Kirk : "My name is Captain James Tiberius Kirk of the United Federation of Planets. I'm appearing before you as a neutral representative of the Fibonan Republic. I bring you a message of goodwill and present to you, esteemed members of the Teenaxi delegation, a gift from the Fibonan high council, with the highest regards."
Teenaxi Delegate : "What's wrong with it?"
Kirk : "...excuse me?"
Teenaxi Delegate : "Well, why don't they want it anymore?"
Kirk : "Um, well, this was once a piece of an ancient weapon. And now they offer it as a symbol of... of peace. In the Fibonan culture to surrender a weapon is an offer of truce."
Teenaxi Delegate : "How did they come by it?"
Kirk : "They told me they acquired it a long time ago."
Teenaxi Delegate : "So they stole it then!"
Kirk : "No. Ummm..."
Kirk : "My dad joined Starfleet because he believed in it. I joined on a dare."
McCoy : "You joined to see if you could live up to him. You've spent all this time trying to be your dad. Now you're wondering... what it means to be you."
Spock : "Ambassador Spock has died."
McCoy : "Oh Spock, I'm sorry. I can't imagine what that must feel like."
Spock : "When you have lived as many lives as he, fear of death is illogical."
McCoy : "Is that classical music?"
Spock : "I believe so."
(discussing the Beastie Boys 'Sabotage')
Uhura : "Our Captain will come for us. And mercy will be the last thing on his mind."
Krall : "I am counting on it!"
Kirk : "How are we gonna get out of this one, Spock. We got no ship, no crew. Not the best odds."
Spock : "We will do what we always done Jim, we will find hope in the impossible."
Spock : "Lieutenant Uhura wears a Vulcaya amulet which I presented to her as a token of my affection and respect."
"McCoy : "You gave your girlfriend radioactive jewellery?"
Spock : "The emission is harmless Doctor, but its unique signature makes it very easy to identify."
McCoy : "You gave your girlfriend a tracking device?"
Spock : "...that was not my intention."
"McCoy : "Well I'm glad he doesn't respect me!"
[Spock stumbles on a pair of Krall's drones, only for Uhura to beat them up and save him]
Uhura : "Spock! What are you doing here?"
Spock : "Clearly, I am here to rescue you."
Kirk : "Mister Sulu... you can, you know, fly this thing. Right?"
Sulu : "Are you kidding me, sir?"
(on the USS Franklin)
Krall : "I read your ship's log, Captain James T Kirk. At least I know what I am! I am a soldier!"
Kirk : "You won the war, Edison! You gave us peace."
Krall : "Peace... is not what I was born into."
Paris : "You saved this entire base, Kirk. Millions of souls. Thank you."
Kirk : "It wasn't just me. It never is."
Kirk : "Vice Admirals don't fly, do they?"
Commodore Paris : "No. They don't."
Kirk : "No offence Ma'am, but... where's the fun in that?"
