  • Quotes

    • Janeway: (on screen) I'd made myself clear, but the Doctor disobeyed my direct orders. In the process, he endangered the ship and crew.
      Arbitrator: That's hardly commendable behaviour.
      Janeway: No, it wasn't. But it was human. Starfleet had programmed him to follow orders. The fact that he was capable of doing otherwise proves that he can think for himself. Your honour, centuries ago in most places on Earth, only landowners of a particular gender and race had any rights at all. Over time, those rights were extended to all humans and later, as we explored the galaxy, to thousands of other sentient species. Our definition of what constitutes a person has continued to evolve. Now we're asking that you expand that definition once more, to include our Doctor.
      (small pause, as Janeway stands up and moves over to a console)
      Janeway: When I met him seven years ago, I would never have believed that an EMH could become a valued member of my crew. And my friend. The Doctor is a person as real as any flesh and blood I have ever known. If you believe the testimony you've heard here, it's only fair to conclude that he has the same rights as any of us.
