UHURA: It's another signal now, sir.
SPOCK: It's a formula, Captain. They're sending us a mathematical message and requesting language equivalence. They're trying to communicate.
KIRK: Tie in the ship's translator to the communication channel. Let them take it at their own speed.
UHURA: Aye, Captain.
(Suddenly one of Spock's console monitors burns out.)
SPOCK: Cut power, Lieutenant. Overloaded and burned out.
KIRK: I guess they can take it faster than we give it.
UHURA: Captain, the message is coming in now.
NOMAD [OC]: USS Enterprise, this is Nomad. My mission is non-hostile.
KIRK: Apparently they got what they needed before the computers burned out.
NOMAD [OC]: Require communication. Can you leave your ship?
KIRK: It is impossible to come aboard your ship because of the size differential.
NOMAD [OC]: Non sequitur. Your facts are uncoordinated.
KIRK: We are prepared to beam you aboard our ship.
NOMAD [OC]: That will be satisfactory.
KIRK: Do you require any special conditions, any particular atmosphere or environment?
NOMAD [OC]: Negative. I will come aboard.
KIRK: Good. Hold your position. We're locked onto your co-ordinates. We'll beam you aboard.
SCOTT: Captain, you're not really bringing that thing in here?
KIRK: Do we have any choice, Scotty? Besides, once it's aboard, it won't be taking any more shots at us. Lieutenant, get a repair crew on that computer. Get Doctor McCoy down to the transporter room. Spock, you come with me. Scotty, you too.
