Being able to convey a lot in two words is pretty impressive, but know what’s even more impressive? Saying it all in one word.
1. “Fire.” – Contagion
You can hear the stress in the voice, making this split-second decision to destroy the blue ball probe.
2. “Conference.” – Q Who
He says this in an eerily calm voice, but you know the shit has hit the fan.
3. “Excellent.” – Ensigns of Command
Genuinely pleased receiving the good news from Geordi right before hearing the bad.
4. “Recommendations?” – Who Watches the Watchers
After a long sigh. The situation with the Mintakans is difficult to resolve, indeed.
5. “Absolutely.” – Captain’s Holiday
Forcing Vash to stay. Stern. Shows he cares about her.
6. “No!” – Sarek
This word kicks off the entire scene where he has to deal with Sarek’s powerful emotions.
7. “Tasha?” – Redemption, Part 2
A half-whisper upon seeing a ghost from the past.
8. “Dismissed.” – The First Duty
Wesley tries to say something in his defense, but Picard interrupts him by kicking him out of his office.
9. “Q.” – Tapestry
Surprise mixed with annoyance. Yep, he’s addressing Q.
10. “Yes.” – The Pegasus
Totally embarrassed about the whole Captain Picard Day thing.
