Webmaster's Note: It is impossible in this limited space to quote every wonderful line from all the Star Trek movies. As a Trekker since the late Sixties, I think they are all remarkable and have presented some of my favorites.

What the heck is TOS and TNG? TOS is The Original Series and TNG is The Next Generation.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture Movie Quotes (1979)

William Shatner (Captain James T. Kirk): Well, for a man who swore he'd never return to the Starfleet...
DeForest Kelley (Leonard 'Bones' McCoy, M.D.): Just a moment, Captain sir! Your revered Admiral Nogura invoked a little-known, seldom-used "reserve activation clause." In simpler language, Captain, they DRAFTED me!
William Shatner (Kirk): They didn't!
DeForest Kelley(Bones): This was your idea! This was your idea, wasn't it?
William Shatner (Kirk): Bones, there's a... thing... out there.
DeForest Kelley(Bones): Why is any object we don't understand always called "a thing"?

William Shatner (Kirk): Let's take a look. Full sensor scan, Mr. Spock. They can't expect us not to look them over now.
Stephen Collins (Commander Willard Decker): Now that we're looking down their throat.
William Shatner (Kirk): Right, now that we got them just where they want us.

William Shatner (Kirk): Spock, this "child" is about to wipe out every living thing on Earth! Now what do you suggest we do? Spank it?
Leonard Nimoy (Commander Spock): Each of us, at some time in our lives, turns to someone - a father, a brother, a God - and asks, "Why am I here? What was I meant to be?"

William Shatner (Kirk): Let's take a look. Full sensor scan, Mr. Spock. They can't expect us not to look them over now.
Stephen Collins (Commander Willard Decker): Now that we're looking down their throat.
William Shatner (Kirk): Right, now that we got them just where they want us.

Stephen Collins (Decker): V'ger... expects an answer.
William Shatner (Kirk): An answer? I don't know the question.

Leonard Nimoy(Spock): It only knows that it needs, Commander. But, like so many of us, it does not know what.

Marcy Lafferty (Chief DiFalco): Heading sir?
William Shatner (Kirk): Out there... thataway.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture Trivia
Did you know?
That producers and studio honchos were already looking foward to a second Star Trek series but feared Shatner's salary demands might rule him out. Stephen Collins was seen as a possible next starship captain.

That Marcy Lafferty, who plays DiFalco, was married to William Shatner at the time. No, that's not the wife who drowns. Shatner's next (3rd) wife, Nerine Kidd is the Lady of the Pool.

That Uhura's communications earpieces are the only original props from the original TV series. They were dug out of storage when it was realized someone had forgotten to make new ones for the movie.

Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan Movie Quotes (1982)

Leonard Nimoy(Spock): As a matter of cosmic history, it has always been easier to destroy, than to create.

William Shatner (Kirk): How we deal with death is at least as important as how we deal with life, wouldn't you say?
Kirstie Alley (Saavik): As I indicated, Admiral, that thought had not occurred to me.
William Shatner (Kirk): Well, now you have something new to think about. Carry on.

William Shatner (Kirk): No. Not like this. I haven't faced death. I've cheated death. I've tricked my way out of death and patted myself on the back for my ingenuity. I know nothing.
Merritt Butrick (David Marcus): You knew enough to tell Saavik that how we face death is at least as important as how we face life.
William Shatner (Kirk): Just words.
Merritt Butrick (David): But good words. That's where ideas begin. Maybe you should listen to them. I was wrong about you. And I'm sorry.
William Shatner (Kirk): Is that what you came here to say?
Merritt Butrick (David): Mainly. And also that I'm proud - very proud - to be your son.


DeForest Kelley(Bones): Where are we going?
William Shatner (Kirk): Where they went.
DeForest Kelley(Bones): Suppose they went nowhere?
William Shatner (Kirk): Then this will be your big chance to get away from it all.

Ricardo Montalban (Khan Noonien Singh): To the last, I will grapple with thee.
Ricardo Montalban (Khan): From hell's heart, I stab at thee. For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee.

