I saw this quote used, uncredited on another site. It sounds Trekish to me. Can anyone tell me it's origin?


"The Captain is not always right. The Captain, however, is always the Captain."

The quote in question is a quote by a man named Adrian Weill. The original quote was changed from captain to boss, 


“The boss may not always be right but he is always the boss.”
― Adrian Weill


It's also from a movie but I can not place it right now.

Did Crusher say something like that in the movie "First Contact" when Picard refused to blow up the ship to stop the Borg?


No response must mean you all agree.

Similar - she said, "Once the Captain has made up his mind the discussion is over."
