Relieve a time when Star Trek: Voyager was a category on Jeopardy!
The good folks at Jeopardy! weren’t done after they had questions surrounding Star Trek: Deep Space Nine back in 1994. No, sir. Five years later, they ran it back again with the cast of Voyager. Cast members Tim Russ, Ethan Phillips, and Rober Picardo appeared for three different questions involving the show; giving the Voyager questions a bit of a different twist from the time they had Deep Space Nine questions.
The contestants are anything but up for the challenge this time around, as there was no “E.J.” for this round of questions. In fact, through the first four questions, not a single one of the contestants even tried to buzz in to guess the answer. They weren’t even hard trivia questions.
Thankfully that changed with the fifth question when the brave soul called “Scott” finally tried his hand and…he lost. It was a far cry from watching the other Jeopardy! video. Which was even more of a head-scratcher. Deep Space Nine aired in syndication, while Voyager was on a network.
That means that Deep Space Nine would air on different days and in different timeslots depending on the network, while Voyager was on one station and one time no matter what.
The questions were anything but hard, as you can see below. Did you struggle with any of them?
"$100 – On Voyager I (Tim Russ) play Tuvok, the first “Star Trek” series regular from this race since Spock.$200 – Voyager in the Delta Quadrant is trying to get back to this quadrant, its home.$300 – Neelix was given this job so that we could save the power the food replicators required.$400 – The 100th episode was directed by this man, Geordi La Forge on “The Next Generation.”$500 – With my mobile emitter I can now go anywhere, but initially I was limited to this area on Voyager."
