SULU: Bridge to all decks. Condition alert. All decks, condition alert. Captain Kirk to the Bridge.
Captain's Log, Stardate 1512.2 On our third day of star mapping, an unexplained cubical object blocked our vessels path. On the bridge, Mister Spock immediately ordered general alert. My location: Sickbay, quarterly physical check.
MCCOY: Just a few seconds more.
Kirk is lying on a pad, pumping panels back and forth from the wall.
Kirk: Just a few seconds more.
MCCOY: That's a boy. Keep it up. Work up a little sweat, it'll will do you good. (He notices the red alert.)
Kirk: You're killing me. You're killing me!
MCCOY: Stop. Winded?
KIRK: You'd be the last one I'd tell. [Notices the red alert]. Kirk here... what's going on?
SPOCK [on monitor]: Have a look at this, Captain.
(The spinning cube Kirk supposedly already knew about appears on the monitor)
KIRK: What's that?
SPOCK [OC]: Undetermined. Whatever it is, it's blocking our way. When we move, it moves as well.
KIRK: A vessel of some kind?
Some of the early episodes had the logs written to sound "real", as if they were written in hindsight after the mission was completed.
SPOCK [OC]: Negative. More some type of device.
KIRK: I'll be right up. You could see the alarm lights flashing from there, McCoy. Why didn't you tell me?
MCCOY: Finally finished a physical on you, didn't I? What am I, a doctor or a moon shuttle conductor? If I jumped every time a light came on around here, I'd end up talking to myself.
(Kirk walks along the corridor as crew members bustle about.)
SULU (over comm): All decks alert. (a beat) All decks alert.
KIRK: Bridge. Captain to Bridge.
SPOCK [OC]: Spock here.
KIRK: Any changes?
SPOCK [OC]: Negative. Whatever it is, it seems to just want to hold us here.
