** The otherwise VERY serious BBC4 archaeology/history series ''Time Watch'' has used this meme. A scholarly argument between two university professors as to the dating, structure and purpose of a Roman coliseum in the [[OopNorth North of England]] was briefly described. the narrator said that the argument was so entrenched that it was hard to see which point of view was better. There was indeed only one way to find out... cue the two professors striding purposely at each other from opposite ends of the arena floor. [[note]]Who then shook hands and debated the question perfectly amicably.[[/note]]

* ''Memes/StarTrek''



* ''Franchise/StarTrek'':
** The famous line "BeamMeUpScotty" is never said in any of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' canon but quickly became associated with the show.[[labelnote:*]]The closest the franchise ever came to saying the line, was once in [[WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries the animated series]] where Kirk says "Beam us up, Scotty" in one episode, and then again in ''Film/{{Star Trek IV|The Voyage Home}}'' when in one scene, he says "Scotty, beam me up".[[/labelnote]]
** And this meme comes with extra mutation, since Scotty, the ''chief engineer,'' didn't do a heck of a lot of beaming people up. You'd think "beamer upper guy" was his job in life, but as an ''engineer,'' he was usually down in ''engineering'' making sure nothing exploded when [[ReadingsAreOffTheScale readings were off the scale]]. The mystery isn't why people forget where in the sentence his name appeared, but the fact that they remember it above and beyond his actual job ''and'' the guy whose job it ''actually'' was to be the beamer-upper guy. (Lt. Kyle, who didn't even merit a first name.)
** The deadliest thing in the universe is a RedShirt. [[labelnote:explanation]]Security and Engineering departments on the Enterprise wore red shirts. The security guys tended to be cannon fodder whenever an episode required somebody to die. It became a meme that wearing a red shirt meant guarenteed death. This one has become so universal that it [[TropeNamer named the trope]], although the original series had minor members of other departments die too, and shirt colors switched around in sequel series.[[/labelnote]]
** The Romulan "It's a FAAAAAAKE!" guy from ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' is pretty memetastic, and a source of [[{{Narm}} narmy]] goodness, as depicted in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXWQIiFxjbc this video]].
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lHgbbM9pu4 IT'S REEEEEEEEEEEEEAL!]]
*** ATTENTION BAJORAN WORKERS!
** "It's X, Jim, but not as we know it".
** "He's dead, Jim."
** Space...the final frontier...
** "Dammit, man/Jim! [[ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder I'm a doctor, not a meme!]]"
** Live long and prosper. And the V-sign that goes with it.
** "Da-da DA DA DA DA DA da-da DA DA..." [[labelnote:explanation]]Fight music, especially when Kirk and Spock fight on Vulcan when Spock goes into heat[[/labelnote]]
** From ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]'', let us state (rather loudly) for the record that {{THERE ARE FOUR LIGHTS}}!
** "I am [character name] of Borg." Followed by some character-appropriate variation on the phrase "You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile." The identification of the Borg with Microsoft was a common Web meme in the mid-1990s.
*** "I am Pentium of Borg. Accuracy is irrelevant. You will be approximated."
*** This is a Borg. This is drugs. This is a Borg on drugs: "Resilience is floor tile. Wanna be simulated?"
*** "I am Homer of Borg. Resistance is futile. Prepare to be ... [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny oooh, doughnuts]]."
** Memes are irrelevant.
** "To boldly X where no Y has X'ed... before!"
** [[http://wearuniform.ytmnd.com/ "You don't deserve to wear that uniform!"]][[labelnote:Explanation]]From the episode "The First Duty", when Picard gives Wesley a WhatTheHellHero when it's discovered he covered up how one of the latter's squadmates was killed.[[/labelnote]]
** "[[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign Au contraire, mon capitan!]] [[HesBack 'Eeees back!]]"[[labelnote:Explanation]]From the episode "Deja Q", when Q returns, repowered and backed by a ''mariachi band'', after the crew of the Enterprise think he performed a HeroicSacrifice[[/labelnote]]
** "Make it so."[[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Picard's catchphrases, letting someone know they should perform an action with his authority.[[/labelnote]]
** "Engage!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Another one, this time, telling the helm to move the ship into warp.[[/labelnote]]
** The Picard Song: "Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise..."
** "Mr. Worf? Fire." '''''TO BE CONTINUED...'''''[[labelnote:Explanation]]The very infamous last words from the TNG Season 3 finale "The Best of Both Worlds Part 1"[[/labelnote]]
** I canna do it Cap'n! I doon't have the power!
*** I CANNAE BREAK THE LAWS OF PHYSICS!
** [[BadassFingerSnap (Snaps fingers.)]] [[SignatureSoundEffect "WOOSH!"]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Q's main action for warping reality was to nonchalantly snap his fingers, often accompanied by a flash of white light and a trademark "woosh" sound.[[/labelnote]]
** "If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid." [[labelnote:explanation]]Q's speech towards Picard at the end of "Q Who"[[/labelnote]]
** Q got bored and decided to go troll ponies! [[labelnote:explanation]]Creator/JohnDeLancie plays both Q and Discord in WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic, causing fans of the latter series (and often fans of both shows) to make jokes about Discord and Q being one and the same.[[/labelnote]]
** [[Recap/StarTrekS3E1SpocksBrain "Brain and brain! WHAT IS BRAIN?"]]
** "That is illogical, Captain."
** A specific shot of Picard, arm extended and face contorted in poetic agony, from the episode "Menage a Troi" has become ''the'' "WTF IS THIS SHIT?" image.
** Similarly, [[https://youtu.be/x012BnKWi3g?t=59s Picard's Reaction to Q from the episode "Deja Q"]], has become the internet standard meme image for the Facepalm.
** "[[Series/StarTrekVoyager I'm afraid.]]" "[[Website/SFDebris I know...]]"
** [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Experience Bij!]]
** "There's coffee in that nebula!"[[labelnote:explanation]]Janeway's [[MustHaveCaffeine obsession with coffee]] is firmly established in "The Cloud," in which she orders the ship into a nebula to gain additional energy sources.[[/labelnote]]