Leonard Nimoy(Spock): If I may be so bold, it was a mistake for you to accept promotion. Commanding a starship is your first, best destiny; anything else is a waste of material.
William Shatner (Kirk): I would not presume to debate you.
Leonard Nimoy(Spock): That is wise. Were I to invoke logic, however, logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
William Shatner (Kirk): Or the one.
Leonard Nimoy(Spock): You are my superior officer. You are also my friend. I have been and always shall be yours.

William Shatner (Kirk): We are gathered here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. But it should be noted that this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... human.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Trivia
Did you know?
That this is a continuation of the TOS episode "The Space Seed" which aired February 16,1967, the 22nd story of the first season.

That it is therefore a bit odd that Khan recognizes Chekov inasmuch as Walter Koening wasn't in the original episode as he wasn't yet a cast member?

That Leonard Nimoy had to be promised a great death scene for Spock before he would sign on. But producer Harve Bennett cleverly asked Nimoy to do a mind meld just in case they wanted to bring Spock back in another movie.

That's Khan's final monologue is taken from Herman Melville' book "Moby Dick" which Capt. Picard will quote in Star Trek: First Contact.

That all of Khan's men were Chippendale dancers at the time.


That Merritt Butrick who played Kirk's son David Marcus died in 1989 of AIDS. His picture appears on Kirk's desk in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country .

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock Movie Quotes (1984)

James Doohan (Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott): The more they over think the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.

Security Guard: Make it quick, Admiral. They're moving him to the Federation funny farm.
William Shatner (Kirk): Yes, poor friend. I hear he's fruity as a nutcake.

DeForest Kelley(Bones): It seems, Admiral, that I have all his marbles.

Miguel Ferrar (Excelsior First Officer): (on communicator) Yellow alert! Captain to the bridge! Yellow alert!
James B. Sikking (Captain Styles): Bridge, this is the Captain. How can you have yellow alert in spacedock?
Miguel Ferrar (Excelsior First Officer): (on communicator) Sir, someone is stealing the Enterprise!

William Shatner (Kirk): My God, Bones, what have I done?
DeForest Kelley(Bones): What you had to do; what you always do: turn death into a fighting chance to live.

William Shatner (Kirk): The needs of the one outweighed the needs of the many.

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock Trivia
Did you know?
That the only way they got Leonard Nimoy back was to offer him the job of director.

That Merritt Butrick who played Kirk's son David Marcus died in 1989 of AIDS. His picture appears on Kirk's desk in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country .

That those are the same self-destruct codes for the Enterprise as those used in "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield," a TOS episode? Wouldn't you think they'd change them once in awhile?

Did you spot the Tribble at the bar when McCoy is trying to rent a spaceship?

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home Movie Quotes (1986)

DeForest Kelley(Bones): C'mon Spock, it's me, McCoy. You really have gone where no man's gone before. Can't you tell me what it felt like?

William Shatner (Kirk): Everybody remember where we parked.

William Shatner (Kirk): Oh, him? He's harmless. Part of the free speech movement at Berkeley in the sixties. I think he did a little too much LDS.

Catherine Hicks (Dr. Gillian Taylor): Do you guys like Italian?
Kirk: Yes.
Leonard Nimoy(Spock): No.
Kirk: Yes.
Spock: No.
Kirk: I love Italian,
(looks at Spock)
Kirk: and so do you.
Spock: Yes.

Leonard Nimoy(Spock): Your use of language has altered since our arrival. It is currently laced with, shall we say, more colorful metaphors, "double dumb-ass on you" and so forth.
William Shatner (Kirk): Oh, you mean the profanity?
Leonard Nimoy(Spock): Yes.
William Shatner (Kirk): Well that's simply the way they talk here. Nobody pays any attention to you unless you swear every other word.

DeForest Kelley(Bones): You realize that by giving him the formula you're altering history.
James Doohan (Scotty): Why, how do we know he didn't invent the thing?

James Doohan (Scotty): Admiral, there be whales here!

William Shatner (Kirk): Mr. Spock, have you accounted for the variable mass of whales and water in your time re-entry program?
Leonard Nimoy(Spock): Mr. Scott cannot give me exact figures, Admiral, so...I will make a guess.
William Shatner (Kirk): A guess? You, Spock? That's extraordinary!
Leonard Nimoy(Spock): I don't think he understands.
DeForest Kelley(Bones): No, Spock. He means that he feels safer about your guesses than most other people's facts.
Leonard Nimoy(Spock): Then you're saying...it is a compliment?
DeForest Kelley(Bones): It is.
Leonard Nimoy(Spock): Ah. Then I will try to make the best guess I can.

