    Spock: It may well be possible, Doctor. We know very little about that section of the galaxy.

    Spock: Yes.

    (They watch as Kirk returns to the bamboo clump and picks out a short, wide stem.)

    Spock: Fascinating. Good. Good. (Kirk cuts vines to length against a rock) He knows, Doctor. He has reasoned it out.

    (Potassium nitrate gets shoveled into the bamboo)

    Spock: Yes. Yes.

    Spock: An invention, Doctor. First potassium nitrate, and now if he can find some sulfur and a charcoal deposit or ordinary coal.

    SPOCK: Diamonds. The hardest known substance. Impelled by sufficient force, they would make formidable projectiles.
