SULU: Maybe you ought to plot a course back for Vulcan, just in case.

^ Ah, yes, one of the greatest TOS moments...

KOMACK (on monitor): Captain, you're making a most unusual request.

KIRK: I'm aware of that, sir, but it's of the utmost importance. You must give me permission to divert to Vulcan.

Re: "Amok Time" Line by Line

KOMACK (on monitor): But you refuse to explain why it is so important.

(Of course, you'd think there'd be some precedent for allowing a Vulcan crewmember to take a leave when going through the pon-farr)

^ Couldn't Kirk just give him a shuttle?


KIRK: I can't, sir, but believe me, I wouldn't make such a request...

Re: "Amok Time" Line by Line

^ The trip probably would have taken longer by shuttle. Spock was not the first Vulcan in Starfleet, so this shouldn't a new and unique scenario. What if this situation arose on a ship with an all-Vulcan crew and some admiral said, "No, you have to take your ship to that all-important inaugural ceremony."

KOMACK (on monitor): Altair Six is no ordinary matter. That area is just putting itself together after a long interplanetary conflict. This inauguration will stabilize the entire Altair system. Our appearance there is a demonstration of friendship and strength which will cause ripples clear to the Klingon Empire.

^ They could just have T'Pau make excuses for each of them.


KIRK: Sir, the delay would be, at most, a day. I can hardly believe that...

Komack: (on screen) You will proceed to Altair 6 as ordered. You have your orders. Starfleet out.

And the audience booos the Admiral, proving once again that most Admirals are out of touch idiots.

Re: "Amok Time" Line by Line

KIRK: No, it's not. I know the Altair situation. We would be one of three starships. Very impressive, very diplomatic, but it's simply not that vital.

Re: "Amok Time" Line by Line

KIRK: I can't let Spock die, can I, Bones? And he will if we go to Altair. I owe him my life a dozen times over. Isn't that worth a career? He's my friend. Bridge. Navigation.
