The ship in my show is named the Earhart. The quote I'm using is:

“Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn't be done.”

Re: What would be some good quotes for a starship dedication plaque?

We could toss in the "Tears in Rain" soliloquy from Blade Runner
"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."

Well, maybe take off the "time to die" part.

Re: What would be some good quotes for a starship dedication plaque?

Here's some more I found:

"Science does not know its debt to imagination."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Men love to wonder, and that is the seed of science."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

-André Gide

“Sailors on a becalmed sea, we sense the stirring of a breeze.”

-Carl Sagan

“The perfect journey is never finished, the goal is always just across the next river, round the shoulder of the next mountain. There is always one more track to follow, one more mirage to explore.”

― Rosita Forbes (a bit long, but I like it)

"Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point."

-C. S. Lewis

"Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace."

-Amelia Earhart

(No more smart-ass ones, please?)

Here are a couple I like, too:
"Imagination - its limits are only of the mind itself." - Rod Serling
"All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them." - Walt Disney
"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." - Walt Disney
