COGLEY: On a ship of this size, could a man evade such a search?
COGLEY: Gentlemen, I submit to you that Lieutenant Commander Ben Finney is not dead.
[Later on the Bridge]
Stone: Mister Cogley, we are waiting for proof of the extraordinary statement you made in the briefing room.
COGLEY: You shall have it, but first I need the co-operation of this court in conducting an experiment. Captain Kirk.
Kirk: Gentlemen, for the purposes of this experiment, it'll be necessary for all personnel, except for members of the court and the command crew, to leave the ship. I am ordering all others to report to the transporter room.
COGLEY: Including myself, sir.
Stone: This court is by no means adjourned, Mister Cogley.
COGLEY: I have an errand ashore of vital importance to the purpose of this court, and I will return.
STONE: Very well.
Cogley: Thank you, sir.
(Leaves with the spare crew members.)
STONE: Captain, are you maintaining an engine crew aboard?
KIRK: Our impulse engines have been shut down. We'll maintain orbit by momentum.
Krasnovsky: And when the orbit decays?
KIRK: We hope to be finished long before that.
(A little later)
KIRK: Ready, Mr. Spock?
Spock: Affirmative, Captain.
KIRK: Gentlemen, this computer has an auditory sensor. It can, in effect, hear sounds. By installing a booster, we can increase that capability on the order of one to the fourth power. The computer should bring us every sound occurring on the ship.
(Toilet flushes on Deck Three)
Crewman [OC]: All personnel have left the ship as ordered, sir.
KIRK: Dr. McCoy? All right, Mr. Spock.
(A cacophony of heartbeats comes over the bridge speakers.)
KIRK: Turn it down a little. Gentlemen, that sound is caused by the heartbeats of all the people on board the ship. Dr. McCoy will use this white sound device [which looks remarkably like a 20th century microphone ] to mask out each person's heartbeat so that it will be eliminated from the sounds we are hearing.
