Quotes: You Are in Command Now
Admiral Kendal Ozzel: Lord Vader, the fleet has moved out of lightspeed and we're preparing to... Aaagh! (begins getting Force-choked)
Darth Vader: You have failed me for the last time, Admiral! Captain Piett?
Captain Firmus Piett: Yes, my Lord?
Darth Vader: Make ready to land our troops beyond their energy field, and deploy the fleet, so that nothing gets off the system. (Ozzel collapses to the floor) You are in command now, Admiral Piett.
Admiral Firmus Piett: (nervously) Thank you, Lord Vader!

During training:
Lt. Col. Moore: All right, your officer's dead, what do you do?
Platoon Sergeant: First—
Lt. Col. Moore: All right, HE hesitated, HE'S dead! What do you do?
Sgt. Savage: GET OFF THE CHOPPER!

Lt. Col. Moore: You learn the job of the man above you, and you teach your job to the man below you in rank. That goes for every man in this outfit. Understood?
Troops, in unison: Yes, sir!
Lt. Col. Moore: We'll be landing under fire, gentlemen. Men will die.

"It was once rare for a Galaxy-class to be commanded by one as young as me but the wars with the Klingons and the Borg have a way of eliminating the complacent or unlucky and clearing the way for new blood. Hell, thatís the reason I got my first command, after the Borg killed or assimilated the entire command staff of the Kagoshima, which left me, the second shift weapons officer and the senior-most JG afloat, the shipís acting captain."
Captain Kanril Eleya, Bait and Switch
