Were there any lines of dialogue in the new movie that offended you?

I was a little offended when Christopher Pike shouts "PUNCH IT"

Punch it?

That's what Han Solo says in star wars when he jumps to light speed in the millenium falcon

when you go to warp speed in star trek you say "ENGAGE"

I seriously hope they get that right next time in the next movie

Kirk never said "engage"...

what did he say in TOS when they went to warp speed?

What I'm saying is, nobody says "Punch it" when they go to warp speed in star trek

Punch it is a star wars saying, not a star trek saying


this is a star trek movie, not a star wars movie

Nothing "offended" me. There may have been a couple of things that made me groan or roll my eyes (like there are in several other Trek movies)...but the day I am OFFENDED by something said in a Star Trek movie is the day I put a bullet in my own head.

Good point Vger23...not offended at all by the dialog.  Pretty petty stuff to be started in a thread.

I think Janeway said 'engage'

Janeway said "Do it! Do it now!"

Oh, wait, that's Ahnold. Janeway just said "Do it."

Nothing offensive about that. He could've said "step on it" for all I care.

I find more offence in Nemesis, from start to finish that movie was an offence.

Punch it, Engage, Take us Out, those are all great lines to get things moving.

The silliest and lamest: Make it so
Why you ask? Because it always sounded like take your time, we're in no hurry, get around to it when you can...I mean really, what kind of order was that? Very weak.

If you are equating offended with "did not like that they did that" there are lots of things that offended me about the new movie.

New Kirk, New Spock, and New Enterprise to name a few. Those are just personal dislikes, offended is just the wrong word.

"punch it" is not a saying at all.

Yes it was uttered in Star Wars....once,but that doesnt make it a star wars catch phrase.

I've seen the same line used by fighter pilots.

And seriously.....it offended you???

How did it effect you on a personal level???

While it isn't technically a line, the Nokia product placement pissed me off.

I dont see why? it's not any worse than:(which comes from TVH)


Well I could see an argument for saying it was a bit worse then what we saw in TVH.

The product placement we saw in that film took place in the 80's...so it makes sence we would see something.

But in JJ's film it took place in the future, in a time when we shouldnt have seen such a thing.
