    BALOK [OC]: Your recorder marker has been destroyed. You have been examined. Your ship must be destroyed. We make assumption you have a deity or deities or some such beliefs which comfort you. We therefore grant you ten Earth time periods, known as minutes, to make preparations.

    SPOCK: Might be interesting to see what they look like if I can locate where that voice is coming from. (McCoy and Scotty step off the turbolift)

    Kirk: Captain to crew. Those of you who have served for long on this vessel have encountered alien lifeforms. You know that the greatest danger facing us is ourselves, an irrational fear of the unknown. There's no such thing as the unknown, only things temporarily hidden, temporarily not understood. In most cases, we have found that intelligence capable of a civilization is capable of understanding peaceful gestures. Surely a lifeform advanced enough for space travel is advanced enough to eventually understand our motives. All Decks, standby. Captain out. Ship to Ship.

    KIRK: This is the Captain of the USS Enterprise. We came seeking friendship but we have no wish to trespass. To demonstrate our goodwill, our vessel will now return the way it came. We (humming noise) Lay in a course ahead, Mister Bailey.
