"I’ve heard enough about the great Zefram Cochrane. I don’t know who writes your history books or where you get your information, but you people got some pretty funny ideas about me. You all look at me as if I’m some kind of saint or visionary or something. …I built this ship so that I could retire to some tropical island filled with naked women. That’s Zefram Cochrane. That’s his vision. This other guy you keep talking about, this historical figure? I never met him. I can’t imagine I ever will." - Zefram Cochrane
