    Kirk: Yeah, it might be the most suitable memorial at that.

    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.

    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.

    Kirk: We've got to figure this out and devise a defence against it. Is it possible that the rocks have life?

    McCoy: But our instruments recorded that. They were life forms. They registered as life forms.
