Star Trek Quotes

Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Star Trek Quotes from famous authors such as David Newman, Mark Goddard, Tom Hardy, Leven Rambin, Chris Pine. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!

People who go to concerts hear Beethoven’s symphonies hundreds of times, but ‘Star Trek’ is recorded, so it’s not played all the time.
David Newman
In our first season we had a 22 rating. Today Seinfeld, a hit show, gets a 15. Lost in Space actually had a bigger audience than Star Trek got at that time.
Mark Goddard
I think I had only been working nine months when I got ‘Star Trek,’ and it was huge. It was very overwhelming. So that opened my eyes a bit at an early age, kind of how not be frightened when walking into a responsibility of something like that.
Tom Hardy
I was like, ‘Whoa, I’m auditioning for ‘Hunger Games?’ That’s like my dream come true. That’s like a Trekkie auditioning for ‘Star Trek.’
Leven Rambin
It’s either ‘Saw’ made for $4 million or ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Star Trek,’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ et cetera being made for $150 million. So the $30 and $40 million films don’t get made unless they’re maybe ‘Ride Along.’ But I don’t really know why. I don’t get paid to know why.
Chris Pine
‘Star Trek’ posited a better future.
Robert Picardo
There was definitely a sense that ‘The Next Generation’ was the ‘Star Trek’ stepchild that nobody liked.
Ronald D. Moore
Some of the storytelling we did in ‘Battlestar Galactica,’ to graft that onto ‘Star Trek,’ it would have required changing the entire format of the show and, really, a different taste of the show.
Ronald D. Moore
I’m not so interested any more in how a great deal of science fiction goes. It goes into things like Star Wars and Star Trek which all go excellent in their own way.
Robert Sheckley
Doesn’t anybody ever want to talk about anything else besides ‘Star Trek?’ There were 79 episodes of the series; there were 55 different writers. I was only one of them.
David Gerrold
I’m a geek – I read fantasy novels, I play ‘World of Warcraft,’ I’m a massive gamer, I have ‘Star Trek’ outfits.
Robert Kazinsky
I’ve been a huge fan of virtually every incarnation and spin-off of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise (don’t get me started on ‘Voyager,’ though), but there’s something about the purity of the original series that really appeals to me.
Chris Roberson
As we divest ourselves of once familiar physical objects – digitize and dematerialize – we approach a ‘Star Trek’ future in which everything can be accessed from the fourth dimension with a few clicks or terse audibles.
James Wolcott
From being a little kid, I’ve always been interested in space. ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Close Encounters’ – not ‘Star Wars.’
Shaun Ryder
I worked as a stuntman on the ‘Star Trek’ TV series pilot.
Hal Needham
In my proudest moments, I think I had a real hand in the creative force of making ‘Star Trek.’ But most of the time, I don’t think about it.
William Shatner
Well, the whole history of Star Trek is the market demand.
George Takei
I used to love the ‘Star Trek’ movies, ‘Wrath of Khan’ and stuff like that. Loved those movies when I was a kid. And ‘Star Wars’ obviously was hands-down probably – I mean I had the sheets. I was a big fan of that.
Michael Ealy
My passion for ‘Star Trek’ is actually rooted in my love of television and the art of franchise and a premise designed to stick people together that have to figure out what to do.
Dan Harmon
I didn’t know anything about ‘Star Trek.’ I was doing theater a lot in those days, getting my life together. I didn’t watch television. So, to come in on it was a really amazing experience.
Mariette Hartley
In the movie ‘Star Trek 3: The Return of Spock,’ I’m a really bad Klingon, and I really enjoyed playing that – somebody who’s totally unscrupulous. It’s like he was not genetically equipped to feel compassion or sensitivity. Just outright evil without apology.
Christopher Lloyd
Spock is a huge mythical character that even people who aren’t ‘Star Trek’ fans like.
