One night only.
Saturday, March 28th at select Geeks Who Drink venues.
Set your phasers to stun, find your crew, RSVP and, generally, make it so on the event's Facebook page.
Quiz: the final frontier. These are the voyages of Geeks Who Drink Pub Quizzes. Their one-night mission: to celebrate Star Trek, to seek out new questions and new answers, to boldly go where no quiz has gone before.
On Saturday, March 28th, Geeks Who Drink Pub Quizzes will bring you a quiz that would be highly illogical to miss. Resistance is Futile: A Star Trek Quiz is coming to a quadrant near you. Check below for venues and times and make sure to arrive early.
Our strict no communicator policy will be in effect. Cheaters will be forced to exercise punishment protocol 9-alpha. Our quiz will cover the five live-action TV shows (The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space 9, Voyager and Enterprise) and the feature length films associated with The Original Series and The Next Generation. We won't make you relive the trauma of Star Trek: Into Darkness this time around. You will have to invite your weird friend who's always telling you Deep Space 9 was the best series to improve your odds of winning though.
Admission is $5 per person (neither federation credits, nor gold-pressed latinum will be accepted) and the more quizzers we have the bigger the prizes! You might want to come prepared with more than one team name though."Keeping Up with the Cardassians" will likely go fast.

THEMED QUIZ FAQs
Can people under 21 play? It’s up to the bar, and each venue’s going to be a little different. Check with them before you make any plans.
Should I wear a costume? YES! Some of our venues may have a costume contest if there's enough participation, but that's up to the venue and host.
How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets? You don’t. Get to the quiz venue early (we recommend at least an hour minimum) with cash for your entry fee to ensure seating. EXCEPTION LEVEL MIDNIGHT: The Alamo Drafthouse in Houston will run a reservation system for seats. See below.
Alamo Drafthouse Ticketing Instructions
1) Using the system you'll buy your tickets for your WHOLE TEAM. Did someone drop out? Need to add a player? We'll deal with that on the day of the event (come early).
2) Please don't leave empty seats. We're one big happy family and we're going to do whatever we can to fit in as many people as we can. Thus, no buffer seats, okay?
3) Don't get married to your spot in the theater. We reserve the right to reassign seats and/or move to a different auditorium, thus changing your row and seat assignment. Questions or concerns? Email quizmaster Stephanie Stone-Robb at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Is this a free quiz? No, it's $5 per person to play (bring cash!), and we'll ask you to pay for everyone on your team before we give you quiz materials.
What's the maximum/minimum players per team? There is no minimum, but if you want to win, you should have a fully staffed squad. Use our Facebook and Twitter to recruit. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always.
Can we play the quiz twice by traveling to another city? No. No. And no. First of all, that’d be impressive, because our themed quizzes are now always on one day (with the rarest of exceptions). Secondly, even if you figure out a way to cheat, don't do it.
Do spectators have to pay? Yes. Yes, they do. Spectators generally have to pay for sporting events, right? This also goes for Geeks Who Drink employees that aren't working at the event and the people they make love to.
Can my dad/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play? No. Six people max seated at a table and all players must pay.
Can you host this at BLANK bar in BLANK city? No. We host these at venues that meet certain criteria. So, if we're not in your city, there won't be a quiz. If we're in your city, and there's no quiz, we're sorry. Feel free to let us know if you think demand is there, and maybe next time we'll get it started.
Is there a prize for second place? Nope, this is winner take all. But second place is impressive; you should be proud.
How is the prize amount determined? In most cases, the prize amount is 50% of the total take. Why not 100%? Because we have to cover our costs of producing and marketing these event quizzes.
Will BLANK TOPIC be covered? Everything is fair game. Study hard. Apply yourself. And we never give clues.
How long will the quiz last? Our regular quizzes run about 1.5-2 hours, but themed quizzes require a bit more heavy lifting in terms of logistics, scoring and extra stuff we may have planned. Average is about 3 hours.
I'd like to help promote the quiz/talk to you on my podcast/contribute some bonus prizes. Great! Contact us at email@example.com and we'll see about making that happen.
