Picard in interrogation room "'With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably.' Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie as wisdom and warning. The first time any man's freedom is trodden on, we're all damaged."
Jean-Luc Picard, (TNG: "The Drumhead")
Ezri Dax, 2375 "I think that the situation with Gowron is a symptom of a bigger problem. The Klingon Empire is dying, and I think it deserves to die."
- Ezri to Worf, (DS9: "Tacking Into the Wind")
Obrien and Bashir drunk "You're not an in-between kind of guy. People either love you or hate you."

"I mean, I hated you when I first met you."
..."And now?"
"Well... Now, I don't."
"That means a lot to me, chief."
"And that is from the heart! I really do... not hate you."

- Miles O'Brien and Julian Bashir, (DS9: "Explorers")
- James T. Kirk, (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)
Q and Picard, 2370 "For that one fraction of a second, you were open to options you had never considered. That is the exploration that awaits you. Not mapping stars and studying nebulae... but charting the unknown possibilities... of existence."

"Q, what is it you're trying to tell me?"
"You'll find out. In any case, I'll be watching... and if you're very lucky, I'll drop by to say hello... from time to time. See you, out there."

- Q and Picard (TNG: "All Good Things...")
Mutants (starfleet uniforms) "That's a stupid question!"
- "Admiral" Patrick (DS9: "Chrysalis")
Dancing with the devil "That's why you came to me, isn't it Captain? Because you knew I could do those things that you weren't capable of doing. Well, it worked. And you'll get what you wanted: a war between the Romulans and the Dominion. And if your conscience is bothering you, you should soothe it with the knowledge that you may have just saved the entire Alpha Quadrant, and all it cost was the life of one Romulan senator, one criminal... and the self-respect of one Starfleet officer. I don't know about you, but I'd call that a bargain."
- Garak to Benjamin Sisko (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")
Worf, 2375 "Do not hug me."
- Worf (DS9: "Let He Who Is Without Sin...")
"Did you hear? Keiko's gonna have another baby."


- Quark and Worf

"Well, I'll be sure and call you when she's ready to deliver; you can lend a hand."
"Seven months? Unfortunately, I will be away from the station at that time... Far away... Visiting my parents... On Earth. Excuse me."

- Bashir and Worf (DS9: "Accession")
Cloak (novel) "I'm convinced that what Starfleet stands for is good and true, and I think Section 31, whatever it is, exactly, is only a very small part - like a tumor, a cancer. Something that doesn't reflect any of the virtues and beliefs that Starfleet is about. But if each of you - each of us- is willing to question that one order that doesn't feel right, if we are willing to accept the responsibility of keeping our faith, by no longer taking it for granted - if we're willing to do that, then the cancer won't be able to spread."
- Kirk (Star Trek: Section 31: Cloak)
"They threw me a few curves."
- Kirk to Spock and McCoy, concerning the the reason for his absence (TOS: "Bread and Circuses")
"Come on, Quark, move it along. You should be in the emergency shelter by now."

"I'm not going to any emergency shelter. This is my bar. And I'm going to defend it."
"Really? And how do you plan to do that?"
"With this."
"You're going to hit them with a box?"
"No, this is my disruptor pistol. The one I used to carry in the old days, when I was serving on that Ferengi freighter."
"I thought you were the ship's cook."
"That's right, and every member of that crew thought he was a food critic. If the Klingons try to get through these doors, I'll be ready for them."
(reads note in the empty box) " 'Dear Quark, Used parts from your disruptor to fix the replicators. Will return them soon. Rom.' "
"I will kill him!"
"With what?"

- Quark and Odo, (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior")
Bareil Antos, 2371 "The Prophets teach us patience."

"It appears they also teach you politics."

- Bareil and Sisko , (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets")
Trip and Reed in Shuttlepod 1 "Is that modulated enough for you?"

"The radio! Or is it just the galaxy giggling at us again?"
"It can giggle all it wants, but the galaxy's not getting any of our bourbon!"

- Reed and Tucker, (ENT: "Shuttlepod One")
Qo'noS surface, Unexpected "I can see my house from here!"
- Vorok, (ENT: "Unexpected")

"With any luck, we won't be needing it."
"I didn't think Vulcans believed in luck."
"As a rule, we don't, but serving with Captain Janeway has taught me otherwise."
"She does tend to succeed more than random chance would allow. I'll factor it into my calculations."

