Tuvok: “Structure, logic, function, control. A structure cannot stand without a foundation. Logic is the foundation of function. Function is the essence of control. I-am-in-control. I am in control.”

Chakotay: “I can’t sacrifice the present waiting for a future that may never happen.”


Tuvok: “We often fear what we do not understand. Our best defense… is knowledge.”


Kathryn Janeway: “In a way, this child belongs to all of us. It is the first baby born on Voyager. I’m just not sure whether I should be welcoming it on board or apologizing… Voyager isn’t exactly anyone’s idea of a nursery and the Delta Quadrant isn’t much of a playground.”

The Doctor: “The more I think about it, the more I realise there’s nothing I could have done differently…the primordial atom burst, sending out its radiation, setting everything in motion. One particle collides with another, gases expand, planets contract and before you know it we’ve got starships and holodecks and chicken soup. In fact, you can’t help but have starships, holodecks and chicken soup – because it was all determined 20 billion years ago!”

Tuvok: [Entering] “There is a certain logic… to your logic.”

A Quote

Chakotay: “There’s a story I heard as a child, a parable… I never forgot it… A scorpion was walking along the bank of a river, wondering how to get to the other side… when suddenly he saw a fox. He asked the fox to take him on his back across the river. The fox said no… I’ll get halfway there, and you’ll sting me, and I’ll drown. But the scorpion assured him… if I did that, we’d both drown. The fox thought about it and finally agreed. So the scorpion climbed up on his back, and the fox began to swim… But halfway across the river, the scorpion stung the fox. As the poison filled his veins, the fox turned to the scorpion and said why did you do that? Now you’ll drown, too. I couldn’t help it, said the scorpion. It’s my nature.”
