My wife, our two kids, and I have all used "experiencing a warp core breach" as a euphemism for a sudden urgent need to use the restroom for as long as she and I have been married. Does anyone else use this phrase this way?
Oh yeah, when there's an audience who can get it.

Does anyone else have any other Trek euphemisms they use on a regular basis?
Well, while really references and generally not euphemisms, Spock quotes such as "illogical" and "fascinating" can make good zingers. I've also gotten a little mileage out of "We reach."
