Kirk: Helm, give us warp speed.
SULU: Warp one, sir.
SPOCK: Radiation at the tolerance level.
Sulu: Warp two sir. (a moment) Speed is now warp three.
Spock: Radiation passing the tolerance level, entering lethal zone.
BAILEY: Range fifty one meters and still closing, sir.
Kirk: Phaser crew stand ready.
Bailey: Phaser crew reports ready, Sir.
(The cube closes on Enterprise)
Spock: Growing, we can take only a few more seconds of this...
KIRK: Lock phasers on target. (a beat as Bailey freezes) Mr. Bailey, lock phasers!
Bailey: Phasers locked on target, sir. At point blank range and closing.
KIRK: Fire main Phasers!
[Explosion followed by camera shaking and great piano music]
Captain's Log, stardate 1514.0. The cube has been destroyed. Ship's damage minor but my next decision, major. Probe on ahead or turn back.
Spock: Nothing, Captain. No contacts, no objects in any direction.
Kirk: Care to speculate on what we'll find if we go on ahead?
Spock: Speculate? No. Logically, we'll discover the intelligence that sent out the cube.
Kirk: Intelligence different from ours or superior?
Spock: Probably both. And if you're asking the logical decision to make...
Kirk: No, I'm not. The mission of the Enterprise is to seek out and contact alien life.
Spock: Has it occurred to you that there's a certain... inefficiency... in constantly questioning me on things you've already made your mind up about?
Kirk: It gives me emotional security. Navigator, set a course ahead.
