Right! You've had it easy for a while, but I'm in a MEAN mood tonight, so no more Mr. Nice Guy. . .
Yes, it's time for all you young folk to test your mettle on some Classic Trek! Over in alt.binaries.startrek some sad git has been posting vidcaps from all the episodes, and I've earmarked a few for future use. Here come five (well, four and one other) of the best.
Kirk: "God! Do you ever need a breath mint!"
------------------ Lyta Vorlon: "Our great mistake. Our failing. And now your failing. The error is compounded." Delenn: "What mistake?" Lyta Vorlon: "The first one, the one from which all mistakes proceed: The error of Pride..."
Kirk: Wow... you must be brushing regularly... Gorn: I've be~een usi~ing Cowl~gete To~tal Kirk: Look at those nice fangs. Very good. Gorn: U~h Huu~uh Kirk: And no gingivitis... Gorn: I've be~een usi~ing Cowl~gete To~tal Kirk: [OC] Suzy.. come have a look at this... [to Gorn] You must take good care of these... Gorn: I've be~een usi~ing Cowl~gete To~tal Kirk: Have I told you about Colgate Total?

------------------ "Breen. Try saying it. Bre-een. Rolls nicely off the tongue, doesn't it?"
Kirk: No no Sssarr your stamping on my feet... Sssarr: but I can not dance if i do not watch your feet.
------------------ With the first link, a chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably." Capt. Jean-Luc Picard - The Drumhead
At this point Kirk wishes the Metrons hadn't given him a male Gorn he had to fight...rather he wants a female Gorn he can simply seduce...and use his "have sex with the female alien" diplomatic skills.
Then again...looking at the Gorn, maybe he doesn't.
