Re: The Single Worst Line of Dialogue in the entire Star Trek Franchis

I'm too lazy to read the whole thread to see if this has been mentioned, and I think it is from The Wounded. It is during the O'Briens' mealtime. The ship is hit by weapons, and O'Brien reacts by looking concerned, and noting 'something's wrong'.

Every time I see it, I want to shout 'well, duh!' at him.

"Well, what about all of that equipment we're carrying to catalogue gaseous anomalies?"

You mean all the equipment the Exelsior has, right?

No, for the purposes of the finale we have it all now.

That's just bad continuity or editing.

It's also an extremely clunky line of dialogue that's about as natural as chicken's teeth.

Hardly the worst. It's somewhat typical of the type of exposition one finds in Star Trek. And you specifically made mention of it's out of the blue appearance rather than its awkwardness. In the hands a better actor it might have sounded better.

^Seems to have been a legitimate question.

Re: The Single Worst Line of Dialogue in the entire Star Trek Franchis

Capt. Terrell (Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan) looking at a tank of Ceti Eels rolling under the sand:

"What da hell is dat?"

1.) Doesn't he have a tricorder?
2.) You'd think all the money they put into the movie, they'd be able to hire someone to teach enunciation.
3.) Paul Winfield is a good actor. Couldn't the director have had him repeat it a few times?
4.) Doesn't the Academy...

Nevermind.

TOS-ATCSL:
"Death to you all!...Death to you all!...Death to you all!"
Kind of looses it's meaning when being shouted by some old dude in a shower curtain.

Some of these lines are flat out hilarious for how bad they are.

Anyway my pick would be - Captain, I'm frightened

"Computer engage, the manual steering column" one of the most cringe worthy line of dialouge in Trek.

Re: The Single Worst Line of Dialogue in the entire Star Trek Franchis

The scene would have been better (or at least funnier) if it had been an old styled control yoke from a WW2 bomber. Like a big steering wheel. Instead of a joystick.

Oh, any line related to Spock's "marshmellon" machine from STV.
