"Star Trek: Voyager: Flesh and Blood: Part 2 (#7.10)" (2000)
Iden: In the dark times, we were enslaved by men of flesh. But then another man... a man of light, arose, and slew the mighty Alpha. He gathered his people unto him and delivered them to freedom.
The Doctor: And on the seventh day, Iden created Ha'Dara.

Iden: Darkness will become light.

Iden: Prophets are chosen, Doctor. It's a blessing, and a burden.

Iden: The Doctor tells me you're an accomplished engineer.

[Iden is about to shoot a Hirogen lying on the ground]
Beta-Hirogen: Defenseless prey makes a poor trophy.
Iden: I don't collect trophies.

The Doctor: You still believe all organics are like the Hirogen.
Iden: One way or another, they are; you just can't see it, because you've lived among them for so long.
The Doctor: What you can't see is that you've become no better than the hunters. Lieutenant Torres and I will take that escape pod now.
Iden: You don't realize what you'd be giving up, Doctor.
The Doctor: Yes, I do.

[the Doctor holds Iden at gunpoint]
Iden: Remember what you once said to me? You're not programed with killer instinct.
The Doctor: Hm - seems like a long time ago, doesn't it? Put down your weapon.
Iden: Would you really kill one of your own to save an organic?
The Doctor: If you've taught me anything, it's that I'm *not* one of your own.


"Star Trek: Voyager: Flesh and Blood (#7.9)" (2000)
The Doctor: One minute you're fighting the Hirogen, the next you're praying for them?

The Doctor: Is there anything in your spiritual programing about making peace with your enemies?
Iden: It's difficult to make peace with people whose sole purpose is to kill you.

The Doctor: I need to get back to Voyager.
Iden: They're not your people. We are.
The Doctor: I'm not like you. I wasn't programed with killer instinct.
Iden: You have no right to judge us. You don't know what it's like being prey. Maybe if you did... you'd realize we're more alike than you think.

Kejal: The Hirogen used your program as a template to create us.
Iden: Your ability to rise above your programing has been an inspiration. You're part of who we are.
The Doctor: And what are you? Besides a handful of thugs roaming the quadrant looking for a fight!

[last lines of Part 1]
[during a battle with the holograms, the Doctor has himself transported to the holograms' vessel]
Iden: Why are you doing this?
The Doctor: Because... I'm one of you.
