The Federation isn't just about ships and warp-drive. It's about a vision and all those that believe in that vision.

Burnham

They don't get a lot of walk-ins here. Follow my lead. Try not to get us shot.

Burnham

Burnham: I'm guessing your cargo used to be someone else's cargo.
Book: It was never his.
Burnham: You stole it.
Book: I repatriated it.
Burnham: You're a thief.
Book: Courier. Someone needs something to get somewhere, I'll bring it.

Book: You believe in ghosts.
Burnham: What does that mean?
Book: That badge on your shirt. Every time you see a guy with one of those badges, getting himself all worked up about the Federation, the old days. True believers. Can't handle that it's gone.

Burnham: I am telling you, stop. Nobody has to get hurt.
Book: You might.
Burnham: I am not fighting you. You're fighting me.

The Burn was the day the galaxy took a hard left. Dilithium. One day, most of it just went boom.

Book

Burnham: Listen.
Book: I listen better without holding that antique to my head. Want to put that down?
Burnham: No.

Burnham: You have a very large cat.
Book: Yes, she has a thyroid condition.
Burnham: Does she have a name?
Book: Grudge.
Burnham: Because?
Book: She's heavy and all mine.

I don't know where I am. I have nowhere to go back to. The only thing I can do right now is trust something. Or someone. And I am sorry you don't want it to be... but it's you. So please, please help me.

Burnham

Book: The nearest natural wormhole is a hundred light-years from here. That means you came out of a wormhole you created with tech from I don't know where. You think ripping holes in space is a good idea? Wasn't bad enough for you the Gorn destroyed two light-years worth of subspace?
Burnham: Wait. The Gorn did what?
Book: How many people do you think are on channels right now saying,'I saw a crazy woman in a funny suit. Anyone want to buy some last known coordinates? Where did you get that weapon? I don't want to know. Your rocket girl outfit scanned for tritanium alloy. Hasn't been anything like that in years.
Burnham: Do NOT call me 'Rocket Girl'

Orion: How are you connected to the Federation?
Burnham: I'm dying to talk about it. DYING to talk about it because today does not happen to people. EVER. I might be angry about it. I'm supportive. I mean, I'm SO supportive. I am reflexively supportive and what is that about? I'm overcompensating.

I know Andorians don't do fun but there's a real market for this stuff.
