Kirk: Do you know the one, ‘All I ask is a tall ship’?
McCoy: It’s a line from a poem. A very old poem, isn’t it?
Kirk: 20th century Earth. ‘All I ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer her by’. You could feel the wind at your back in those days. The sounds of the sea beneath you. And even if you take away the wind and the water, it’s still the same. The ship is yours. You can feel her. And the stars are still there, Bones.
