Discussion in 'Star Trek - The Original & Animated Series' started by Santa Garrus, Jun 24, 2012.
MULHALL: Who you hardly know. Almost a stranger to you.
MCCOY: I will not peddle flesh. I'm a physician.
MULHALL: A physician? In contrast to what we are, you are a prancing, savage medicine man. You dare defy one you should be on your knees worshipping? I could destroy you with a single thought.
(McCoy is suddenly writhing in pain as he is surrounded by flames.)
MULHALL: ..Stop! Sargon was right. The temptations within a living body are too great. Forgive me.
SARGON: I am pleased, my beloved. It is good you have found the truth yourself.
MULHALL: Sargon? Where are you? I thought you destroyed by Henoch.
SARGON: I have power even Henoch does not suspect, beloved.
MULHALL: Yes. Yes, I see. I understand. Just as we would have placed our consciousness within robots, Sargon has placed his into your vessel.
MULHALL: Doctor, leave us. Sargon has a plan. We have much work to do.
(McCoy leaves the room, and the door shuts and locks behind him. The ship shakes as he activates his desk monitor.)
MCCOY: This is Sickbay. Get me-
(The door opens, and Chapel walks out, staring blankly ahead.)
MCCOY: Nurse Chapel, what in the devil?
(He goes back into the ward.)
MCCOY: Jim? Are you all right?
Kirk: Yes, I'm fine Bones.
MULHALL: She is now with Sargon, Doctor. I'm Ann Mulhall, back in my own body.
(Then we see the three blackened and broken spheres.)
MCCOY: Jim, the receptacles. Spock's consciousness was in one of them.
Kirk: It was necessary.
MCCOY: What are you talking about? There is no Spock to return to his body. You've killed a loyal officer, your best friend.
Kirk: Bones, prepare a hypo. The fastest, deadliest poison to Vulcans. Spock's consciousness is gone. We must kill his body, the thing in it.
(Uhura is screaming in terror before collapsing across her console. Chapel is standing rigid by the Captain's chair.)
SPOCK: Must I make an example of you, too, Helm?
(Kirk, Mulhall and McCoy enter.)
SPOCK: Pain, Captain. And you, my dear?
(As Kirk and Mulhall double over, McCoy dashes to Spock's side, ready to inject him.)
SPOCK: Fortunately, Doctor, I know every thought of every mind around me. See? Take the hypo from him. And inject him with it.
(But she injects Spock/Henoch instead! He leaps from his seat.)
SPOCK: Fools. I'll simply transfer to another place, another body. Sargon! No, Sargon, please. Let me. Let me transfer.
(He falls to the floor and his victims are freed from their pain.)
^ (Does this all count as "a single" line? Without interruption by another character, after all.)
(I think it does)
Kirk: Spock. My friend Spock. If there'd only been another way.
SARGON [OC]: I could not allow your sacrifice of one so close to you.
(Lights dim and glow, then Chapel wobbles.)
