Next, say: "Alexa, ask Star Trek for my daily trivia questions." One of the cast members of the new Star Trek: Discovery series beams you aboard. Alexa then poses a series of questions on everything from the original series to the new Discovery show.
6 Star Trek Fact
Now, let's discover some Star Trek trivia. Say: "Alexa, open Star Trek facts and tell me a fact." Alexa opens with a fact, such as: "Despite Picard's British accent, he was born in France where his family owned a vineyard." Alexa then asks if you want to hear another fact.

One such rule is: "Never kill a customer, unless you can make a better profit out of his death than his life."
9 Vulcan Me
Say: "Alexa, open vulcan me." Alexa tells you that you can say a phrase in English that you want translated into Vulcan. For example, say: "Vulcan me, live long and prosper," and Alexa provides the Vulcan translation.
10 Klingon Dictionary
For a different Star Trek language, say: "Alexa, open Klingon dictionary." Alexa asks what you want her to do. You can ask Alexa to translate a word or phrase. Say: "Translate 'Energize,'" and Alexa serves up the Klingon translation. You can also ask for today's word or a random proverb in Klingon.
11 Star Date Converter
Say: "Alexa, open Star Date Converter." Speak a specific month, day, and year, and Alexa tells you its star date, following by a bit of Star Trek trivia for a certain date.
12 Star Trek Sounds
Next, you can listen to some of your favorite Star Trek sounds without having to venture out into space. You can ask Alexa to play any of the following: Bridge Sounds, Red Alert, Computer Sounds, Transporter, Phaser Attack, Proton Torpedoes, Turbolift, and Tractor Beam.
13 Auto-Destruct Sequence
And if you're surrounded by Klingons, you can order your own ship's destruction by using the auto-destruct sequence that Kirk used to destroy the Enterprise. Say: "Alexa, Code Zero Zero Zero Destruct Zero." A countdown begins. After it hits 1, listen for the big boom.
