James T. Kirk: We are gathered here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. But it should be noted that this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... human.


James T. Kirk: [voiceover] Captain's log, stardate 8141.6. Starship Enterprise departing for Ceti Alpha V to pick up the crew of U.S.S. Reliant. All is well. And yet I can't help wondering about the friend I leave behind. "There are always possibilities," Spock said. And if Genesis is indeed life from death, I must return to this place again.
Leonard McCoy: He's really not dead... as long as we remember him.
James T. Kirk: [paraphrases 'A Tale of Two Cities'] "It's a far, far better thing I do than I have ever done before. A far better resting place I go to, than I have ever known."
Carol Marcus:: Is that a poem?
James T. Kirk: No. Something Spock was trying to tell me on my birthday.
Leonard McCoy: You okay, Jim? How do you feel?
James T. Kirk: Young. [voice cracking] I feel young.

Spock: [voiceover] Space, the final frontier. These are the continuing voyages of the starship Enterprise. Her ongoing mission, to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life forms and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone... before.
[closing monologue]
