What are your favourite ST movie quotes? Here are some of mine!

From ST II: Wrath of Khan

Adm. Kirk: "Of my friend I can only say this...of all the souls that I have encountered in my travels, his was the most...human."

Adm. Kirk: "I'm laughing at your superior intellect, Khan!"

Capt. Spock: "It has always been easier to destroy that to create"
Dr. McCoy: "Not anymore! Now we can do both at the same time. According to myth, the Earth was created in six days. Now watch out! Here comes Genesis, we'll do it for ya in six minutes."

Dr. McCoy: "Where are we going?"
Adm. Kirk: "Where they went."
Dr. McCoy: "What if they went nowhere?"
Adm. Kirk: "Then this will be your big chance to get away from it all."

Capt. Spock, dying of radiation sickness in the warp core: "I have been, and ever shall be, your friend. Live long, and prosper."

From ST III: Search for Spock

Adm. Kirk, making the Vulcan hand greeting, after McCoy has been plagued by Spock's katra, "How many fingers am I holding up?"
Dr. McCoy, in a prison cell, "That's not very damn funny."

Adm. Kirk: "You're suffering from a Vulcan Mind Meld, Doctor."
Dr. McCoy: "That green-blooded Son of a B!#&#. It's his revenge for all those arguments he lost to me."

Adm. Kirk, While kicking Commander Kruge off the ledge on Genesis, "I... (kick) have had ENOUGH... (kick) of YOU!"

From ST IV: The Voyage Home

Dr. Gillian Taylor, marine biologist: "Let me guess, you're going to tell me you're from outer space or something."
Adm. Kirk, drinking a beer and smiling, "No, I'm from Iowa. I only work in outer space."

From ST V: Final Frontier

Capt. Kirk: "Excuse me, but what does God need with a Starship?"
Dr. McCoy: "Jim, you don't go around asking the Almighty for his I.D.!"

Capt. Spock: "I was attempting to ascertain the meaning of the lyrics."
Dr. McCoy: "It's a song, you green-blooded...Vulcan. You don't analyse it. The point is you have a good time singing it."
Capt. Spock: "Oh, I am sorry, Doctor. Were we having a good time?" after trying to sing "Row Row Row Your Boat"

From ST: VI: Undiscovered Country

General Chang: "To be... or not to be... that is the question which troubles my people. We need breathing room!"
Capt. Kirk: "Earth. Hitler. 1938"

General Chang over the Enterprise intercom: "I am constant as the Northern Star."
Dr. McCoy to Capt. Spock, while configuring a photon torpedo, "I'd give real money if he'd shut up."

General Chang over dinner: "Tak bak. Tak bak net! You can't appreciate Shakespeare until you've read him in the original Klingon."

What are your favourites? :)

single best star trek movie line:

and the whole spock dying conversation (ooops....spoiler alert? hehe) at the end of WoK...ship out of danger and all that.

ST3 Search for good writing, i mean...Search for Spock. When McCoy is trying to hire a ship to take him to Genesis....Yes Genesis!! With ears that large how can you be hard of hearing!!! or something along those lines.

also from 3, when Kirk is breaking out McCoy.. I hear he's fruitier than a nutcake.

Adm. Kirk, While kicking Commander Kruge off the ledge on Genesis, "I AM SICK...AND TIRED....OF YOU!"
That would actuallly be...

"I... (kick) have had ENOUGH... (kick) of YOU!"

Which is my favorite as well.

my fave movie quote would have to be from First Contact

Picard: they invade our space and we fall back, they assimilate entire worlds and we fall back, well not again! the line must be drawn here, this far, no further, and i will make them pay for what they have done

picard at his best.

Star Trek: First Contact

Worf, "Report!"
Helmsman, "We've lost shields! Main power's down, and our weapons are gone!"
Worf, "Perhaps today is a good day to die! Prepare for ramming speed!"
Helmsman, "Sir, another starship's coming in... it's the Enterprise!"
Worf, " :eek: "

*Enterprise comes to the rescue* :D

Star Trek First Contact

Picard is talking to the woman they brought on board from 2064 to have her injuries treated (Zefram Cochran's assistant)

PICARD...."They have'nt broken our encryption codes yet"


PICARD...."The Borg!"

