"Battlestar Galactica." (The stuff from the 70s is fun too! But Galactica 80 was bad.)

"World of Warcraft" or "Call of Duty": DC Universe Online.

"BioShock Infinite" or "Fez": "Batman Arkham" game series.

Droid, iPhone or Blackberry: iPhone.

"Asteroids" or "Ms. Pac-Man": "Asteroids" — Pac-Man has never really done it for me.

What character would you be in "Mario Kart"? Bowser — closest character to a Klingon they have.

Which family would you belong to in "Game of Thrones" — Stark, Lannister or Targaryen? Not a clue.

If you have a pet (what they are and what their name is): I have a cat, black with long hair, and her name is Janeway.

The one celebrity/icon (past/present) you would have wanted on your team on the show: My Dream team would be Kate Mulgrew, Vin Diesel, Dr. Wernher von Braun, and Galileo Galilee.

What planet other than Earth would you live on? Realistically it would be Mars. On2Mars! And in the "Star Trek" universe — Qo'noS.

Which house would you belong in Harry Potter? Ravenclaw.

IQ score: It does not matter.

Aliens: exist or myth? Aliens are out there, but NO they do not come to Earth, they are not at Area 51, and they don't probe people.

Favorite superhero: BATMAN!!!!!

Favorite video game: "Arkham Asylum" and "Arkham City."

Favorite TV show: "Star Trek Voyager" or "Batman: The Animated Series."

Favorite movie: Depends on my mood, way too many favorites to list.

Favorite musician or band: Celtic Thunder's Ryan Kelly.

Favorite musical instrument: Vocal.

Favorite book: Any short story written by Issac Asimov — "Nine Tomorrows" is probably my fave collection, it includes "The Last Question" <3.

Favorite game show: I don't really watch game shows.

Favorite Doctor from "Doctor Who": Not a Whovian — Give me a Browncoat instead.

Favorite "King of the Nerds" contestant from last season: Do Bobby and Curtis count? No? OK, Moogega.

If you were trapped on a desert island what three items would you bring?

A survival knife (not just any knife — mine has a smooth primary blade, a saw on top of the spine, and a serrated edge on the upsweep … a compass in the handle butt and a full pack in the handle including flint starter, fishing line, hooks, thread, etc. I would want to bring my 8-inch blade.

Military grade parachute (with harness, paracords and all the trimming) — has multiple uses, best of which include water collection and filtration systems.

Chris: He's training to be a paramedic so he can do the "doctoring" when I do something stupid and hurt myself! Which would happen! Ha! No Chris you say? A second knife or a military survival book.

If you could have a dinner party with three people (alive/dead) whom would you choose?

Honestly, I would be lame and ask for my sister Tasha, brother Brycee and best friend Chris, BUT I am sure you're looking for something more exciting. So if I had a holodeck and needed to talk to some of the greatest minds, the following:

Gene Kranz (Apollo Mission Control).
Werner von Braun (the man behind the entire space race just about!).
Captain Kathryn Janeway (Galileo Galilee if I can't go fictional).