Mary Wiseman
There was a time that I did ‘Up,’ ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Land of the Lost,’ and I was working on ‘Lost,’ at the same time, and that was really hard.
Michael Giacchino
You can’t escape ‘Star Trek’ influence, especially characters you literally grew up with.
Tamlyn Tomita
I just feel so flattered, because the cosplayers really make sure every detail is there. I don’t think I’ve ever cosplayed a character before, but if I were to, I’d probably go as a Klingon from ‘Star Trek.’
Karen Gillan
I only went to one Star Trek convention and that was in the late ’80s. I hadn’t gone to a convention before that. It was quite amusing, with the people dressed up and all of that.
Persis Khambatta
It’s always the great thing about being involved in such a legacy series such as ‘Star Trek’ is you’ll always want to know more about the characters that you love.
Tamlyn Tomita
I was a big ‘Battlestar Galactica’ fan and ‘Star Trek’ fan. I grew up watching those.
Sam Heughan
I drank the Kool-Aid in terms of the grand ambitions for humankind being a multiplanet species, and I think that we all want to live in a Star Wars,’ Star Trek’ world where people are jumping in their spacecraft.
Jared Isaacman
I’d argue that in the last few decades in America, when people are asked what they hope the future will look like, they still turn to ‘Star Trek.’ They hope we put aside our differences and come together as humanity, that we rise above war, poverty, racism, and other problems that have beset us.
Ronald D. Moore
‘Star Trek’ never grabbed me. Every time I hear about Klingons, I think of those little lint balls that stick to your clothes in the dryer.
Regina Brett
‘Star Trek’ seems to be an appeal to our better nature, the side of ourselves that works toward peace and cooperation and understanding and knowledge and yearns to seek out knowledge rather than the side that wants to divide and control one another.
John Cho
Usually, with ‘Star Trek,’ you always trust the captain. The captains are always going to pull us through; the captain’s always going to win.
Justin Simien
I wanted to explore the Seventies idea of the ideal futuristic woman. So I watched cheesy films like ‘Weird Science’ and more dodgy things like ‘Star Trek,’ ‘Barbarella’ and ‘Logan’s Run.’
Matthew Williamson
I read a lot of fantasy and grew up on ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Star Trek.’ I loved going to Middle Earth. ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ was a huge influence.
Tony DiTerlizzi
Remember Star Trek? They’re on this huge ship and they’ve got all these people, right? But you only see them, maybe they go on some mission and one of them gets killed.
Josh Holloway
I was tired of writing for shows where there was always a shoot-out in the last act and somebody was killed. ‘Star Trek’ was formulated to change that.
Gene Roddenberry
I’m not real impressed with the Star Trek weaponry, I gotta be honest.
Jeri Ryan
As a card-carrying space nerd and NASA’s chief scientist, I love space movies, from ‘Star Trek’ to ‘Star Wars’ to my all-time favorite – ‘The Dish’, an Australian comedy that celebrates that first moment when Neil Armstrong stepped down onto the surface of our moon.
Ellen Stofan
What’s great about Vasquez Rocks is that they filmed several ‘Star Trek’ episodes there.
Mark Pellegrino
My earliest memories are of watching ‘Star Trek’ and ‘MASH’ while my parents barbecued chicken in the back yard. I was an American kid, through and through.
Mohsin Hamid
I’m waiting for them to come up with a ‘Star Trek’ thing so they can beam me from my house to the gigs and back.
Aaron Neville
Star Trek and sci-fi in general has always been a mirror to our society, obviously, and I think it is reminiscent of a lot of ideas.
Isa Briones
People think that being on Star Trek is career suicide, but it’s really just the opposite.
Brent Spiner
When I look back and think how fortunate I’ve been to work with some wonderful people and had some marvelous experiences, then I can look at ‘Star Trek’ and think it’s almost like the cream on the coffee. I don’t approach it as anything but a magnificent plus.
DeForest Kelley
I think Star Trek has been very double-edged for all of us – as actors, writers, directors.
