Star Trek Tos quotes by Phil Farrand
#1. When taking Spock to see the spores, Leila comments, "It's not much further." having been beaten about the head severely on the difference between "further" and "farther," I believe I can say with some trembling confidence that she should say, "it's not much farther." "Further" means "to a greater extent or degree" whereas "farther" means "to a greater distance." (I know this is really picky, but hey, that's my business.) #Quote by Phil Farrand
Star Trek Tos quotes by Sylvester McCoy
#2. I once went to a 'Star Trek' convention by mistake - I thought I was going to a 'Doctor Who' one. #Quote by Sylvester McCoy
Star Trek Tos quotes by LeVar Burton
#3. I'm enormously proud of the fact that Star Trek has really not just sparked an interest, but encouraged, a few generations of people to go into the sciences. #Quote by LeVar Burton
Star Trek Tos quotes by Lyanda Lynn Haupt
#4. One evening I came home and there on the couch I found my husband, Tom, with a freshly fledged crow sitting calmly in his lap. They were busy watching Star Trek: The Next Generation; since Captain Jean-Luc Picard was in the middle of an absorbing monologue, they hardly registered my arrival, but finally they both glanced my way, Tom looking a bit sheepish, the crow nibbling bits from a can of gourmet cat food. I thought of something Bernd Heinrich wrote, inspired by his raven studies, "Living with another creature, you naturally feel closer to it the more activities that can be shared, especially important activities like watching TV. #Quote by Lyanda Lynn Haupt
Star Trek Tos quotes by A.E. Van Vogt
#5. Resistance, however, is useless. (1939) #Quote by A.E. Van Vogt
Star Trek Tos quotes by Mojo Nixon
#6. People from outer space they come up to me, they don't look like Doctor Spock, they don't look like Klingons, all that Star Trek jive. They look like Elvis. #Quote by Mojo Nixon
Star Trek Tos quotes by Gene Roddenberry
#7. Matter of internal security - the age-old cry of the oppressor.
Picard #Quote by Gene Roddenberry
Star Trek Tos quotes by Kristin Miller
#8. There are no new releases that I'd want to see, but they've got the most recent Star Trek movie," Carter said, flipping through the channels...
"We can watch it for the small price of our unborn child. #Quote by Kristin Miller
Star Trek Tos quotes by Gene Roddenberry
#9. I handed them a script and they turned it down. It was too controversial. It talked about concepts like, 'Who is God?' The Enterprise meets God in space; God is a life form, and I wanted to suggest that there may have been, at one time in the human beginning, an alien entity that early man believed was God, and kept those legends. But I also wanted to suggest that it might have been as much the Devil as it was God. After all, what kind of god would throw humans out of Paradise for eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. One of the Vulcans on board, in a very logical way, says, 'If this is your God, he's not very impressive. He's got so many psychological problems; he's so insecure. He demands worship every seven days. He goes out and creates faulty humans and then blames them for his own mistakes. He's a pretty poor excuse for a supreme being. #Quote by Gene Roddenberry
Star Trek Tos quotes by Rik Vollaerts
#10. But things are not as they teach us- for the world is hollow and I have touched the sky! #Quote by Rik Vollaerts
Star Trek Tos quotes by Michael Piller
#11. As I approach a new project, my process always begins with the question: what is it about? Here's one answer that might apply to a Star Trek movie...

I want it to be about the most horrible, treacherous aliens ever known to man who are about to destroy life as we know it, leading to the most spectacular thrill ride of an adventure with fantastic space battles and huge explosions and great special effects -- a white knuckle ride for the movie audience.

Yeah, but what's it about?

I can write space battles with the best of them, but what makes that space battle interesting to me is: why are they fighting? What are the stakes? What does the hero lose if he loses? And what does he win if he wins? Why should we care?

