Trek Lines Phased into Our Memory Banks

To begin with, I am not a Trekkie.  I just happen to like Star Trek!

Captain Sisko?

      Let that be the Q


  into this post about Star Trek and the many adventures of the Star ship Enterprise!

Star Trek has been like a mirror reflecting back to us the viewer the accepted societal norms and cultural nuances for the past 45+ years.  As an admitted Star Trek observer, I have found many of their sayings having been burned into the memory banks of not only myself but many others as well.

In anticipation of the newest member of the Star Trek motion picture family Star Trek: Into Darkness, I would like to share a few of my favorite lines that have notably shaped our society for the past 45 years and beyond, after all these are the voyages of the Star Ship Enterprise…

   He’s dead Jim– McCoy

   The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.  Spock

    Make it so!  Picard


I’m given her all she’s got Captain!  Scotty

    Beam me up Scotty.  Kirk

     Perhaps today is a good day to die!  Worf

    Resistance is Futile, you will be Assimilated!  The Borg

“We’re going to stumble, make mistakes…

I’m sure more than a few before we find our footing.

But we’re going to learn from those mistakes.

That’s what being human is all about.”  Captain Archer

If you have something to say, say it.  Captain Sisko

Live Long and Prosper.  Vulcan




    1. Pleased to meet you as well, looking forward to following your blog! Star Trek never gets old or boring, it would be nice if a new series was in the works!


      1. Would it ever really have the same magic? Star Trek was unique sci fi, one where now, 40 some odd years later, things are being invented that were shown on the show. PCs in every cabin, medical scanners, laser surgery, portable/hands-free communication – does anyone in Hollywood today have such a broad imagination these days?


      2. Good point on the imagination and creativity! For me the show was about the adventure and the discovery of new worlds, now it seems like it is all about discovery and fighting what is discovered, the adventure has been lost.
