Quotes: Set Right What Once Went Wrong
Guy: Benjamin Franklin?

"One more ship will make no difference in the here and now. But 22 years ago, one ship could have stopped this war before it started."
— Star Trek: The Next Generation, "Yesterday's Enterprise"
"Is it just the chance to get off the dreary Voyager sets for somewhere that looks a bit more dynamic, or is just the little boy in me that wants to go exploring? If I were going to request any assignment on a Starship I wouldn’t want to be stuck somewhere dull like under Picard’s care or in Janeway’s Starfleet hell, I wouldn’t even want to shack up with Annorax ("Year of Hell") and blast away entire civilisations. Nope, the Dauntless would be my ideal assignment, travelling backwards and forwards in time dealing temporal incursions. Frankly it’s a notion that has so much potential I’m surprised they didn’t pick it up as a possible candidate as the next Star Trek series rather than Enterprise. Just think of the possibilities, the cameos that could be had, the imaginative stories you could explore – a series with time travel built into its core can be quite malleable I hear (or at least a 50 year old British SF show tells me)."
