    APPEL: You're all pretty tough, aren't you? Starship, phaser banks. You can't get your starship down in the tunnels.

    KIRK: I don't think we'll need to, Mister Appel. Mister Vanderberg, we'll need a complete subsurface chart of all the drifts, galleries and tunnels.

    SPOCK: But a geological oddity to say the least. Pure silicon?

    KIRK: The vast number of tunnels won't make our hunting any easier. Doc?

    McCoy: Well there are only fragments of bone and teeth left but the plants physician agrees with me. A chemical corrosion, almost as if he'd been thrown into a vat of extremely corrosive acid.

    SPOCK: (at the mine map) I've charted the positions of the deaths and acts of sabotage. Here, here, and here. If the times of these incidents are to be accepted as accurate, the creature would have to have moved at an incredible rate of speed.
