A good one from TOS:
Kirk: "Mr Spock. The women on your planet are logical. It is the only planet in the Galaxy that can make that claim."

Re: Best Trek Lines Ever

I'm a longtime TOS fan, but my absolute favorite line in all of Trek belongs to Jean Luc Picard:

Let's make sure history never forgets...
the name...
Enterprise


Kirk, in Return to Tomorrow:
Risk? Risk is our business! That's what this starship is all about..That's why we're aboard her!

Also, Edith Keeler's speech from City on the Edge of Forever, some of which you can read in my signature. These last two pretty much sum up the entire franchise, in my opinion.

Re: Best Trek Lines Ever

From TOS Requiem for Methuselah:

MCCOY: You wouldn't understand that, would you, Spock? You see, I feel sorrier for you than I do for him because you'll never know the things that love can drive a man to. The ecstasies, the miseries, the broken rules, the desperate chances, the glorious failures, the glorious victories. All of these things you'll never know simply because the word love isn't written into your book.

+1 to this. Annorax FTW -- one of my favourite villains, VOY or otherwise, Trek or otherwise.

Re: Best Trek Lines Ever

"Fate: protects fools, little children and ships named Enterprise."
- Riker, "Contagion"

The whole bit where Kirk was trying to get Scotty to explain why he threw the first punch in "Trouble With Tribbles".

Chang: "'To be or not to be?' That is the question which preoccupies our people, Captain Kirk. We need breathing room!"
Kirk: "Earth, Hitler, 1938."

I'll throw in another of my favorites - from "Measure of a Man" after Picard finishes his closing statement at the hearing he walks over to Captain Louvois and says:

"You wanted the chance to make law, here it is. Make it a good one".

I love that, and Stewart's delivery, as always, is spot on.
I'd like to throw in the closing statement itself.

Re: Best Trek Lines Ever

Well this thread is a lot of fun

How about this exchange from STTFF:

KIRK/McCOY: 'Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream merrily, merrily, merrily, ...merrily, life...'
KIRK: Come on, Spock? Why didn't you jump in?
SPOCK: I was trying to comprehend the meaning of the words.
McCOY: It's a song, you green-blooded a Vulcan. You sing it. The words aren't important. What's important is that you have a good time singing it.
SPOCK: Oh, I am sorry, Doctor. ...Were we having a good time?
McCOY: God! I liked him better before he died.

Actually I love those campfire scenes. And another of my favorites from the same movie:

KIRK: There's got to be a way out of this mess.
SPOCK: This is a new brig, Captain. It is escape proof.
KIRK: How do you know?
SPOCK: The designers tested it using the most intelligent and resourceful person they could find. He failed to escape.
KIRK: This person? He didn't by any chance have pointed ears and an unerring capacity for getting his shipmates into trouble, did he?
SPOCK: He did have pointed ears.


Yes, I am one of the few who like "The Final Frontier"

Mario

I always liked this exchange, at the end of TSFS:

Sarek: Your shipmates are people of good character.

Spock: They are my friends.

Worf: Die.
Q: Oh, very clever, Worf. Eat any good books lately?

Data(singing): Life forms....

Worf: Sir, I protest! I am *not* a merry man!

Worf: (smashes mandolin) Sorry.

Re: Best Trek Lines Ever

Most of the best ones have been mentioned. I always loved this exchange in "Our Man Bashir".
Bashir: I work for one of the nation states of this era, Great Britain, which is battling various other nations in what is called the Cold War. This apartment, my clothes, weapons, even my valet were provided to me by my government.
Garak: I think I joined the wrong intelligence service.

That's a great moment. Mark Lenard really sells how hard it is for Sarek to speak in more emotional terms--but how far he and Spock have come since "Journey to Babel."

He accepts his son's more human sentiments without criticism, even if he can't quite lower his own Vulcan reserve that far.

nuSarek: You once asked me why I married your mother. I married her because I loved her.

nuSpock (in a clearly "Go to hell" tone, addressing the science council): ...Live long and prosper.

Re: Best Trek Lines Ever

"Victory was within our grasp!!" - Gul Dukat

One of my favourite, most important moments in DS9. I almost feel for Dukat that, despite his arrogance, he almost did win.

""You know, there are some words I've known since I was a schoolboy: 'With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured...the first thought forbidden...the first freedom denied--chains us all irrevocably.' Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie, as wisdom...and warning. The first time any man's freedom is trodden on, we're all damaged. I fear that today"
- Picard

"Sir, may I say your attempt to hold the away team at bay, with a non-functioning weapon, was an act of unmitigated gall."
"Didn't fool you, huh?"
"I admire gall."

- Worf & Kevin Uxbridge


"Im sorry if I interrupted another waltz" - Picard [I found this hilarious]

I could fill pages, So I will stop.

For a bit.
