And you people, you're all astronauts, on some kind of star trek.


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.

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.

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

William Riker: Everybody ready to make some history?
Geordi LaForge: Always am.
Zefram Cochrane: I think I forgot something.
William Riker: What?
Zefram Cochrane: I don't know, probably nothing.
Deanna Troi: Begin ignition sequence.
Zefram Cochrane: Oh God, now I remember!
Geordi LaForge: What?
Zefram Cochrane: Where is it?
Geordi LaForge: What?!
Zefram Cochrane: We can't lift off without it.
William Riker: Geordi, we've got to abort!
Zefram Cochrane: No, no, wait I've found it.
[Troi continues countdown]
Zefram Cochrane: Let's rock 'n' roll!
[plugs a small disc into a slot in the Phoenix's control panel]
Deanna Troi: Two...one...ze-AAH! ["Magic Carpet Ride" begins blaring through everyone's headsets and the Phoenix lifts off]

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]

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.

[as Locutus, in a nightmare] Resistance is futile.

[explaining 24th-century economics to 21st-century Lily Sloane.] The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives. We work to better ourselves, and the rest of humanity. Actually, we're rather like yourself and Dr. Cochrane.

Reports of my assimilation are greatly exaggerated.

[After Captain Picard of the Enterprise asks if anyone objects the violation of their orders ]
Data: To hell with our orders.
[Lily empties an entire clip of bullets into Data after he jumps down the silo and lands in front of her.]
Data: Greetings.
[After going in the wake of the Borg Sphere's time-travel gate, the Enterprise crew sees a radically different Earth]
Data: Earth, population nine billion...All Borg.

I don't wanna be a statue!

William Riker: We finished our first sensor sweep of the Neutral Zone.
Jean-Luc Picard: Oh, fascinating. 20 particles of space dust per cubic meter, 52 ultraviolet radiation spikes, and a Class II comet. (sarcastically) Well, this is certainly worthy of our attention.

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.
