Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

This quote from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is the ultimate expression of Spock’s utilitarianism. Spock believes that a sacrifice is justified if it benefits more people than it harms, he sees this as only logical. This of course is an interesting counter philosophy to the Federation’s humanism.

The great thing about Star Trek was that it could present you with all these different viewpoints and philosophies without labeling one as right and one as wrong.
