    FINNEY [OC]: Like you helped me all along? Kept me down--

    [Bridge]

    FINNEY [OC]: --Robbed me of my own command?

    [Engineering]

    FINNEY [OC]: I'm a good officer, as good as you. I've watched you for years. The great Captain Kirk.

    (We finally see Ben Finney, looking pretty strung out and plenty vengeful as he jabs a phaser into Kirk's back.)

    FINNEY: They told you to do it to me. You all conspired against me. You ruined me, but you won't do it anymore.

    (He disarms Kirk and throws the weapon away. Kirk turns to face him.)

    FINNEY: Oh, I wouldn't kill you, Captain. Your own death would mean too little to you, But your ship...

    Finney: You're out of power. I know the ship, too. The Enterprise should've been mine. You kept me from it.

    Finney: Innocent? Officers and gentlemen, Captains all. Except for Finney and his one mistake. A long time ago, but they don't forget.

    FINNEY [OC]: But they are to blame. All of them.

    FINNEY: Why shouldn't I? They killed me, didn't they? It's a fair trade.
