  • This story should be shared with the world.

    Possiably the best line of any Episode comes from Jean Luc Picard: Horrifying. (pause) Dr. Barron, your report describes how rational these people are. Millennia ago, they abandoned their belief in the supernatural. Now you are asking me to sabotage that achievement, to send them back into the Dark Ages of superstition and ignorance and fear. No! We will find some way to undo the damage we've caused. I like how he compares the belief in false gods and the supernatural as being in the "Dark Ages" If only we as a society today had someone to pull us from our "Dark Ages" and throw us into the reality that you don't need to believe in an all powerful supernatural entity to strive and succeed as a society.
