Airing from 1966 to 1969, Star Trek: The Original Series featured a lot of high-tech equipment. Some of the technology we saw would appear only once throughout the series while others would go on to be used in the follow-up Star Trek series and movies 

This quiz will test your knowledge of these various gadgets and gizmos seen throughout the series.

Good luck! Oh, and one more thing. Live long and prosper!
