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 anything.
Ah, Worf. We are so much alike, you and I. Both warriors, orphans who found ourselves this family. I hope I met death with my eyes wide open.
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 moment.
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 goodbyes, just good memories.
Hailing frequencies closed, sir.
