SPOCK: Reading goes off my scale, Captain. Must be a mile in diameter.
Kirk: Reduce image, let me see all of it.
Bailey freezes. Sulu reaches across and operates his controls.
BAILEY: Over five thousand metres away, and it still fills the screen.
SULU: Magnification two five, sir. Magnification one eight point five, sir.
Kirk: Ship to Ship.
UHURA: Hailing frequencies open, sir.
KIRK: This is the United Earth ship Enterprise. We convey greetings and await your reply. What is it, Mister Bailey?
BAILEY: A message coming over my navigation beam.
KIRK: (to Uhura) Pick it up.
UHURA: Switching, sir.
BALOK [OC]: ...and trespassed into our star systems. This is Balok, Commander of the flagship Fesarius of the First Federation. Your vessel, obviously the product of a primitive and savage civilisation, having ignored a warning buoy and having then destroyed it, has demonstrated your intention is not peaceful. We are now considering the disposition of your ship and the life aboard.
KIRK: Ship to ship.
KIRK: This is the Captain of the Enterprise speaking. The warning nature of your space buoy was unknown to us. Our vessel was blocked. When we attempted to disengage... (electrical crackling on the speakers)
SPOCK: Captain, we're being invaded by exceptionally strong sensor probes everywhere. Our electrical systems, our engines.
BALOK (on speakers): No further communication will be accepted. If there is the slightest hostile move, your vessel will be destroyed immediately.
SPOCK: They're shutting off some of our systems, Captain. Brilliant. Extremely sophisticated in their methods.
KIRK: Does the recorder marker have this on its tapes?
SPOCK: Enough to warn other Earth ships.
KIRK: Mister Bailey, dispatch recorder marker. (Bailey doesn't budge) Mister Bailey?
BAILEY: (comes out of his fog) Recorder marker dispatched, sir.
