From Balance of Terror:

"We're standing by to beam your survivors aboard our ship. Prepare to abandon your vessel."
"No - no, that is not our way. I regret that we meet in this way. You and I are of a kind. In a different reality, I could have called you friend."
"What purpose will it serve to die?"
"We are creatures of duty, captain. I have lived my life by it. Just... one more duty... to perform."

-Kirk and the Romulan Commander

"It never makes any sense. We both have to know that there was a reason."

- Kirk to Angela Martine

I have two one from a book that I wish made it to the screen and one from first contact

The book Q in Law

Lwaxanna: Do you think I'm Old?
Data: "Yes" Everyone looked at Data and he continued blissfully unaware "In the terms of the average Betaziod life span you are..."
Picard: Exhausted!

paraphrased a bit since I don't hav ethe book with me to quote from.


Riker "Tough little ship"
Worf all but sneers: "little?"

"Risk is our business. That's what this starship is all about. That's why we're aboard her."


I like that one because it sets the tone for much of the behavior we see out of starfleet captains.

Going back to what are acknowledged as a couple of the best episodes, as well as on the list of favorite of most Trekfen:

"Let's get the hell out of here"

"What do you know? I fnally got the last word!"

And from one of the movies:

"The more they over think the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain."
