Star Trek monologue about love from the 1999 episode “The Disease”
Seven of Nine: Parental love, romantic love, affection between friends – specify.
Harry Kim: Romantic love.
Seven of Nine: An attraction based on sexual desire, one that facilitates procreation.
Seven of Nine: The Borg have referenced this condition in over 6,000 assimilated species.
Harry Kim: Condition? You make it sound like a disease.
Seven of Nine: Physiologically, it bears a striking similarity to disease. A series of biochemical responses that trigger an emotional cascade, impairing normal functioning.
Harry Kim: Forget it.
