"Star Trek: First Contact" : Quotes


Locutus of Borg: I am Locutus of Borg. Resistance is futile.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The moment I have dreaded for nearly six years has finally arived. The Borg; our most lethal enemy, have begun an invasion of the Federation. . .and this time there may be no stopping them.
Commander William T. Riker: Your experience with The Borg makes you the perfect man to lead this fight.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Admiral Hayes disagrees.
Lieutenant Commander Data: Captain, I believe I speak for everyone here, sir, when I
say. . .to hell with our orders!
Commander William T. Riker: (referring to the Defiant) Tough little ship.
Lieutenant Commander Worf: Little?!
Lieutenant Commander Data: Population: approximately nine billion. . .all Borg.
Lily Sloane: You're going to regret this tommorrow.
Zephram Cochrane: One of the things you should have learned about me by now, is that I don't have regrets.
Lily Sloane: BULLSHIT!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: 39.1 degrees Celsius. . .like a Borg ship. They knew their ship was doomed. Our shields were down, somehow they transported over here without being detected. They'll assimilate the Enterprise and then. . .Earth.
Dr. Beverly Crusher: I swore I'd never use one of these. Computer, activate the E.M.H. program!
Emergency Medical Hologram: Please state the nature of the medical emergency.
Dr. Beverly Crusher: Twenty Borg are about to break through that door! We need time to get out of here. Create a diversion!
Emergency Medical Hologram: This isn't part of my program. I'm a doctor. . .not a doorstop.
Dr. Beverly Crusher: Well, do a dance, tell a story, I don't care! Just give us a few seconds!
(The Borg break in.)
Emergency Medical Hologram: (attempting to stall them) Uh. . .according to Starfleet medical research, Borg implants can cause severe skin irritations. Perhaps you'd like. . .an analgesic cream?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: You may encounter Enterprise crewmembers who've already been assimilated. Don't hesitate to fire. Believe me, you'll be doing them a favour.
Lieutenant Commander Data: Captain. . .I believe I am feeling. . .anxiety. It is an intriguing sensation. A most distracting--
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Data, I'm sure it's a fascinating experience, but, perhaps you should deactivate your emotion chip for now.
Lieutenant Commander Data: Good idea, sir. (Clicks it off) Done.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Data, there are times when I envy you.
The Borg Queen: I am the beginning, the end, the one who is many. I am The Borg.
Zephram Cochrane: And you people, you're all. . .astronauts. . .on some kind of star trek?
Nicky the Nose: Well, well. Look what the cat dragged in. What's shakin', Dix?
Dixon Hill/Captain Picard:
The usual, Nick; martinis and skirts!
Lily Sloane: (notices a Starfleet combadge on a dead Borg) Oh, my! Jean-Luc, it's one of your uniforms!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: (distractedly) Yes. . .this was Ensign Lynch. . .
Lily Sloane: Tough luck, huh?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf. . .do you remember your zero-G combat training?
Lieutenant Commander Worf: I remember it made me sick to my stomach. . .
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: How are you doing, Mr. Worf?
Lieutenant Commander Worf: Not well, sir. . .
Lieutenant Commander Worf: Assimilate this!
Lily Sloane: You son of a bitch.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: This really isn't the time!
Lily Sloane: Okay, I don't know jack about the 24th century, but everybody out there thinks that staying here and fighting The Borg is suicide! They're just afraid to come in here in say it!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The crew is accustomed to following my orders.
Lily Sloane: They're probably accustomed to your orders making sense!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: None of them understand The Borg as I do! No one does. No one can.
Lily Sloane: What is that supposed to mean?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Six years ago, they assimilated me into their collective. I had their cybernetic devices implanted throughout my body. I was linked to the hive mind. Every trace of individuality erased. I was one of them. So, you can imagine my dear that I have a somewhat unique perspective on The Borg and I know how to fight them. Now, if you will excuse me, I have work to do.
Lily Sloane: I am such an idiot. It's so simple. The Borg hurt you, and now you're going to hurt them back.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: In my century, we don't succumb to revenge. We have a more evolved sensibility.
Lily Sloane: Bullshit! I saw the look on your face when you shot those Borg on the holodeck. You were almost enjoying it!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: How dare you?
Lily Sloane: Oh, come on, Captain! You're not the first man to get a thrill from murdering someone! I see it all the time!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: GET OUT!
Lily Sloane: Or what?! You'll kill me?! Like you killed Ensign Lynch?!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: There was no way to save him.
Lily Sloane: You didn't even try! Where was your evolved sensibility then?!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I don't have time for this!
Lily Sloane: Oh, hey! I'm sorry! I didn't mean to interrupt your little quest. Captain Ahab has to hunt his whale. . .
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: What?
Lily Sloane: You do have books in the 24th century. . .?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: This is not about revenge. . .
Lily Sloane: Liar!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: This is about saving the future of humanity!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: NO! NOOOOOOOOO!! (smashes his phaser rifle into a glass case containing gold models of the Enterprise) I will not sacrifice the Enterprise. We've made too many compromises already. Too many retreats. They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I, will MAKE THEM PAY for what they've done!
Dr. Beverly Crusher: So much for the Enterprise-E.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: We barely knew her. . .
Dr. Beverly Crusher: Think they'll build another one?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Plenty of letters back in the alphabet.
The Borg Queen: Watch. . .your future's end.
Lieutenant Commander Data: Resistance is futile!
Vulcan Captain: Live long and prosper.
Lily Sloane: I envy you; the world you're going to.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I envy you; taking these first steps into a new frontier. I shall miss you, Lily. (kisses her softly)
Lieutenant Commander Data: Helm standing by.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Data, lay in a course for the 24th century. I suspect our future is there waiting for us.
Lieutenant Commander Data: Course laid in, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: (happily) Make it so. . .
