Going from memory again, YMMV:

Carol: "He's going to catch up to us and when he does the only thing that's gonna stop him destroying this ship is me so you'd better let me talk to him!"
Kirk: "Relax, we're at warp, he can't catch us."
Carol: "Yes he can! He's been designing a ship with Mark Four capabilities including--"
Sulu: "Captain... I'm getting a reading here I don't understand..."
Definitely not. I first though Carol Marcus said:

Carol: "Yes he can! He's been designing a ship with transwarp capabilities including--"

but when I saw it the second time, I heard

Carol: "Yes he can! He's been designing a ship with advanced warp capabilities including--"

The audience isn't going to understand "Mark four capabilities" (I don't even know what that means), so why would they choose to include distracting technobabble and make people miss the point?
