* "Come here, mum, everybody, come quick, come quick, ''[[Creator/WhoopiGoldberg there's a black lady on television and she ain't no maid!]]''" The sheer audacity of Roddenberry ''and'' NBC in putting a black woman at back center stage -- right behind the Captain's seat, where you couldn't miss her -- is one of the most awesome moments in television history.
** It's what got Goldberg into acting, Trek, and a role in TNG.

** Janice Lester gets one for recording the ''whole'' conversation above and effectively using it to sentence Scotty and [=McCoy=] to death for trying to mutiny against her, the "captain."

* And Creator/LeonardNimoy gets one for exposing Roddenerry's motives. He verified that Roddenberry ''did'' want to establish Starfleet as forbidding women captains, and that his goal was to show that a woman in command "would blow it." Because women are all crazy and hormonal.

* You do not talk about Moments of Awesome and not mention the Kirk/Khan fight.
** Except to note that Kirk finally defeats Khan by hitting him with a plastic toy hammer.

* T'Pring herself should get a mention for the scheme she pulled off. To recap: the original plan was for Stonn, her lover, to fight Spock. Easy enough. And then Spock beams down with Kirk and McCoy, and she changes her plan on the fly in a perfectly executed XanatosGambit.

-->'''T'Pring:''' If your Captain were victor, he would not want me, and so I would have Stonn. If you were victor, you would free me because I had dared to challenge, and again I would have Stonn. But if you did not free me, it would be the same. For you would be gone, and I would have your name and your property, and Stonn would still be there.

* Khan has taken over the ''Enterprise'', with Kirk held inside a decompression chamber, slowly getting deprived of oxygen. Khan demands that the crew bow down before him, but [[UndyingLoyalty the crew firmly refuses]], [[VillainousBreakdown leading Khan to shout "IT'S SO USELESS!"]]

* Even better, despite being weaker in physical strength, and despite a moment where [[ButtMonkey Chekov's]] Klingon NoSells his punches, the fight the ''Enterprise'' crew give the Klingons is pretty much ''equally-matched'' throughout.
