Kirk : "Well sir volatile is all relative, maybe our data was off."

Pike : "You're going to be my first officer. Admiral Marcus took some convincing. But every now and then I can make a good case."

"Let me explain what's happening here. You are a criminal. I watched you murder innocent men and women. I was authorised to end you, and the only reason why you are still alive is because I am allowing it. So shut your mouth!" - Kirk to Khan
ST-ID : Star Trek Into Darkness
"You're right! What I'm about to do, it doesn't make any sense. It's not logical, it is a gut feeling. I have no idea what I'm supposed to do... I only know what I can do. The Enterprise and her crew need someone in that chair who knows what he's doing. And it's not me. It's you, Spock." - Kirk to Spock

  People :  James T. Kirk, Leonard McCoy
ST-ID : Star Trek Into Darkness
"There will always be those who mean to do us harm. To stop them, we risk awakening the same evil within ourselves. Our first instinct is to seek revenge when those we love are taken from us. But that's not who we are. We are here today to re-christen the USS Enterprise and to honour those who lost their lives nearly one year ago. When Christopher Pike first gave me his ship, he had me recite the Captain's Oath. Words I didn't appreciate at the time. Now I see them as a call for us to remember who we once were and who we must be again. And those words? Space... the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise, her five year mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilisations. To boldly go where no one has gone before." - Kirk
ST-ID : Star Trek Into Darkness
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."
  People :  James T. Kirk

ST-B : Star Trek Beyond
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..."
