    KIRK: (looking at a car advert) The Jupiter Eight. Conventional internal combustion engine. You were right about the smog. But the Jupiter Eight? Mars toothpaste. Neptune bath salts.

    ]SEPTIMUS: Taken from the names of false gods. When I was a senator, I worshiped them too, but I heard the words of the sun. I became a Brother. For that, they made me a slave.

    KIRK: Septimus, we need your help. We must go into the city. We know that one of our missing friends was seen there recently.

    KIRK: We can't do that. Perhaps you know his name. Merik. Captain Merik.

    (General consternation and animosity from the other slaves...)

    SPOCK: Captain, a logical question, if I may. Septimus, how many years ago did Merikus become your first citizen?

    KIRK: Septimus, wherever we may be from, you must believe that it is one of our most important laws that none of us interfere with the affairs of others. If Captain Merik is Merikus, then he has violated that law, and he must be taken away and punished. Will you help us get to the truth of all this?
