    T'PAU: This combat is to the det.

    (Hey, if people can spell 'wessel' phonetically, I can do the same with 'det'. :p)

    KIRK: Now wait a minute, ma'am. Who said anything about a fight to the death?

    (Brian: it would have looked wrong if you'd spelled it "death" anyway! :))

    T'PAU: I can forgive such a display only once. Challenge was given and lawfully accepted. It has begun. Let no one interfere.
    (And so the fight begins, first with a trial of brute strength, then a good swing by Spock slices open Kirk's tunic and cuts his chest. It is clear that the first officer will kill his captain, given the chance. When Kirk is down and unarmed, Spock goes in for the final blow.)

    McCOY: Is this Vulcan chivalry? The air is too hot and thin for Kirk. He's not used to it.

    MCCOY: (holding up a hypo) I can compensate for the atmosphere and the temperature with this. At least it'll give Kirk a fighting chance.

    Kirk: Kill Spock? That's not what I came to Vulcan for, is it? What's that?

    T'PAU: The ahn woon.
    (The bells sound, and both men are given long straps with weights and tassels on the ends. Spock demonstrates it use by lassoing Kirk's legs and knocking him down with it before holding it in the middle to use first as a flail, and finally to strangle his opponent.)
    T'PAU: Kroykah!
