Quote
"Check the circuit." - Spock to helmsman; the first words ever spoken on Star Trek
"Sometimes a man'll tell his bartender things he'll never tell his doctor." - Boyce to Pike
"A man either lives life as it happens to him, meets it head-on, and licks it, or he turns his back on it and starts to wither away." - Boyce to Pike
"I'm tired of being responsible for 203 lives, and I'm tired of deciding which mission is too risky and which isn't, and who's going on the landing party and who doesn't... and who lives, and who dies." - Pike to Boyce
"Engage." - Pike to Number one; the first time the word was ever used in Trek
"It was a perfect illusion. They had us seeing just what we wanted to see, human beings who'd survived with dignity and bravery, everything entirely logical, right down to the building of the camp, the tattered clothing, everything. Now let's be sure we understand the danger of this. The inhabitants of this planet can read our minds. They can create illusions out of a person's own thoughts, memories, and experiences, even out of a person's own desires. Illusions just as real and solid as this table top and just as impossible to ignore!" - Boyce to the crew
"They couldn't repair the machines left by their ancestors. Is that why they want us, to build a colony of slaves?" - Pike to Vina
"A curious species. They have fantasies they hide even from themselves." - Talosian; describing Humans
"I'll break out of this zoo somehow and get to you. Is your blood red like ours? I'm gonna find out!" - Pike to the Talosian
"I'm going to gamble you're too intelligent to kill for no reason at all. On the other hand, I've got a reason. I'm willing to bet you've created an illusion this laser is empty. I think it just blasted a hole in that window and you're keeping us from seeing it. [Pike places the laser against the Talosian's skull.] You want me to test my theory out on your head?" - Pike to Talosian
"It's wrong to create a whole race of humans to live as slaves." - Number One to Pike; setting her laser to self destruct to to kill everybody present
"We had not believed this possible. The customs and history of your race show a unique hatred for captivity. Even when it is pleasant and benevolent, you prefer death!" - Talosian to Pike
