Spock's "Khan!"

The only time I;ve ever been embarrassed about being a Trekker.
I thought so too at first watch. The second time I watched, I noticed ha Quinto's yell sets up the next shot, in which Khan and Vengeance plummet past Enterprise on their way to the San Francisco crash sequence. It's actually very well done... we'd almost forgotten they were still out there.
Honestly, the major problem with the "KHHAAAN!" yell wasn't that it was Spock doing it... but that the whole character arc was unearned, since Kirk and Spck in the setting have known each other for barely more than a year. As a Clever Touch and piece of dramatic timing it's otherwise fine.

^I never had a problem with that line. Shelby was wrong to go around Riker to Picard. Every ship's chain of command differs slightly, but on the Enterprise, it was clear that any and all matters went to Riker before he took them to Picard himself. That Shelby refused to listen to Riker's earlier warning was her fault, not Riker's. He was completely justified in what he said and how he said it.

I know this wasn't actually meant for me, but I totally agree with this.

I agree with you that Riker was completely justified (and if they weren't in crisis mode - he should have had her cleaning bathrooms) but I just wish that the line had been cleverer or Riker's delivery less pompous. It makes me cringe but I understand how to others that might be their favourite line.

In TMP, (a movie I love BTW) we get this exchange when Spock returns to the ship and is lying in sickbay:

Shatner: Spock

Kelley: Jim

Shatner: Bones!

That's dialogue?
An economic translation of;

Kirk: "Spock, I need to know what happened out there."

Bones: "Jim, he's in no fit state to answer questions."

Kirk: "Bones, this is an emergency! I don't have time to coddle him..."
Most likely true, but it still sounded and looked silly in the film. To me anyway

From what we saw of Klingon politics during the K'mpec, Duras and Gorwon eras, it's not an unreasonable hypothesis.

Yes, but it's from a scene that was cut from the theatrical release.

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

"You're all astronauts on some kind of star trek...!"
This one gets my vote.

I thought the entire role-reversal segment in STID was terrible. It was contrived and it forced them to have a really anticlimactic ten minutes. They should have come up with their own scene instead of bogarting the TWOK scene just for the sake of giddying the fanboys.
This. If I want to watch TWOK, I'll watch TWOK.

I thought that was more funny than bad, I sort of enjoyed it.

Ah, I see. I was going to ask about this, as I did not remember that line.

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

That whole segment was cut - starting with Valeris sliding down the "fire pole" and bouncing against the wobbly cardboard wall with no backing support. That entire scene just seemed really badly done and I can understand why it was cut. Was Nick Meyer out that day and an understudy or a B-roll director in charge of things? It always appeared very out of place to me.
