Star Trek Nerd Search: Quibbles with Tribbles

Impeccable Trekkie or eager amateur? Here’s your chance to take up our uniquely puzzling Star Trek challenge!

To make this head-scratching mash-up of Star Trek facts and Star Trek fictions, author Glenn Dakin and artist John Ross have recreated eight scenes from The Original Series and filled them with cunningly concealed continuity errors for fans to track down. How well do you know your stardates? How good is your memory of the Captain’s Log? Do those aliens belong at the ambassadors’ reception? Are the characters wearing the correct uniforms? And just what is that Klingon doing there?

Keep track of your successes with the scorecard supplied and compare results with fellow fans. And just when you think you’ve spotted all the continuity errors and are ready to beam up to the Starship Enterprise for a well-deserved pat on the back, don’t forget that you also have to hunt down the items from every episode of The Original Series that are hidden somewhere in these beautifully detailed pages. Hours of fun, frustration and forum-searching await!

Anyone who wants a perfect score is going to need a true nerd’s knowledge of Captain Kirk’s indefatigable mission to spread enlightenment across the universe. Even then, you’re going to have to hunker down with all 79 episodes of The Original Series and watch them again. After which you’ll probably realize you’ve missed something…
