Re: "Arena" Line-by-Line

(From his vantage point on the ridge, Kirk watches the Gorn at work, then spots a lone rock neatly balanced on a pinnacle above his adversary. He pushes it over, the Gorn looks up, then we get the cloud of dust and a view of the reptile under the rock, lying still. Confident, Kirk comes down to check on his kill, just in time to see the Gorn move, grasp his stone dagger, and get up again. The rock continues on its way down the slope. The mammal runs away, straight into reptiles trap of vines and rocks. Now Kirk is pinned under a boulder, and at his enemy's mercy.
But the Gorn has to move the boulder to be able to stab him, so once again Kirk is able to dodge away, albeit with a limp.
)

(Enterprise)

Spock: This is the U.S.S. Enterprise calling the Metrons. Our channels are open. Come in, please. We urgently desire a conference. Please answer.

Re: "Arena" Line-by-Line

[Planet surface]
Kirk hobbles up to a rock face with bright yellow powder spread across it, and takes a rest. We keep cutting to the Gorn, who can hear everything he says, remember.

KIRK: This may be my last entry. I am almost exhausted. Unless I find the weapon the Metron mentioned I have very little time left. Native sulphur, diamonds. This place is a mineralogist's dream. Yet there is something about sulphur. Something very old. Something? If only I could remember.

The Gorn's roar comes closer, and he moves on.

McCoy: The ship, our engines, our weapons. It's just inconceivable that we are immobilised.

Re: "Arena" Line-by-Line

Dimmed lights and swirly viewscreen again.

OUTER LIMITS CONTROL VOICE: We are the Metrons. Your Captain is losing his battle. We would suggest you make whatever memorial arrangements, if any, which are customary in your culture. We believe you have very little time left.

Re: "Arena" Line-by-Line

METRON: Your violent intent and actions demonstrate that you are not civilized. However, we are not without compassion. It is possible you may have feelings toward your Captain. So that you will be able to prepare yourself, we will allow you to see and hear what is now transpiring.

There on the viewscreen is their first sight of a Gorn, then Kirk and yet another mineral deposit.

Spock: Yes, indeed, Doctor, if only there were. Notice the substance encrusting that rock. Yes. Unless I'm mistaken, it's potassium nitrate.

Spock: Perhaps nothing, Doctor. (Kirk tastes the mineral and spits it out) Perhaps everything.

The bridge crew watch as enlightenment dawns and Kirk goes off in search of his other mineral discoveries.

GORN: Earthling! Captain!

Gorn: (over comm) This is your opponent, Earthling. I have heard every word you have said.
