Besides, I like my Columbia quote better...

(and not to add more whining to the boards, but since when does this game care about canon?)

Actually, the sister ship to the NX-01 Enterprise was the NX-02 Columbia.

U.S.S. Yamato (Galaxy X) - Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
John F. Kennedy

I.K.S. Archanis (BoP) - Long ago, a storm was heading toward the city of Quin'lat. The people sought protection within the walls, all except one man who remained outside. I went to him and asked what he was doing. "I am not afraid," he said. "I will not hide my face behind stone and mortar. I will stand before the wind and make it respect me." I honored his choice and went inside. The next day, the storm came; and the man was killed. The wind does not respect a fool. Do not stand before the wind.
