Watch: Trek trivia with the crowd at Star Trek’s 50th anniversary con

As Star Trek celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, we were on hand at the Star Trek: Mission New York convention to kick it with the fans. Oh, and we also brought some trivia questions along.

From softball questions to head-scratchers, we tested the knowledge of Star Trek super fans all over the convention center — and even tossed in some good straw poll questions for good measure (Riker: beard, or no beard?). There are also some decidedly spot-on impressions featuring some of the franchise’s signature phrases, plus an insane story about extraterrestrial poop (just trust us there).

It’s amazing to see this fandom come together around a shared love for Trek, and there’s no doubt these folks are bringing the knowledge. And apparently an abundance of piloting skills, for some reason. Trek fans are smart? No surprise, right?

Oh, and watch closely for our nod to the Riker Chair Maneuver.
