If we're going to be damned, let's be damned for what we really are.

Re: Best line in star trek hstory

An hilarious line from William Rotsler's Star Trek Short Stories. Admiral Tatenen, warning Admiral Kirk about the friendish Klingons: "You give them a parsec and they'll take a light-year, son!"

What a cautious bunch! (1 parsec is 3.26 light years. Did not do research!)

The sad part is I wouldn't have known there was anything wrong with that Trekified expression had it not been pointed out to me.

Re: Best line in star trek hstory

In Deja Q, Worf's response is legendary, and Q's comeback here is cute, making the below exchange my favorite:

"I have no powers. Q, the ordinary."
"Q, the liar. Q, the misanthrope."
"Q, the miserable. Q, the desperate. What must I do to convince you people?"
"Die."
"Oh, very clever, Worf. Eat any good books, lately?"

Re: Best line in star trek hstory

Another one of my favorites - and I'm going from memory, so I may not have it exactly: from "The Ultimate Computer":

Spock (to Kirk): "Computers make excellent and efficient servants, but I have no desire to serve under them. A starship runs on many things, including loyalty to a man. One man. And nothing can ever replace it. Or him."

By memory, but you'll get the idea:

"We found intelligent life everywhere in the galaxy, except the programming offices of NBC."
