It’s time to go back in time to visit the Final Frontier. This week, we’re covering Star Trek Prequel Trivia. Specifically, the three films that have come out since 2009. The films were divisive, to say the least, but they did gross a lot of money and renewed interest in the franchise after it went dormant in 2005 with the end of Star Trek: Enterprise.
So, this week, we’re celebrating Star Trek’s 55th birthday with thirty trivia questions.
When you’re done with Star Trek Prequel Trivia, you can check out our other Star Trek episodes (or any other episodes you might like).
This week, we’re featuring a promo from Luke Barnes and Nick Goode’s show, The Consistently OK Podcast. They are currently doing a deep dive into the Batman movies, so check them out and tell them I said, “Hi!”
