Let's not forget that the command crew of a starship are likely to be bolder, more selfless, yes, more heroic than the average schlub. And these characters gave us people to emulate. I've stuck my neck out more than a few times for others; Star Trek and Superman may have had something to do with that.

Just to mess things up, I'll also toss in Kirk's line in TFF:
"I'm afraid of nothing."
Weakest line of the movie. I'm amazed at how Shatner got so much of the other characters right - I never expected that - but his Kirk came off as petty. I prefer to look at the line in context, as if to say he fears nothing within his own psyche.
"shall not be infringed" is naturally open to infringements of all kinds, because shut up and think of the children.
