Kirk has at least one son. (And given the way he gets around, probably a lot more children he doesn't know about.)

    Despite being a genetically engineered mad genius, the simple concepts of "up" and "down" don't occur to Khan when it comes to space battles.

      The countdown numbers on your computer screen bear no resemblance to the actual time you have left. In fact, sometimes the countdown will go UP just to screw with you.

        The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few-- or the one.

          Revenge is a dish that is best served cold... and it is very cold in space.

            Half-Vulcans, half-Romulans can apparently get into Starfleet in the 23rd century and no one will blink an eye, but someone who's 1/8th Romulan can get nearly drummed out of the service in the 24th. (ST: TNG-- "The Drumhead")

              Admittedly, the difference is that Crewman Simon Tarses didn't mention that fact on his Starfleet application. And the investigation in which that fact was revealed was a witch-hunt.

            Why is the Enterprise *always* the only ship in range? Didn't they just *leave* Earth?

              You know... unless the explosion of Ceti Alpha VI shifted Ceti Alpha V's orbit so badly that it knocked it beyond even Ceti Alpha VII (which we don't even know exists), the Reliant crew dropped the ball on this one. What, they can't start from the sun and count five planets out?

                Khan never forgets a face, including Chekov, whom he has never met before.

                  Next time you pick up a minor energy flux reading on one Dyno scanner in your search for a completely lifeless space body, do yourself a favor and move on to another planet.

                        Uhura does not appreciate the implication that she's getting old.

                          Even mind-altering slugs can be beaten with a strong will like Captain Terrell's.

                              McCoy is apparently not a Christian. But Scotty apparently is.

                                One of the few things that Spock and McCoy can agree on is that Kirk should be captaining a starship; doing anything else is just a complete waste of his time.

                                  The Reliant's crew has been searching the entire Alpha Quadrant for a planet that's completely lifeless, and has been having no success?! REALLY? In the 21st century we haven't found one apart from Earth that *has* life!

                                    In the novelization, it was mentioned that in addition to needing a lifeless planet, the planet had to meet certain criteria, such as being terrestrial, having its orbit fall within a habitable zone of the planet, and having a certain degree of mass. There were many different variables. Finding a planet that met *all* the criteria was difficult, and quite frustrating to the Reliant crew, who'd been searching out one for months.

                                  So, was the first part of Spock's coded message, in which he explains what code he's using-- "if we go by the book, hours may seem like days" not intercepted by Khan, but the rest of it was?

                                    Despite being stranded with only his own crew, Khan took the time to find out what Ceti Alphan ear slugs do to people.

                                      Scotty really let himself go.

                                        The genesis torpedo works great, despite actual distance of planet from a star, orbit, etc.

                                          Even though Vulcans usually don't have emotions, they can still be inclined to use expletives such as "damn."
