"You are part of an enduring tradition. For over two hundred years, men and women have served with Honor, Courage, and Wisdom. Our first duty has always been to the truth, the guiding principle that defines us. From the stars, knowledge. To wear this uniform is to continue a most noble mission; to explore strange, new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no one has gone before. In this dark hour, you must shine - you must light the way for the lost and oppressed. The final frontier awaits, and though you sail a ship upon a sea in storm, you wear the uniform; you carry the tradition. Valor and Sacrifice are your
chwords. Whatever comes, whatever finds you, stand tall, hold fast; you are a starfleet officer."
