- Lt. Ray Makonnen: You know, Captain, every year of my life I grow more and more convinced that the wisest and the best is to fix our attention on the good and the beautiful. If you just take the time to look at it.
Sessom: We have two options: try to outrun them, or turn and fight! What would you do? Herron: Me? I would fight! Sessom: And you? Capt. Frank Chapman: ...Fight. Sessom: Right! That's exactly my decision!
Capt. Beecher: It's quiet and lonely out here, and frankly we'll be happy to get back to that dreary old moon.
Sessom: It's true that our technology may be further advanced than yours, but then strange things happened. Capt. Frank Chapman: What was that? Sessom: We let our machines do all our work. People on Rheton became completely free of all labor, practically of all responsibility. Our people became soft and lazy. They did not know how to cope with their free time. They started to fight among themselves. Capt. Frank Chapman: That's very interesting. Many people on Earth are beginning to face the same problem: too much free time, too little work. Capt. Frank Chapman: A problem not at all unique in the history of the universe.
Sessom: We are able to translate all languages with voice tone waves.
