Quotes Edit

  • Kathryn Janeway: Captain's log, stardate 48623.5 - There are 246 elements known to Federation science. We believe we have just discovered the 247th, inside the ring system of a class D planet.


  • Harry Kim: You think they do have an afterlife? That the energy field is where they exist at a higher level of consciousness, just like they believe?
  • Kathryn Janeway: I'm not certain. But I am certain about this: what we don't know about death... is far, far greater than what we do know.


  • Kathryn Janeway: This may not make much sense to you now - a young man at the beginning of his career. But one of the things you learn as you move up the ranks and get a little older is that... you wish you had more time in your youth to really... absorb all the things that happen to you. It goes by so fast. It's so easy to become jaded, to treat the extraordinary like just another day at the office. But sometimes... there are experiences which transcend all that. You've just had one, Mr. Kim. And I want you to live with it for a little while. Write about it if you feel like it. Paint. Express yourself in some fashion. The bridge will still be there in two days.
