Star Trek: First Contact
Movie Quote Quiz

William Riker: Someone once said, "Don't try to be a great man. Just be a man, and let history make its own judgment."
Zefram Cochrane: That's rhetorical nonsense! Who said that?
William Riker: You did! Ten years from now.

Data: Believing oneself to be perfect is often the sign of a delusional mind.

Holographic doctor: According to Starfleet medical research, Borg implants can cause severe skin irritations. Perhaps you'd like an analgesic cream?

Picard: You want to destroy the ship and run away! You coward!
Worf: If you were any other man, I would kill you where you stand!

[Riker helps a drunk Deanna off the stool and over to a table.]
Deanna Troi: It's a primitive culture. I'm just trying to blend in.
William Riker: You're blended all right.

Picard: I'm about to commit a direction violation of our orders. Any who wish to object should do so now. It will be noted in my log.
Data: Captain, I think I speak for everyone here, sir, when I say...to hell with orders.

Worf: Assimilate this.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Picard, Worf and Hawk are outside the ship and want to separate the transmitter dish from the hull, Picard must move a kind of tube out of an console and must turn it from a low to a high position. In one shot the tube is in the high position, in the next shot it is in the low position and then Picard pulls it out and turns it in the high position. (01:06:40 - 01:10:35)

Trivia: The set that they use as sickbay on the Enterprise is the same set used as sickbay on Star Trek Voyager. In fact, the character of the holographic doctor is played by Robert Picardo, who starred as Voyager's holographic doc.

Question: One of the crew members tells Worf that the Borg control decks 26 to 11, and stopped when they reached deck 11. Picard says, "We can't get to deflector control or a shuttle craft." I did some research, and the main shuttle bay is on deck 6. So why can't they get to a shuttlecraft? Would this be a plot hole?

Answer: The borg took control of specific areas of the ship as part of their plan. This included deflector control and the shuttle bay.

My mistake. The main shuttle bay is around decks 5 and 6. The Borg didn't take control of those decks until after the beacon was destroyed.
