Star Trek: The Next Generation

TNG 1.21 – Symbiosis

RIKER (über Sonneneruptionen):
The violence of those eruptions is awesome.

TASHA (über Drogen):
Wesley, on my home world, there was so much poverty and violence that for some people, the only escape was through drugs.
How can a chemical substance provide an escape?
It doesn’t. But it makes you think it does.
I guess I don’t understand.
Wesley, I hope you never do.
Data schaut verwirrt. In was für einer Serie bin ich eigentlich?

PICARD (zu Crusher):
Beverly, the Prime Directive is not just a set of rules, it is a philosophy, and a very correct one. History has proved again and again that whenever mankind interferes with a less developed civilization, no matter how well intentioned that interference may be, the results are invariably disastrous.
