Quote of the Day

Scotty: Admiral.

Kirk: Mister Scott.

Scotty: Those departure orders, twelve hours, Starfleet cannot be serious.

Kirk: Why aren’t the Enterprise transporters operating, Mister Scott?

Scotty: A wee problem, sir, really. Just temporary. Admiral, we have just spent eighteen months redesigning and refitting the Enterprise. How in the name of hell do they expect to have her ready in twelve hours?

Kirk: Take me over, please.

(they board a travel pod)

Scotty: She needs more work, a shakedown.

Kirk: Mister Scott, there’s an alien object with unbelievable destructive power less than three days away from this planet… The only starship in interception range is the Enterprise. Ready, or not, she launches in twelve hours.

Scotty: The crew hasn’t had near enough transition time with all the new equipment. And the engines are not yet tested at warp power. And an untried captain.

Kirk: Two and a half years as chief of Starfleet Operations may have made me a stale but I wouldn’t exactly consider myself… untried. They gave her back to me, Scotty.

Scotty: Gave her back, sir? I doubt it was that easy with Nogura.

Kirk: (in a Scottish accent) Yer right.

Scotty: Well, any man who could manage such a feat, I would’na dare disappoint. She’ll launch on time, sir, …and she’ll be ready.
