Best Trek Quotes Thread

Hey,

Why don't we take turns posting some of the great lines from Star Trek's history ? Don't forget to mention which character and which movie or episode and series the quote is from.

I'll go first:

I've done far worse than kill you, Admiral. I've hurt you. And I wish to go on hurting you. I shall leave you as you left me, as you left her; marooned for all eternity in the center of a dead planet... buried alive! - Khan, TWOK

"Don't try to be a great man, just be a man. And let history make its own judgments"
Zefram Cochrane - Star Trek: First Contact (well, 10 years after first contact)

My favorite quote.

Always my favorite, from Bones: "In this galaxy, there's a mathematical probability of three million Earth-type planets. And in all of 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."

You beat me to it. This is my favorite line in all of Trek. As a gay teen contemplating suicide in the mid-1970s, it spoke to me as nothing else ever has.

How about some of Picard's sage advice.

"I would be delighted to offer any advice I can on understanding women. When I have some, I'll let you know."

or from DSN

I think that's wonderful - just shows how important Star Trek has been . . . still is I'd say.
I'm very glad you made it through and are still here.
