->'''Mikoto''': Without the Program Drive, the probability of success is only 32.5%!\\
'''Entouji''': If we support it from here, the probability could rise to 60%...\\
'''Hyuuma''': That means that if each of us pilots adds 10% from our ''guts'', it'll be 100%!

->'''Nogg:''' Ugh. Martina, please don't tell me that was your plan.\\
'''Martina:''' I wouldn't advise thinking about the odds.\\
'''Nogg:''' There ''are'' no odds to ''think'' about! If you do this, the probability of our deaths is inevitable.\\

->''"This had better be some defense," Luke commented as they left the bridge and headed back down the portside corridor. "Especially when we're talking maybe forty-to-one odds."\\

Han shook his head. "[[CallBack Never tell me the odds]]," he admonished the other, glancing at his chrono. It could be any time now. "Besides, you never know when the odds are going to change."''

"I understand there's a one hundred percent fatality rate?"\\
"True. But up until the moment of death there was a one hundred percent ''survival'' rate. Really, I shouldn't let anything as meaningless as statistics put you off."''

->'''Lieutenant Ekalu:''' There's no margin for error or accident. There are so many ways things could go horribly wrong.\\
'''Fleet Captain Breq:''' When you're doing something like this, the odds are irrelevant. You don't need to know the odds. You need to know how to do the thing you're trying to do. [[{{Determinator}} And then you need to do it.]] What comes next isn't something you have any control over.

'''Janeway:''' Go ahead. Without us, you won't be able to prevent this ship from being torn apart by the pulsars. And even with my crew working together, I'd say the odds of us getting through this are, what, one in ten?\\
'''Tuvok:''' One in twenty, at best, Captain.\\
