    RAHDA: Yes, Mister Spock. Look. Now here's a replay of the star pattern just before the explosion.

    RAHDA: It doesn't make any sense. But somehow I'd say that in a flash we've been knocked one thousand light years away from where we were.

    Spock: Mister Scott, since we are here, your statement is not only illogical but also unworthy of refutation. It is also illogical to assume that any explosion, even that of a small star going supernova, could have hurled us a distance of nine hundred and ninety point seven light years.

    Scotty: The point is, it shouldn't have hurled us anywhere. Why, it should have destroyed us immediately, vaporized us.

    SPOCK: That is correct, Mister Scott, by all the laws that we know. There was no period of unconsciousness. Our ship's chronometers registered a matter of only a few seconds. Therefore, we were displaced through space in some manner which I am unable to fathom.

    Scotty: What you're saying is that the planet didn't blow up, and the captain and the others, they're still alive!

    Spock: Mister Scott, please restrain your leaps of illogic. I have said nothing. I was merely speculating.

    M'Benga: You asked for an autopsy report. It's only preliminary, but the cause of death seems to have been cellular disruption.
