Sci Fi wedding quotes

My friends are having a sci fi themed wedding and would like some quotes to use during the ceremony. I figured that the internet might be a good place to get suggestions. Any ideas are welcome, romantic, humorous, etc.

Anything G' kar said in the 5 years of Babylon 5, or Kosh for that matter,..."So it begins." that would work. Or if the situation warrants..."The avalanche has already started. It is too late for the pebbles to vote."

Picard: Will Riker, you have been my trusted right arm for fifteen years. You have helped keep my course true and steady. Deanna Troi, you have been my conscience and guide. You have helped me to recognize the best parts of myself.
[to both]
Picard: You are my family. And in maritime tradition, I wish you clear horizons... my friends, make it so.


McCoy: "... The things love can drive a man to -- the ecstasies, the the miseries, the broken rules, the desperate chances, the glorious failures and the glorious victories."


Kirk: "Love sometimes expresses itself in sacrifice."


Kirk: "The idea of male and female are universal constants."


Kirk: "You'll learn something about men and women -- the way they're supposed to be. Caring for each other, being happy with each other, being good to each other. That's what we call love. You'll like that a lot."

Light is the left hand of darkness
and darkness is the right hand of light.
Two are one, life and death, lying
together like lovers in kemmer,
like hands joined together,
like the end and the way.

Ursula K. Le Guin, Left Hand of Darkness

There should be hidden "42"s in the program and decorations. Oh, and the front of the program should say "Don't Panic."

Replace the vows with:

He: Do you love me?
She: I love you.
He: Do you trust me?
She: I trust you.

I now pronounce you a pair of replicants.


Do I RC that before Kirk and Spock fight in "Amok Time," there's a bit where T'Pau asks something like "Who fights for this woman?"

I'd have to think there'd be something good from the Star Trek TNG episode "In Theory," where Data asks various crew members for advice on love. I'm just not sure where to look.

"In this galaxy, there is a mathematical probability of three million Earth-type planets. And in all of the universe, three million million galaxies like this. And in all of that, and perhaps more, only one of each of us." -Dr. McCoy, Star Trek

I was about to add 'Live long and prosper' until I saw ActingTheGoat beat me to it... Wow it took that long for someone to add that? Seriously, though - live long (wink wink) and prosper (no winks necessary).

Best answer: friends of mine had g'kar's "Declaration of Principles" as one of the readings at their wedding. and it was nerdy enough to have a ring-bearing r2d2, as well as the couple's first light saber battle after their first dance.
