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

Most people don't object to Warp 10 being the hard limit. Most people object to Warp 10 making you be everywhere at once. And the lizard thing.

^^ Absolutely right on. The lizard thing was just moronic. I could see Warp 10 being the speed limit for subspace. I guess to go faster, you need to jump into hyperspace.

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

Troi said this to someone who thought she was a full Betazoid.

I'm half Betazoid, my father was a Starfleet officer.
She said that without explaining why that would mean she was only half Betazoid--as if all Starfleet officers were male humans or something.

Riker: No! Damn it! Damn it to hell!

DATA: I believe it was Lieutenant Barclay. He appeared to be partially transformed into an arachnid.

PICARD:A spider?

DATA:I recognized the chitin colorations. He is becoming a member of the Pisauridae family.
Come on, humans never had spider ancestors

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

There's an early TNG episode - I can't recall which one offhand - which has the following exchange:

Picard: Ahead warp factor six.
Geordi: Aye, sir, full impulse.

It's not a bad line per se, but someone should have caught that mistake.

This is a guy who pilots the ship and maintains the engines?

Worset line ever:

Kira: I wouldn't beleive him if he told me water was wet.


This one hurts just reading it!

The West rules the universe. Your culture will adapt to service us. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.

At least it wasn't one of those space comparisons, where they say something like "You smell like a Bolian pig!", just to make it "sci fi".


Or when Kirk made "Katarian eggs". I guess the planet Kataria has only one sort of eggs. Next time, he was going to make Terran eggs. Err...

Many (unborn) Katarians died to bring us this omelette.

Well, that's the formula: Planet-adjective-(earth animal or character or made up animal name)
Example:
Denibiun Slime Devil
Tarsus BugEyed Catipillar
Klingon Wild Targ

Go ahead, make up your own. Maybe I'll make one of those Facebook pick-a-column things

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

Come to think of it, is the water wet? Wet is the state of being covered with water. Or extended, 'wet' is defined as solid state matter being covered with liquid state matter. So how can liquid be considered 'wet'? The same way a single particle can not be 'hot'.

When particle man is underwater does he get wet, or does the water get him instead?

Yeah, it is stupid how the formula for all alien things is (Participle of name of alien race) (Something commonly found on Earth). Why not make up nonsense words? Why would a predatory bird on Bolias be called a Bolian Hawk? Wouldn't it be a Scrishanaru or something?

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

I think I'll go with Janeway's speech at the end of "Alliances". I think that was Janeway at her soapbox-iest. Essentially, they've gone right back to where they were at the start of the episode: under constant attack by the Kazon, losing crewmen here and there, no allies to speak of, and we have Janeway saying Starfleet rules are the best allies they can have.

Um, no, they're not. Actual allies, like the Talaxians in "Basics", and the aliens in "Year of Hell" and "The Void" are the best allies you can have.

^
That speech is funny when you listen to her speech in Scorpion.

Alliances...
"We must not dirty ourselves and ally ourselves with these Kazon thugs and hold fast to our Federation values, no matter how hard it makes things, or how many of us die."

Scorpion...
"We must ally with the Borg and help them destroy their enemies in order to get what we want from them."

Amazing how much difference a year makes.

Cripes, I hate that scene in DS9: Little Green Men where he screams for her over and over.
