SULU: Sir, our speed is increasing. We're traveling at over warp eight.
KIRK: Mister Spock.
SPOCK: Since we've passed Mercury, the sun's pull on us has increased greatly. From here, we'll move even faster. And Captain, notice the chronometers. They've started backward. Minute by minute, the speed of time passage will now increase.
KIRK: Get your gear. Report to the transporter room. And Captain Christopher, you only have about fifteen years, so you'd better hurry.
(Christopher leaves, and time passes.)
SPOCK: Approaching breakaway point. On the countdown. Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one.
KIRK: Now, Mister Sulu. (the ship lurches sideways) More power, Mister Sulu.
SULU: It's maximum now, sir. She's fighting it.
(Then everyone's thrown forward)
SPOCK: We've broken free and heading back.
SULU: Gaining speed now, Captain. We're now at warp four, warp seven. Eight. Off the dial, sir.
SPOCK: Chronometers moving forward again, Captain.
KIRK: Do you have the chronometer reading and the co-ordinates to return Captain Christopher and the guard?
KIRK: Bridge to transporter room. Captain Christopher.
CHRISTOPHER: This is Christopher.
KIRK: We're coming up on Earth fast, Captain. Are you ready?
CHRISTOPHER [OC]: Everything A-OK.
CHRISTOPHER: Captain, thanks for the look ahead.
KIRK: Our pleasure, Captain. Bridge out.
(The blue planet grows larger on the viewscreen)
SPOCK: Twenty minutes, sir. It'll be close.
KIRK: Bridge to transporter room. Prepare to energize.
SPOCK: Ten minutes. Nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one.
