Re: Best line in star trek hstory

"In this galaxy there's a mathimatical probability of three million Earth type planets, and in all the universe three million million galaxies like this, and in all of that, and perhaps more, only one of each of us. Don't destroy the one named Kirk."
This is the phrase that probably saved my life. As a teenager I became suicidal, because of physical abuse and self-hatred for being gay. One afternoon, that episode of TOS came on... it made me pause... and realize that I really am special... and just maybe I'm worth living. So for me, IMHO, this is the "best line in Star Trek history" and always will be.

More recently, I also like nuMcCoy's background [Karl Urban had to be channeling Dee Kelley when he ad-libbed this line]:
Yeah. Well, I got nowhere else to go. The ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce. All I got left is my bones.
I love this line from McCoy, too:
Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence.
