TV Stars Mixed Trivia Questions

1. She kept all hailing frequencies open in her starship's travels. Back home on Earth, she ran a program to help women and minorities enter the space program and otherwise succeed in life. Who was this astronomic ambassador?

From Quiz
Ten Humanitarian Sci-Fi Stars of the 60s-70s

Answer: Nichelle Nichols

Nichelle Nichols portrayed communications officer Lt. Nyota Uhura, whose name means "star freedom" in Swahili (roughly), in the original "Star Trek" series and in the first six cinematic features. Uhura was a significant member of the multicultural crew and one of the first black characters portrayed in an non-servile position on U.S. television. She nearly quit over lack of lines, but Martin Luther King, Jr. encouraged her to persevere. It is not surprising that she drew on this character to do good work, and it also had long been Nichols' belief that for healing rifts in the human race, humanity must seek knowledge. She volunteered for NASA from 1977 to 2015 to help recruit people of color and women, and to that end she created and ran a program called Women in Motion. Famous recruits include Dr. Sally Ride (1951-2012), America's first woman astronaut, and Col. Guion Bulford, the first African-American astronaut, to name but a few. Nichols also actively worked for The Technology Access Foundation, which equips young students of color for success at university and in careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). She also supported the Planetary Society, co-founded by Carl Sagan "to empower the world's citizens to advance space exploration" (their mission statement). In 2015 she co-launched a large philanthropic endeavor in social media, StarPower, to benefit an assortment of social causes. Unfortunately, Nichols' younger brother Thomas was part of the Heaven's Gate cult and committed suicide with his comrades on the arrival of the Hale-Bopp comet in 1997. In 2018, Nichols developed dementia and retired from social activism and humanitarian work. The International Astronomical Union named an asteroid "68410 Nichols" to honor her work as a global ambassador for space exploration and for the advancement of knowledge.

Dame Patricia Routledge was nominated twice for BAFTAs for her performance as Hyacinth Bucket. She was also a regular contributor to Victoria Wood's television show.

She had a recurring role as nurse Margie Cutler on "M*A*S*H" (1972) and landed a starring role as Julie Kotter in 1975. She went on to appear in guest roles on several televisions shows and later landed the part of Rick Moranis's wife in "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" (1989) and "Honey, I Blew Up the Kid" (1992).

9. This street magician turned actor used his tricks while appearing in several episodes as 'Harry The Hat', a con man who fleeced the bar's patrons. Name this actor, who is best known for being a key part of the legal system on another TV series.

From Quiz A Trip to the Bar - "Cheers" Guest Stars

Answer: Harry Anderson of "Night Court"

Harry Anderson appeared in the first season (1982) of "Cheers" in Episode 4 and then in five other episodes throughout the years. Most of his appearances were of short duration but in Episode 19 of that first season, Sam used Harry to get back at a con man who had cheated Coach out of thousands of dollars. Unbeknownest to the gang, Harry and Coach pulled a big con and got all of Coach's money back and then some. Anderson went on to play the iconic Judge Harry Stone on "Night Court" from 1984-1992. Although the writers did not have Anderson in mind when they created the character, no one could have fit the role better. Anderson even loved Mel Torme just like his character, a pure coincidence. Anderson also starred in "Dave's World" from 1994-1997, a sitcom loosely based on the writings of Dave Barry.
