KIRK: I am Sargon.
MCCOY: Where's our captain? Where's Jim Kirk?
KIRK: He is unharmed. I have taken his body to demonstrate
MCCOY: (drawing his phaser) I won't go along with this. Back to where you were, Sargon, or whatever you are.
SPOCK: And if he refuses, Doctor, what do you propose to do with your phaser? That is still Jim's body.
(Kirk convulses briefly, and the sphere has dimmed a lot.)
KIRK: Lungs filled with air again. To see again. Heart pumping, arteries surging with blood again. A half a million years. To be again. Your captain has an excellent body, Doctor McCoy. I compliment you both on the condition in which you maintained it.
SPOCK: What are your plans for it? Can you exchange places again when you wish?
KIRK: Have no fear. Your captain is quite unharmed, although his mind generates insufficient energy for him to speak from there as I do.
MULHALL: Yes, I have the same readings.
MCCOY: Are you aware of what's happening to his body? Heart action doubled, temperature a hundred and four degrees?
MULHALL: He'll die if you don't leave his body. Soon!
SPOCK: What is it you want of us?
KIRK: In the next room, there are other receptacles. The other two of us that survived. You, Doctor Ann Mulhall, and you, Mister Spock, we require your bodies also. We must have Captain Kirk and you so that we may live again.
(There are a group of boxes on the wall, containing spheres. Only two are alight.)
KIRK: Even for us, a half million years is almost too long to wait. Two others still survive. Henoch and Thalassa. Thalassa, my Thalassa. I am pleased you survived with me. Forgive me. It has been so very long.
SPOCK: When the struggle came which devastated your planet
KIRK: Only the best minds were chosen to survive. Thalassa, my wife, as you may have guessed. Henoch, from the other side. Realising our mistake, we attempted to perpetuate both sides. We built this chamber here in order to preserve our essence in this fashion.
KIRK: We knew the seed that we had planted on other planets would take root, that one day you would build vessels as we did, and one day you would come here.
SPOCK: These others, they were stored differently than you, but it was your task to remain in the receptacle out there KIRK: and search the heavens with my mind, probing, waiting, probing. And then one day my mind touched your vessel and brought you here.
^ you accidentally posted two lines there!
MULHALL: So you could steal our bodies from us?
