Captain Picard

The 24th century Earth has elimited the major global issues: famine, poverty, terminal diseases, economics. In the episode, “The Neutral Zone,” 3 de-thawed 21st centurians wakes up to find themselves on the Enterprise. Realizing that all of their assets and relatives have died hundreds of years prior, they questioned the meaning of their existence.

One particular money-grabber asks Capt. Picard, “So what’s the point then?”

To this Picard replies “…To improve yourself. To enrich yourself. Enjoy it.”

For one without current meaning, purpose or goal we can only cling to this value: “to improve, to enrich and ultimately find joy.”
