    Here's a good one, that I found on a Will Smith album.

    "It takes a village to raise a child." From an old African Proverb. That gave just the right kind of sense of community and learning that I always feel Bridge Quotes should imply...

    Its just me, but when I read dedication quotes, I always try to either match it up to the class or ship name, but even more importantly, try to work out if the quote invokes the spirit. After all, it should raise morale and imply a sense of standards used by the ship...

    like I said. IMHO.

    That said. Most of the dedication quotes on this thread are good ones... Nice one people.

    I've been tinkering with the idea of adding a U.S.S. Pioneer to my game, an Intrepid-class vessel. If I do, this'll be her quote...

    "Bring me men to match my mountains, Bring me men to match my plains; Men with new eras in their purpose and empires in their brains."

    Finally I come through with something serious on this thread...

    I give you my campaign's notion of the dedication for the USS Achilles:

    These fought on in the likeness of blazing fire (Iliad, Book 18)

    I though it an infinitely appropriate quote for a Star Trek ship. And subtle, too.
