Is There in Truth No Beauty? Peace and Long Life

A parting declaration as expressed between Dr. Miranda Jones and Mr. Spock in the transporter room of the U.S.S. Enterprise, from “Is There in Truth No Beauty?” (1968).  The two speak of their experiences with Kollos, an alien ambassador from Medusa, whose entity is formless–Dr. Miranda being his telepathic colleague, and Spock having achieved a mind-meld with him.

“I know now the great joy you felt when you joined minds with Kollos.”

“I rejoice in your knowledge and in your achievement.”

“I understand, Mister Spock. The glory of creation is in its infinite diversity.”

“And the ways our differences combine to create meaning and beauty.”

“Peace and long life, Spock.”

“Live long and prosper, Miranda.”