Jonathan Frakes
The original ‘Star Trek’ is very much a product of the ’60s – the new frontier, optimism, the idea of bringing democracy to the galaxy. It’s still a timeless show, but it’s very much a show made in the 1960s.
Ronald D. Moore
I’m very grateful for the career that I’ve had. And I’m very grateful for the experiences that ‘Star Trek’ has afforded me, along with my past background.
DeForest Kelley
I am a classic ‘Star Trek’ fanatic.
Rachel Cohn
I spent years doing ‘Star Trek’ bits and things, and a lot of people loved it, a lot of people mocked it.
William Shatner
I have always been a fan of ‘Star Trek.’ I love Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future.
LeVar Burton
‘Star Trek’ fans totally accepted my sexual orientation. There are a great number of LGBT people across ‘Star Trek’ fandom. The show always appealed to people that were different – the geeks and the nerds, and the people who felt they were not quite a part of society, sometimes because they may have been gay or lesbian.
George Takei
When you’re a kid, ‘Star Trek’ is a slower burn. It’s funny, it’s entertaining, but it also has a maturity about it – which is its universal appeal, I think.
Benedict Cumberbatch
I went to see ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ and J.J. Abrams, who’s a friend of mine, made this film, and I went to see it at the premiere. Believe it or not, I was really blown away by the comic timing of it.
James Gray
I had a stereotype in my mind of what a ‘Star Trek’ fans is, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.
John Cho
Without Leonard Nimoy, there would have been no ‘Star Trek’ phenomenon. And without ‘Star Trek’… well, that’s a parallel universe most of us probably wouldn’t want to visit.
Steve Hockensmith
Which is good, in a way, because the danger in doing something like STAR TREK is that you end up in that pigeonhole and you’re doing that the rest of your life.
Colm Meaney
‘Star Trek’ is about acceptance, and the strength of the Starship Enterprise is that it embraces diversity in all its forms.
George Takei
Star Trek is perhaps the best thing that ever happened to me, in a career sense.
DeForest Kelley
Star Trek’ ushered in the end of the Westerns. Then the canvas switched to the sci-fi canvas.
John de Lancie
After ‘Star Trek,’ I was the commander on ‘Stargate Atlantis,’ the final season, and once my character had become a good commander, I was sorry that the show didn’t last beyond that.
Robert Picardo
Up until the time I was cast in ‘Star Trek,’ the roles were pretty shallow – thin, stereotyped, one-dimensional roles. I knew this character was a breakthrough role, certainly for me as an individual actor but also for the image of an Asian character: no accent, a member of the elite leadership team.
George Takei
What they told us about ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ when we first started was that we were guaranteed 26 episodes, so that was the longest job I’ve ever had. And that was basically it – we didn’t know what the premise of the show was going to be and we waited, week by week, to see a script.
Marina Sirtis
I really enjoy playing villains, whether they’re realistic like Switchblade Sam or whether they’re a bit more over-the-top like Kruge in ‘Star Trek III’ or Judge Doom in ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit.’ It’s sort of a license just to be as bad as the script allows you to be – you can just go for it and have fun.
Christopher Lloyd
I love the fact that it’s not only about Star Trek, but about science fiction in general, and science.
Rene Auberjonois
Looking back now on our workload, I just shake my head at our pace. ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ was my first series, so I didn’t know anything about that when I started. I just assumed it was normal to make 26 episodes a year on a seven-day shooting schedule.
Ronald D. Moore
Nobody could have imagined the phenomenon that ‘Star Trek’ became. It’s still almost impossible to imagine.
William Shatner
It’s ‘Star Trek!’ It’s as close to an American mythology as we get. To be a part of that storytelling after being a fan since I was a teenage boy who saw the pilot episode of ‘Next Generation’ air, it’s all very surreal.
