Hikaru Sulu: My god. Shields. SHIELDS!


James T. Kirk: [recording] I've never trusted Klingons, and I never will. I've never been able to forgive them for the death of my boy.

James T. Kirk: [voiceover] Captain's Log, Stardate 9529.1. This is the final cruise of the Starship Enterprise under my command. This ship and her history will shortly become the care of another crew. To them and their posterity will we commit our future. They will continue the voyages we have begun and journey to all the undiscovered countries boldy going where no man, where no one...has gone before. [last lines]

James T. Kirk: Captain's Log, Stardate 9522.6. I've never trusted Klingons, and I never will. I can never forgive them for the death of my boy. It seems to me our mission to escort the Chancellor of the Klingon High Council to a peace summit is problematic at best. Spock says this could be an historic occasion and I'd like to believe him, but how on Earth can history get past people like me?

James T. Kirk: I'm a great one for rushing in where angels fear to tread. [Paraphrasing from Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism.]

James T. Kirk: The Enterprise hosted Chancellor Gorkon and company to dinner last night. Our manners weren't exactly Emily Post. Uh, note to the galley-Romulan ale no longer to be served at diplomatic functions.

James T. Kirk: They're animals.
Spock: Jim...there is an historic opportunity here.
James T. Kirk: Don't believe them. Don't trust them.
Spock: They are dying.
James T. Kirk: Let them die. Has it occurred to you that this crew is due to stand down in three months? We've done our bit for king and country. You should have trusted me.

Leonard McCoy: [to Spock] Bet you wish you'd stood in bed.

Martia: I thought I would assume a pleasing shape. [From Hamlet, Act II, Scene 2]

Pavel Chekov: Guess who's coming to dinner? [Reference to Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, a 1967 film.]

Spock: An ancestor of mine maintained that if you eliminate the impossible whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. [The fictional character Sherlock Holmes says this in the stories by Arthur Conan Doyle.]

Spock: Doctor, would you care to assist me in performing surgery on a torpedo?
Leonard McCoy: Fascinating.

Spock: Good morning. Two months ago, a Federation starship monitored an explosion on the Klingon moon, Praxis. We believed it was caused by overmining and insufficient safety precautions. The moon's decimation means a deadly pollution of their ozone. They will have depleted their supply of oxygen in approximately 50 Earth years. Due to their enormous military budget, the Klingon economy does not have the resources with which to combat this catastrophe. Last month, at the behest of the Vulcan ambassador, I opened a dialogue with Gorkon, Chancellor of the Klingon High Council. He proposes to commence negotiations at once.
Admiral Cartwright: Negotiations for what?
Spock: The dismantling of our space stations and starbases of along the Neutral Zone, an end to almost 70 years of unremitting hostility which the Klingons can no longer afford.

Spock: If I were human, I believe my response would be...Go to Hell. [Kirk looks at Spock] If I were human.
Pavel Chekov: Course heading, Captain?
James T. Kirk: Second star to the right... and straight on till morning. [Kirk is paraphrasing J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan.]

Spock: It is a depiction from ancient Earth mythology—the expulsion from Paradise.
Valeris: Why keep it in your quarters?
Spock: It is a reminder to me that all things end.
