Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

There was a thread like this a long while ago that I started (and it's probably been done before, too). The idea is that someone writes a line from any published Star Trek book or short story (fan-fiction not allowed) and the first person to correctly name the source gets, well, a pat on the back and the chance to pick their own line.

Oh, and it's probably not fair to guess, if you're the author of the quote.

It's really just a way to waste some time, but what the heck?

So I'll start. Name the book:

"Picard's second cup of tea got cold, and the fishtank bubbled on, the lionfish inside it bumping incuriously against the glass and gracefully waving its tan-and-cream-striped spines. It was no wonder, Picard thought, that such people would see him as a demonic figure, and the Enterprise and her sister starships as symbolic of everything they stood against - of doing and being in the universe, of asserting one's own right to exist and to work out what life should be, which was worth desire and passion and energy."