- Tuvok and Seven of Nine, (VOY: "Juggernaut")
"May I inquire as to the nature of our diplomatic mission?"

"Allow me to be diplomatic and ask that you do not. In times of crisis, ignorance can be beneficial."

- V'Latak and Sarek (DIS: "Lethe")

On Tom Paris Edit

"Mr. Paris, I assume you've had a great deal of experience being rejected by women."
"Thanks a lot, Doc."

- The Doctor and Tom Paris, ("Lifesigns")

"Did I program Mister Paris to be so annoying?"
"Actually, I programmed him. I modeled him after my cousin Frank."
"Computer, delete Paris."

- The Doctor and Barclay, ("Projections")

"During my three years on Voyager, I have grown to respect a great many of you. Others [sideways glance to Paris and Kim] I have learned to tolerate."

- Tuvok ("Revulsion")

"I mean, you used to be quite the lady's man."
"Used to be?"

- Neelix and Tom Paris, ("Random Thoughts")

"Who would've thought that this eclectic group of voyagers could actually become a family? Starfleet; Maquis; Klingon; Talaxian; hologram; Borg; even Mr. Paris."

- The Doctor, ("Year of Hell")

"Inconsistencies? I don't know where to begin. Granted, this looks like the briefing room, but these aren't the people I knew! No one behaved like this... well, aside from Mr. Paris."

- The Doctor regarding the Kyrian simulation, ("Living Witness")

"Aside from his ability to breathe the rarified air on this planet, he's the exact duplicate of Mister Paris. He even seems to share his memories, not to mention his winning personality."

- The Doctor, ("Demon")

"I give up."
"After only two minutes? Tuvok, how do you do it?"
"I wait until his own illogic overwhelms him."

- Tom Paris, Chakotay, and Tuvok, after Paris loses an argument, ("The Disease")

"Ensign Paris whiled away a good portion of his academy years here. No doubt to the detriment of his scholastic performance."

- The Doctor describing to Seven of Nine the Chez Sandrine holographic setting, ("Someone to Watch Over Me")

"I'm not sure how I feel about getting inside Tom's head."
"Maybe you'll be able to explain a few things when you get back."

- B'Elanna Torres and The Doctor, ("Alice")

Production Edit

Datas speech taucygnav "I wanted to take Data one step further in his development as a Human being. I wanted to stress him and have him face a situation where logic isn't enough, to show that in order to command you have to have charisma. You have to learn how to wave your dick and hope your dick is bigger than the other guy's."
- Melinda Snodgrass (Captains' Logs: The Unauthorized Complete Trek Voyages, p. 186)
Shelby "The day he visited the set I had to say, 'Separate the saucer section, assign a skeleton crew,' and I asked him, 'Can you lay off the alliteration a little, Michael... please.'"
- Elizabeth Dennehy
Noonian Soong, 2367 "It was difficult because I had to hear dialogue that I hadn't read yet coming out of somebody else's mouth before I would get to it."
- Brent Spiner
Worf and Riker experience nIb'poH "I came up with the poker game while I was eating pancakes and pouring syrup. I had no idea how it happened – because it was before the sugar rush."
- Brannon Braga
Maura "At one point, we finally said 'Why not the dog'?"
- Ronald D. Moore
Anaphasic lifeform "I can't believe we're doing this."
- Rick Berman

On Star Trek Edit

"Strange things happen to the Enterprise-D... strange things happen to the Enterprise-D... strange things happen to the Enterprise-D... it turns out that Frasier is to blame."

- DITL, on TNG: "Cause and Effect" [1]

"Meanwhile, Ardra also lays claim to the Enterprise, since it's in orbit. This is clearly overreaching, because if there's one thing you don't screw with, it's the USS Enterprise."

- Jammer's Reviews, review of TNG: "Devil's Due" [2]

"It's hard to disagree with the message there. No matter the time, circumstances, race or planet, all people can be united by one idea: the USA is awesome. To think it took a Canadian to remind us of that. Thank you, Mr. Shatner. Thank you."

Cracked, on "The Omega Glory" [3]
