  • Quotes

    • Harper: You give me a corpse from down in deep freeze, and I give you a worthy Go partner, with all the knowledge and memories I could dig up or extrapolate... You're kinda creepy, you know that?

    • Harper: Good intentions. Hell. You draw the map.

    • Rhade: Our people were meant to be living Gods, warrior-poets who roamed the stars bringing civilization, not cowards and bullies who prey on the weak and kill each other for sport. I never imagined they'd prove themselves so inferior. I didn't betray our people – they betrayed themselves.

    • Harper: (Laughing) Stop it, you're killing me!
      (Rhade hits him hard with his force lance)
      Harper: (In pain) Stop it, you're killing me!

    • Rhade: A man makes his own fate.

    • Rhade: You know what they say: 'You can lead a Nightsider to water, but you can't make him spawn.'

    • Rhade: The only way for a Nietzschean to improve himself, is to engage in continual self-assessment.

    • Rhade: Everything is about politics.
      Dylan: Everything? Friends? Family?
      Rhade: Everything!

    • Rhade: You know the old saying: 'Keep your friends close; Keep your enemies under constant surveillance.'

    • Rhade: History will judge me a traitor for what I am about to do, but if he fails, if Dylan fails, imagine how they'll judge him.
      Trance: With silence.

    • Rhade: Nietzscheans used to say we acted out of 'enlightened self-interest'. The problem with Bolivar and his ilk is that they've forgotten the most important word- 'enlightened'!

    • Trance: Right here, right now, you have a very unique opportunity. To re-shape the entire universe according to your own will! And--this opportunity isn't going to come to you again.
      Rhade: You can't know that. I can still do this. I can still rebuild what I helped to destroy!
      Trance: With no allies? Even as we speak, Harper and the Perseids are on the way to the machine shop, and one of them is not going to make it.

    • Rhade: I don't suppose you have any witty, but marginally helpful thought you want to offer?
      Beka: No. I wish I did.

    • Trance: Trust me, Captain, please. Let me help you create the future that you wished for when you killed your best friend. Let me help you save him.

    • Dylan: Strange...
      Harper: What? Us standing here over a dead Nietzschean on ice? Yeah it's strange, but it's also kinda nice, isn't it?

    • Dylan: Are you saying I can't trust you?
      Rhade: I'm saying you can't afford to take any chances.

    • It matters little how we die,
      so long as we die better men than we
      imagined we could be --
      and no worse than we feared.
