McCoy: Well, I guess a tomb of rocks is the best we can provide for D'Amato.
Kirk: Yeah, it might be the most suitable memorial at that.
McCoy: I wonder what killed him.
Kirk: I don't know. But something or someone did.
Rahda: We're holding warp eight point four, sir. If we can maintain it, our estimated time of arrival is eleven and one half solar hours.
Spock: Eleven point three three seven hours, Lieutenant. I wish you would be more precise.
Scotty: Scott to Bridge. Scott to Bridge.
Spock: Spock here.
Scotty: Mister Spock, the ship feels wrong.
(Everyone on the bridge turns toward Spock with a sort of ''wtf'' look on their faces)
Spock: ''Feels,'' Mr. Scott?
Scotty: I know it doesn't make sense. Instrumentation reads correct, but the feel is wrong.
Scotty (cont.): It's something I can't quite put into words.
Spock: That is obvious, Mr. Scott. I suggest you avoid emotionalism and simply keep your instruments correct. Spock out.
(The cairn is complete, and topped off with a name-stone.)
Sulu: It looks so lonely there.
MCCOY: It would be worse if he had company.
Sulu: Doctor, how can you joke about it?
MCCOY: I'm not joking. Until we know what killed him, none of us are safe.
Kirk: We've got to figure this out and devise a defence against it. Is it possible that the rocks have life?
SULU: You remember on Janus Six, the silicon creatures-
McCoy: But our instruments recorded that. They were life forms. They registered as life forms.
KIRK: Unless we're dealing with beings, intelligent beings who can shield themselves.
