Just one, please (no ties or honourable mentions).

It's tough, but for me, in DS9's "Trials and Tribble-ations", I smiled when Worf, who had integrated into Federation society, firmly told Bashir and O'Brien that he would not be discussing the appearance of TOS-era Klingons.

"We do not discuss it with outsiders!"

Well, I guess that told Bashir and O-Brien, then.

I think it was the episode in Season 2 where Riker had to staff the Hathaway for war games. Riker enters Worf's quarters just as Worf is attaching the main mast of a model ship. But he presses too hard, the mast snaps, and his hand slams down, ruining the model on his desk.

Riker: I hope I'm not interrupting?

Worf opens the desk drawer, uses his arm to sweep all the model ship pieces into the drawer, and slams it shut.

Worf: Just finished.

Mine is also from "Peak Performance"...

Riker: You're outmanned, you're outgunned, you're out-equipped. What else have you got?

Worf: Guile.

One of my favorite Worf moments comes in the season one episode "Coming of Age."

Remmick: "You don't like me very much, do you?"

Worf: "Is it required, sir?"

From DS9's "Take Me out to the Holosuite"

Sisko: "Alright Niner's, lets hear some chatter!"

Kasidy: "Hey batter, batter, batter, batter!"

Leeta: "Hey batter, batter, batter, batter, batter, batter!"

Worf: "Death to the opposition!"

Great comments, everyone. I'd forgotten about some of those.

With some exceptions (e.g. Data), I don't feel the TNG crew developed a lot over 7 years. Did we really find out much about Riker, for instance? 

That said, there were some memorable moments, as the replies in this topic show.

You might want to digest Greg Kirkman's 19-page thread on revisiting TNG, Robbie. There's a lot of discussion there about the progression of characters.

Personally, I think TNG is an example of a network show that had an unusual amount character development over its years, an ensemble show that was quite happy to devote entire episodes to showcasing any single character.

I was recently thinking about just how radically different a show TNG became when compared to the show it started out as. The characters are almost completely different! Lots of growth, change, and fine-tuning as things went along.

The prune juice bit is my second-place choice. It’s hard to decide which moments Michael Dorn plays better—low-key bemusement/sarcasm, righteous indignation, or threats/anger. 

I tend to lean toward the funny bits, because he plays them so well!

Bortus in The Orville has a similar disposition and
great lines!

Bill C. - For a complete tangent, in Greg Cox' novel "Planet X", where TNG crosses over with the X-Men, Wolverine hits Ten Forward asking Guinan for the roughest drink she has. She recommends Worf's favorite, but notes he's a Klingon, so it might be rather rough.

And as we all know, Wolverine needs no further provocation. And Guinan produces a mug of prune juice. Which Wolverine chugs, and comments, "Delicious" (or some such... my memory is kinda broken these days.) It's written hilariously.

Bill C. - I am minded to strongly disagree with you about the comparison of Worf and Bortus. 

Worf is a Klingon warrior, slightly high tempered, and chief of security to his combative nature.

Bortus is calm, cool, rational, easily capable of being third in command, and he isn't a combat monster, nor has he anything to do with security (although apparently he would be effective at both.) I see him more as Data than Worf. But of course, he is far more his own unique character.

I can see what Bill means. The humour is mined in a similar way between Worf and Bortus, stemming from the incongruity between the sober, no-nonsense disposition and the frivolity of the situation.

Race and occupation doesn't come into it; such things don't determine the character's personality.

The Worf/Bortus humour comparison comes from his dead
pan delivery and `stick up his arse` disposition.
Surely Isaac is the Data analogue?

Bill - let's not push the analogy too far. There are obvious surface similarities between characters on TNG and the Orville. If we look a little deeper though, characteristics don't quite seem such a match... and in the final analysis, I believe that the Orville's crew really are their own individuals. I feel such a comparison might produce the same results as comparing Dr. McCoy and Dr. Crusher.

To your match up... notwithstanding that Isaac and Data are mechanical life forms, I see very little in common. I don't believe Isaac has enhanced strength, as an obvious element of difference.