WOMAN...."You mean those Bionic Zombies you told me about?"

PICARD...."Yes!, the Borg"

WOMAN...."Sound's Swedish" ....LOLOL....

Then later when the woman finally gets a look at a Borg she dead pans to the camera and say's "definetly not Swedish" :D

khan "i will lerave u as u left me, at the centre of a dead planet, buried alive, buried alive"

shapeshifty woman "not all species have their genitles in the same place captain"

Anything commander chang quotes while his cloaked bird-of-pray if firing on the enterprise in undiscovered country

April 28th, 2005, 03:51 AM
I was always particularly fond of the 'No I'm from Iowa' quote, too.

From 'Insurrection' - in response to Data noticing that his pet beard has escaped:
Riker: Smooth as an Android's bottom, Data!

Not to mention the moment in 'Generations' when Data says a very naughty word as the Enterprise is about to crash-land. No I'm not going to quote it...

From 'Final Frontier':
Scotty: I know this ship like the back of my hand. *BONK!*

From 'Search for Spock':
Scotty: I have replaced all the Klingon food packs, they were giving me a sour stomach!

Kirk (aside, recalling McCoy's earlier comment about the Bird of Prey interior being somewhat malodorous): So that's what it was.

Of course, I also have to join the crowds supporting 'KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!!!'

April 28th, 2005, 09:52 AM
The would actuallly be...

"I... (kick) have had ENOUGH... (kick) of YOU!"

Which is my favorite as well.
Thanks for the advice. I fixed the quote.

April 28th, 2005, 09:59 AM
From 'Search for Spock':
Scotty: I have replaced all the Klingon food packs, they were giving me a sour stomach!

Actually, I think this one was from The Voyage Home.

Somebody, please correct me if I'm wrong.

April 28th, 2005, 10:01 AM
How about Data saying "Have you noticed how your boobs have started to firm up?". :D

April 28th, 2005, 10:46 AM
Actually, I think this one was from The Voyage Home.

Somebody, please correct me if I'm wrong.
I believe you're correct.

April 28th, 2005, 02:36 PM
From ST: First Contact (VIII):

Lily Sloane: Jean Luc, blow up the damn ship!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: No! Noooooooooo!
[Smashes glass and model ships with his phaser]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I will not sacrifice the Enterprise. Weve made too many compromises already; too many retreats. They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done.

May 3rd, 2005, 03:22 AM
I believe you're correct.

You are indeed. :o

So many to choose from...

Star Trek III

The Enterprise limps into spacedock, passing Starfleet's wonder ship the U.S.S. Excelsior as it does so.
Sulu (casually): "She's supposed to have Transwarp drive..."
Scotty (unimpressed): "Aye - an' if my grandmother had wheels, she'd be a wagon..."

Star Trek V

As Kirk climbs El Capitan, Spock appears, hovering nearby on his jet boots.
Spock: "Captain - I do not think you realise the gravity of your situation..."

ARE YOU KIDDING? :D There are way to many to list!!! :D
These are not movie quotes :p

"Trapped on a barren planet and your stuck with the only indian in the universe who can't start a fire by rubbing two sticks together!" Chakotay, Voyager.

"Vulcan mind-melds, utter foolishness....anyone with an ounce of sense would'nt share their brain with anyone else....would you? i know i certainly would'nt." The holo doctor to janeway in meld.

As for my favourite film GENERATIONS AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH can never think of a quote when i want to, why is that? :(

May 4th, 2005, 05:54 AM
There are so many great quotes! A couple that I don't think have been mentioned:

Star Trek III
Scotty: The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.

Star Trek IV
Kirk: Everybody remember where we parked.

And, of course: KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!

Star Trek III

As the Enterprise approaches the Spacedock doors.

Kirk "And now Mr. Scott."
Scotty "Sir?"
Kirk "The doors Mr. Scott."
Scotty "Aye sir I'm Working on it"

Sulu "Don't call me tiny!"

Computer "Level Please."
Scotty "Transporter Room."
Computer "Thank You."
Scotty "Up your shaft."

