Multiple Characters
Zefram Cochrane


Borg: We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.


Emergency Medical Hologram: I'm a doctor, not a doorstop.

Defiant Helmsman: Main power's off-line. We've lost shields. Our weapons are gone.
Worf: Perhaps today is a good day to die. Prepare for ramming speed!
Defiant Helmsman: Sir, there's another starship coming in! It's the Enterprise!

Beverly Crusher: I have a patient here who insists on coming to the bridge.
Jean-Luc Picard: Welcome aboard the Enterprise E, Mr. Worf.
Worf: Thank you, sir. The Defiant?.
Jean-Luc Picard: Adrift, but salvageable.
William Riker: Tough little ship.
Worf: [incredulous] Little?
Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf, we could use some help at Tactical.
[when Worf takes control of Tactical, Riker approaches him]
William Riker: You do remember how to fire phasers?
[as he sees Worf indignant, he walks away smiling]

Borg Queen: Destroy them.
[Data pauses, then presses a button on a control panel, firing three quantum torpedoes at the Phoenix]
Borg Queen: Watch your future's end.
[suspense builds as the torpedoes move towards the Phoenix, but the torpedoes just miss the small warp ship]
Borg Queen: [realizing that Data has betrayed her] DATA!
Data: [in an angry tone] Resistance is futile! [breaks open the coolant conduit on the warp core and coolant starts to flood the room]

Borg Queen: Do you always talk this much?
Data: Not always, but often.

Data: Helm standing by.
Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Data, lay in a course for the 24th century. I suspect our future is there waiting for us.
Data: Course laid in, sir.
Jean-Luc Picard: Make it so.
[last lines]

Data: She brought me closer to humanity than I ever thought possible, and for a time...I was tempted by her offer.
Jean-Luc Picard: How long a time?
Data: Zero point six eight seconds, sir. For an android, that is nearly an eternity.

Data: Your efforts to break the encryption codes will not be successful. Nor will your attempts to assimilate me into your collective.
Borg Queen: Brave words. I've heard them before from thousands of species across thousands of worlds since long before you were created. But now, they are all Borg.
Data: I am unlike any lifeform you have encountered before. The codes stored in my neural net can not be forcibly removed.
Borg Queen: You are an imperfect being created by an imperfect being. Finding your weakness is only a matter of time.

Deanna Troi: If you're looking for my professional opinion as ship's counsellor: he's nuts.
William Riker: I'll be sure to note that in my log.
(Deanna passes out)

Deanna Troi: Time line?! This is no time to argue about time! We don't have the time. What was I saying?
William Riker: You're drunk.
Deanna Troi: I am not.
William Riker: [laughs] Yes, you are.
Deanna Troi: [very drunk] Look, he wouldn't even talk to me unless I had a drink with him. And then, it took three shots of something called tequila just to find out he was the one we're looking for. And I spent the last 20 minutes trying to keep his hands off me. So don't go criticizing my counselling technique.
William Riker: [laughs] Sorry.
Deanna Troi: It's a primitive culture. I'm just trying to blend in.
William Riker: You're blended all right.

Jean-Luc Picard: Begin auto-destruct sequence, authorization Picard-four-seven-alpha-tango.
Beverly Crusher: Computer, Commander Beverly Crusher. Confirm auto-destruct sequence, authorization Crusher-two-two-beta-Charlie.
Worf: Computer, Lieutenant Commander Worf. Confirm auto-destruct sequence. Authorization Worf-three-seven-gamma-echo.
Computer: Command authorization accepted. Awaiting final code to begin auto-destruct sequence.
Jean-Luc Picard: This is Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Destruct sequence alpha-one, 15 minutes, silent countdown. Enable.
Computer: Self-destruct in 15 minutes. There will be no further audio warnings.
Beverly Crusher: So much for the Enterprise E.
Jean-Luc Picard: We barely knew her.
Dr. Beverly Crusher: You think they'll build another one?
Jean-Luc Picard: Plenty of letters left in the alphabet.

Jean-Luc Picard: Good, they haven't broken the encryption codes yet.
Lily Sloane: Who? Those bionic zombies you told me about, the--
Jean-Luc Picard: Borg.
Lily Sloane: Borg? Sounds Swedish.
. . .
Liliy Sloane: [after seeing Borg drones for the first time] Definitely not Swedish.

Jean-Luc Picard: Lieutenant Hawk, set a course for Earth. Maximum warp.
Sean Hawk: Aye, sir.
Jean-Luc Picard: [addressing the bridge crew] I'm about to commit a direct violation of our orders. Any of you who wish to object should do so now. It will be noted in my log.
Data: Captain, I believe I speak for everyone here, sir, when I say...to Hell with our orders.
Jean-Luc Picard: Red alert. All hands to battle stations. Engage.

Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf, do you remember your zero-G combat training?
Worf: I remember it made me sick to my stomach. [crestfallen] What are you suggesting?
Jean-Luc Picard: I think it's time that we took a little stroll.
