Memorable quotes

  • “Susan, is there something wrong with the helm?”
    “The navigation system is on line, but its the ship has a mind of her own.”
    Jenna Carson and Susan Cassoday
  • I did say I loved your emerald green eyes. I figured these would accent them.
    Patrick Ingrum, presenting his wife a birthday present.
  • That's one hell of an infection. It's corrupted just about every subroutine. I'm afraid we're going to have to utilize the final option.
    Final option?
    We'll have to wipe the computer core and rebuild it from scratch.
    Patrick Ingrum and Jenna Carson, on Ottawa's main computer.
  • I have every reason to believe that Starfleet has been compromised. We discovered a virus aboard Ottawa that allowed the crew of a warbug to take over her systems. Sound familiar?
    Patrick Ingrum, to Andrea Riffin
  • Don't worry, I'm sure he'll get Ottawa up and running, take back Nimitz, and still have enough time to change the baby's diapers.
    Bridget Ingrum, on her husband
  • Jenna wants to check out the rebuilt systems. How does a trek to Aloran IV and an outdoor cookout sound?
    Bridget Ingrum, suggesting a birthday party plan to her husband
  • If we're going to fire on Nimitz, I may as well be the one to do it.
    Andrea Riffin