Star Trek VI

Sulu "In Range?"
Helmsman "Not yet sir."
Sulu "Come on, come on!"
Helmsman "She'll fly apart."
Sulu "Fly her apart then!"


Scotty "Captain, is there something wrong with your chair?"

Scotty "There's just no way to disrupt a gravmetric field of this magnetutde. But I do have a theory."
Kirk "I thought you might."

Kirk "Load torpedo bays, prepare to fire at my command."
Demora Sulu "Captain, we dont have any Torpedoes."
Kirk :looks at Captain Harriman: "Don't tell me Tuesday."

Wandering Tamer

I always like the one where Riker looks at La Forge in First Contact and says "You told him about the statue?" And all Geordi can do is shrug.

First Contact had some of the best.

IV had "Gracie is Pregnant."

Kirk: "Valeris, do you know anything about a radiation surge?"
Valeris: "Sir?"
Kirk: "Mister Chekov?"
Chekov: "Only the size of my head."
Kirk: "I know what you mean."

May 6th, 2005, 11:04 PM
Star Trek III:

Sulu: Don't call me Tiny.

Young officer: What are we gonna do about it?
Uhura: I'm not going to do anything, Lt. And You're going to sit in the closet.

Star Trek IV:

Scotty: Damage control is easy - reading Klingon, THAT'S hard!

McCoy: Angels and ministers of grace defend us!
Spock: Hamlet, Act I, Scene V.

McCoy: This is me, Spock! You really have gone where no man has gone before. Can't you tell me how it felt?
Spock: It would be impossible to discuss it without a proper frame of reference.
McCoy: You mean I have to die to discuss your insights on death?
Spock: Forgive me, Doctor, I am receiving a number of distress calls.
McCoy: I'll bet.

Scotty: Computer - Hello, computer.
Scientist: Just use the keyboard.
Scotty: The keyboard. How quaint.

Interrogator: Name.
Chekov: My name?
Interrogator: No, my name!
Chekov: I do not know your name!
Interrogator: You play games with me, mister, and you're through!
Chekov: I am? May I go now?

McCoy: Damnit, man, do you want an acute case on your hands? This woman has immediate post-prandal upper abdominal distension!
Kirk: What'd you say she's got?
McCoy: Cramps.

Old lady: The doctor gave me a pill and I grew a new kidney, the doctor gave me a pill and I grew a new kidney!

Kirk: Name! Rank!
Chekov: Chekov, Pavel. Rank: Admiral!


Spock: Logic, logic, and logic. Logic... is the beginning of wisdom, Valeris, not the end.

Spock: Is it possible that we two, you and I, have grown so old, so inflexible, that we have outlived our usefulness?

Kirk: Spock, you wanna know something? Deep down, everybody's human.
Spock: I find that remark... insulting.

Kirk: I was lucky that thing had knees!
Martia: That was not his knee. Not everybody keeps their genitals in the same place, Captain.
Kirk: Bones, why don't you see what you can do for him - let him know we're not holding a grudge?
McCoy: Suppose HE'S holding a grudge?

Kirk: Bones - are you afraid of the future?
McCoy: I believe that was the general idea I was trying to convey.
Kirk: I don't mean this future.
McCoy: What is this, multiple choice?

Valeris: You are crewman Dax?
Dax: Yes. What is this about?
Chekov: Perhaps you have heard Russian epic of Cinderella. If shoe fits - wear it!
Spock: Mr. Chekov (points to Dax's webbed feet which couldn't possibly fit in the gravity boot)

Spock: Mr. Scott, I understand you're having problems with the warp drive. How long do you require for repairs?
Scotty: There's nothin' wrong with the bloody thing!
Spock: Mr. Scott, if we return to Spacedock, the assasins will undoubtedly find a way to dispose of their incriminating footwear and we will never see Captain Kirk or Doctor McCoy again.
Scotty: Could take weeks, Sir!


Chang: Come now, Captain, you do prefer it this way, don't you? No peace in our time. Once more unto the breach, dear friends.

