Star Trek: First Contact Quotes

  • Lt. Cmdr. Data: [with his grafted flesh burned away] I imagine I look worse than I... feel.
    Lt. Cmdr. Data: I imagine I look worse than I... feel.


  • Capt. Jean-Luc Picard: Six years ago, they assimiated 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, I have a somewhat unique perspective on the Borg, and I know how to fight them. Now if you'll excuse me, I have work to do.


  • Lily Sloane: Borg? Sounds Swedish.


  • Borg Queen: We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.


  • Capt. Jean-Luc Picard: Let's just say Starfleet has every confidence with the Enterprise and her crew - they're just not sure about her Captain.

To do so would introduce "an unstable element to a critical situation."


  • Capt. Jean-Luc Picard: And he piled upon the whale's white hump, the sum of all the rage and hate felt by his whole race. If his chest had been a cannon, he would have shot his heart upon it.


  • Capt. Jean-Luc Picard: The line must be drawn here. This far, no farther.


  • Lt. Cmdr. Deanna Troi: Time line?! This is no time to argue about time! We don't have the time. What was I saying?

    Capt. Jean-Luc Picard: NO!!!
    Capt. Jean-Luc Picard: NO!


  • Cmdr. William Riker: We've finished our first sensor sweep of the Neutral Zone...
    Capt. Jean-Luc Picard: Oh, fascinating... 20 particles of space dust per cubic meter and a class 3 comet... Wow, this is certainly worthy of our attention...
    Cmdr. William Riker: Captain, why are we out here chasing comets?
    Capt. Jean-Luc Picard: Because Starfleet has every confidence in the Enterprise and its crew, they're just not sure about her captain...


  • Lily Sloane: Definitely not Swedish.


  • Lily Sloane: You broke your little ships.
