Feigning normality since 1973

Star Trek Search Terms

Filed in: Internet.

People keep finding the DiscCon entry for "Real Time" using the search text "What Star Trek race has exceptional hearing?" This, as it turns out, is actually a question from a "geek test". Why are you people cheating by googling the answer?! You can't expect to get an accurate result if you cheat!

Now, ordinarily I'd say Ferengi, because with ears that size... but then I'm sure Spock mentioned having exceptional hearing several times in the original series (followed by Dr McCoy making a racially-insensitive crack about his pointy ears). Also, Borg probably have cybernetically-enhanced hearing. Plus Jem'Hadar are probably bred with genetically-enhanced senses. And then there are the Hynerians who - no, wait, they're from Farscape.

Glad I could help!

The answer is: V'GER. V'GER can hear the carbon units infesting USS Enterprise very well.

Well, if you consider the Q a race... not to mention all the other uberpowerful beings...

Q probably doesn't do anything near as gauche as sensing vibrating air. :)

V'GER is that which seeks the Creator. V'GER could also kick Q's arse blindfolded.

To be honest I'm more of a Star wars person so when I saw it on the test I answered then I wanted to know what the real answer was.
