^ It helped that you just started a review thread for the self-same book.
That's why I didn't post my guess, despite thinking it was from that book. I thought it was to obvious.

Is the new quote from Fire Ship?

No, but I like the way you're thinking.

Huh, how did I miss that? I saw the post before his and the one after it, but not his.

I'm fresh out of guesses!

Nope. Since it's been a day, I'll provide a clue; but just for kicks, I'm providing it in the form of another quote (from the same book, obviously):

Lieutenant Torres stood, hands in fists on her hips, and stared around, halfway satisfied. She had a long rip in her red-and-green uniform, and grease of some sort on her arm, but she had the beginnings of an understanding.
It had taken them half an hour and many different types of tricorder scans to discover an access panel. The panel dropped down, using a piece of the mosaic floor to form a ramp to the main control room. The control room governed--as far as she could tell--the giant transportation system. Dim light shone, omnidirectional, from the pale gray ceiling. The underground air was fresh and just edging into cool, and carried almost no scent. Whatever these people used to filter their air, it worked.
Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Excellent, my cloaking device against mods is working. Now I can start my evil plan to take over this board. *evil laughter*

Ding! Yes, the quotes were taken from the alternate universe portions of Echoes. Your turn.

Okey-doke:

"It is my belief that the Enterprise will never be forgotten. However, both the spirit that created her and the spirit that she in turn was shall live on, despite the fact the shell that housed them will be no more. Let us allow that knowledge to comfort us, and let us remember that we have sworn most of all to perform the duties and uphold the laws and principles upon which our Federation is built."
