Description

The selections in Quotable Star Trek run the gamut of era and subject and are divided into 32 sections. In chapters such as The Human Condition, Life and Death, Peace and War, Freedom, and Personal Favorites, you'll find hundreds of memorable maxims from all incarnations of Trek: the original series, TNG, DS9, Voyager, and all the movies--but the one quote you won't find is, "Beam me up, Scotty." After browsing a page or two, you may be surprised at how evocative a few words can be: "There is something to be learned when you're not in control of every situation." --Counselor Deanna Troi to Riker "Men do not roar. Women roar. Then they hurl heavy objects. And claw at you." "What does the man do?" "He reads love poetry. He ducks a lot." --Worf and Wesley, on Klingon mating rituals "I've found that nothing keeps me alert quite like a healthy fear of death." --Sisko to Weyoun "I have a sense of humor. On the Enterprise, I was considered to be quite amusing." "That must've been one dull ship." "That is a joke. I get it. It is not funny, but I get it." --Worf and Dax "What do you call those?" "I call them ears." "Are you trying to be funny?" "Never." --Flavius and Spock "She brought me closer to humanity than I ever thought possible. And for a time, I was tempted by her offer." "How long a time?" "Zero point six-eight seconds, sir. For an android, that is nearly an eternity." --Data and Picard, on the Borg queen "Look, I'm a doctor, not an escalator." --McCoy to Eleen, on needing help to get her up the mountain Author Jill Sherwin has culled a winning collection that preserves the best moments of countless episodes. Die-hard trekkers will love the depth and breadth of lore captured in Quotable Star Trek. Those of us who consider ourselves "just fans" will be surprised at how fun it is to peruse these Trek time capsules. --Jhana Bach -- From Amazon.com Amazon.com Review
