The S-Word

When Data uttered the infamous S word, was this the only time the word was used in Trek history?

I loved it. Best line in the TNG movies.

Re: Shit!

Once or twice Picard has uttered the word "Merde" on the air,
which is surprising because in french that's the word for "Shit."

Re: Shit!

Wasn't 'chicken shit' used in TVH? There seemed to be a lot of swearing in TFF too, although to be honest it's a while since I saw either movie.

Re: Shit!

Also, in Trek XI when Nimoy tells Kirk that he is Spock, Kirk reacts by saying "bullshit."

So no, Generations is not the only time in Trek we've heard the word shit, but I think it might have been the first.

Do you recall what episodes (or movie) this was used? For the life of me, i don't remember that.

I had to edit the thread title. You can curse as much as you want in the fucking thread, but we have to leave them out of the main page, sorry

"The Last Outpost" is one. Season 2's "Elementary, Dear Data" is the only other one I know of for sure.

Doing a quick search of the transcripts on http://www.chakoteya.net/ only brings up those two examples, which is surprising, I thought there were a couple more than that in early S1.
