More Jeopardy! Trek
Proving that it is deeply ingrained in popular culture, Star Trek clues show up on Jeopardy! regularly both as a category and within other categories. For example, in September of this year the show had a Double Jeopardy category “COMPLETES THE STAR TREK EPISODE TITLE.” Trek actors have also shown up on show reading Trek video clues including Jeri Ryan and just last week one was ready by Enterprise’s Linda Park. And last week Voyager story editor Lisa Klink wrapped up a 5 win streak on the popular game show. More Trek on Jeopardy! at J-Archive.
