'Star Trek' gag reel: Boldly going where no one has kept a straight face before

I’m not sure what I like more: The freeze-frame faces in the intro, or director J.J. Abrams’ wicked microphone drum skills. Which gag reel would you like to see? (Me, I’d love to track down Hunt for Red October‘s: “Some things in here don’t react well to bulls—!”)
