Spock: The hypo, Captain.
KIRK: It was set for cordrazine.
KIRK: Communications, emergency medical team.
MCCOY: (screams)Killers! Assassins! I won't let you! I'll kill you first! I won't let you! You won't get me! Murderers! Killers!
(He dashes into the turbolift.)
KIRK: Security alert.
Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. It's five year mission: To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before.
Captain's log, supplemental entry. Two drops of cordrazine can save a man's life. A hundred times that amount has just accidentally been pumped into Doctor McCoy's body. In a strange, wild frenzy, he has fled the ship's Bridge. All connecting decks have been placed on alert. We have no way of knowing if the madness is permanent or temporary, or in what direction it will drive McCoy.
(Transporter room - McCoy enters, knocks out the Chief very quickly and scientifically, then beams himself away)
Kirk: Continue alert, decks four through eleven. The medical department knows as little as we do. In dosages approaching this, there's some record of wild paranoia.
SPOCK: Confirmed by the library record tapes, Captain. Subjects failed to recognize acquaintances, became hysterically convinced that they were in mortal danger, and were seeking escape at any cost. Extremely dangerous to himself or to anyone else who might...
Galloway (on com): Bridge, Security. Alert, alert!
KIRK: Bridge here. Go ahead.
Galloway: Security 054, sir. We just found the transport chief injured.
KYLE [OC]: Captain, Doctor McCoy has beamed himself down to the planet.
Spock: And the transporter at that time, Captain, was focused on the center of the time disturbance.
KIRK: So whatever's down there, McCoy is in the heart of it. Set up a landing party. Let's go get him. Kirk out.
(Planet surface - The landing party is Kirk, Spock, Scott, Uhura and two security guards. Among remains of fluted columns and fragments of Greek-style buildings is an irregular dough-nut shaped object with lights in it)
Kirk (cont.): These ruins extend to the horizon. Begin recording.
Uhura: Recording, sir.
SPOCK: And of considerable age. On the order of ten thousand centuries old.
Kirk: Detail, fan out. What is this thing, Mr. Spock? It seems to be pulsating with power of some kind. Analysis, please.
SPOCK: Unbelievable, Captain.
Kirk: That's funny.
Spock: This single object is the source of the time displacement.
