    There's always the threat of an attack by say, a giant space dragon, the kind that eats the sun once every thirty days. It's a nuisance, but what can you expect from reptiles.

To save our people, we must sacrifice our people, sacrifice ourselves, pride our vengeance, be willing to die by the thousands, by the millions. For one another. The more we fight for ourselves, the more we will lose ourselves. We are linked, Ta'Lon. Our fate is like an image caught in a mirror. If we deny the other, we deny ourselves. And we will cease to exist."

I would like to send that message to your homeworld, and a personal message; a testimony to the Shai Alyt."

    O/T - Speaking of quotes, over on the IMDB v2.1 Movie Quotes board, I've used Babylon 5 pictures instead of Star Trek pictures in some threads. See if you can spot them in the Peter Pan (1953) and The Rocketeer (1991) quote threads.