Wilson Cruz
It is important to the typical ‘Star Trek’ fan that there is a tomorrow. They pretty much share the ‘Star Trek’ philosophies about life: the fact that it is wrong to interfere in the evolvement of other peoples, that to be different is not necessarily to be wrong or ugly.
Gene Roddenberry
I am a nerd, but I don’t dive head-first into any fiefdom of nerdiness, except for maybe ‘Star Trek.’
James McAvoy
‘Star Trek’ is about a bunch of disparate people and what they’re capable of when they work together.
Chris Pine
I mean, every Star Trek episode you saw was just phenomenal.
Persis Khambatta
You play a hologram on ‘Star Trek,’ and you have to spew line after line. I spoke in paragraphs on ‘Star Trek.’
Robert Picardo
When I grew up, I saw the moon landing, and I was fascinated watching them as a child, and that’s what really turned me onto space and science fiction, and I started watching things like ‘Lost In Space,’ and that led me to ‘Star Trek,’ which was a major influence on my life.
Ronald D. Moore
This is my philosophy since ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Battlestar’: You have to be willing to have fandom hate what you’re doing or love it and not care either way on a certain level, because you cannot become a slave to their emotion or their vote. It’s not a democracy, as I’m always fond of saying.
Ronald D. Moore
I get called Harold the most. I think maybe ‘Harold & Kumar’ fans don’t know my name, and ‘Star Trek’ fans do know my name… Harold fans are vocal!
John Cho
It shouldn’t be so difficult to determine what a planet is. When you’re watching a science fiction show like ‘Star Trek’ and they show up at some object in space and turn on the viewfinder, the audience and the people in the show know immediately whether it’s a planet or a star or a comet or an asteroid.
Alan Stern
I’ve played four roles on ‘Star Trek.’ My favorite episode was ‘The Visitor’ on ‘Deep Space Nine.’
Tony Todd
I can’t deal with the ears in ‘Star Trek.’ I only saw the first ‘Star Wars’ movie, and I don’t think I saw an entire ‘Star Trek’ TV show, and I certainly didn’t see the movie. I like ‘Andy Griffith’ and ‘Deadwood.’
Clyde Edgerton
I know stuff about ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Star Wars,’ but ‘Star Trek,’ I don’t know.
Kunal Nayyar
After Star Trek, I was with the top agencies, but producers and directors did not know what to do with me.
Persis Khambatta
‘Star Trek’ tends to take itself a little too seriously. They were either very dramatic shows, or if we did a humorous show, it was always a little like, ‘Oh, we’re doing humor on ‘Star Trek,” especially on the original series.
Robert Picardo
Traditional economics is based on imaginary creatures sometimes referred to as ‘Homo economicus.’ I call them Econs for short. Econs are amazingly smart and are free of emotion, distraction or self-control problems. Think Mr. Spock from ‘Star Trek.’
Richard Thaler
We had some very distinguished fans: I know one chancellor of a major university who used to schedule his meetings around Star Trek. We were thrilled to discover that Frank Sinatra was a big fan.
Patrick Stewart
We’ve definitely talked about making a musical episode. We definitely need to make that happen. Let’s get Lin-Manuel Miranda on the phone. He’s a Star Trek’ fan, so I feel we can make this happen.
Isa Briones
I am often fond of saying the Trekkers are passionate about a hobby, their hobby is ‘Star Trek.’ They are by and large very imaginative, very intelligent people, and they certainly have been more than generous to me.
Kate Mulgrew
As I kid I watched ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Battlestar Galactica.’
Malik Yoba
I can enjoy ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Star Trek,’ but I really appreciate hard science fiction.
Kip Thorne
I don’t know if science and reason will ultimately help guide humanity to a better and more peaceful future, but I am certain that this belief is part of what keeps the ‘Star Trek’ fandom going.
Lawrence M. Krauss
I don’t consider it jumping ship. The ‘Star Trek’ philosophy is to embrace the diversity of the universe, and ‘Star Wars’ is part of that diversity. I also think ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Star Wars’ are related beyond both having the word ‘Star.’
