Re: Favourite iconic Trek moment

For me, a toss-up between all the Picard entries and the "It's real!!" one. I have to give the vote to the Locutus one because of how crazy that and the scenes surrounding it were and how monumental it was in-universe.

It was a toss up between "Khaaaan", "The Line is drawn here..." and "You Klingon bastards killed my son". However, I went with Khaaan because it makes me smile every time I hear it.

Kirk, on motorbike, takes a good look at the USS Enterprise under construction in the Iowa shipyard before enlisting in Starfleet.

(yes, I know the ship is only half as big in this scene as it is in all the others. It's still awesome!)

Re: Favourite iconic Trek moment

Very tough. I finally voted Spock's death over Locutus. After watching a Shatner intervew on DVD about that scene I don't enjoy it as much as I used to. He wanted to change the scene so that Nemoy would be behind a opaque screen and only his shadow could be seen when the two of them touch hands on the glass. In other words, another one of those "Let's make the scene all about me" moments for Shatner. So now when I see the scene I think "No wonder so many of Shatner's costars talk about him taking their lines and their best scenes." Of course, the directors said no. In the interview Shatner really seems not to understand why they said no to that suggestion.

I liked the scene when the young Kirk looked at the Enterprise being built very iconic even it was in last years Star Trek film.

I voted for Locutus, too. If the next part, "Mr. Worf. Fire." had its own listing I would have chosen that.

I would include the reveal of the Enterprise in drydock in TMP.

For everything there is a first time, and THAT was one tremendous first time to see the Enterprise in big widescreen glory. As far as visual impact and wonder in ST, that moment hasn't been topped.

This. I think when it was first broadcast I was too young to understand the magnitude of what was going on. Then I saw it as a re-run for the first time years later and was blown away. That line from Riker and the over-the-top "SHIT IS ABOUT TO GO DOWN" musical sting after it rocked my world. Definitely the first (but thankfully not last ) big "HOLY SHIT" moment in my long history of Star Trek watching.

This one is good for me.

Also the scene in the new movie where the Enterprise is rising out of Titan's atmosphere with Saturn looming in the background- that scene was just awesome.

Re: Favourite iconic Trek moment

I voted Locutus of borg, simply because it was a very moving line, and shocking the first time i saw it. I also liked the "They attack ships, we fall back, they attack entire colonies, we fall back, no not again, the line must be drawn here, no further"

I also liked the end of voyager end game, and also the end of Enterprise, The best scean in Enterprise, were the captains all say the thing together, you know i bet he signed of for archer thinking he would get to say the These are the voyages, and only get to say "To boldly go were no one has gone before" Oh another part i liekd was at the end of "All Good Things" were picard sits down, looks around troi says "Whats wrong" and picard is like "I should have done this a long time ago" Star Trek has some awsome moments in it.
