Dunno if knowing Scotty's clothing size in TOS, ST III and VII makes anyone a better moderator.

Haha, no, but maybe a deep knowledge of all Trek series and movies to date would show some kind of loyalty to the Star Trek brand, and therefore a willingness to not abuse their post. I don't mean stupid, obscure questions. Just some stuff that anyone who's gotten really involved in Trek over the years would know, or at least have an inkling of.

Examples:

Who killed Dr. McCoy's father and why?

What were the only words ever to be spelled in morse code in Star Trek and why?

Why did Khan so despise Captain (Admiral) Kirk?

What was Kirk's son called?

What was Chekov doing when he said "Scotty? Now vud be a good time."?

Why is it funny that in JJ's re-boot, Sulu said he was trained in fencing?

What are Jean-Luc Picard's brother and nephew called?

How did Jean-Luc Picard's brother and nephew die?

Stuff like that, you know?

I know. I would think a phone interview would be more appropriate. Then they can hear the plunking of keys as the interviewee Googles the answer. hehe

Although personally I believe more in the old saying "You pay peanuts, you get monkeys" which is why I always pay cash money.
Did someone say peanuts?! *applies*

Maybe Skype interviews? lol

What were the only words ever to be spelled in morse code in Star Trek and why?... again with STV?... Btw "Stand back?"

Why did Khan so despise Captain (Admiral) Kirk? because his "was superior"

What was Kirk's son called? David Marcus

What was Chekov doing when he said "Scotty? Now vud be agood time."? Standing next to the Enterprise Nuclear reactor.
with seaman rapidly approaching

Stuff like that, you know?
