Mr. Crusher, lay in a collision course with the Borg ship. You heard me; a collision course!

"Ambassador?" Worf got up and went after him. Spock had a reputation for many things, but wandering off in the middle of a conversation-- the middle of a sentence-- was not one of them. And Worf had spent far too much time serving in Starfleet to be anything but completely on his guard when witnessing such behavior.

True to the runner’s word, the center of the Prime Village was the sight of a great feast indeed. All those who lived in the village gathered around to pick from the carcass of the san-chera that had been brought down. Me-Larr noted with satisfaction that the hunters had done so with a minimum of damage—the beast died quickly and with no great loss of edible material. It was a fine hunt.

My friend Data. You see things with the wonder of a child, and that makes you more human than any of us.

"Are you afraid of cars?"

The word 'trust' just isn't in your vocabulary, is it? Nice try. Nine out of ten for effort.

"Mirror, Mirror"

Spock: "Indeed, gentlemen. May I point out that I had an opportunity to observe your counterparts here quite closely. They were brutal, savage, unprincipled, uncivilized, treacherous, In every way, splendid examples of homo sapiens, the very flower of humanity.

A blind man teaching an android how to paint? That's gotta be worth a couple of pages in somebody's book!

"We don't know what to do about Humans. Of all the species we've made contact with, yours is the only one we can't define. You have the arrogance of Andorians, the stubborn pride of Tellarites. One moment you're as driven by your emotions as Klingons, and the next you confound us by suddenly embracing logic!"
"I'm sure those qualities are found in every species."
"Not in such confusing abundance."
