  • Quotes

    • Koenig: Simmonds, we can't afford to waste our time on something scientifically impossible.
      Simmonds: Impossible? The impossible takes just a little longer, that's all, Commander.

    • Simmonds: Koenig. I think I'd better come too.
      Koenig: Commissioner, right now I need a doctor and a scientist out there. Not a politician.

    • Zantor: On Earth, you freeze food to keep it fresh, do you not?
      Dr. Russell: Yes. We do here.
      Zantor: But the flavor fades.
      Dr. Russell: The problem's the same all over the universe.
      Zantor: Exactly. The flavor of life itself is lost.

    • Simmonds: Look, Koenig, I ought to be the one to go. I mean, I have no place here on Alpha. No function.
      Koenig: Believe me, Simmonds, if I could rig that computer, it would shout out your name. But you take your chance like the rest of them.
