Season 1 Quotes
|Season 1 / Episode 9: - Racing the Night|
Galen: If I'm going to die, I'd rather do so in a room with a view.
|Season 1 / Episode 10: - The Memory of War|
Galen: [holding one of these probes] I want you to know that this thing just made a very large dent in my ship. Did you ever think about looking outside before you start throwing things overboard?
Capt. Matthew Gideon: Maybe next time you'll let us know when you're coming. So what brings you here this time?
Galen: An attempt, in all probability foolish and useless, to prevent you from going down to that planet.
Capt. Matthew Gideon: Galen, my people have been looking for this place since we left Earth. Now that you're here, what could you possibly say that would change that?
Galen: Well, how about if you go down there, the odds are that none of you will return alive? - Clear me for docking. Put away the breakables. Turn on the landing lights. I'm coming in.
