Identify the game please

There was a popular game at the arcade but can't remember its name. It was early 90's and can be categorized as space action & shooting. All acting was taking place in a station at space or another planet (maybe Moon). Most memorable thing about game was, there was quiz at the end of each stage. You could gather points by correct answers. Can you identify?

No idea.... where you flying a craft?  What kind of questions? Need more details.

   It wouldn't be questions, rather than statements, But wonder if that wasn't Gorf.

Maybe I'm wrong, but, as far as I remember, there was no quiz in Gorf. This game is known for its use of synthesized speech, a new feature at the time.

No, no aircraft. You were a person in spacecraft suits who shooting automated guns, jumping over barriers and other obstacles. Mostly inside of a space station like advanced place.
Quiz was in text. You were taking 4-5 question quiz when advancing next stage. I remember one question was about Star Wars. Other questions were related with Pop culture, mostly.

Sorry for the late answer. The game was from Final Fight era (thus similar graphics). Not that early as Gorf.

It was a standard joystick + 2 (maybe 3) button game. I really have no idea about its platform.

Space Gun?

Unfortunately not.

If anyone ever played the game, he/she will remember it because the quiz section at the end of every stage.

You could find it by looking at the year and style categories in one of the UI MAME builds. Might even be listed in 'puzzle'.
