The Best Insults from Star Trek

List RulesVote up the sassiest lines and best burns from the entire Star Trek franchise.

Star Trek has been an institution of science-fiction in the world since it first debuted back in the late 1960s. In more than 50 years of broadcast across seven television series and 10 filmsStar Trek has had its fair share of amazing, and funny, insults thrown about from one character to another. You probably don't think about it often when you consider Star Trek, but some characters had incredible one-liners and insults attributed to them—but which insulting lines are best?

For fans of the series, some of these will be pretty obvious while other quotes are less familiar. We could have included over a dozen excellent insults in Klingon, but wanted to keep them culturally familiar and in English, so you won't find any mentions of "Hab SoSlIj Quch!" here. What you will find are some of the best-written and cleverest insults spread about more than 50 years of amazing television and film.

Check out the list of funny lines below and be sure to vote up the most insulting quotes.

    It would be most interesting to impress your memory engrams on a computer, Doctor. The resulting torrential flood of illogic would be most entertaining.