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home Trivia
Did you know?
That again, Leonard Nimoy directed.

That Eddie Murphy was considered for the part that became Dr. Taylor? But Paramount nixed the idea.

That great scene with everybody splashing in the water was ad-libbed. James Doohan fell in the water and everbody else dived in!

That the success of this film finally convinced network execs to do another Star Trek TV series.

That this is the webmaster's favorite of the movies?

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier Movie Quotes (1989)

William Shatner (Kirk): Damn it, Bones, you're a doctor and you know that hurt and pain can't be taken away with a wave of a magic wand. There are things that makes us who we are. We lost that we lose ourselves! I don't want my pain taken away, I need my pain!

Leonard Nimoy(Spock): Perhaps "because it is there" is not sufficient reason for climbing a mountain.

William Shatner (Kirk): I've always known I'll die alone.

George Murdock ("God"): You doubt me?
William Shatner (Kirk): I seek proof.
Leonard Nimoy(Spock): Jim, you don't ask the Almighty for His I.D.

Leonard Nimoy(Spock): Please Captain, not in front of the Klingons !

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier Trivia
Did you know?
That the mountain Captain Kirk is climbing in Yosemite is named El Capitan.

That ILM, Industrial Light and Magic, George Lucas' special effect shop was unable to work on this Trek as they had on the others. They were too busy with "Ghostbusters 2" and "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." Regrettably, it shows.

That they wanted Sean Connery to play Sybok. Now that would have been cool.

William Shatner (Kirk): Captain's log, stardate 9529.1. This is the final cruise of the starship Enterprise under my command. This ship and her history will shortly become the care of another crew.

DeForest Kelley(Bones): We'll be dead!
Leonard Nimoy(Spock): I've been dead before.

William Shatner (Kirk): Note to Galley; Romulan Ale no longer to be served at diplomatic functions.

Star Trek: Generations Movie Quotes (1994)

William Shatner (Kirk): You said history considers me dead. Who am I to argue with history?
Patrick Stewart (Captain Jean-Luc Picard): You're a Starfleet officer. You have a duty!
William Shatner (Kirk): I don't need to be lectured by you. I was out saving the galaxy when your grandfather was still in diapers. Personally, I think the galaxy owes me one.

William Shatner (Kirk):I take it the odds are against us and the situation is grim.
Patrick Stewart (Picard): You could say that.
William Shatner (Kirk): Sounds like fun!

Patrick Stewart (Picard): Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived. After all Number One, we're only mortal.
Jonathan Frakes (Commander Will Riker): Speak for yourself sir, I plan to live forever.

Star Trek: First Contact Movie Quotes (1996)

Borg: We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.

Patrick Stewart (Picard): Reports of my assimilation have been greatly exaggerated.

James Cromwell (Cochrane): Hot damn! You're heroic.

Alfre Woodard (Lily Sloane): Jean Luc, blow up the damn ship!
Patrick Stewart (Picard): No! Noooooooooo! They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. The line must be drawn here, this far, no farther. And I will make them pay for what they've done!

Brent Spiner (Data): And for a time, I was tempted by her offer.
Patrick Stewart (Picard): How long a time?
Brent Spiner (Data): 0.68 seconds sir. For an android, that is nearly an eternity.

Tom Hardy (Shinzon): We will no longer bow before anyone as slaves. Not the Romulans and not your mighty Federation. We are a race bred for war... and conquest.

Tom Hardy (Shinzon): You are me! The same noble Picard blood runs through our veins. Had you lived my life, you'd be doing exactly as I am. Look in the mirror and see yourself. Consider that, Captain. I can think of no greater torment for you.
Patrick Stewart (Picard): I'm a mirror for you as well.
Tom Hardy (Shinzon): Not for long. I'm afraid you won't survive to witness the victory of the echo... over the voice.

Brent Spiner (Data): The B-4 is physically identical to me, although his neural pathways are not as advanced. But even if they were, he would not be me.
