McCoy: Captain, it doesn't make sense. In fact, nothing about this planet makes sense.
KIRK: Except for a momentary fluctuation on your instruments, this planet has no magnetic field. The apparent age of these rocks is only a few thousand years. No known process could evolve the plant life they have here in that short space of time.
MCCOY: Are you suggesting this might be an artificial planet?
SULU: But Captain, where are the people who made it? Why can't we see them?
Kirk: The planet might be hollow. They might be shielding themselves from our sensor probes. It's dark. Let's get some rest. Tomorrow we have to find some food and some water or it's going to be a very unpleasant stay.
MCCOY: While it lasts.
Sulu: I'll take the first watch, sir.
KIRK: All right. Take D'Amato's tricorder. Set it for automatic distress. You never can tell.
SULU: Aye, sir.
SPOCK: Spock to Sickbay. Have you completed the autopsy on Watkins, Doctor?
M'BENGA: Yes, we have, Mister Spock.
SPOCK: Was the cause of his death the same as that which killed the transporter officer?
M'BENGA: Well, the pattern of cellular disruption was the same; but as to the cause, well, your guess is as good as mine.
SPOCK: My guess, Doctor, would be valueless. I suggest we refrain from guessing and find some facts. Spock out.
^ SPOCK: The power of this intruder to disrupt every cell in a body, combined with the almost inconceivable power required to hurl the Enterprise such a distance, speak of a very high culture and a very great danger.
SCOTT: You mean that one of the people who threw us a thousand light years away from that planet is on board and killing our people?
SPOCK: A reasonable assumption, Mister Scott.
SCOTT: Then you're right, Mister Spock. Watkins must've been murdered. I sent him in to check the matter-antimatter reactor. There are no exposed circuits there. It couldn't have been anything he touched.
SPOCK: If there are more of those beings on that planet, the captain and the others are in very great danger.
(While Kirk and McCoy sleep, Losira turns off the tricorder. Sulu confronts her.)
LOSIRA: I am unarmed.
SULU: Who are you?
