    (Claudius and guards come in from two different entrances.)

    CLAUDIUS: Hold! We're in each other's line of fire. I pity you, Captain Merik, but at least watch and see how men die. Swords only!

    (So the fight starts, and Spock acquires a sword very quickly. The cell door is a defensible position.)

    MERIK: (into communicator) Starship, lock in on this. Three to beam...

    (Claudius stabs him, but Merik manages to throw the communicator into the cell with the landing party.)

    SCOTT [OC]: Enterprise to Captain Kirk. Ready to beam up three.

    (They disappear in a hail of bullets.)

    Captain's log, stardate 4041.7. Note commendation, Engineering Officer Scott. Despite enormous temptation...


    [Bridge]
    KIRK: ... and strong personal feelings, he obeyed the Prime Directive. His temporary blackout of the city below resulted in no interference with the society and yet saved the lives of myself and the landing party.

    MCCOY: Captain, I see on your report Flavius was killed. I am sorry. I liked that huge sun worshiper.

    SPOCK: I wish we could have examined that belief of his more closely. It seems illogical for a sun worshiper to develop a philosophy of total brotherhood. Sun worship is usually a primitive superstition religion.

    UHURA: I'm afraid you have it all wrong, Mister Spock, all of you. I've been monitoring some of their old-style radio waves, the empire spokesman trying to ridicule their religion. But he couldn't. (pause) Don't you understand? It's not the sun up in the sky. It's the Son of God.

    KIRK: Wouldn't it be something to watch, to be a part of? To see it happen all over again? Mister Chekov, take us out of orbit. Ahead warp factor one.
