Yet strangely enough, they didn't appreciate that when I shouted it at my 7-year-old daughter's soccer game.

You'd better watch it. In this day and age that might be considered as bullying and they might call the cops on you. You know "Just to be on the safe side".

Sad, but true. Actually, I was smart enough to say it only loud enough so my family could hear it. It sucks that people just don't have a sense of humor.

But just to keep this thread from going off track:

"I sent the whole kit and kaboodle to the Klingon engine room, where they'll be no tribble at all."

And on a related note:
Kirk: "Will somebody please close that door?" Gets hit in the head with a tribble.

Re: Best line in star trek hstory

"In this galaxy there's a mathimatical probability of three million Earth type planets, and in all 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."
This is the phrase that probably saved my life. As a teenager I became suicidal, because of physical abuse and self-hatred for being gay. One afternoon, that episode of TOS came on... it made me pause... and realize that I really am special... and just maybe I'm worth living. So for me, IMHO, this is the "best line in Star Trek history" and always will be.

More recently, I also like nuMcCoy's background [Karl Urban had to be channeling Dee Kelley when he ad-libbed this line]:
Yeah. Well, I got nowhere else to go. The ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce. All I got left is my bones.
I love this line from McCoy, too:
Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence.

Re: Best line in star trek hstory

There are many great lines. One of my favorites is the exchange between Kirk and Scotty in "Trouble with Tribbles". Kirk slowly coming to realize that the integrity of the Enterprise means more to Scotty then the integrity of its captain. Plus, Scotty's delight at his "punishment".

^^^Thanks for sharing, Sector 7. That McCoy quote resonates with me, too.

Picard - "After all, number one, we're only mortal."
Riker - "Speak for yourself, sir. I plan to live forever."

Great. I love it.
