    Kudos for the gene roddenberry quote, the guys a legend.

    I've got plently of 'favourite' quotes, most of them you'll have heard before in one place or another, so i'll go with this, its simply breathtaking in its simplicity, humanity and foresight, its too long to quote in its entirety, fortunately some genius has taken the original footage and made it look pretty...

    I'm being honest when i say its one of the most impressive things ive ever seen or heard. I must have watched to over a dozen times since coming across it a few months ago, and it still evokes the same reaction.


    On a lighter note, heres another Churchill classic...

    He was a real charmer :clap:
