship crew that was traveling through the galaxy. The series would introduce the characters of Captain Kirk, Spock, and Bones, played by William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and DeForest Kelley, respectively.

With the success of the 1960s series, Star Trek would go on to release a long list of follow-ups. These include The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager. The 2000s would also bring in the prequels of Enterprise and Discovery. Through these six Star Trek series, they have introduced a host of popular characters. 

From Jean-Luc Picard to James T. Kirk, could you pick the proper Enterprise captain? What about Data, Odo, and Worf? Would a single sentence help you pick out these Star Trek characters? 

The Star Trek TV franchise has been around for over 60 years. Can you identify all these characters or will you be lost in the Milky Way galaxy?

Beam me up, Scotty!
