KIRK: That'll take us out of the galaxy.
UHURA: Captain, reports coming in from the lower decks. Emergency bulkheads have closed. Almost four hundred crewmen are trapped down there, sir.
KANG: Most interesting. The bulk of your crew trapped, your ship racing from this galaxy at wild speeds. Delightful. How did I perform this sabotage, Kirk? All my men are here.
KIRK: Johnson. Get down to Security. Search every section. Some Klingons may have beamed aboard undetected from the wrecked ship. Then get down to Engineering and help Scotty hammer things back to normal. And free those trapped crewmen.
And before I put you in the brig, there's a little something I owe you.
(He punches Kang. A solitaire set on a table changes into a short sword which Kang picks up. A potted plant and 3D chess set become swords.)
(But they turn into swords too. There's a stunned pause then a brief fight as the Starfleet group get out of the room.)
BALD KLINGON: Stand and fight, you cowards.
(Another brief skirmish and Johnson gets stabbed. They make it into the turbolift.)
Stand and fight you cowards!
(The security men carry their comrade out.)
KIRK: The Klingons are free. They're armed as we are. They'll try to take the ship. Scotty, how many men do we have?
Scotty: 392 trapped below decks.
KIRK: Deploy forces to protect your section and the auxiliary control centre.
KIRK [OC]: Check the armoury, and try and free those trapped crewmen.
SCOTT: The doors and bulkheads won't budge. We'll have to cut through.
Kirk: Blow out the bulkheads if you have to. We need numbers. What kind of luck have you had controlling the ship's speed?
SCOTT: None, sir. She's a projectile at warp nine. And don't ask me what's holding her together.
KIRK [OC]: Five-minute report. Kirk out.
KIRK: Full sensor scan of the ship. Report on any movement by the Klingons. The Klingon Empire has maintained a duelling tradition. They think they can beat us with swords.
SPOCK: Captain, neither the Klingon technology nor ours, is capable of this. The instantaneous transmutation of matter. I doubt that they are responsible.
KIRK: Any other logical candidate?
SPOCK: None. However, if they had such power, would they not have used it to create more effective weapons and only for themselves?
KIRK: Mister Sulu. Get below. Take command of Engineering and auxiliary control.
SULU: Aye, sir.
CHEKOV: Captain. (he has a sword too)
KIRK: Mister Chekov.
