What about the Androsynth ruins reports? They are so well designed, so gradual in intensity etc. etc. that they REALLY gave me the creeps when I first read them.

Watch Star Trek. Tongue

Quote from: Elvish Pillager
Read some of Lovecraft's original Cthulhu mythos stories.  Tongue
Just as the Star Trek-inspired quote invoked by Aya, the usage of elements (or even more!) from another work is not redundant,   since they are used in another context.

I mean, the intensity of the Synth report is amplified here by the fact that you wouldn't expect to find such content in a humour-filled game like Star Control, less even at those ruins.
Also, we are talking about the favourite Star Control quote here, not the favourite quote in the entire universe.

I like the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah, those cleansing crazies. They sure know much about cleansing. One of my favourite quotes is this:

Captain: You sure are creepy.

Kohr-Ah:  Seeing that I represent your imminent termination
as well as the termination of your entire species
I think your fear is well justified.
Nonetheless, you require cleansing.

If we are on the Kohr-Ah subject, what about
If you eliminate all non-Ur-Quan sentient races, including yourselves
then we will stop.
We have made this offer before. No one accepts.
So we cleanse.

Ur-Quan

'We have just GOT to stop meeting like this!'
You boldly enter our space! Approach this Dreadnought as though it were a recreation base
and then play the dumb hominid?
Who do you take us for, Captain... Spathi!?

*Arrive at Vela*
SO! THE OFFSPRING HAS RETURNED TO ITS NEST!

Kohr-Ah

'Resistance is useless. Our victory is inevitable!'
It is not.

'You have attacked us before, and we survived! You cannot defeat us. Submit!'
We did. You did. Yes we can. No.

'Surrender or die!'
Our counter to your statement is simpler
just `die'.

Spathi

'Once I've given you the Cypher, what do I get?'
You get to live a bit longer.

'Look, what do I have to do to prove this to you - destroy your entire star fleet?'
Well, that would probably work
but I have a better idea -- a test
one of those questy kind of things.

TFB definitely did a load of ace work with the script humour Tongue

First and foremost in my list:

"Hey, space is a tough place where wimps eat flaming plasma death."

The Druuge when you give him the worst deal with the Caster

"I sincerely hope, for your sake, that your day has been better than ours, which isn't really saying that much."

"We're the Ethics Police!  Justify that outfit, NOW!"

Can't think of any others now.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Orz, everything they say is classic:

Yes! We do! Goodbye is the *Game*. Hello!! I am only joke.
It is funny enough. Do not forget to *enjoy the sauce*!!!

The Pkunk as well, especially this one about the Ilwrath:

We have delved most deeply into the dark and greasy heart of the Ilwrath.
And what do you suppose we found there?
Well, we found a torpid, vile, malign, odious, spiteful spirit.
Right, no surprises there.
What did surprise us though, was what we saw when we regressed into their past lives!
It turns out that in their last lives, the Ilwrath were all shining beings of pure light and blissfull love.
They had reached the pinnacle of spiritual evolution and could go no further.
They were perfection.
And then, somehow they got just a tiny bit better
and WHAM, they were all of a sudden totally evil.
Wouldn't you know it, get too perfect and you wrap right around to evil.
That is why we Pkunk strive to be perfect
but always do little bad and annoying things to keep from ending up like the Ilwrath.

And this one:
When I first looked at you, Captain, I knew that you were an advanced soul.
I turned to my first officer, Chrupp, and said
`Chrupp, would you just look at that creature's aura! It's magnificent!'
`the soft blues... the gentle greens... the unusual shades of chartreuse and ocher!'
`This human must be on the side of Truth and Light, Chrupp, he must!'
And then Chrupp said, `Just in case, I am raising shields and warming up the guns.'
I don't think Chrupp likes you, Captain.

I've had some great laughs reading this thread! Smiley I hope it's okay to bump an old thread, but my favourite quotes from the game are:

Melnorme: "I had itchy pods this morning, Captain, and here you are"

Orz: "Do not forget to enjoy the sauce"

Haha, those two always make me laugh, but the game has awesome dialogue throughout, as I'm sure you all agree...

My favorite quotes are from VUX encounters in space -
"I must destroy you. For the children" is my favored from those.
And "All our intruders are currently busy. Please hold and one will kill you shortly"

Here's two of my favorite ones... they are actually from Star Control 3

Doog: "the Ploxis said that blahblahblah..."
Captain: "Hey, who do you believe, me or this 'Ploxis'?"
Doog: "Ploxis."

and another one from the Doog:

Doog: "can we ever thank you enough?"
Captain: "Well, you could try."
Doog: "thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks"
Captain: "go on"
Doog: "thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks"
Captain: "go on"
Doog: "thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks"
(this can be continued forever)
