  • Quotes

    • McCoy: Compassion. That's the one thing no machine ever had. Maybe it's the one thing that keeps men ahead of them. Care to debate that, Spock?
      Spock: No, Doctor. I simply maintain that computers are more efficient than human beings, not better.
      McCoy: But tell me, which do you prefer to have around?
      Spock: I presume your question is meant to offer me a choice between machines and human beings. And I believe I have already answered that question.
      McCoy: I was just trying to make conversation, Spock.
      Spock: It would be most interesting to impress your memory engrams on a computer, Doctor. The resulting torrential flood of illogic would be most entertaining.
