[Kirk is invited to give a command to the new Enterprise-B.]
Kirk: "Take us out."
Chekov: "Very good, sir."
Scotty: "Brought a tear to my eye."
Kirk: "Oh, be quiet."
Scotty: "Finding retirement a little lonely, are we?"
Kirk: "You know, I'm glad you're an engineer. With tact like that, you'd make a lousy psychiatrist."
[Wiping blood off her mouth after Soran strikes her.]
B'etor: "I hope, for your sake, that you were initiating a mating ritual."
Dr. Soran: [To Geordi] "Normal is what everyone else is and you are not."
Captain James T. Kirk: "I take it the odds are against us and the situation is grim."
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: "You could say that."
Captain James T. Kirk: "Sounds like fun!"
Kirk: "Did we make a difference?"
Picard: "Oh, yes. We made a difference."
Harriman: "I read about your exploits when I was in grade school."
Kirk: "Oh really?"
James T. Kirk: "You left port without a tractor beam?"
Captain Harriman: "It doesn't arrive until Tuesday."
Harriman: "The medical staff... doesn't arrive until Tuesday."
[Data, enthusiastic about his new emotion chip, is told to scan for life forms.]
Data: "I'd be happy to, sir. I just *love* scanning for life forms! [sings] Life forms! You pretty little life forms! You precious little life forms! Where are you?"
[Data finds a drink unpleasant - for the first time ever.]
Data: "I hate this! It is revolting!"
[The Duras sisters spy on Geordi.]
Lursa: "Where is he now?"
B'Etor: "Who knows? He bathed, and now he's roaming the ship."
Lursa: "He must be the only engineer in Starfleet that doesn't GO TO ENGINEERING!"
Data: "I get it! "The clown can stay, but the Ferengi in the gorilla suit has to leave!" I get it!"
Geordi: "Data, what do you get?"
Data: "The Farpoint mission! You told a joke; that was the punchline!"
Geordi: "The Farpoint mission? Data, that was seven years ago."
Data: "I know! I finally get it! Very funny!"
Dr. Soran: "They say time is a fire in which we burn; right now I'm running out of time."
Dr. Soran: "Now if you'll excuse me Captain. I have an appointment with eternity and I don't want to be late."
Kirk: "I don't need to be lectured by you. I was out saving the galaxy when your grandfather was in diapers. Besides which I think the galaxy owes me one."
Geordi: "I've never seen a solar probe with this kind of configuration, have you Data?"
Data: "No Geordi, I have not. [to his tricorder] Have you? [uses tricorder as a hand puppet] "No I have not. It is most unusual." Mister Tricorder!"
Kirk: "Who am I to question the captain of the Enterprise?"
[Kirk's last words.]
Kirk: "It was... fun. Oh, my..."
Picard: "Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived. After all Number One, we're only mortal."
Riker: "Speak for yourself sir, I plan to live forever."
Star Trek: "Where no man has gone before"
Lt. Mitchell: "Hey, man, I remember you back at the Academy; a stack of books with legs! The only thing I ever heard from an upperclassman was, "Watch out for Lt. Kirk! In his class, you either think, or sink!"
Capt. Kirk: "I wasn't THAT bad, was I?"
Lt. Mitchell: "If I hadn't aimed that little blond technician at you..."
Capt. Kirk: "You what?! You... you PLANNED that?"
Lt. Mitchell: "Well, you wanted me to think, didn't you? I outlined her whole campaign for her!"
Capt. Kirk: "I almost MARRIED her!"
Lt. Mitchell: "Better be good to me. I'm even getting some new ideas here."
[During a game of chess.]
Spock: "I'll have you checkmated your next move."
Kirk: [chuckles] "Have I ever mentioned you play an irritating game of chess, Mr. Spock?"
Spock: ""Irritating"? Ah, yes... one of your Earth emotions."
[Kirk checkmates Spock.]
Kirk: "You certain you don't know what irritating means?"
Spock: "The fact that one of my ancestors once married an Earth scientist..."
Kirk: "Terrible, having bad blood like that."
Kirk: "Dr. Dehner feels he isn't that dangerous! Now what makes you right and a trained psychologist wrong?!"
Spock: "Because she feels. I don't. All I know is logic. In my opinion, we'll be lucky enough to repair the ship and get away in time."
Spock: "We'll never reach an Earth base with him aboard, Jim. You heard the mathematics of it. In a month, he'll have as much in common with us as we'd have with a ship full of white mice."
Capt. Kirk: "But I need a recommendation, Spock, not vague warnings."
Spock: "Recommendation 1: there's a planet a few light days away from here, Delta-Vega. It has a lithium-cracking station; we may be able to adapt some of its power packs to our engines."
Capt. Kirk: "And if we can't? We'll be trapped in orbit there. We haven't enough power to blast back out."
Spock: "It is the only possible way to get Mitchell off this ship."
Capt. Kirk: "If you mean strand Mitchell there, I won't do it! The station is fully automated; there's not a soul on the whole planet. Even the ore ships call only once every 20 years!"
Spock: "Then you have one other choice: KILL Mitchell while you still can."
Capt. Kirk: [offended] "Get out of here."
Spock: "It is your ONLY other choice, assuming you make it while you still have time!"
Capt. Kirk: "Will you try, for one moment, to FEEL, at least ACT like you got a heart?! We're talking about Gary!"
Spock: "The captain of The Valiant probably felt the same way, and he waited too long to make his decision. I think we've both guessed that."
Capt. Kirk: [drained] "Set course for Delta-Vega."
Lt. Mitchell: "Command and compassion is a fool's mixture!"
Lt. Mitchell: "Morals are for men, not gods."
[Dr. Elizabeth Dehner breathes her last.]
Dr. Dehner: "I'm sorry. You can't know what it's like to be almost a god."
Capt. Kirk: "Captain's Log, stardate 1313.8: add to official losses Doctor Elizabeth Dehner - be it noted she gave her life in performance of her duty; Lieutenant Commander Gary Mitchell, same notation. [to Spock] I want his service record to end that way; he didn't ask for what happened to him."
Spock: "I felt for him, too."
Capt. Kirk: [amazed] "I believe there's some hope for you after all, Mr. Spock."
