- Lieutenant Uhura: Mister Spock! Are you all right?
- Spock: Yes. I believe no permanent damage was done.
- Lieutenant Uhura: What happened?
- Spock: The occipital area of my head seems to have impacted with the arm of the chair.
- Lieutenant Uhura: No, Mister Spock. I meant what happened to us?
- Spock: Can you give me warp 8?
- Montgomery Scott: Aye, sir. And maybe a wee bit more. I'll sit on the warp engines myself and nurse them.
- Spock: That position, Mr. Scott, would be not only unavailing, but also... undignified.
- Montgomery Scott: Mr. Spock, the ship feels wrong.
- Spock: "Feels," Mr. Scott?
- Montgomery Scott: I know it doesn't make sense. Instrumentation reads correct, but the feel is wrong! It's something I can't put into words.
- Spock: That is obvious, Mr. Scott. Avoid emotionalism and simply keep your instruments correct. Spock out.
- Lieutenant Uhura: Mr. Spock what are the chances of the captain and the others being alive?
- Spock: Lieutenant, we are not engaged in gambling. We are proceeding in the only logical way to return to the place they were last seen, and factually ascertain whether or not they still live.
- Montgomery Scott: Aye, Mister Spock, and I found out why. The emergency bypass control of the matter/antimatter integrator is fused. it's completely useless. The engines are running wild. there is no way to get at them. We should reach maximum overload in 15 minutes.
- Spock: I would calculate 14.87 minutes Mr. Scott.
- Montgomery Scott: Those few seconds won't make any difference Mister Spock. because you and I and the rest of the crew will no longer be here to bandy it back and forth. this thing is going to blow up, and there's nothing in the universe that can stop it.
