From ConNooga 2018:

Helm, after a very awkward maneuver and turning the wrong direction at least twice: "Captain, requesting permission to slap the pilot."
Captain: "You are the pilot!"
Helm: "Requesting permission to slap myself?"
Captain: "Permission granted!"
Helm: *pause* *smacks self across face*

Fighter: "I want to say this is like riding a bike but then I remember I can’t ride a bike."

Weapons: "Permission to cry, Captain!"
Captain: "No! You can cry over my dead body!"

Onlooker, watching a crew cosplaying as Voltron Paladins: "I can’t believe I watched you guys turn into heartless murderers!"

From Southern Fried Gameroom Expo, 2016:

Captain: "Science, where are there nukes?"
Science: "There are nukes everywhere, sir!"
Captain: "Helm, take us everywhere!"

Captain, somewhat inebriated: "We shall not stop until we NUKE the DRAGON!"

From DragonCon 2016:

Commodore Lawson, as GM, referring to an enemy Behemoth: "He surrendered, he turned yellow."
Captain, Richard Garriott (cosplaying as Lord British!): "Nuke him."
Crew: *laughter*
Weapons: "Um?"
Captain: "Fire the nuke."
Weapons: "Nuke is out!"
Audience member: "There is no surrender when Lord British is at the helm!"
Surrendered ship: *explodes!*

From a LAN party with some friends and my brother, running two allied bridges. Our bridge was captained by my friend Ben, the other by my brother.

Ben: We're gonna do a mine run.
Brother: Okay.
Ben: Okay, we're running now.
Brother: (realizing they'd just fired a nuke) Waitwaitwaitwait--

BOOM, we're dead.

Our crew beta-testing Artemis 2.7.1 in Siege Mode, not certain what new features Thom has added:

Comms: Captain, that ancient space dragon is hailing us!
Captain: Really? What does he say?
Comms: The ancient dragon says: "I'm getting to old for this sh!t!"
Captain: Weapons, load a tag! Lock onto that dragon!
Comms: The ancient dragon says: "D@mmit! And I was just one week from retirement!"

Unbeknownst to us, Kestr had logged into a Game Mater console and was sending fake Comms messages on behalf of the ancient dragon. But for a while our crew thought Thom had really added talking dragons!

From our past weekend:

During a mission with a very young player...
Captain: Fighter, launch!
Weapons: Sir, our fighter is off the ship; it's past his bedtime!

During a brief confusion of beverages:
Captain: Did anyone see a freshly-opened Coke anywhere?
Helm: Yes, sir, here you go! (Hands Captain a Coke.)
Comms: (intercepts Coke) Helm, why are giving the Captain my Coke? Sir, yours is on the pizza table... um, I'll fetch it!

-brand new player at the helm-

Captain: Helm, watch out for that mine.
Helm: I see it. I'm going to go up and over it.
Captain: You're gonna what?
Engineer: Everything's broken...Helm, you know how a mine works, right?

We arrive at the last base (the only one left after our extended engine repairs).
No shields.
Energy low. 
Enemy fleet in close to the base. 

Captain: Weapons, what have we got?
Weapons: I've got a nuke and some mines.
Captain: Go for the nuke. The base might survive.
Weapons: So it's medals or a court marshal then? Nuke's away.
Engineer: Engineer's log - I blame Helm.

Science: That Skaraan jumped at the last second. He came out unscathed.

Captain: How are we?

Engineer: We're totally scathed, sir.

Ship is on its way to a way point, helm just needs to steer around the map
Captain: Number One, you have the bridge, I've got to get a cookie.
Science: Aye, sir.

A few moments later....

Boom.

Helm steered into something while I was in the galley getting a piece of cookie cake.  It was an avoidable something.  It was a something that lay on the direct heading, the science officer told the helm not to take as she had computed a route around it.  But there it was.  And we all died.  Cookie just floating out of reach of my hand.

From Southern-Fried Gaming Expo 2018: 

From an experienced captain:

Comms: "Captain, DS 3 has been destroyed."
Captain: "No. That’s where we kept our Twinkies and Ding Dongs. Revenge will be ours!"

Later...

Comms: "Captain, are we going to die?"
Captain: "if we die, we die for the glory of fast food and snack cakes!"

At mission end:

Captain: "Take them out. We’ll send them a fruit basket. No, we’ll send them a candy basket to show them how they should have been living!"

From a relatively new crew:

Captain: Hard to starboard!
Comms: That’s to the right.

Captain: Avoid the rocks. 
Helm: Evasive rock maneuver sir.

Weapons: [after a hard-fought kill, very jubilantly] Yeah, we got him!

Fighter: [After mission completed.] ... and I won all my blackjack money back, if anyone cares. Drinks on me at the starbase bar!

From Dragon Con 2018:

Commodore Lawson, hearing "overheat condition": "I smell something cooking in Engineering."

Comms: "All the enemies are insulted!"
Captain: "Insult them more!"
Comms: "Insulting them more!"

Audience member: "Shields down when friends are around!"

Weapons: "Do we put shields up in the asteroid field?"
Commodore Thompson: "Do you trust your helmsman?"
Weapons: *beep* "Shields up!"

Comms: "C13 is surrender--*BOOM!*ing!"
Fighter who killed C13: "He surrendered really hard!"

Engineer, in fake Scottish accent: "Sir, the ship is purrin' like a kitten!"
Captain: "I'd rather it roared like a lion!"

Captain Billy: "Let’s go kill us some Torgoths!"
Weapons: "We haven’t killed any of those today."
Captain Billy: "Their poetry is almost as bad as the Vogons."
Commodore Lawson: "Reason enough to destroy them!"

Weird Al Yankovic cosplayer, as Captain: "Weapons, prepare to fight. Fighters, do not launch until AFTER the nuke this time. Engineering, prepare for heavy casualties again!..."