I'm talking about the second level of story-telling. The level that examines what's going on inside the characters - their moral and ethical dilemmas, their doubts, fears, inner conflicts, how they change as the story progresses. These are the things that make us, as members of an audience, get emotionally involved. #Quote by Michael Piller
Star Trek Tos quotes by Seth MacFarlane
#12. I was a huge 'Star Trek' fan. I loved the 'Twilight Zone' growing up. In the future, I hope to create some thoughtful, sci-fi drama. #Quote by Seth MacFarlane
Star Trek Tos quotes by Maya Van Wagenen
#13. If you haven't guessed yet, my family is made up of ultra-nerds. This is not necessarily a bad thing. We play games like Scrabble and watch documentaries together. I have always known that I am going to college. Yet, there are times when it can get a little embarrassing. As Mom admits, "Re-enacting is the final step before Star Trek conventions." In a couple of years, my family will probably be doing that, too. #Quote by Maya Van Wagenen
Star Trek Tos quotes by Gene Roddenberry
#14. Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms. [ ... ] If we cannot learn to actually enjoy those small differences, to take a positive delight in those small differences between our own kind, here on this planet, then we do not deserve to go out into space and meet the diversity that is almost certainly out there. #Quote by Gene Roddenberry
Star Trek Tos quotes by Robert Kazinsky
#15. I'm a geek - I read fantasy novels, I play 'World of Warcraft,' I'm a massive gamer, I have 'Star Trek' outfits. #Quote by Robert Kazinsky
Star Trek Tos quotes by Mila Kunis
#16. I'm still a 'Star Trek' fan. You never stop being one. #Quote by Mila Kunis
Star Trek Tos quotes by Star Trek The Next Generation

Star Trek Tos quotes by Elle Aycart
#18. Because I tried all those voice options, of course. Haven't you?" She looked at him expectantly, as if scrolling through all the language and voice options in the GPS was a total must.
"Frankly? It didn't occur to me. I stuck with the first one."
She rolled her eyes. "There's one in Klingon. I used to have it on when I drove my geekier friends to the yearly Star Trek conventions in Vegas. They'd translate for me."
He wasn't sure which part of her statement was more disturbing to him: the friends that spoke Klingon, or the yearly visits to Star Trek conventions. Or that she had geekier friends. Finally he opted for one. "You have friends that speak Klingon?"
She shook her head. "No. Not fluently, no. It helped a lot that from LA to Vegas is for the most part a straight line. You really don't want to get lost in the Mojave Desert with a handful of bickering Klingons and Vulcans who can achieve global domination with a laptop but can't figure out how to change a tire on the car. #Quote by Elle Aycart
Star Trek Tos quotes by Thomas Tull
#19. We love being in business with Guillermo [Del Toro]and frankly that movie, if you look it up, did I think more business than the first X-Men, did more than Batman Begins, our first movie, did more than Superman Returns, The Fast and the Furious, Star Trek- so for a movie that was an original property that we made up it's done really well. #Quote by Thomas Tull
Star Trek Tos quotes by Wil Wheaton
#20. I met [Shatner] on the set of Star Trek V, and he was horrible to me. He was cruel, and dismissive, and treated me the way I understand he treats pretty much everyone who tells him how much they loved him as Captain Kirk. #Quote by Wil Wheaton
Star Trek Tos quotes by Peter Allison
#21. She asked another question: "What does it matter if the rhinos die out? Is it really important that they are saved?"
This would normally have riled me ... but I had come to think of her as Dr. Spock from Star Trek - an emotionless, purely logical creature, at least with regards to her feelings for animals. Like Spock, though, I knew there were one or two things that stirred her, so I gave an honest reply.
" ... to be honest, it doesn't matter. No economy will suffer, nobody will go hungry, no diseases will be spawned. Yet there will never be a way to place a value on what we have lost. Future children will see rhinos only in books and wonder how we let them go so easily. It would be like lighting a fire in the Louvre and watching the Mona Lisa burn. Most people would think 'What a pity' and leave it at that while only a few wept #Quote by Peter Allison
Star Trek Tos quotes by Q
#22. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid.

