Twenty Borg are about to break through that door. We need time to get out of here. Create a diversion!

In the presence of the Kzinti, do not say anything. Do not do anything startling. Try to look harmless.

"We mean you no harm. Do you understand me?"
"Understand you?! You're nothing to him! He's just a scout, first of many. He's here to analyze your technology. He might try to gain control of the ship. I wouldn't let him."

"Would you like something easier?"
"'Easier?'"
"Yes. If Klingon food is too strong for you, perhaps we could get one of the females to... breast-feed you."

QUARK: She spent about an hour talking about her family history. A rather long and bloody tale, but what else is new? Then we ate the lingta, which tasted really bad, listened to some noise which she called Klingon music, and I left.
WORF: A perfect evening.

Sisko: "You have sharp eyes."
Eddington: "Not really. I just waited to see which one of you was knocked down first, and then I shot the one still standing."

Resistance is futile. You will disarm all your weapons, and escort us to Sector 001. If you attempt to intervene... we will destroy you.

Incorrect stragegy. Risking your ship and it's crew for one man. Picard would never have approved.

Well, there's definitely room for improvement, but believe me, Data, [humans] are a minor species in the grand scheme, not worth your envy.

You have to be either an obsessive crackpot who's escaped from his keeper, or Samuel T. Cogley, Attorney at Law.

Picard: "The first duty of every Starfleet officer is to the truth, whether it's scientific truth or historical truth or personal truth! It is the guiding principle on which Starfleet is based. And if you can't find it within yourself to stand up and tell the truth about what happened, you don't deserve to wear that uniform! I'm going to make this simple for you, Mr. Crusher: either you come forward and tell Admiral Brand what really took place, or I will."
Cadet Crusher: "Captain...."
Picard: "Dismissed!"

Mr. Worf, I hereby promote you to the rank of lieutenant commander, with all the rights and privileges thereto. And may God have mercy on your soul.

(A very appropriate quote considering some of the stuff that happens to him on Deep Space Nine.)

McCoy: [mechanically] You offer us only well-being.

Scott: [mechanically] Food and drink and happiness mean nothing to us.

McCoy: We must be about our job.

Scott: Suffering in torment and pain, laboring without end.

McCoy: Dying and crying and lamenting over our burdens.

McCoy, Scott: [together] Only this way can we... be... happy.

[They curtsey sweetly]

Take care, young maidens, and value your wine.
Be watchful of young men in their velvet prime.
Deeply they'll swallow from your finest kegs,
Then swiftly be gone, leaving bitter dregs.
Ahhhh... bitter dregs.

Since the days of the first wooden vessels, all ship masters have had one happy privilege: that of uniting two people in the bonds of matrimony.

"…Ten seconds to auto-destruct…"
"Captain…"
"Abort auto-destruct sequence."
"Riker, William T., do you concur?"
"Yes! Absolutely! I do indeed concur whole-heartedly!"
"Auto-destruct canceled."
"A simple 'yes' would have sufficed, Number One."
"I didn't want there to be any chance of a misunderstanding."
