Thought I'd give someone else a chance to jump in, but nothing so far, so... let's try "Broken Bow" and "Fortunate Son".

Okay hint: Hoshi's second away mission after she screamed at those corpses in Fight or Flight....and I'm embarrassed to use this as a hint but this episode I believe features the first threeway scene in the illustrious decon chamber...this time with Hoshi, T'Pol, and Reed...

Ah, those hints were too big. "Sleeping Dogs". On the plus side, that threesome scene didn't have any actual activity -- the team was worn out from the away mission and we just saw them using the place like a sauna. Bad news for Phlox, good news for decency.

Next: "I'm trying to thread a needle with a sledgehammer!"

Oh ok..I thought it would be too big a hint if I just said the species was the Klingons..so I went with the threesome..I knoew there was no activity in that scene just said that to try to be cheeky ..

As for your quote..that sounds a lot like Trip..so ENT? Not sure the episode..feel like it's almost on the tip of my tongue....maybe that episode in season 4 where he transfers to Columbia and theyre trying to climb from one ship to the other before they explode or something..Divergence i think it was called?

Nope. Wrong series.

Nope, Trip's major quote about that tool was in "Borderland" (also S4), when he shouted "We're gettin' hammered down here!" at which point I paused my TiVo and had hysterical laughing spasms for nearly 10 minutes.

I'll reveal the answer tonight.

Sort of.

Well since no one else has responded can I just say it was Spock's Brain..as you posted the fiver for it the other night. ..And if you don't object can I post the next quote since I have several (I think) cool, memorable quotes I'm itching to try...This next one I'm sure we can all agree is one of the most profound, memorable, thought-provoking, soul-stirring quotes in all of Trek:

"What possible use could you make of my intestines?"


Enjoy

It sounds like someone is responding to a typically Klingon threat ("I'll rip out your intestines and wear them for a necklace!") with typically Vulcan or medical literalist dry humor. Probably not ENT. Maybe Holodoc to B'Elanna? McCoy on the outside? He could be quite snarky too.

I'm with evay on both counts (what it sounds like, and having no idea beyond that). Hint?

My hint is that it is a response to a statement by an aggressive Klingon-like species but not Klingons...it also involves a hostage situation. And one of the two series you guessed, evay, is correct. Hope this helps.

I had to Google it. I wouldn't have gotten that. Good one, though. I was right about the dry humor.

Thanks, I always liked it. You were right about a Klingon-like threat/ritual too. I'm gonna hold off for a bit to reveal the answer to see if Zeke or anyone else will try to guess.

Nope. Another hint..hopefully not too big: The hostage situation takes place on a ship belonging to the aggressive Klingon-ish species whose ship is adorned with various instruments/weapons used to get at said intestines..among other things

Well, the species has to be Hirogen. And the person saying that has to be either Tuvok or Seven.

Crap... I forget the title... is it "Hunters"?

*Puts on wig, starts chanting over a cauldron* Thread, arise! Arise!

So yeah, the quote was from Seven in "Hunters."

"What were you then?" "Younger, Captain. Much younger."
