You once asked me for advice. You want some now? Never pass up a good thing.

Jean Rasczak

Someone asked me once if I knew the difference between a civilian and a citizen. I know now. A citizen has the courage to make the safety of the human race their personal responsibility. Dizzy was my friend. She was a soldier. But most important, she was a citizen of the Federation.

Johnny Rico
