  • Quotes

    • Picard: Someone invented a hut, someone invented a bow, who taught others, who taught their children, who built a stronger hut, who built a better bow, who taught their children. Now Nuria, suppose one of your cave-dwelling ancestors were to see you as you are today. What would she think?
      Nuria: I don't know.
      Picard: Put yourself in her place. You see, she cannot kill a hornbuck at a great distance. You can. You have a power she lacks.
      Nuria: Only because I have a bow.
      Picard: She has never seen a bow, it doesn't exist in her world. To you, it's a simple tool. To her, it's magic.
