From the new (and I should say fascinating) Star Trek film comes the following quotable quotes.
From Spock Prime (Leonard Nimoy) at the end of the film, the updated Star Trek mantra is as follows:
Space: the final frontier. These are the continuing voyages of the starship Enterprise. Her ongoing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life-forms and new civilizations; to boldly go where no one has gone before.
And from Scotty (played by actor Simon Pegg):
So, the Enterprise has had its maiden voyage, has it? She is one well endowed lady! I like to get my hands on her ample nacelles if you’ll pardon the engineering parlance
Bones: Don’t pander to me, kid. One tiny crack in the hull and our blood boils in thirteen seconds. Solar flare might crop up, cook us in our seats. And wait till you’re sitting pretty with a case of Andorian shingles, see if you’re so relaxed when your eyeballs bleed. Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence.
Kirk: I hate to break it to you, but Starfleet operates in space.
Bones: Yeah. Well, I got nowhere else to go. The ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce. All I’ve got left is my bones.
Finally, what would Spock and the Vulcans be without the Vulcan salute coupled with
Live long, and prosper
And some thoughts immediately after watching Star Trek:
2. Can’t wait for the DVD and Blu-ray to come out.
3. Can’t wait for a TV series.
4. Can’t wait for the sequel (as confirmed by this site, the major cast and crew are signed up for 2 more sequels. Yay!)
5. Can’t wait for more official books and comics.