George Takei
The ‘Star Trek’ future, to me, is where we are headed. Everything is automated, and we are free to pursue our dreams. We are free to pursue lives that aren’t about working and toiling away in dangerous jobs. For example, how many of us would love to be poets, or how many of us would love to be artists?
Gray Scott
I’m a massive Trekkie. I’ve got original artwork from the ’70s. I’ve got outfits. Yeah, I have actual ‘Star Trek’ outfits that I wear. I’m a massive, massive ‘Star Trek’ fan.
Robert Kazinsky
I get inspired when I look at Tom Lennon, who did ‘Reno 911!’ for six seasons while writing huge movies and directing and also doing other pilots; he did that FX pilot, the ‘Star Trek’ thing.
Scott Aukerman
I wasn’t a ‘Star Trek’ fan, yet I knew who all the characters were. that goes to show what an impact the show had not just in entertainment but in life. I knew who Chekhov was and I knew who Kirk and Spock were, although I probably had never seen the show.
Marina Sirtis
I really didn’t follow Star Trek.
John de Lancie
Diminutive worlds are more likely to be rocky, and lapped by oceans and atmospheres. In the vernacular of ‘Star Trek,’ these would be M-class planets: life-friendly oases where biology could begin and bumpy-faced Klingons might exist.
Seth Shostak
I’m still a ‘Star Trek’ fan. You never stop being one.
Mila Kunis
I appreciate both… for me, I think ‘Star Wars’ is more science fantasy and is based on a lot of great legendary heroes and morality plays and stuff. And ‘Star Trek’ is just pure fun. Pure science fun. And I’ve always appreciated both.
Ming-Na Wen
I watched a lot of American TV, all those repeats of ‘Star Trek,’ ‘Fantasy Island,’ ‘M*A*S*H,’ ‘Lost in Space.’ All that stuff was the fodder of my childhood.
Toby Stephens
I’m sort of in for a penny, in for a pound with Star Trek, It’s my life at this point. To deny it would just be foolish.
Jonathan Frakes
I’m enormously proud of the fact that Star Trek has really not just sparked an interest, but encouraged, a few generations of people to go into the sciences.
LeVar Burton
We’ve heard from many teachers that they used episodes of Star Trek and concepts of Star Trek in their science classrooms in order to engage the students.
Patrick Stewart
Aren’t we all ‘Star Trek’ fans? That’s the show that captured our imaginations after cartoons and everything!
Tamlyn Tomita
STAR TREK is a show that had a vision about a future that was positive.
George Takei
Almost everywhere in the world you go, people will come up and say, “Oh my God, you’re from ‘Star Trek.'”
John de Lancie
There were terrific shows on TV like ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea’ and ‘Wild Wild West.’ All us kids would watch them. We would act them out in the basement. I think I found that I could speak a bit more clearly when I was playing with other people.
Mark Rylance
There’s two tiers of science fiction: the McDonalds sci-fi like Star Trek, where they have an adventure and solve it before the last commercial, and there are books that once you’ve read, you never look at the world the same way again.
David Gerrold
I grew up watching ‘Star Trek.’ I love ‘Star Trek.’ ‘Star Trek’ made me want to see alien creatures, creatures from a far-distant world. But basically, I figured out that I could find those alien creatures right on Earth. And what I do is I study insects.
Michael Dickinson
Will Shatner, Jonathan Frakes of Star Trek have already put novels out.
Bruce Boxleitner
‘The Next Generation’ was a lot of fun for a while, and then it wasn’t a lot of fun. The reason it wasn’t a lot of fun was that this one was going to be a guaranteed hit. The original ‘Star Trek’ was never a guaranteed hit.
David Gerrold
The truth of the matter is, all of those guys on Star Trek: The Next Generation actually want to be me. These impersonations they do are just some way of trying to feel what it must be like to be me. And I understand that! Because it feels really good to be Patrick Stewart!
