Natasha Yar's last words
These are the final words of Lt. Natasha "Tasha" Yar to the bridge crew of
the U.S.S. Enterprise on the holodeck after her death. They will always
be treasured by the people who loved her.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard:
"We are here together to honor our friend and comrade, Lt. Natasha
Yar. Coming to terms with the loss of a colleague is perhaps the most
difficult task we must face in the work we have chosen to pursue. We
will all find time to grief for her in the days that are ahead. But
for now, she has asked that we celebrate her life with this."
Lt. Natasha Yar:
"Hello, my friends. You are here now watching this image of me
because I have died. It probably happened while I was on duty, and
quickly, which is what I expected. Never forget I died doing exactly
what I chose to do. What I want you to know is how much I loved my
life and those of you who shared it with me. You are my family. You
all know where I came from and what my life was like before. But
Starfleet took that frightened, angry young girl and tempered her. I
have been blest with your friendship and your love.
Will Riker, you are the best! You trusted me; you encouraged me; and
most of all you made me laugh.
Deanna, you are capable of so much love. You taught me without ever
having to say a word. I realized I could be feminine without losing
Ah, Worf. We are so much alike, you and I. Both worriers, orphans
who found ourselves this family. I hope I met death with my eyes wide
Beverly, your fierce devotion comes from within and can't be
diminished. From you, I have learned to strive for excellence no
matter what the personal cost.
Wesley, I'm sorry I won't be able to see you grow into the exceptional
man you'll become; but your kindness and innocence are ageless.
Geordi, in those moments I felt the most despair you took my hand and
helped me to see things differently. You taught me to look beyond the
My friend, Data, you see things with the wonder of a child, and that
makes you more human than any of us.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard, I wish I could say you've been like a father
to me, but I've never had one so I don't know what it feels like. But
if there was someone in this universe I could choose to be like;
someone who I would want to make proud of me; it's you. You who have
the heart of an explorer and the soul of a poet. So, you'll
understand when I say 'Death is that state in which one exists only in
the memory of others.' Which is why it is not an end, no good-byes,
just good memories. Hailing frequencies closed, sir."
