Jeff Bezos is a huge Star Trek fan, no doubt about it. Amazon’s voice-activated assistant Alexa is actually inspired by the series. “Our vision was that, in the long run, it would become like the Star Trek computer,” Bezos told the Washington Post in an interview. “It would be easy to talk to him in a very natural way.”

As described by Trek News, you can use the Echo, Tap, or Dot to issue a variety of commands from the series to get great results. Try “Alexa, open Star Trek” to get a three-part Star Trek quiz, featuring a star from the new series. “Alexa, damage report” will bring up the latest weather and news headlines. You can add some sound effects with “Beam me up”, “Fire photon torpedo” or even “Red alert!”

Geek Wire discovered a few more, and there are undoubtedly many more still waiting to be found:

  • “He speaks Klingon.”
  • “What would Scotty say?”
  • “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”
  • “What is your mission?”
  • “Starfleet State Rank and Class.”
  • “What would McCoy say?”
  • “Do you trust the Klingons?”

Bezos is such a big fan of Star Trek that he even managed to score a cameo in the film Star Trek Beyond movie. Bezos shared how he was cast in an interview at the 2016 Pathfinder Awards at the Museum of Flight in Seattle.

“I’ve been begging Paramount, which is owned by Viacom, for years to let me be in a Star Trek movie,” he said. “I was very persistent.” It’s easy to miss, decked out in alien makeup, so if you’ve got it Star Trek Beyond DVD, watch his eight-second scene at 13:12.