Patrick Stewart
The human race is a remarkable creature, one with great potential, and I hope that ‘Star Trek’ has helped to show us what we can be if we believe in ourselves and our abilities.
Gene Roddenberry
As you know, when Star Trek was canceled after the second season, it was the activism of the fans that revived it for a third season.
George Takei
I grew up on all the ‘Star Wars’ movies and ‘Star Trek’ and all that. I just haven’t really kept current.
Noah Wyle
I’m going down in history with Star Trek. It’s a great feeling.
Persis Khambatta
All of my definitions of family were heavily influenced by my ‘Star Trek’ experience.
Justin Lin
My father watched all the ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Star Wars’ that you could imagine, along with the martial arts. So I was into all that as a youngster, and I always rooted for the bad guy.
Rick Ross
Star Trek characters never go shopping.
Douglas Coupland
I would like – either as an actor, or producer or even director – to do something sci-fi or action-related. I like sci-fi, always have, ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Star Wars’ and all that stuff.
Queen Latifah
‘Star Trek’ is science fiction. ‘Star Wars’ is science fantasy. Based on the episodes I worked on, I think with ‘Star Wars: Clone Wars,’ we’re starting to see a merging, though. It does deal, philosophically, with some of the issues of the time, which is always something ‘Star Trek’ was known for.
George Takei
I’ve often reflected on this in the past weeks as I’ve been following the presidential campaign: Very often, I thought it would have been great for both of these guys to sit down and be force-fed a couple of dozen episodes of Star Trek.
Patrick Stewart
‘Star Trek’ is still my signature role because once you do a ‘Star Trek’ series, it’s never really out of the marketplace.
Robert Picardo
‘Star Trek’ is the McDonald’s of science fiction; it’s fast food storytelling. Every problem is like every other problem. They all get solved in an hour. Nobody ever gets hurt, and nobody needs to care. You give up an hour of your time, and you don’t really have to get involved. It’s all plastic.
David Gerrold
I get that a lot of people love ‘Star Wars’ – and I could see that you can love both and they can coexist in our lives. But the DNA of ‘Star Trek’ is different in as far as it’s human beings, it’s us in the future.
Justin Lin
Having grown up on ‘Star Trek,’ I’ve had one great dream since childhood, and that is to see my life end somewhere other than here on Earth.
Thomas P.M. Barnett
I was brought to Hollywood by Gene Roddenberry and Michael Eisner, chosen from 600 hopefuls to star in the original ‘Star Trek’ motion picture. The success of the film, coupled with the allure that I had shaved my head for the role, put a spotlight on me.
Persis Khambatta
The question always arose from both fans and friends was, ‘Have you ever done ‘Star Trek,’ and if not, would you want to?’ And the answer was always, ‘No, I haven’t, and yes, I would love to!’ So now, at the age of 57, I can finally say, ‘I’m in the new Star Trek!’ And I’m so excited about it!
Doug Jones
‘Star Trek’ still – I’m kind of intrigued by the way that the standard foods of various non-humans are sometimes portrayed as downright disgusting.
Ann Leckie
I was a big fan of ‘Star Trek.’ But then again, you know, ‘Star Trek’, ‘Star Wars’, ‘Doctor Who’, I wasn’t a big fan, but you know, when they ask you and they cast you and it drops in your lap, how can you say no to these franchises.
Deep Roy
It cannot be said often enough that science fiction as a genre is incredibly educational – and I’m speaking the written science fiction, not ‘Star Trek.’ Science fiction writers tend to fill their books if they’re clever with little bits of interesting stuff and real stuff.
Terry Pratchett
It wasn’t until the first season ended that I went to my first Star Trek convention. It was in Denver. There were two and a half thousand people there.
Patrick Stewart
One of my favorite things about ‘Star Trek’ wasn’t just the overt banter but the humor in that show about the relationships between the main characters and their reactions to the situations they would face; there was a lot of comedy in that show without ever breaking its reality.
