Mara: I will take you to Kang. I will add my voice to yours.
SCOTT: I wouldn't trust her, Captain.
KIRK: We can't get through the Klingon defences in time, unless. Spock. Intra-ship beaming from one section to another. It's possible?
Spock: It has rarely been done because of the danger involved. Pinpoint accuracy is required. If the transportee should materialise inside a solid object, a deck or wall.
SCOTT: Even if it could work, she may be leading you into a trap.
KIRK: We're all in a trap. This is the only way out.
SCOTT: We'll go with you.
KIRK: No. That'd start the final battle. I believe her. Prepare the transporter. We'll wait for your signal.
(Kirk and Mara leave.)
SCOTT: But she can't guarantee that Kang will stop to listen, right, Mister Spock?
SPOCK: No one can guarantee the actions of another.
SPOCK [OC]: Your automatic setting is laid in, Captain.
SPOCK: When transporter is energized, you will have eight seconds to get to the pads.
KIRK: I hope your computations are correct, Mister Spock.
(Kirk energizes the transporter and heads for the pad)
Spock: You will know in seven point nine seconds, Captain.
(Kirk and Mara beam away and materialize in engineering)
Kang: Mara, you're alive, and you bring us a prize.
MARA: Kang, wait. He's come alone, unarmed. He must talk to you.
Kang: Brave Captain, what about?
MARA: No! Listen to him. We are all in danger.
(The weird light is glowing blood red.)
Kirk: Mara. Before you start killing, give me one minute.
(Kang swings his sword at Kirk's head, and Mara intervenes.)
Mara: Kang, don't!
Kang: What have they done to you, Mara? Are you out of your mind? What have they done to you? (sees the torn tunic) I see why the human beast did not kill you.
