Captain James T. Kirk
Captain Jean-Luc Picard
Dr. Tolian Soran
Others


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.


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!

[Data finds a drink unpleasant - for the first time ever due to his newly implanted emotional chip.]
Data: I believe this beverage has produced an emotional response.
La Forge: Really? What do you feel?
Data: I'm uncertain... (while he grimaces) because I have little experiencie with emotions I'm not able to... articulate the sensation.
Guinan: (astounded) Emotions?
La Forge: I'll explain you later.
[Data continues to drink and continues to grimace]
Guinan: Looks like he hates it.
Data: That is it. That is it! I hate this!
La Forge: Looks like the chip is working.
[Data takes another drink and ****s his head to the side while grimacing]
Data: Ooooh, I hate this! It is revolting! (Data finishes his glass of beverage)
Guinan: More?
Data: Please!

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!

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

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.

(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.

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: 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: 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.

William Riker: I'm going to miss this ship. She went before her time.
Jean-Luc Picard: Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives, but I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment because they'll never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived. After all, Number One, we're only mortal.
William Riker: Speak for yourself, sir. I plan to live forever.

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]

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

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

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.
