This bit from @Genkos Adea has totally not been taken out of context.

 

Also, thanks. I know can't shoot anyone a smile for risk of getting put here....

I'M DOUBLE THINKING EVERYTHING

I loved this from @Hiro Jones, a description of Osuna's reaction to Hiro's bit of science:

Quote

Hiro looked at the Lieutenant, expecting to see a puzzled expression. The one Osuna now wore WAS in fact puzzlement, but less "That is odd behavior," and more "Your hiccups sound weird."

@Addison MacKenzie gets the slow burn comedy award here.

Erbil: And [the Human race], Commander, has managed to overcome a violent and fractured past to be a standard-bearer for peaceful coexistence.

Her gaze shifted back to Erbil, wondering exactly where the line of questioning might be going.

MacKenzie: It would appear so…

 

I imagine she’s like, “Whelp darnit, if I smack him around now, I’ll make us look bad…”

This exchange, particularly @Talos Dakora's additions to it, made me laugh out loud.

Quote

As they passed through one set of armored, soundproof, EM radiation-shielded doors and closed it behind them, he began the auth procedure on the second, inner-most door. It was almost like an airlock, but instead of opening up to the vacuum of space, it opened up to...

A rather plain-looking rectangular conference room. A long, sim-wood trimmed table sat at the center, with an air-gapped computer terminal situated at one end that fed into small displays embedded at each position on the black transparent aluminum topped table. The walls were constructed out of an uninteresting grey paneling and were bare, save for a large screen on the wall opposite the door that was currently inactive with the Starfleet Intelligence Seal hanging static on the screen

Gabe's underwhelmed feelings came through loud and clear.

Osuna: You know, I’m glad you’re not as “cloak and dagger” as the reputation your division has earned – but you could do with a bit more, ya know, theatrics…

As he spoke, he folded his arms across his chest and leaned back against the wall, triggering a blaring alarm.

Alarm: BWWWAAAHHH!!!

Smirking Talos pointed at the wall panel. As boring as it looked, everything about the SCIF was state-of-the-art. Behind the walls were seven layers of sensor, acoustic, and even telepathic shielding, protecting what was discussed within these walls from interception by any method of electronic eavesdropping or telepathic snooping known to the Federation. The surface of the walls themself had a variable geometry molecular structure, Talos didn't pretend to understand the science behind it, but from what he understood the individual molecules within the wall panels re-arranged themselves in an algorithmic pattern that made them impenetrable by nanobots and other not-traditionally-corporeal alien species. 

He put on a faux perturbed expression.

Dakora: Don't touch the walls. They're alive and they don't like it. 

It was an oversimplification, but hey, it was theatrical.

This one from @Genkos Adea got a sensible chuckle out of me:

Quote

Genkos nodded; he didn’t know his nebulae from his gaseous anomalies. Not really anyway. He just knew that if Yogan kept scoffing that spicy centrepiece, they might have a gaseous anomaly of their very own.