Star Trek Tos quotes by Robert H. Justman
#23. We're all in outer space, Jerry, and we're in color. NBC claims to be the first full- color network, so let's prove it for them. When you light the sets, throw wild colors in - magenta, red, green, any color you can find - especially behind the actors when they're in a close shot. Be dramatic. In fact, go overboard. Backlight the women and make them more beautiful. Take some chances. No one can tell you that's not the way the future will look. #Quote by Robert H. Justman
Star Trek Tos quotes by Jonathan Ames
#24. The real self and the public self are intertwined, like a tumor around an organ, and you can't cut the tumor or you'll kill the organ, so they live together, until the tumor chokes the organ off (but which self is the tumor?). Or it's like something out of Star Trek. The Borg. #Quote by Jonathan Ames
Star Trek Tos quotes by Dave Barry
#25. The universe has fascinated mankind for many, many years, dating back to the very earliest episodes of Star Trek, when the brave crew of the Enterprise set out, wearing pajamas, to explore the boundless voids of space, which turned out to be as densely populated as Queens, New York. Virtually every planet they found was inhabited, usually by evil beings with cheap costumes and Russian accents, so finally the brave crew of the Enterprise returned to Earth to gain weight and make movies. #Quote by Dave Barry
Star Trek Tos quotes by David Gerrold
#26. Doesn't anybody ever want to talk about anything else besides 'Star Trek?' There were 79 episodes of the series; there were 55 different writers. I was only one of them. #Quote by David Gerrold
Star Trek Tos quotes by Cordelia Fine
#27. An interest in Star Trek and an antisocial lifestyle may not, in fact, be unassailable correlates of talent in computer programming. #Quote by Cordelia Fine
Star Trek Tos quotes by Dayton Ward
#28. You want to know the problem with going somewhere no one's ever been? It takes so damned long to get there. #Quote by Dayton Ward
Star Trek Tos quotes by Charles Dance
#29. I've done a couple of fan conventions and [the fans] are legion. They're rather like Star Wars or Star Trek fans. We're very glad of the loyal fans - but it's a strange way to spend your life, dressing up like Star Wars. At least we change our costumes - I don't spend 40 years dressed up as Tywin Lannister. #Quote by Charles Dance
Star Trek Tos quotes by Dennis E. Taylor
#30. It blew me away that almost two hundred years after Shatner first famously didn't actually say, "Beam me up, Scotty," people still knew Star Trek. Now that's a franchise. #Quote by Dennis E. Taylor
Star Trek Tos quotes by Sam Heughan
#31. I was a big 'Battlestar Galactica' fan and 'Star Trek' fan. I grew up watching those. #Quote by Sam Heughan
Star Trek Tos quotes by Junot Diaz
#32. Look, without our stories, without the true nature and reality of who we are as People of Color, nothing about fanboy or fangirl culture would make sense. What I mean by that is: if it wasn't for race, X-Men doesn't sense. If it wasn't for the history of breeding human beings in the New World through chattel slavery, Dune doesn't make sense. If it wasn't for the history of colonialism and imperialism, Star Wars doesn't make sense. If it wasn't for the extermination of so many Indigenous First Nations, most of what we call science fiction's contact stories doesn't make sense. Without us as the secret sauce, none of this works, and it is about time that we understood that we are the Force that holds the Star Wars universe together. We're the Prime Directive that makes Star Trek possible, yeah. In the Green Lantern Corps, we are the oath. We are all of these things - erased, and yet without us - we are essential. #Quote by Junot Diaz
Star Trek Tos quotes by Majel Barrett Roddenberry
#33. This is a new land, this is a new place, this is a new world, this is unknown. This is uncharted, this is all there is. We don't have any other place to go. I always quote Gene as saying "Why are we now going into space? Well, why did we trouble to look past the next mountain? Our prime obligation to ourselves is to make the unknown known. We are on a journey to keep an appointment with whatever we are." And that was his whole philosophy of Star Trek, of life, of everything else. #Quote by Majel Barrett Roddenberry
Star Trek Tos quotes by Michael Harris
#34. The psychologist Geoffrey Miller, when pondering why we haven't come across any alien species as yet, decided that they were probably all addicted to video games and are thus brought to an extreme state of apathy - the exploratory opposite of the heroes in Star Trek who spend all their time seeking out "new life and new civilizations."

Star Trek Tos quotes by Remi Aubuchon
#35. I've always been a sci-fi geek, and I've always loved it. It's my favorite genre of all. The irony of ironies is that, in my early career, I just really never worked in it. "Star Trek" was very interested in me, partially because I did "From the Earth to the Moon," and I was really interested in them, but the timing just never worked out. #Quote by Remi Aubuchon
Star Trek Tos quotes by Rene Auberjonois
#36. I love the fact that it's not only about Star Trek, but about science fiction in general, and science. #Quote by Rene Auberjonois
Star Trek Tos quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#37. Were genuine aliens to find us ... the chances were fairly good they would appear in a form beyond reckoning, shaped by the requirements of their environment. It was only for the convenience of the costume department of Star Trek that people believed in humanoid aliens. #Quote by Thomm Quackenbush
