Favorite Star Trek line

Only one line.
From all the versions, only one.
Not one from each series, not one from each episode, one.

Mine is from TOS, The City on the Edge of Forever:
“Let’s get the Hell out of here.”

“I’ve done worse than kill you, I’ve hurt you. And I wish to go on… hurting you…” and everything that follows.

Ooops, got that slightly wrong:

Of course, it’s all in the delivery.


“Ahh, Worf. Eat any good books lately?” – Q.

“Au contraire, mon Capitaine!” - Q

It’s the overdone accent he adds to that line that makes it particularly good.

There! Are! Four! Lights!

“Fly her apart then!”
-Captain Sulu, to his helmsman, on their way to Camp Kittomer at maximum warp, ST VI

“Never give up! Never surrender!”

“E plebneesta…”

Worf: Sir, I protest - I am NOT a merry man!!

Oh come on!

There is only one line that counts. One line that sums it all up! ONE LINE THAT WILL LIVE ON IN OUR HEARTS!..

Of course, I mean

He’s dead Jim

Work: “Bragging, Sir?”
He seemed so puzzled.




CMC fnord!

‘Brain and brain! What is brain?!’

When Bones tells Kirk that his vendetta against Kodos the Executioner won’t bring the dead back to life, Kirk replies,

“No. But they may rest easier.”

Oh come now. The best line hands down is Uhura’s, in response to being called a “fair maiden.”

“Sorry, neither.”

“To think, after all this time – all our lunches together – and you still don’t trust me. There’s hope for you yet, Doctor.”

The perfect summary of their relationship.
