  4. #12 is the from Star Trek: Deep Space 9
    #10 looks a lot like the Game from the Star Trek: the Next Generation episode "The Game" to me but I guess it's something else
    Is #8 from Buck Rogers?

  5. Carl: Yes! #12 is from Quark's Bar on DS9. #10 is indeed from the TNG episode "The Game." And -- wow -- great identification -- #8 is a game from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, from the casino episode "Vegas in Space!" Brilliant!

  11. Hi Brian,

    Welcome to the party! #4 is from another episode of Space:1999, but not from Year 2. Still, that's an amazing id. This is from "Black Sun."
