I really thought Babylon 5 was under-appreciated during its tenure. This quote reminds me of Seti@home.

"Of course it is, for the simple reason that no one else would've ever built a place like this. Humans share one unique quality. They build communities. If the Narns or the Centauri or any other race built a station like this, it would be used only by their own people, but everywhere humans go, they create communities out of diverse and sometimes hostile populations. It is a great gift and a terrible responsibility, one that cannot be abandoned."

Tribbles seem to like everyone - except Klingons.

And I just remembered this one, from an engineering conference about 10 years ago. I listened to a department head's proposal, thought about it, and turned to him and with a dead straight face said "Make it so Number One." With an equally dead straight face, he turned to his assistant and said "Make it so Number Two".
