Only because it's so fun to torment you ... that's no, no, and NO! :[]]

And you were tardy with the Hardy. ):(

Now that that's done ... "Monitor and the Merrimac" is kind of a cool guess, but those two were considered ironclads, and predate the battleship by almost half a century.

Still, like you've heard thousands of times before, no doubt ... I like the way your mind works. 8)

Remaining unanswered:

3. For four points, who said, "What an artist dies in me"? (Clue: He never owned a violin.)

5. For four points, what famous magician received condemnation from Saint Peter for attempting to purchase the power of the Holy Spirit? For one more, what word did his name inspire? (Michael, you should get both of these.)

6. For five points, who was the last pharaoh of Egypt? (Beware; this one's a trick question.)

7. For two points, what mathematician is more famous in lay circles for his theological "Wager" than his contributions to his discipline? For one more point, what is his first name? (Clue: Said first name should get you all "fired up".)

My guess would've been the last Pharaoh was Cleopatra, because after her the Romans took over...

Cleopatra VII is an excellent and educated guess, but ... it's wrong. Her son, Caesarion, was briefly elevated to pharaoh after his mom's death. Then the Romans offed him.

Like I said, trick question.

Sorry, lafr, but I can't accept "The Slaver 'Thing'", close though it is. The rest of your answers were spot on.

Remaining unanswered questions:

For three points, how many planets are named for Jonathan Archer? For an extra five points, list all of them here.

For two points, near what planet does the embattled Enterprise-D give the Klingons a "pasting"? For an extra point, in what episode does this occur?
