    Don't.....make....FUN ofWilliamShatner's-cadence. It...was....unique -- a style-all-his-own. One..we...SHALL rememberevermore.

    Who here besides me thinks Hugo Weaving attended Bill Shatner's Acting School before doing his Agent Smith performance in The Matix?

    (BTW: if you haven't seen the William Shatner Celebrity roast yet and don't mind hearing a LOT of homosexuality jokes -- George Takai was present -- then you may want to check it out. Some fairly funny moments there.)

    Excuse me sir, I need to speak with you a moment.

    Unless you were trying to be punny, I think you mean "gesture."

    *scrawls something illegible on citation pad, tears off a sheet and hands it to Nevada_MO_Guy*

    I'm going to let you off with just a warning, but I suggest you keep an eye on your homonyms. Have a nice day.

    Or when Spock asks "Isn't it time for a colorful metaphor"???

    My personal favorites:

    TOS (a stretch, since I hated this series): The Trouble with Tribbles
    TNG: Yesterday's Enterprise, The Best of Both Worlds, parts 1 and 2, Ensign Ro (the title character was my favorite)
    DS9 (my favorite Trek): Duet, the first three episodes of the second season (The Homecoming, The Circle, The Siege), Blood Oath, The Visitor, Trials and Tribble-lations, The Magnificant Ferengi (one of THE funniest Trek episodes, ever), Take Me Out to the Holosuite, the final nine episodes that wrapped up the Dominion War...just to name a few
    Voyager: Didn't like this series too much, but I liked the "Q" episodes - Death Wish, The Q and the Grey, and Q2
    Enterprise: HATED IT!

    Though I don't like TOS, I did like the movies (except Star Trek: The Motion Sickness...I mean Picture). Spock had some funny lines. Kirk trying to teach him "Row, row, row your boat" during The Final Frontier was one of the funniest movie moments.

    Another hilarious Trek movie moment was Deanna Troi getting drunk during First Contact:

    "Timeline? This is no time to argue about time, we DON'T HAVE THE TIME!" *pause* "What was I saying?"

    That's "Star Trek: The Motionless Picture"

    Gotta agree with Michael on the episode where Picard learns to play the flute while living a lifetime in a few minutes... Great episode (and my wife and I reply variations of the scene where Picard's wife tells his friend to go home and he just says "yes ma;am"...sometimes you just do what you're told...)

    Another Star Trek moment I personally enjoy immensely is Data singing at Troi and Riker's wedding.

    Corny but completely entertaining. :)

    I heavily border on being a hardcore trekkie. Believe it or not, VOY was my favorite of all of the Treks. While it was really TNG lite, something about it made me attach emotionally to that crew getting home.

    By the way, I have lots of links relating to Klingon martial arts if anyone wants me to list them.

    I always loved the way they said good bye in that episode ...

    "Go softly, Batai".

    And, from The Voyage Home ...

    Science Fiction is often the precurser to science fact. :D

    I really enjoyed the Homage they did to Star Trek on Futurama, where the energy cloud has captured the heads of the actors so it could have a star Trek convention:

    Remember that episode were the crew from Star Trek DS9 went back in time and interacted with the crew from the original Star Trek on Space Station K-7, with the little fuzzy tribbles and the two different looking klingons?

    Worf was there and the original Klingons were there and the DS9 fellows asked Worf why the klingons looked different and he said...........

    You think I remember what Worf said? Bah, I'm too busy looking at Jadzia Dax in a TOS female uniform, what were they thinking getting rid of that particular ensemble? A mini skirt and go-go boots just about commands respect!

    Yes, yes I am.

    I seem to recall reading a Next Generation book that had a thoughtline from Riker that went something like: "there is something about a Star Fleet uniform that makes a woman look like a boy."

    But Jadzia was my favorite character from that show, I loved her relationship with Sisko, and her later marriage to Worf. Can you blame me if I wondered how far down the spots went?

    It does seem a bit different from the female Klingon uniform.

    I watched Generations the other night. Giggled my silly head off at Data as he was getting used to the new emotion ship in him he was asked by the Captain to scan for life forms and he starts to sing...

    Life forms!
    You tiny little life forms!
    You precious little life forms!
    Where ...
    are ...
    you? .......123
