(Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

Kelemane's planet sport Edit

The sport on Kelemane's planet was a seasonal athletic competition popular among the people of that planet during the pre-spaceflight industrial era and the spaceflight era.

The Doctor became a fan of the sport during the three years that he was living among Kelemane's species. Two of the teams, Mountain and Lakeside, shared a rivalry with one another for many years. There was at least one other team, Red River. Among the famous athletes were Torelius and his grandson. (VOY: "Blink of an Eye")

A tabletop game

While being held aboard the Krenim weapon ship in 2374 of an alternate timeline, Tom Paris played a tabletop game with Obrist. Paris won the game which consisted of two consoles and several chips on a larger board. Later, Obrist sent Tom Paris the schematics of the temporal core to one of the two tabletop consoles. (VOY: "Year of Hell, Part II")

On the call sheet of the day of filming, the game was simply listed as "Alien Game" in the props section.


Remote controlled toy Edit

A remote controlled toy

The remote controlled toy was a toy controlled by a remote used by children in the 24th century.

Alexander Rozhenko was playing with the toy when Jean-Luc Picard, who was temporarily turned into a child, asked to borrow it. It was used in the successful retaking of the USS Enterprise-D from a group of Ferengi in 2369. (TNG: "Rascals")

This object was simply referred to as a "toy" in both the episode and its script. The script described it as a "cross between a lunch-box and a spider [with] no apparent wheels."
The prop was initially put up for auction in the It's A Wrap! sale and auction. According to the auction description, the toy's bottom-side features hangars enabling it to be hung on a wall. [2]


San Francisco bar game Edit

In 2285, two patrons of a San Francisco bar were seen playing a game involving controlling simple hologram-like airplanes. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

Sheer lunacy Edit

Sheer Lunacy

Sheer lunacy

Sheer lunacy was an electronic puzzle game that was solved when the player deactivated all the lights on the sides simultaneously.

Tom Paris introduced the game to the crew of the USS Voyager in 2375. Captain Kathryn Janeway, who spent two fruitless hours trying to solve it, recalled that he was also "behind the last ship-wide craze – yo-yos."

Seven of Nine solved the game quickly by scanning it and determining that it operated on a simple fractal regression. When Paris told her that was cheating, she replied that "cheating is often more efficient". This provided inspiration for the Voyager crew to devise a strategy against the Think Tank. (VOY: "Think Tank")

The sheer lunacy prop was later briefly seen in a recreation room aboard the USS Enterprise-E in Star Trek Nemesis. The origins of the game are unclear, however, Seven of Nine referred to it as an "artifact", suggesting that it was not a "modern" device.


Streamer Edit

Game with sash

Children playing a game

On Makull's homeworld in 2371, children were observed to be playing a game involving running around while passing each other a sash-like object. (VOY: "Time and Again")

In the script of "Time and Again", this game was described as "an alien tag game with streamers." The call sheet is listing "Alien Streamers for kids" in the props section.


Wesley's game Edit
