I'm tired of all the political threads. This is a little bit of everything type quiz. If you didn't know I was a nerd before, you'll know now. At least I'm an all encompassing nerd. Please don't google...that'd be cheating. (Actually, I'm not sure that some of these can be found on google.)

1. Who was the mechanic/tow truck driver in The Dukes of Hazzard? Way to go, SDog!

2. What was the unit number for the garbage masher Luke, Han, Leia and Chewie were trapped in?

3. What did Roddenberry originally name the Starship Enterprise?

4. In Star Wars, The Empire uses TIE fighters. What does the acronym TIE stand for? Zae. It was invented by the guy that actually built the model for the fighter. I can't remember his name though
5. Which Star Trek actor was missing his right middle finger?
Doohan is correct! Legend says that he lost it in WW2. Don't know if that's true or not. When shooting the scenes where they had to show his hands, they used a stand in for the shot.

6. In Firefly, what kind of man is Mal? (incidentally, this is in my top five favorite lines from Firefly) Gil, Firefly nerd
7. What class space station is Babylon 5?

8. In the mines of Moria, the Orc screams were actually what animal? Zae got it. They are actually the nocturnal mating calls of opossums souped up on a 'puter.
9. What was the highest grossing football film of all time, before being beaten by The Blind Side?

10. RJ, from Swamp People, is a four time US champion in what?

Sorry, SBC, that's not even close.

The Longest Yard and Rudy are also incorrect for #9.

I'm thinking that the Mal quote is that he's a good man. From his line, "They say mercy is the mark of a great man.(Stabs the opponent) I guess I'm just a good man".

You're all around it. The only reason I know is because they mentioned it on some show the other day when they were talking about the blind side.
