    KIRK: You will proceed from level to level, checking out every foot, every opening. You are searching for some sort of creature which is highly resistant to phaser fire. Phasers will be set on maximum, and remember this. Fifty people have died. I want no more deaths.

    KIRK: The creature may or may not attack on sight. However, you must. It is vitally important we get this installation back into production.

    GIOTTO: Aye, aye, sir. May I ask if you have reason to suspect this creature may be on that level?

    Kirk: It's one of the possibilities we've discussed. (to Vanderberg) I want your people to stay on the top level, together at a safe place.

    (The Starfleet people walk carefully along wonderfully smooth floors with just the occasional piece of equipment strewn around. Spock stops to use his tricorder on a section of the tunnel wall.)

    KIRK: Mister Spock? Find something?
