    (Everyone appears to be unconscious as Kirk runs in alone.)
    KIRK: Nomad? Stop what you're doing and effect repairs on the life-support systems.

    NOMAD: I am programmed to destroy those life-forms which are imperfect. These alterations will do so without destroying the vessel which surrounds them. It, too, is imperfect, but can be adjusted.

    Kirk: Nomad, I admit that biological units are imperfect, but a biological unit created you.

    Kirk: No, you're not Nomad. You're an alien machine. Your programming tapes have been altered.

    NOMAD: You are in error. You are a biological unit. You are imperfect.

    NOMAD: Answer unknown. I shall analyse.
    (Spock enters, with Scott, two engineers and the requested anti-grav units)
    NOMAD: Analysis complete. Insufficient data to resolve problem, but my programming is whole. My purpose remains. I am Nomad. I am perfect. That which is imperfect must be sterilised.

    (The engineers remove the unconscious men and take their places at the controls)

    Kirk: Then you will continue to destroy that which thinks and lives and is imperfect?

    NOMAD: Error is inconsistent with my prime functions. Sterilisation is correction.
