    McCoy: And your mistake. You overworked him, pushed him, expected too much from him.

    McCoy: I intend to challenge your actions in my medical records. I'll state that I warned you about Bailey's condition. Now that's no bluff.

    Kirk: All right, Doctor. Lets hope we have time to argue about it.

    Kirk thinks for a moment.

    Kirk: Not chess, Mister Spock. Poker. Do you know the game? Ship to ship.

    KIRK: This is the Captain of the Enterprise. Our respect for other lifeforms requires that we give you this warning. One critical item of information that has never been incorporated into the memory banks of any Earth ship. Since the early years of space exploration, Earth vessels have had incorporated into them a substance known as corbomite. It is a material and a device which prevents attack on us. If any destructive energy touches our vessel, a reverse reaction of equal strength is created, destroying...

    KIRK: Destroying the attacker! It may interest you to know that since the initial use of corbomite more than two of our centuries ago, no attacking vessel has survived the attempt.

    Spock walks to Kirk, shaking his head.

    Spock: Although it was well played. I regret not having learned more about this Balok. In some manners he was reminiscent of my father.