J. J. Abrams
I’m a big ‘Star Trek’ fan.
Laurie Halse Anderson
I don’t think I’m the world’s most die-hard sci-fi fan, but I definitely grew up watching ‘Star Trek’ religiously – all of them: the original, ‘Next Generation,’ ‘Deep Space Nine,’ ‘Voyager.’ I think sci-fi has an important place in the cinema world. Fantasy is a big part of why films actually exist.
Olivia Thirlby
When I try to be funny, it always makes me more nervous that I’m trying too hard, and then my brain that already thinks too much jumps into hyper drive, and I light-speed start talking ‘Star Trek’ to someone who’s talking ‘Star Wars.’ Anyway, it doesn’t work out usually when I ‘try’ to be funny.
Coy Bowles
Well, you know, ‘Spaceballs’ is a weird combination, because it’s a simple, sweet little fairytale, and it’s crazy and out-there and making fun of and taking apart sci-fi, ‘Star Wars’, and ‘Star Trek’.
Mel Brooks
By all standards, except for ‘Star Trek’ standards, 98 episodes of any television show is a wildly successful run.
Scott Bakula
It still frightens me a little bit to think that so much of my life was totally devoted to Star Trek and almost nothing else.
Patrick Stewart
If you read my books, especially the Star Trek books and the Quest for Tomorrow books, you’ll see in them the core theme of the basic humanistic questions that Star Trek asked.
William Shatner
The organization that it takes to make a movie like ‘Star Trek’ is amazing, intimidating and fascinating.
Heather Langenkamp
I’ve never seen one Star Trek in my whole life.
Izabella Scorupco
Personally, I’m not into ‘Star Trek’ or physics or comic books, but I know I might be in the minority.
Simon Helberg
Growing up, one of the shows that the entire family ate dinner at the table was ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation.’ That was one of the greatest television shows ever, and then I’m a fan of ‘Firefly.’
Luke Macfarlane
I wasn’t an avid watcher of the original ‘Star Trek.’ But they’d pull out this thing to communicate without wires and you thought, ‘Yeah, right.’ Now… we’re doing that with cellphones. So I think our minds are more open to the unimaginable.
Penny Johnson Jerald
Why does everyone think the future is space helmets, silver foil, and talking like computers, like a bad episode of Star Trek?
Tracey Ullman
I started by looking everything up in a Star Trek dictionary so I knew what I was talking about, but you can’t do that because they talk in circles, and half of it doesn’t make sense, so you’ll just end up driving yourself more insane.
Jeri Ryan
What’s impressed me about ‘Star Trek’ fans is how many generations they span and how many nations they represent. They are all over the place.
John Cho
I’ve never actually seen a Star Trek, but I have seen an Alien movie.
Izabella Scorupco
I’m not a massive ‘Star Trek’ fan.
Margot Robbie
‘Star Trek’ works for me because it deals with the petty issues of humankind.
Genesis P-Orridge
I had never seen much of Star Trek, or any other science fiction, before I was cast. But Seven’s wonderful.
Jeri Ryan
‘Star Trek’ was an attempt to say humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in lifeforms.
Gene Roddenberry
There are several books that I have-the Physics of Star Trek, Star Trek and Business, there are manuals on command style and countless scholarly papers that have been written about the significance of Next Generation.
Patrick Stewart
I think anybody with any intelligence sits down and sees Star Trek not a kids’ show.
Nichelle Nichols
As a fan of the franchise, I count myself among the countless LGBTQ fans who have longed to see themselves and our relationships depicted on ‘Star Trek.’
Wilson Cruz
Of course, the young male demographic has always been the target demographic for ‘Star Trek,’ the men ageing fifteen to about twenty-five or thirty, a very tough market to appeal to.
Kate Mulgrew
I think the potential for man is so enormous, if we can stay alive long enough, we’re going to be seeing a lot of what Star Trek is projecting.
