    KIRK: 48 hours is better than nothing. Gather what you need and beam down here with it.

    Scotty (cont.): I'll be right down. Scott out.

    KIRK: We'll have to, Chief. The alternative is to evacuate all you people up to the Enterprise. A dozen planets depend on you for pergium for their reactor. They're already screaming. Reactors closing down, life support systems

    VANDERBERG: I'm concerned with my people right here, Kirk, they're being murdered. You find that monster and kill it.

    SPOCK: The missing pump wasn't taken by accident. It was the one piece of equipment absolutely essential for the operation of the reactor.

    (Spock goes over to the silicon nodule on the desk, and contemplates it.)

    KIRK: What's that?

    SPOCK: Life as we know it is universally based on some combination of carbon compounds; but what if life exists based on another element? For instance, silicon.
