Ransom: Boimler, your record is spotless. It's freaky.
Boimler: Thank you, sir. There is more on the bat.
Ransom: On the other hand, Mariner is the captain's daughter.
Mariner: Hm, sort of stuck between a rock and a kiss-ass place, aren't we, sir?

Freeman: How much contraband have you hidden on my ship?
Mariner: I don't know. A lot.

Mariner: Look at Brad Boimler being cool for once! Wait, is this because of my teachings?
Boimler: Okay, you don't teach. You just instigate chaos.
Mariner: Exactly! Helpful, character-building chaos.

Mariner: Maybe I should apply to the Sacramento.
Boimler: I don't know. They might be looking for someone a little less criminally insubordinate.

Ransom: We're out of options!
Freeman: Then I need someone to make me some.
Mariner: Me? What am I supposed to do? I don't know these guys!
Freeman: Do what you do best. I need a dangerous, half-baked solution that breaks Starfleet codes and totally pisses me off. That's an order.

Badgey: Can I teach you a lesson?
Rutherford: Badgey! I need you to code a virus for me.
Badgey: To do that, I would need you to disable safety protocols.
Rutherford: Wait, you're not going to try to kill me again, are you?
Badgey: Haha, I'm BADGEY!

Freeman: I can't believe you all started reworshipping the dang computer!
Betan: Well, Landru is very persuasive.
Landru: Consume the intruders! Obey Landru!
Freeman: Hey! Don't make me paradox you into destroying yourself.
Landru: Landru apologizes!

Freeman: Nothing against second contact missions but the Cerritos should be popping in on those legacy civilizations BEFORE they unravel.
Ransom: Yeah, but popping in is against regulation. We would need specific orders.
Freeman: I just hate seeing a perfectly good society get destroyed by a Gamester of Triskelion and/or whatever because Starfleet has a policy of SOME intervention.

Freeman: Why did we ever keep this a secret in the first place?
Mariner: I just wanted to fly under the radar.
Freeman: And I didn't want anyone to know the most demerited officer in the fleet was my daughter.

You think your mom would be okay with me and Shaxs making a little love connection? I'd love to smack that Bajoran beefstick with my coital hooks.


Well, that's Starfleet. Good at observing and bad at maintaining.


Freeman: I can't even begin to imagine how I'm going to replace [Shaxs]
Mariner: Well, wherever he is, I'm sure he's full-throat screaming in someone's face and ejecting a warp core.
Freeman: I'd like to think you're right.

Star Trek: Lower Decks Quotes

Boimler: Romulan whiskey is against regulations!
Mariner: Yeah, because it's awesome.
