Sulu: Beings intelligent enough to have destroyed the Enterprise?
KIRK: That's the problem, Sulu. We have only questions. No answers.
(Scotty is trying to track down the source of his feeling, and a man in a red boiler suit keeps looking over his shoulder.)
Scotty: Watkins, check the bypass valve on the matter/antimatter reaction chamber. Make sure it's not overheating.
Watkins: But Mr. Scott, the board shows correct.
Scotty: I didn't ask you to check the board, lad.
WATKINS: Yes, sir.
(Watkins goes off into an adjoining room and checks a console and some panels in there. Then he is confronted by Losira.)
WATKINS: Who are you?
LOSIRA: My name is not important. Yours is Watkins, John B. Engineer Grade four.
WATKINS: You know all about me. I've never seen you before.
LOSIRA: Show me this unit. I wish to learn.
WATKINS: This is the matter-antimatter integrator control. That's the cut off switch.
LOSIRA: Not correct. That is the emergency overload bypass, which engages almost instantaneously. A wise precaution, considering it takes the antimatter longer to explode once the magnetic flow fails. I am for you, Mister Watkins.
WATKINS: Mister Scott, there's a strange woman who knows the entire plan of the Enterprise.
(But by the time Scott gets there, Watkins has screamed and Losira has turned sideways into a vertical line, then vanished.)
SCOTT: Oh, you poor lad. Scott to bridge. Scott to bridge.
SPOCK: Spock here.
SCOTT [OC]: My assistant, Watkins, is dead.
SPOCK: Do you know what he died of, Mister Scott?
SCOTT: I didn't see it happen, but his last words were a warning cry about some strange woman.
SPOCK: Security alert, all decks. Female intruder, extremely dangerous. Security alert, all decks.
(Dusk is falling, the sky is a dark purple.)
SULU: The basic substance of this planet is an alloy of diburnium-osmium. It couldn't have evolved naturally.
