SCOTT: What did it do to me?
KIRK: Doctor McCoy will explain it to you.
SPOCK: Well, Doctor?
MCCOY: Nurse, I want him prepared for a full physical examination.
CHAPEL: Yes, sir.
KIRK: Nomad, come here.
(They all go to the doorway to the medical bay. Uhura is in bed, still staring blankly)
KIRK: Repair that unit.
NOMAD: Not possible.
KIRK: You restored Scott. He had much more extensive damage.
NOMAD: The unit Scott required simple structural repair. The knowledge banks of this unit have been wiped clean.
SPOCK: Captain, if that is correct, if there has been no brain damage but only knowledge erased, she could be re-educated.
MCCOY: Yes. I'll get on it right away. Oh, and in spite of the way you repaired Scotty, you metal ticking
SPOCK: Does the creator wish Nomad to wait elsewhere?
KIRK: Yes. Nomad, you will go with these units. (the two red-shirts) They will take you to a waiting area. Take it to the top security cell.
(Nomad and its escort leave.)
SPOCK: Doctor, I interrupted you because Nomad would not have understood your anger. It has great technical skill, but its reaction to emotion is unpredictable. It almost qualifies as a life-form.
MCCOY: That's a laugh.
SPOCK: The study of it would be of great use, Captain.
KIRK: It's a killer, Spock. I intend to render it harmless. Get down to the Brig. Run a full analysis on the mechanism. I want to know what makes that thing tick.
SPOCK: Yes, sir.
(Spock is sitting with arms crossed as Nomad floats in front of him.)
KIRK: What's the problem?
