I had originally not wanted to see Galaxy Quest because I heard that it was making fun of Star Trek, and then Jonathan Frakes rang me up and said ‘You must not miss this movie! See it on a Saturday night in a full theatre.’ And I did, and of course I found it was brilliant. Brilliant. No one laughed louder or longer in the cinema than I did, but the idea that the ship was saved and all of our heroes in that movie were saved simply by the fact that there were fans who did understand the scientific principles on which the ship worked was absolutely wonderful. And it was both funny and also touching in that it paid tribute to the dedication of these fans.

Star Trek TNG - 2x09 - The Measure Of A Man

Picard: Now, sooner or later, this man, or others like him, will succeed in replicating Commander Data.

Now, the decision you reach here today will determine how we will regard this creation of our genius.

It will reveal the kind of a people we are, what he is destined to be.

It will reach far beyond this courtroom and this one android.

It could significantly redefine the boundaries of personal liberty and freedom.

Expanding them for some, savagely curtailing them for others.

Are you prepared to condemn him and all who come after him to servitude and slavery?

Your Honor, Starfleet was founded to seek out new life!

Well, there it sits!! Waiting…
