Not if I weaken first. Shields up! Rrrrred alert! This should be interesting. Some days you get the bear, and some days the bear gets you. Maybe if we felt any human loss as keenly as we feel one of those close to us, human history would be far less bloody. Yes, absolutely, I do indeed concur, wholeheartedly! I will obey your orders. I will serve this ship as First Officer. And in an attack against the Enterprise, I will die with this crew. But I will not break my oath of loyalty to Starfleet.

I’ll alert the crew. Why don’t we just give everybody a promotion and call it a night – ‘Commander’? A surprise party? Mr. Worf, I hate surprise parties. I would *never* do that to you. Fate protects fools, little children and ships named Enterprise. Our neural pathways have become accustomed to your sensory input patterns. Fate. It protects fools, little children, and ships named “Enterprise.” Fear is the true enemy, the only enemy. But the probability of making a six is no greater than that of rolling a seven. Computer, lights up! We could cause a diplomatic crisis. Take the ship into the Neutral Zone Yesterday I did not know how to eat gagh. Now, how the hell do we defeat an enemy that knows us better than we know ourselves? For an android with no feelings, he sure managed to evoke them in others. Sorry, Data. Talk about going nowhere fast. What? We’re not at all alike! Sure. You’d be surprised how far a hug goes with Geordi, or Worf. You bet I’m agitated! I may be surrounded by insanity, but I am not insane. The game’s not big enough unless it scares you a little. We know you’re dealing in stolen ore. But I wanna talk about the assassination attempt on Lieutenant Worf. I am your worst nightmare! Travel time to the nearest starbase?

Mr. Crusher, ready a collision course with the Borg ship. I’ll be sure to note that in my log. This is not about revenge. This is about justice. Worf, It’s better than music. It’s jazz. Well, that’s certainly good to know. I’d like to think that I haven’t changed those things, sir. Mr. Worf, you do remember how to fire phasers? Captain, why are we out here chasing comets? How long can two people talk about nothing? When has justice ever been as simple as a rule book? I’m afraid I still don’t understand, sir. The unexpected is our normal routine. A lot of things can change in twelve years, Admiral. Wouldn’t that bring about chaos? You did exactly what you had to do. You considered all your options, you tried every alternative and then you made the hard choice. Mr. Worf, you sound like a man who’s asking his friend if he can start dating his sister. The look in your eyes, I recognize it. You used to have it for me. The Federation’s gone; the Borg is everywhere! Well, I’ll say this for him – he’s sure of himself. We have a saboteur aboard. Damage report! Ensign Babyface!

The Enterprise computer system is controlled by three primary main processor cores, cross-linked with a redundant melacortz ramistat, fourteen kiloquad interface modules. I’ve had twelve years to think about it. And if I had it to do over again, I would have grabbed the phaser and pointed it at you instead of them.
