Others


(to Enterprise-B helmswoman Demora Sulu) It wouldn't be the Enterprise without a Sulu at the helm. (to Picard in the Nexus) Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of [the Enterprise] because while you're there, you can make a difference. (last words) It was... fun. Oh, my.


B'Etor: [about Dr. Crusher, disgustedly] Human females are so repulsive.

Data: [sitting at the operations console, bracing for crash landing of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D] Oh, shit!

Geordi La Forge: Data, come take a look at this, will you? Have you ever seen a solar probe with this kind of configuration?
Data: [uses his tricorder as a hand puppet] No, Geordi, I have not. Have you? [to his tricorder] No, I have not. It is most unusual. [laughs] Mister Tricorder!

James T. Kirk': You left spacedock without a tractor beam?
John Harriman: It won't be installed until Tuesday.

James T. Kirk: Congratulations, Ensign. It wouldn't be the Enterprise without a Sulu at the helm.
Demora Sulu: Thank you, sir.
Pavel Chekov: I'm sure Hikaru must be very proud of you.
Demora Sulu: I hope so.
Pavel Chekov: [wistful] I was never that young.
James T. Kirk: [smiling] No... you were younger.

James T. Kirk: Did we do it? Did we make a difference?
Jean-Luc Picard: Oh, yes. We made a difference. Thank you.
James T. Kirk: The least I could do... for the captain of the Enterprise. It was... fun. Oh, my. [Kirk's last words]

James T. Kirk: Take us out.
Pavel Chekov: Very good, sir.
Montgomery Scott: Brought a tear to me eye.
James T. Kirk: Oh, be quiet.

James T. Kirk: Who am I to argue with the captain of the Enterprise? What's the name of that planet? Veridian III?
Jean-Luc Picard: Yes.
James T. Kirk: I take it the odds are against us and the situation is grim.
Jean-Luc Picard: You could say that.
James T. Kirk: You know, if Spock were here, he'd say that I was an irrational, illogical human being for taking on a mission like that. Sounds like fun.

James T. Kirk: You say history considers me dead. Who am I to argue with history?
Jean-Luc Picard: You're a Starfleet officer. You have a duty.
James T. Kirk: I don't need to be lectured by you. I was out saving the galaxy when your grandfather was in diapers. I'd say the galaxy owes me one.

Jean-Luc Picard: If there's one thing I've learned over the years, it's never underestimate a Klingon.
William Riker: Computer, remove the plank!
[Worf falls into the ocean]
Jean-Luc Picard: Number One, that's "retract plank," not "remove plank."
William Riker: Of course, sir. [leans over the side toward Worf] Sorry!

Jean-Luc Picard: What you're about to do, Soran, is no different from when the Borg destroyed your world. They killed millions, too, including your wife... your children.
Tolian Soran: [smiles] Nice try. You know there, was a time when I wouldn't hurt a fly. Then the Borg came, and they showed me that if there is one constant in this whole universe, it's death. Afterwards, I began to realize that it didn't really matter. We're all going to die sometime. It's just a question of how and when. You will, too, Captain. Aren't you beginning to fell time gaining on you? It's like a predator. It's stalking you. Oh, you can try and outrun it with doctor, medicines, new technologies, but in the end, time is going to hunt you down and make the kill.
Jean-Luc Picard: It's our mortality that defines us, Soran. It's part of the truth of our existence.
Tolian Soran: What if I told you I found a new truth?
Jean-Luc Picard: The nexus?
Tolian Soran: Time has no meaning there. The predator has no teeth.

John Harriman: Captain Kirk, I would appreciate any suggestions you might have.
James T. Kirk: First, move us within transporter range, beam those people aboard the Enterprise.
John Harriman: What about the gravimetric distortions? They'll tear us apart.
James T. Kirk: Risk is part of the game if you want to sit in that chair.
John Harriman: Helm, close to within transporter range.
James T. Kirk: Second, [to reporter] turn that damned thing off.

John Harriman: I remember reading about your missions when I was in grade school.
James T. Kirk: Oh, really?

Montgomery Scott: Finding retirement a little lonely, are we?
James T. Kirk: You know, I'm glad you're an engineer. With tact like that, you'd make a lousy psychiatrist.
