    Another one I like:
    “First star to the right, and straight on till morning.”

    OR
    “Step on it.” (Admiral Pike’s phrase?)

    Wasn't it, "Let's see what she's got." ?

    I think you are right.

    TMP said "Out there. That away."

    Was it TWOK? It wasn’t Search for Spock. Hmmm…

    It was as close as TOS came.

    "Ahead, Warp Factor (fill in the blank)" seemed to be the standard Kirk warp order to close out an episode. Pike in "The Cage" came the closest to having a catchphrase with "Engage" but that was later used by Picard in TNG, the TNG Movies and PIC to infinitely greater effect.

    Yes. Though I'd point out that it was originally Pike's in "The Cage", and Zephram Cochrane's before that (in timeline).

    TMP: Mr Sulu, Ahead Warp One
    TWOK: Warp 5, Mr Sulu
    TSFS: Warp speed!

    I don't recall Kirk giving a warp command in TUC, the only speed/engine order he made was "Go to impulse power for Khitomer Orbit"

    “I don’t believe in no-win scenarios”.
    I used to have an admiral Kirk skin on Elite Force who said that over and over and over.

    As people age, they often forget the lessons of the past, set in their ways, thinking they know better. Shelby fell into this narcissistic trap that's as old as the human species itself.

    Age ≠ wisdom.

    That's much more Seven.

    Practical, utilitarian. Nothing cheesy about it.

    Ordinarily I would agree but right before Seven gives the order it looks like she's smiling or about to say something witty. So it might suggest she has a catchphrase all her own.

    Don't know if this has already been put out here, but:

    "Warp will now commence."

    A fairly important part of "Best of Both Worlds, Part II" was Shelby and Riker both putting aside their differences and burying the hatchet. Shelby did learn to remember to not take unnecessary risks, and Riker learned to remember that sometimes you do need to take a risk.

    We have no idea if she was the person who made that decision or not, and we have no idea on what basis that decision was made. It was a bad choice, but you're reading a lot into it that is not present in the text.

    Assuming that it was Shelby and not a Changeling: Nothing about Shelby's death was poetic justice. She didn't deserve to die just because she was mean to Riker once thirty years ago, or was part of an admiralty that made a bad choice in good faith. That's not any kind of justice, poetic or otherwise.

    Shelby's death wasn't "justice" in any way. There is a *poetic tragedy* of course, but no justice.
