Never be ashamed of knowledge. It's power, y'know.

Technobabble is hard to trace to a specific episode... let me try "Drone" and "The Kir'Shara".

Okay, let's try "The Nth Degree" and "Emissary". If not, I'd say it's hint time.

Okay. The following line is:

Oh! Star Trek IV, the transparent aluminum scene. I remember that second line well because it's always sounded odd to me. Normally "beyond the wildest dreams of..." is followed by who's doing the dreaming, or at least what they're dreaming about, not the emotion the dreams are motivated by.

I'm surprised nobody got that. I've stayed away from the movies so far because it's more common to watch them multiple times than any individual episode.

Here's my next: "I just want you to know that I have the utmost respect for the law."

Riker in Time's Arrow Part II, just before he decks the 19th-Century cop.

(I wanted to go with Rivals for that dreams of avarice one, but I think that may have been from the fiver, not the actual episode)

This one's two lines, since either one could probably turn up in just about any conversation.

"You're back early."
"He made me leave."

"Progress" from DS9 S1?

And yes, that avarice line is used in the "Rivals" fiver, which was by... oh, I see. I see. Well played.

Yeah, that's the only reason I made the connection.

Also, incorrect. DS9 hadn't made it to afternoon syndication yet (gawd, I'm old).

Also, somebody leaving isn't a major part of the plot.

Yes, but it was still a bit sneaky to say you thought it was in the fiver. Now that we're on the subject, this is making me think someone should start a similar thread in 5M.net Talk for fiver quotes... though with a "not from your own" proviso.

Hmm. That makes it TOS, TNG, or early VOY (but probably not the latter, which wasn't in any kind of syndication yet). Let's try "Ethics" and "Hide and Q".

Plus I don't watch VOY - well, OK, I watched the first season, but not enough to memorise it.

You're getting closer - one of the guest stars in Ethics was one of the speakers, and he made his first appearance in this episode.

Ah... that sounds like Alexander, and depending whether you mean the character or the actor, it's either "Reunion" or "New Ground". Fortunately, I have two guesses.

Character, so Reunion. I wasn't really aware there were multiple Alexanders, since they were all so whiny and annoying.

The full scene:
K'ehylar (like hell I'm going to try and spell like): You're back early
Alexander: (whiny, about Worf) He made me leave.
K: Then you should go to your room and play.
Worf: He knows nothing of our ways.
K: Our ways? You mean Klingon ways.
W: He *is* Klingon!
K: He is also my son, and I am half-human.

Why I can remember that and not anything useful, I have no idea. I think ITV got stuck on a 4th-season loop for a while.

Ahh. For the record, Alexander has been played by four different actors: Jon-Paul Steuer ("Reunion"), Brian Bonsall (the rest of TNG -- this is the one most people would picture first), Marc Worden (those dumb DS9 appearances), and frequent Trek guest star James Sloyan ("No, really. That's impossible. You're like fifty.") This happens all the time with child characters, and in fact VOY's Naomi Wildman has the exact same tally: three actors for different stages of growth and one more for an alternate future.

ENT:
Trip to Malcolm in "Future Tense."
Trip to Malcolm in "Future Tense."
Malcolm to Trip in "Future Tense."

one of my favorite eps. (plus it's "an" herbivore)

Heh, shoulda known that would be a freebie for you, evay. (And personally, I've always voiced the H in "herbivore"... though not in "herb", now that I think about it.)

Yours is a classic Garak line, but I can't place the episode. I'll see if someone knows for sure before guessing.

The Die Is Cast, where Garak and Worf head to the Gamma Quadrant to find some things, only the things Garak is looking for aren't the things he tells Worf he's looking for.

He keeps his lying skills honed by convincing Worf he wants to join Starfleet. Worf buys it until Garak suggests that with his skills experience he should be bumped up until he outranks Worf.

Ooooh. Sa'ar, right episode, wrong title. "The Die is Cast" involved Garak and Odo heading to the Gamma Quadrant to find some things, albeit in Romulan custody.

(Side note: I wonder how many people had a minor coronary thinking Garak was serious about joining Starfleet? I was okay with Nog going legit, but Rom was really pushing it.)

Consarn it! Well, I can't come up with it right now, so it's a freebie to anyone who can.

Can I please win simply by posting this?



If not, there is no good reason for Worf and Garak to be in the G.Q. except if they are about to be captured and held in a Dominion internment camp. So "In Purgatory's Shadow." I have no memory of why Garak was there, though it probably had something to do with his dad being in the camp, too.
