From "Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Drumhead (#4.21)"
Admiral Nora Satie
Captain. May I tell you how I've spent the past four years? From planet to starbase to planet. I have no home. I live on starships and shuttlecraft. I haven't seen a family member in years. I have no friends. But I have a purpose. My father taught me from the time I was a little girl still clutching a blanket, that the United Federation of Planets is the most remarkable institution ever conceived. And it is my cause to make sure that this... extraordinary union be preserved.
