Peace is a lie, there's only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.

The Rodney Matthews type 1970s sci-fantasy ones are ghastly (and not a patch on Matthews!), but the older 1950s space exploration ones are quite wonderful in an inspirational and speculative "this is how we imagine things really will work in the future" sort of way.
STRIKE !!!