Brent Spiner
All I ever wanted to do when I was a kid was be in a Broadway musical and to be in ‘Star Trek,’ and I can finally say I’ve done that.
Wilson Cruz
‘Star Trek’ was inspiring to me.
Leroy Chiao
When Gene first contacted me for ‘Star Trek,’ he gave me the part of Spock to read! I’m glad I didn’t take it because I don’t think anyone could have played Spock better than Leonard Nimoy.
DeForest Kelley
It takes a certain kind of person who loves ‘Star Trek’ to bring it to life.
Wilson Cruz
I’ve been getting a lot of science fiction scripts which contained variations on my ‘Star Trek’ character and I’ve been turning them down. I strongly feel that the next role I do, I should not be wearing spandex.
Marina Sirtis
I was a huge fan of the original ‘Star Trek,’ and I’d never even dreamed that I would someday be captain of a starship.
Scott Bakula
When I came out to L. A., I got a part in an episode of ‘Star Trek: Voyager,’ and I hired an acting coach.
Sarah Silverman
‘Star Trek’ speaks to some basic human needs: that there is a tomorrow – it’s not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb; that the human race is improving; that we have things to be proud of as humans.
Gene Roddenberry
At the core of ‘Star Trek’ is Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future. So much of science-fiction is about a dystopian society with human civilization having crumbled. He had an affirmative, shining, positive view of the future.
George Takei
Even a small village in the middle of Africa with a 3D printer will have access to any good it can download. The world of the ‘Star Trek’ replicator is not far away.
Peter Diamandis
‘Star Trek’ scared me a lot more than ‘White Jazz.’ It terrified me, really. Because of the scale, the responsibility, the fact that it was this iconic character. It was the bigger challenge, so I had to take it.
Chris Pine
Between ‘Futurama’ and ‘Simpsons,’ I’m able to work with the voices of Michael Jackson, Dustin Hoffman, and the cast of ‘Star Trek.’ It’s great, you know; it’s great to work with such talented people.
Rich Moore
I got into writing to become a ‘Star Trek’ writer. I was a rabid fan. I had shelves and shelves and shelves of action figures in my bedroom that scared away more dates than I care to admit to.
Bryan Fuller
I once went to a ‘Star Trek’ convention by mistake – I thought I was going to a ‘Doctor Who’ one.
Sylvester McCoy
My mother fed my love of demons, science fiction, and paranormal. She was a devout horror movie fan who kept me up until the wee hours to watch ‘Outer Limits,’ ‘Night Gallery,’ ‘Twilight Zone,’ and ‘Star Trek.’ We lived to watch those reruns.
Sherrilyn Kenyon
That was the great, great thing about ‘Star Trek,’ that it was a show that people could tune into at all sorts of different levels.

‘Lost’ is an entity of its own. It’s still such a culture touchstone that I think it’ll be something people go back to for a long time, like ‘Star Trek.’ I’m just so amazed by the show’s popularity.
Sonya Walger
The thing about ‘Star Trek’ is that it is not judgmental. You can do what ever you want, within reason.
Marina Sirtis
The wonderful thing about ‘Star Trek’ is that they’re very open to suggestions for scripts and story ideas from the viewers. That’s really unique.
Carel Struycken
In the original ‘Star Trek’ TV series, space stations served as deep-space research laboratories, as well as rendezvous points where starships could dock before exploring the unknown. When we were envisioning our own space station, the applications were similar.
Victor J. Glover
Most visions of extraterrestrial life are actually steeped in human hubris. The fictional extraterrestrials of ‘Star Trek’ or a hundred other space operas are less alien than many of my neighbors. And funny, the ones running the place are mostly WASPish men.
Nathan Myhrvold
I’ve never watched an episode of ‘Star Trek.’ For real.
Steve Zahn
I’ve agreed to do several Star Trek conventions this coming year.
