    In this game, someone asks a question starting with "What if..." and gives a scenario. For example, the question could be, "What if Spock had turned against the Captain and taken over rule of the Enterprise?" And then the next person would respond, "He would have banished everyone with human emotions and the show would have been cancelled due to lack of humanitarian appeal." Then the responder starts the next question. I'll start us off.

    What if Mr. Spock actually had a love affair with Nurse Chapel?

    It would have been purely physical on Spock's part, and eventually Nurse Chapel would have gotten tired of the fact that his eyeshadow was better applied than hers.

    What if Charlie X had stayed on board and had a run-in with the evil children led by the angel?

    They probably would have been able to take over the ship and then they would make Kirk dress up like barney the dinosaur and have fist fights with bones!

    What if captain kirk announced he was Gay in the second episode?

    Then Kirk would have had to seduce Trelane and Apollo and some Klingons and somebody else would have to hook up with all the little green girls!

    What if the drug had not worn off in time for McCoy in "City on the Edge of Forever" and Kirk and Spock discovered that he had been arrested for manslaughter.

    Kirk would have volunteered to testify against him and asked Edith to marry him, without regard for the preservation of history. However, thanks to Spock's logical sense, he would have pinched all of their necks, killed Edith, and carried Kirk and McCoy home to the restored Enterprise.

    What if Spock had not been able to hypnotize the crew and make them realize that the bullets at the OK Corral shootout were fake and everyone had been killed?

    then all except Spock would have been killed, he would have been able to escape become captain of enterprise and the trek universe would have gone down the way it probably should have without sleazy kirk hitting on every female that blasted their way onto the ship!

    what if Spock suddenly decided to embrace his human side and his emotions?

    Then HE would have started hitting on every female that came their way and there would be hundreds of illegitimate half vulcan/half god knows what else running around the universe.

    What if Q had decided to make contact with humanity earlier and met Kirk instead of Picard?

    Then Kirk would have easily gotten the better of Q, and Q would have either (1) been destroyed, (2) self-destructed, or (3) left humanity alone for good!

    What if Kirk, McCoy, Scotty and Uhura had been stuck in the mirror universe?

    Kirk would've used the Tantalus device to eventually take over the entire Terran Empire, and had Spock command the fleet.

    What if Nomad hadn't been destroyed?

    Kirk, already accepting the fact that he's Nomad's "mother", would giveit a time out for trying to kill the Enterprise crew. Kirk would then file adoption papers for his new metallic son, with Spock in as "father" and Bones in the role of "strange uncle."

    What if Kirk had not been able to snap out Spock and the rest of the crew out of their spore possession in "This Side of Paradise"?

    He'd probably send out a general distress call to Starfleet Command and have them come clean up the mess.

    What if neither the Klingons or the Federation had found Organia?

    Then we probably wouldn't have had to sit through that unfortunate episode of enterprise featuring them.

    What if Spock had never regained his sight in 'Operation -- Annihilate!'

    Then Spock would have served out the rest of his days at a Federation think tank and Kirk would have a new first officer to abuse.

    What if Scotty had finally found a woman who reciprocated his affections but was jealous of his passion for his engines?

    He would have died earlier. He never would have been on the shuttle that got stuck on the Dyson Sphere. He wouldve ended up somewhere else with his woman .

    What if Worf would have been born in the TOS Era and met Kirk?

    Then he would have blown Kirks head off for hitting on his sister and Spock would have been made captain!

    What if Spock had been a woman (Still a Vulan though.)
