Nelson,

I'll think a bit more on this.  I can't think of any other episode with an exclamation point yet, but I'll keep at it.

Sounds good Scott.

In the mean time, I came across some information today about who actually bought the Galileo last year when it went up for auction. I frequent a YouTube channel for a former Hollywood make-up and effects guy. He actually did the ears for Spock in the Motion Picture among his credits and is a big Star Trek fan. The guy who bought the shuttle and then donated it to the Houston Space Center was in one of his videos visiting his shop.

What I didn't fully understand was who he is and what his involvement with the project was. The guy who runs a prop collecting blog was also one of the guys involved in buying the shuttle.

Anyway, the guy who did buy it and was involved in the restoration is interviewed on space.com and it's a good video if you have a free 10 minutes. I know we've discussed this before and you guys may have linked this before. But I don't recall this one. The guy with the shaved head is a fan and collector too who frequents a prop forum. I was surprised of his participation in contributing the small access panel innards which was discussed on another website.

So far, if I've counted correctly, Lee has identified 5 and Scott has identified 9 titles with punctuation marks.

That makes 10 TOS episodes titles with punctuation marks. I originally only had one title in mind from a spin off episode, but you guys found quite a few more with punctuation marks other then the exclamation mark I had in mind.

Thanks for the link, Nelson! I really liked that video. I'm so glad he bought it; they seem to have done a terrific job. I admire people who have the vision to look at something in terrible condition and see the potential in it. I also like that Don Marshall came to the opening.

Alright Mr. Spock, you have all the answers. What now? :)

I'm glad you liked that video. As far as I understand the history of the shuttle, that the video touches on, it went through several owners who tried to restore it and then to have it fall onto hard times when funds and ability was less then what was needed. So further rot and decay took its toll. Based on the results, those ship builders where the best choice and these guys had enough money to pay for the restoration! I was surprised at the auction price of $60,000 or so. That's attainable. But the cost to restore the shuttle I'm sure was many multibles of the purchase price.

I don't know if I'll ever make the pilgrimage to Houston, but that will be a stop over for sure! I did see it in an earlier restored state and it wasn't near as nice as it looks today.

Oh yeah, it was very cool to see Don Marshall there! Too bad more of the Galileo crew were not there.

Nelson,

 

We're still working on the spinoff episode, right?

Scott, you have the most answers, so you're in the lead. And I think you said you still wanted to see if you could name the spin off episode with the punctuation I had in mind. So yes. Technically, you're the winner of this round, the spin-off is a bonus. I appreciate your tenacity though to try to find it!

Do you need a hint?

Nelson,

Thanks.  Yes, I think naming the series (unless that's too helpful) would be a nice hint.

Nelson,

Wow.  I thought for sure that it would have been from TNG.  Okay, I shall cogitate the possibilities for a time.

Nelson,

Okay, is it Rise!, or are you looking for a different punctuation mark?

Scott, I checked Memory Alpha, the title I'm looking for is the only other episode to have an exclamation mark. Hard to believe too!

Rise was not the one.

Nelson,

That is hard to believe.  The only other episode I can think of with a punctuation mark (excluding apostrophes and commas) would be 11:59.  We saw this episode a couple of weeks ago.

11:59 is another Voyager episode with punctuation marks.

If it helps, it was a fun episode.

BTW, here's a better hint. If you recently saw 11:59, are you watching each episode in order? If you are, then the episode that has the exclamation mark was several episodes before 11:59.

Nelson,

I'm stumped (without looking it up).  I have no other guesses after Rise!

Scott, the episode involved the Holodeck. I'll keep feeding you hints. :)

Nelson,

Okay, I checked a master list, and other than Rise!, no episode of VOY has an exclamation point in its title.  So I don't know how to guess at this point.  I thought of Bride Of Chaotica, but that too is listed as I have it written here.

Yes, Captain Proton to the rescue!

 

I was beginning to wonder if I was being fallible again and had the wrong information. According to Memorial Alpha, Bride of Chaotica! and Operation -- Annihilate! are the only two episodes with an exclamation mark in the title in the entire franchise. 

 

Part of the reason this episode was filmed was to make use of other sets as the bridge was damaged from a fire. The bridge scenes were filmed weeks later. The episode also had great fun with the Flash Gordon send-ups and jokes about the planet set seeming familiar. 

 

Your turn Scott.
