some of my favorite quotes from:TNG
Q: You judge yourselves against the pitiful adversaries you've encountered so far - the Romulans, the Klingons. They're nothing compared to what's waiting. Picard - you are about to move into areas of the galaxy containing wonders more incredible than you can possibly imagine - and terrors to freeze your soul.
Capt. Picard: I understand what you've done here, Q. But I think the lesson could have been learned without the loss of 18 members of my crew.
Q: If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid.
(Line Admiral David Metlesits, United Earth First Fleet, to his daughter, Chief Petty Officer Suliko Metlesits, Starfleet)
Our strength,and our pride.
Only Gaia may know why,
Still we will get by...."
As well as the death of creator Gene Roddenberry.
And in my universe, there was no NX-01.
