20 questions, Trek Style
« on: April 22, 2007, 09:46:13 AM »
A shameless steal from Flare. I'm thinking about a person, object, species or whatever from the canon Trek universe. The board has twenty yes/no questions to guess. The winner thinks of the next challenge.

PS: Please don't ask more than 5-6 questions before I respond, that could ruin the game.

Ask away....  ;D

Is it female?

Is it powered by a matter-antimatter reaction?
Local fire-department is seeking a siren for new fire-truck. Must be willing to suffer near constant groin injury and genital trauma. No experience required, will train. This is a temp-hire position.

Difficult to answer for this one, I won't count it as a question.. Let's just say it's not a person it the traditional sense of the word.

No

HINT HINT: Questions of when it was first seen onscreen or similar questions might also prove enlightening.
