"You are a truly primitive organism, Commander. We could have have given you an eternity of happiness in an instant of time. Now your life will be what the life of your species has always been: cruel...and futile."

"It's better to live as your own man, than as a fool...in someone else's dream."

As a kid I never forgot this exchange, delivered with such conviction by Martin. Here's hoping he's achieved that "eternity of happiness" after all.
