COGLEY: You did the right thing, but would you do it again?
KIRK: Given the same circumstances I would do the same thing without hesitation, because the steps I took in the order I took them were absolutely necessary if I were to save my ship. And nothing is more important than my ship.
COGLEY: Your witness, Miss Shaw.
SHAW: The prosecution does not wish to dishonor this man, but facts are facts. I must invite the attention of the court and Captain Kirk to this visual extract from the Enterprise computer log. Play back. What you are about to see is precisely what took place on the Enterprise bridge during the ion storm.
UHURA: Meteorology reports ion storm upcoming, Captain.
KIRK: We'll need somebody in the pod for readings.
SPOCK: Mr. Finney is top of duty roster, Captain.
Kirk: Post him.
SPOCK: Attention, Commander Finney, report to pod for reading on ion plates.
FINNEY [OC]: Message Received.
SPOCK: Officer posted, Captain.
(The ship suddenly wobbles)
Kirk: Stand by on alert status, Mister Spock.
HANSON: Approaching ion storm, sir.
KIRK: Warp factor one, Mr. Hanson.
Hanson: Warp one, sir.
(There's another sharp jerk, and Kirk presses a button on his chair panel.)
SHAW: Reverse. Stop. Go forward with magnification on the panel. Freeze that. Captain Kirk is now signalling a Yellow Alert. Go forward, normal view.
(On courtroom viewscreen.)
UHURA: Call from the pod, sir.
KIRK: Tie in.
FINNEY [OC]: Finney here, Captain. Ion readings in progress.
