    MCCOY: No, I think I can walk. I'll try.

    (McCoy suddenly doubles over in pain and two guards are sent in to help. One gets neck-pinched, the Roman is karate-chopped and the last guard is punched by the invalid.)

    MERIK: Well done, Jim. (Armed guards appear.) I'm afraid it isn't that easy. They've been handling slaves here for two thousand years.

    MERIK: Don't judge me before you know the facts. Come on, we can talk freely here. The Proconsul knows who and what we are.

    [Chamber]


    (Some small animal skins on the floor, a brass brazier, an urn and busts on plinths, and a girl preparing drinks.)

    MERIK: You can leave us.

    (The guards leave.)

    MERIK: Well, a celebration. A meeting of old friends.

    CLAUDIUS: Prepare food for our friends. They've come from a great distance. A great distance indeed. So, this is a Vulcan. Interesting. From what I've heard, I wish I had fifty of you for the arena.

    CLAUDIUS: Come. You must be hungry. Gentlemen? (They sit at a table, and the girl brings over a plate.) Oh, try the sparrow broiled in garum. Delicious. Or perhaps some of this roast kid. Lovely thing, isn't she?
