KRDIN  =  DRINK,  VGEIN  =  GIVEN,  HARETG  =  GATHER,  GPSYIT  =  PIGSTY   —   Giving us:  RINGENTERPIS

Clue/Question:  Gene Roddenberry‘s ability to get “Star Trek” on the air in 1966 showed that he was . . .

Answer:  ENTERPRISING

(Just the guys showing their GEEKY side!  Actually, I am a fan, too.  Of the original series, and – a little less so – of “The Next Generation”.  After that I totally lost interest.  I also liked the movies, including the newer J.J. Abrams one, although some purists thought it was heresy!  Today’s clue words were scrambled well.  For the third word I started writing down TARGET  before realizing I wasn’t using the H, and I’d need another T.  I had to work a little to get “gather”, even though it’s a pretty basic word.  “Pigsty” gave me the usual trouble that all compound words do.  But, the scrambling of the answer letters was a huge step backwards, in my book.  The word ENTER stands out right in the middle of the letters.  Just switching the order of “pigsty” and “gather” would have made it:  RINGENPISTER.  That would have made it much more of a challenge.  My nephew, David, must have been in a hurry to get this one in.  “Live long and prosper”, friends!)   —   YUR

    Every clue word was pretty easy, but PIGSTY threw me a bit, even though I think we had it before! I got ENTERPRISING after GATHER! I don’t know why it took me so long! I wasn’t a BIG fan of Star Trek, but a fellow teacher was and had a bunch of Tribles in his room which he gave away at the end of the year reward party we had in 6th grade. The kids loved it!
