This week's quibble comes from the Jan. 27, 2009 edition of Geek Trivia, "The wrath of comp." TechRepublic member anthony.saggese pointed out a glaring error in the reputed working title for Star Trek II:

"I forwarded this excellent article to a good friend of mine who is a well-known author of multiple Star Trek publications and movie producer. He noted the following: The original title for Wrath of Khan was actually ‘THE VENGEANCE OF KHAN, not REVENGE OF KHAN...ever.' As Spock would say, ‘Fascinating.'"

You are correct, that was a slip-up on my part when I was comparing it to the infamous Revenge of the Jedi decoy title to the third Star Wars film. Thanks for the quibble, and keep them coming!