Uhura: Well, what about all that equipment we're carrying for cataloguing gaseous anomolies? The thing's gotta have a tailpipe...
Spock: Doctor, would you care to assist me in performing surgery on a torpedo?
McCoy: Fascinating.

Sulu: Target that explosion and fire!
Kirk: Fire!
Chang: To be... or not... to be -

Scotty: That Klingon ***** killed her father! Mark my words, she did not shed one bloody tear!
Spock: Hardly conclusive, Mr. Scott, since Klingons have no tears ducts.

Spock: An ancestor of mine maintained that if you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

Chancellor: What is the meaning of this?!
Kirk: It's about the future, Madame Chancellor. Some people think the future means the end of history. Well - we haven't run out of history quite yet.

President: And suppose you precipitate a full scale war?
Col. West: Then, quite frankly, Mr. President, we can clean their chronometers.

Sulu: Good to see you in action one more time, Sir. Excelsior out.
Uhura: There goes a big ship.
Scotty: Not so big as her captain, I think.

Uhura: Sir, receiving orders to return to spacedock - to be decomissioned.
Spock: If I were human, I believe my response would be: "Go to hell." If I were human.
Chekov: Course heading, Captain?
Kirk: Second star to the right - and straight on till morning!


Data: I just love scanning for lifeforms! Lifeforms! You tiny little lifeforms! You lovely little lifeforms! Where are you?


Worf: Assimilate this!

Troi: This is no time to argue about time we don't have the time!

Riker: Someone once said: "Don't try to be a great man, just be a man - and let history make its own judgements."
Cochrane: What moron said that?
Riker: You did, twenty years from now.

Crusher: Twenty Borg are about to come through that door, hold them off while we escape!
EMH: What am I supposed to do? I'm a doctor, not a doorstop!
Crusher: Sing a song, do a dance, I don't care, just give us time!
(Borg come through)
EMH: According to Starfleet Medical records, Borg implants can cause severe skin irritation. Perhaps you'd like... an analgesic cream?

Data: For a time, I was tempted by her offer.
Picard: How long a time?
Data: 0.68 seconds. For an android, that is an eternity.

May 8th, 2005, 06:05 AM
Spock: An ancestor of mine maintained that if you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
I'd always wondered about this line.

There are three possibilities as to who Spock's "ancestor" was: A) Sherlock Holmes.
B) Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle - creator of Sherlock Holmes.
C) Dr. Joseph Bell. One of Conan-Doyle's medical tutors, and said to be the original inspiration for the Holmes character.

However, given that Spock's mother's maiden name was Grayson - could he also have ancestors who were circus acrobats that performed under the name of "The Flying Graysons"? ;)

From V -

Spock - I assue you doctor I'm well versed in all the classics
McCoy - Then how come you don't know row ya boat

May 9th, 2005, 05:12 AM
And lest we forget, from Star trek VI.

McCoy (to Kirk, after the good captain's spot of tongue wrestling with Marta): "What is it with you anyway?"

May 9th, 2005, 05:52 AM
I love The Voyage Home. A couple of my favorites:

Dr. Gillian Taylor: Do you guys like Italian?
Kirk: Yes.
Spock: No.
Kirk: Yes.
Spock: No.
Kirk: I love Italian,
*Kirk looks at Spock*
Kirk: And so do you.
Spock: Yes.

Security Guard: How's the patient, doctor?
Kirk: He's gonna make it.
Security Guard: He? You came in with a she.
Kirk: One little mistake...

May 9th, 2005, 06:26 AM
Again from Star Trek V.

Sulu (admiring Klingon warrior woman Vixis): "She has wonderful muscles..."

I always expected him to come back with a black eye, his arm in a sling, missing one or two teeth, but with a happy smile on his face. :D

May 9th, 2005, 08:20 PM
I forgot one of my favorites from VI:

Uhura: "Captain, I've just recevied orders from Starfleet Command. We're to put back to Spacedock immediately....to be decomissioned."

Spock: " If I were human, I believe my responce would be go to hell! IF I were human."

May 10th, 2005, 06:22 AM
Star Trek: First Contact.

Cochrane: "You're all astronauts, on some kind of - star - trek..." :D
