Quotes

Lieutenant Worf: Any classified weapons knowledge you share with your captors will be considered treason.

Lieutenant Worf: Indeed. 24 is the gateway to heroic salvation.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [before entering the medical facility at Starbase 515] Why do I get the distinct impression that you're acting like some kind of... escort?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: That woman! She would.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I had this one Nausicaan down in this, uh... somewhat devious joint lock, when, uh, unbeknownst to me, one of his chums drew his weapon and... impaled me through the back. Curious sensation, actually...

Wesley Crusher: Those Academy cadets can be extremely competitive.

Commander William T. Riker: But you have the practical experience, Wes.

Lt. Commander Data: Commander Riker is correct. While the information imparted to cadets at the Academy is unquestionably vital for prospective Starfleet officers, it nonetheless requires a significant period of supplementary systems training and situational disciplines.

Commander William T. Riker: Didn't I just say that?

Lt. Commander Data: Yes, sir. But not quite as perspicuously.

[Picard prepares to leave for Starbase 515 without giving a reason for his journey]

Commander William T. Riker: Forgive my saying so, sir, but you're being rather enigmatic.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Consider it Captain's privilege.

Commander William T. Riker: As First Officer, I have complete security clearance.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: This has nothing to do with ship's business, Number One. Suffice it to say, it is strictly a matter of... 'image'.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: There's no greater challenge than the study of philosophy.

Wesley Crusher: But William James won't be on my Starfleet exams.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The important things never will be. Anyone can be trained in the mechanics of piloting a starship.

Wesley Crusher: And Starfleet Academy...

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Takes more. Open your mind to the past - art, history, philosophy. And all this may mean something.
