Well if I didn't know better, I'd say it was from "The Best of Both Worlds".


However, I'm pretty certain that particular line wasn't said in that episode. Likewise, I don't believe it's from Voyager -- although I'm not a big VOY fan, I have seen most of the Borg-related episodes, and that line isn't ringing a bell for me.

So by process of elimination, the only remaining possibility that I can think of would be DS9's "Emissary (Part 1)", where the Saratoga and the rest of the Federation fleet are engaging the Borg at Wolf 359. I've not seen that episode in a long while, but I do believe that line (or something like it) -- uttered by Picard/Locutus, of course -- is quoted at the beginning of the episode.

Very tricky Transwarp. I was thinking, it can't be from Best of Both Worlds, because I don't rememeber Locutus or the Borg saying "if you intervene we will destroy you", but I didn't know where it was from.

I didn't realize it was a DS9 Emissary.

Oh, wow. I wasn't sure if that was actually correct. Yes, it was an educated guess, but still only a guess!




Okay, here's the next one:

I think you will get me on this one this time martok. But i will give it a try. First i thought of the ds9 episode 'change of the heart', where worf couldn't leave dax back on that planet which had been infested by the jem hadar. But then i reread the quote and it said that not the one having been saved had actually been the injured, so i excluded that episode. Then i recalled the tng episode 'the measure of a man' where data was accused of not being human enough to make decisions on his own and i reminded myself of the short dialogue between riker and data in the visitors lounge and it seems quite likely to me that you quoted Data in this episode. But my guess may be wrong.

Nope, you got it right, Transwarp; it is from the TNG episode "The Measure of a Man". (And yes, it's from the conversation at the end between Data and Riker.) Well done! :D

Ok, here we go with the next quote:

"Well it's a new ship - but she's got the right name. Now you remember that, you hear?"

Think thats an easy one.

TNG "Encounter At Farpoint" (Part 1, I think).

Yeah, I could hear Admiral McCoy saying that line as soon as I read it. :)




Okay, here's the next quote. This one could be a little tougher, although hopefully not too much so:

"They are inquisitive. They'd like to know how you would endure."

Would that be Adimrial Quinn? The episode Conspiracy? The little slug like things in the back of the neck?

I just found a great quote. I guess I will have to wait till I win a round again. Hopefully I don't forget what it is. :)

Nope, sorry. Right series, though. :)



Another small hint: This quote was definitely said in a(n) amused/humorous context.

I think this ones from TNG; sounds to me like Cmdr. Riker is being studied by some 'beautiful'(?!) klingon ladies aboard the IKS pagh. Therefore

'A Matter of Honor'?
