ok as it's now my turn ;)

here's one of my favourite quotes in ST:

"With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censored, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably."

That, too, is from the TNG episode "The Drumhead". :)

Damn I have lost my touch. I was going to say The Drumhead, but I thought, naw, no way it will be twice in a row. LOL I am wrong again.

Looking forward to Martok. Going to bed soon, so I may miss out on it.

Sorry guys! I've been out & about today, so I wasn't able to get to my computer til now.


Anyway, here's the new quote:

"Who says there's never a Klingon around when you need one?"


I hope that one's not too hard or obscure!

This one has been taken from DS9 "Call to arms"

But I actually don't see the point of playing a game where you just enter the given quote on google and the computer tells you the right episode.

Wouldn't it be better to post randomly chosen short passages from episodes instead of real "quotes", just as Peter did:

Peter1981 posted:
'Trouble with the nebula, sir, is all that static discharge and gas clouds our tactical display. Visual won't function and shields will be useless.'
That would make it much more interesting and difficult.

But thats my view of it.

I didn't know you can use google. Well yeah I guess that would be cheating, but then who are you cheating?

I just like it, because of all the interesting quotes that Star Trek put out. Even if people cheat, we get to be reminded of old quotes.

You are right. What really counts is that by reminding ourselves of those great quotes we might appreciate Star Trek even more.

Ok, let's hope we can keep this goingfor a while

Correct!

Googling the quote takes out half the fun of it, though! :wink:
