 Try a handful of other phrases “for even more surprises,” CBS teased:


“Alexa, red alert!”

“Alexa, beam me up.”

“Alexa, what is your mission?”

“Alexa, fire photon torpedoes.”

“Alexa, speak Klingon.”

“Alexa, revenge is a dish best served cold.” (Though CNET warns that “Her response to this is loud and might frighten your neighbors.”)

“Alexa, state Starfleet rank and class.”

 “Alexa, what would Scotty say?”
