"Computer engage, the manual steering column" one of the most cringe worthy line of dialouge in Trek.
At least he didn't try mounting a chair or putting his pelvis near Data's head while leaning on the console with his foot.

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.
Or equally plausable that all Starfleet vessels had standing orders to catalouge gaseous anomalies and were carrying the equipment to do so.

Dr. Coleman (to Janice Lester in Kirk's body): You couldn't because you love him!

Every time I watch this scene with Harry Landers and Shatner, it makes me laugh.

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

To be complete I think we should include something from TAS (though probably not the worst line in Star Trek)

In Mudd's passion:
KIRK: Strange, that's the way I feel about you, too. My dear friend, Spock.

Anything Tasha Yar said in season 1 of TNG. Her dialogue was terribly written, her character was dreadful and Denise Crosby was awful as Tasha.

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

I've always hated this line from Carol Marcus. It's very clunky and nothing a real person would say:

"I canNOT and will NOT subscribe to your interpretation of this event!"

Ugh.

I do like Carol Marcus as a character, and now of course we have nuCarol....

I think the director's cut or special edition DVD (or whatever it is) version of this line is much worse than the version I had on VHS. She's a little more subdued on the VHS version. Haven't seen the BD.

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

The Blu-ray version is the theatrical version, so it's the 'subdued' reading. I agree the delivery is worse in the director's cut. It's still a clunky line either way.

To quote Harrison Ford: "George, you can type this sh&%, but you sure can't say it."

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

In Generations, The Enterprise arrives at the Veridian 3, and the Duras sisters' BOP is not responding to their hails.

Troi offers the most useless line ever: "Perhaps they're on the surface."

NO.

Which reminds me, the line that made me scream in horror more than any other:

"For a moment there, I thought you were just a dumb hick who only has sex with farm animals. " Uhura to Kirk, ST:XI

I freaking HATE that line. It just sounds over the top crass.

"You have no idea how much I'm restraining myself from knocking you on your ass." Archer to T'Pol, who he's just met, in front of his and her superior officers. What a wanker.
Wow! You read my mind...twice! As much as I enjoyed ST09, that line was completely uncalled for and completely out of character for Trek. While the film was rated PG-13, that line crosses the line because it is exceedingly tasteless and crass.

As for Archer's line, once again, here's a line that is so completely uncalled for and completely out of character for TV Trek, that it set the tone for the character that was never shaken for me. This was supposed to be Kirk's hero, the first captain to boldly go... and instead of showing leadership, he lowers himself to base language. I wanted Archer to be my next great starship commander following my favorites: Kirk, Picard, Riker, Jellico, and Sisko. Instead, we got a lightweight character but played by a capable actor. What a shame.
