->''Star Trek speaks to some basic human needs: that there is a tomorrow--it's not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb; that the human race is improving; that we have things to be proud of as humans. No, ancient astronauts did not build the pyramids--human beings built them, because they're clever and they work hard. And Star Trek is about those things.''

And the men that reach out into space will be able to find ways to feed the hungry millions of the world and to cure their diseases. They will be able to find a way to give each man hope and a common future. And those are the days worth living for.''

->''The Prime Directive is not just a set of rules; it is a philosophy ... and a very correct one.

->'''Alien 2''': You value your ignorance of what is to come?
->'''Sisko''': That may be the most important thing to understand about humans. It is the unknown that defines our existence. We are constantly searching, not just for answers to our questions, but for new questions. We are explorers. We explore our lives day by day, and we explore the galaxy, trying to expand the boundaries of our knowledge. And that is why I am here. Not to conquer you with weapons, or with ideas. But to coexist... and learn.
