Star Trek: Voyager

Riddles - S6-E6

Corrected entry: At the end of this episode, Tuvok squirts frosting on a cake in a wavy pattern, and Janeway suddenly announces, "It's the frequency." A wavy pattern is NOT a frequency, it's a waveform. The frequency is the number of waves that pass through any point each second. There's no way to express a frequency to any reasonable degree of accuracy by squirting frosting on a cake.

Correction: If Tuvok has drawn exactly the same number of waves he saw on the tricorder then, knowing the size of the screen and available time scales, a number of possible frequencies could be calculated. Trial and error would be all that would be required to find the right one.
