Quote : "There are certain things men must do to remain men." - Kirk to Daystrom

"Did you see the love light in Spock's eyes? The right computer finally came along!" - McCoy to Kirk

"Computers make excellent and efficient servants, but I have no wish to serve under them." - Spock to Kirk

Wesley : "Our compliments to the M-5 unit, and regards to Captain Dunsel. Wesley out."
McCoy : "Dunsel? Who the blazes is Captain Dunsel? What does it mean, Jim? Spock? What does it mean?"
Spock : "Dunsel, Doctor, is a term used by Midshipmen at Starfleet Academy. It refers to a part which serves no useful purpose."

"All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by. You could feel the wind at your back in those days. The sounds of the sea beneath you. And even if you take away the wind and the water, it's still the same. The ship is yours. You can feel her. And the stars are still there, Bones." - Kirk to McCoy on being a Captain.

Spock : "Most illogical. Of all people, he should have known how the computer would perform. Of course,
the M-5 itself has not behaved logically."
McCoy : "Please, Spock, do me a favour and don't say it's fascinating."
Spock : "No. But it is... interesting."

"I've developed a method of impressing human engrams upon the computer circuits. The relays are not unlike the synapse of the brain. M-5 thinks, Captain." - Daystrom to Kirk.

"All ships damaged in unprovoked attack. Excalibur Captain Harris and First Officer dead. Many casualties. We have damage, but are still able to manoeuvre. The Enterprise refuses to answer, and is continuing attack. I still have an effective battle force and believe the only way to stop the Enterprise is to destroy her. Request permission to proceed." - Wesley messaging Starfleet.

"You are my greatest creation, the unit to save men. You must not destroy men." _Daystrom to M-5.

"To kill is a breaking of civil and moral laws we've lived by for thousands of years. You've murdered hundreds of people. We've murdered. How can we repay that?" - Daystrom to M-5.

"I am most impressed with the technology, Captain. Doctor Daystrom has created a mirror image of his own mind." - Spock to Kirk.

"Destroyed, Kirk? No! We're invincible! Look what we've done! Your mighty starships - four toys, to be crushed as we choose!" - Daystrom to Kirk, cracking up under the strain.

"Compassion. That's the one thing no machine ever had. Maybe it's the one thing that keeps men ahead of them." - McCoy to Kirk

"It would be most interesting to impress your memory engrams on a computer, doctor. The resulting torrential flood of illogic would be most entertaining." - Spock to McCoy
