    So the idea of this game is to provide clues for a particular quote, so you really need to know your dialogue for this one. To be fair, ideally only famous or significant dialogue is appropriate, so simple 'yes Sir' or 'engage' isn't something we want here. You don't need to know the episode necessarily, but if you know the quote, you will likely know the episode.

    Let's see how it goes...

    So, I will start...

    Clue # 1
    These people are not listening, already set their minds on something.

    Kirk to the Organian Council: "Gentlemen, I have no great love for you, your planet, your culture. Despite that, Mister Spock and I are going to go out there and quite probably die, in an attempt to show you that there are some things worth dying for."

    Nice guess, however:

    Clue # 3
    These people are no strangers to me. Perhaps that's why it hurts more.

    Close. It *is* Kirk.

    Clue # 5
    I literally say one line at the end of the conversation, which pretty much sums up the conversation.

    Clue # 7
    My friend attempts to diffuse the situation, but it's clear the others have decided on their own viewpoints. My final words before I leave the room, sum this up.

    I don't know if it's ambiguous. It's obviously a move in three-D chess and a code to be answered in order to prove that everything is Ok. It was quite insightful of Kirk to set that up the one time when it proved to be useful!
