Birthright (Star Trek: The Next Generation) Quotes

  • (Lieutenant Worf) "I would not have thought it possible -- to love a Romulan."
  • (Tokath) "I know that there are those among you who may question what I'm about to do; and you would not be wrong to do so. I have questioned myself. I have spent the night considering my decision, challenging myself to justify whether it is right, and I have reached the conclusion that it is absolutely necessary -- to put this man to death. What we have built together would be destroyed by this man, and I cannot allow that to happen."
  • (Tokath) "I give you one last chance to accept our way of life."

  • (Toq) "Today I learned the ritual hunt, but that is not all I learned. I discovered that warriors' blood runs through my veins. I do not know how, or why, but we have forgotten ourselves. Our stories are not told, our songs are not sung. Tonight, as we came home, we sang a song of victory; a song known only to me as a lullaby; but it is a warrior's song: "Bak'ta tu mo"; Fire streaks the heavens. "So-ja du wo"; Battle has begun."

  • (Captain Jean-Luc Picard) "You found what you were looking for, Mr. Worf?"

  • (L'Kor) "Why did you come here Worf? If you had found your father, you would have found -- only dishonor."

  • (L'Kor) "I can only hope that if my son came here; he would be Klingon enough to kill me."
  • (Gi'ral) "Long ago, when your captives asked to stay here, our hope was to avoid dishonoring our children on the homeworld, but perhaps over the years, we -- lost sight of our children that we raised here. This is our prison. It should not be theirs."
  • (Lieutenant Worf) "Are you afraid to die while escaping?"
  • (L'Kor) "We are dead, Worf. We died at Khitomer."

Now, you may be content to sit here in the jungle and wither to old age, but Toq and the others have tasted what it is to feel truly alive, and they will not give that up now."
