I often say "Back off. Back off." To my kids when I see they are about to get into trouble.

Re: Trek-related Euphemisms

I will sometimes use "Botany Bay!" in place of a mild curse, inspired by Chekov in TWOK. Sometimes I'll even use the full: "Botany Bay? Botany Bay! Oh no!"

Yes, I know I'm weird.

No, you're strange. Weird people are normal people who act strange to attract attention.

This isn't really a euphemism, but sometimes if my friend is wearing a red shirt, I'll go up to them and say "Nice knowing ya!";D

Heck, I don't even use it in place of a curse, I always say it that way, with Chekov's inflections, whenever I meet *anyone* who studied... wait for it... Botany.

Another one, for me: "Working..." in monotone, of course. Also, the South Park variant, "Working, bark, bark..."
Windows Vista and computer updates, in general, cause this reaction from me.

I also use "Make it so", "Engage" and "No intelligent life here".

Recently, I have been teaching my friend's son to drive my truck. When I said, "Is the parking brake on?" he gave me a look that would kill most normal people... At least, he got the reference.

"Well thank you, Goddess of Empathy" - sarcastically. To male or female. Especially male though.

Re: Trek-related Euphemisms

Sometimes I yell "KHAAAAAAN!" when my computer does something stupid.

At church at the sign of peace, if I can't reach to shake someone's hand, I give the Vulcan salute.
