Four-Play

A set of four quick questions for the quizzing enthusiasts:

1. After making the first trip on board Phoenix to showcase his new technology, Zefram Cochrane used a phrase to describe what could be done with the technology. What phrase?

2. Captain Robert April, Captain Christopher Pike, Captain ______ _____, Captain John Harriman, Captain Rachel Garrett. Fill in the blanks.
Hint: The middle name of the Captain is Tiberius and he is the only person in history to have defeated the computer war simulation called Kobayashi Maru

3. The members of this group progressed through four levels: first the Padawan, then the Knights, the Masters and the Spirits. Based on the function they perform they are classified into three groups: the Guardians, the Sentinels and the Consulars.

4. His name is derived from Sanskrit and means warrior. Who?

Hmm, the web is a strange place. There are people whose blogs you regularly visit and yet dont know their true names. For example, I am not sure if Chand is his real name. Come to think of it, I didn't know Arnav was the guy behind The Lost Highway.

Anyway, the answers:

1. To boldly go where no man has gone before.
Zefram Cochrane was the inventor of the Warp Drive and he made this statement immediately after the first flight.

2. James T. Kirk

3. Jedi

4. Master Yoda

To rip a DVD, the easiest way would be to download DVD Decrypter and AutoGordian Knot. First decrypt the DVD to your HDD and then use AutoGordian knot to convert to AVIs.

Rule of thumb: Anything around 90 minutes, go for 1 CD. Anything over 90 minutes, go for 2 CDs. For exceptional movies like LOTR, buy the DVD. :P
