Self-Destruct Question
 
What scene in which the self-destruct sequence is initiated do you find the most exciting?

Star Trek III. It works. They don't cancel it. And the reset button is not pushed.

Trek III is in my mind the best use of the self-destruct in all Trek. The scene is just so well done, starting with Kirk and the others arming it, and ending with the Klingons on the bridge listening to the countdown and Kruge yelling at them to get out.

Setting the self destruct should harder than what TNG and VOY depicted. TOS did it right in Last Battlefield and TSFS.

Well TNG it required Riker or two other senior officers when Picard activated it. Janeway could just turn the thing on/off at will by herself.

In the cinema for STIII... I'd read the book, so I knew what was coming. But as the countdown hit six or so, you could hear the intakes of breath, and the stifled mutters of 'No, they can't...' as it sank home that it wasn't going to be cancelled.

First Contact was nice too.

Until Data demonstrated he apparently has the ability to override it by himself. :p

It makes sense. Janeway is a psycho.

I quite like "Deadlock". Its one way to take out several hundred Vidiians!

I loved it when the computer said:

"Self Destruct is offline" :lol:

^Seriously, just turn off the magnetic containment fields.

Or if push comes to shove, fire a phaser into the warp core.

Or turn off the antimatter containment field.

Phase pistol is enough or you need a BFG?
