Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987–1994)
Capt. Picard: Space... The final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. It's continuing mission, to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no one has gone before.
Lieutenant Worf: Mrs. Troi... I must protest your unauthorized presence on the bridge!
Lwaxana Troi: [pointing to tactical console] What does that little one do Mr. Woof?
Lieutenant Worf: Please Madame! That's is a torpedo launch initiator and it's - it is Worf madame, not Woof.
Admiral Anthony Haftel: Mister Data, I regret that I must order you to transport Lal over to my ship.
[Data rises to comply]
Capt. Picard: Belay that order, Commander.
Admiral Anthony Haftel: I beg your pardon.
Capt. Picard: I will take this matter to Starfleet myself.
Admiral Anthony Haftel: I am Starfleet, Captain. Proceed, Commander.
Capt. Picard: Hold your ground, Mister Data.
Admiral Anthony Haftel: Captain, you are jeopardising your command, and your career.
Capt. Picard: There are times Sir... when men of good conscience cannot blindly follow orders. You acknowledge they're sentience but ignore they're personal liberty and freedom. Order a man to turn his child over to the state? Not while I'm his Captain.
Capt. Picard: [recorded by an alternate Picard from six hours into the future] Captain's personal log... supplemental. I have just witnessed the total destruction of the USS Enterprise with a loss of all hands - save one... me.
Duras: [the fallen Klingons at Khitomer] Those deaths must be avenged.
Counselor Deanna Troi: [to Riker, when he would rather hunt for Picard's alleged killers than hold a memorial service for him] Do you think you're the only one in pain? That you have a monopoly on loss?
Counselor Deanna Troi: Well, I've got news for you. We're all hurting... we're all angry! And like it or not, you've got a responsibility to this crew! And you can't just indulge your personal desire for revenge!
