6:30 pm
captain's log. stardate... unknown. we are trapped in a savage, parallel universe from which we must escape within four hours, or i will face a death sentence at mr. spock's hands. let's drink a toast to spock-- the only man aboard with the decency to warn you, and he'll die for it. you'll never find another man like him. i don't intend to kill him. are you going to act against the halkans before the deadline? no. but i'll avoid killing spock. just get him out of the way, he and his men. i'll get out of his way. shall i activate the tantalus field?
6:31 pm
s. i hate this thing. it's not that bad. of course not. it made you captain. how many enemies have you simply wiped out of existence by the touch of a button? 50, 100? now, i always thought that was funny-- the great, powerful captain kirk who owes everything to some unknown alien scientist and a plundered laboratory. well, if you don't take advantage of your opportunities... you don't rise to the command of a starship... or even higher. that magnificent mind of his.
6:32 pm
i press it and he dies. now-- you really mean it. it doesn't matter. if spock fails his order, he'll be killed anyway. i'll see to it that the circumstances of his failure will clear him. you're not even afraid of starfleet command. can your scheme bring you that much power... so quickly? and what about me? how does marlena fit in?
6:33 pm
scotty. scotty here, sir. we have to get out of here within three hours. spock has orders to kill me unless i complete the military mission. we've got another deadline too, sir. explain. the two-way matter transmission affected the local field density between the universes, and it's increasing. we've got to move fast. how fast? a half-hour at the most. we couldn't get out of here in a century. we're ready to bridge power from the engines to the transporter. you've got to get down there and free the board so we can lock in. now, give me about 10 minutes. i've got to complete a few more computations. all right. i'll be in the transporter room in 10 minutes. i'll meet you in the sick bay afterward. aye, sir. computer... ready.
6:34 pm
a security research is in progress. who is conducting the research? the captain and mr. scott. what is the nature of the research? program is classified under voice index log. [beep beep beep beep] [beep beep beep beep] why are you monitoring my communications, mr. sulu? my security boards detected extensive use of computer, mr. spock. i was about to inform you. it's not hard to guess the nature of your order from starfleet command. i suggest a...connection. the captain suspects. he's working on escape or defense. that is my concern. correct. it's your play.
6:35 pm
and you know how captain kirk's enemies have a...habit of... disappearing. if i am successful, you see yourself a step nearer to the captaincy. i do not want to command the "enterprise," but if it should befall me, i suggest you remember that my operatives would avenge my death, and some of them...
6:36 pm
6:37 pm
oiling my traps, darling. i'm afraid i'm a little out of practice. maybe that's what happened to us, hmm? it's...very hard for a working officer to shine as a woman every minute... and you demand perfection. i've never seen perfection... but no woman could come closer to it. i remember when you used to talk that way. i still do.
6:38 pm
i've got to go. ship's business? an important task on the crew deck? well... i guess it's over. commander kenno will take me temporarily. he has made that quite clear. i'll call a yeoman to help me with my things. you don't have to do that. are you feeling sorry for me? do i see hesitation in your eyes... about anything? i want one thing, captain. transfer me. on the "enterprise," i am humiliated! on another ship, i can hunt fresh game. i've got my rank, and-- don't i?
6:39 pm
n if i have to go through every officer in the fleet. you could. i simply meant... that you could be anything you want to be. it's...been a long time since you've... kissed me like that. you're a stranger. mercy to the halkans. mercy to spock... to me.
6:40 pm
you're the captain's woman... until he says you're not. uhura. yes, captain. scotty's signal should be coming through any moment now. you know what to do. i've got a pretty good idea, sir. keep sulu's attention off that board. i'll do my best, sir.
6:41 pm
[beep beep] you aren't very persistent, mr. sulu. the game has rules. you're ignoring them. i protest, and you come back. you didn't come back. now you're making sense. i was... getting bored. mm-hmm? of course this isn't the time.
6:42 pm
again. you take a lot of chances, lieutenant. so do you, mister. so do you. take over for me. mr. scott, all clear. on my way to sick bay. now it's up to the captain. you'll please restrict your movements, captain. what are you doing? are you going to shoot me now, spock? i thought i had until dawn. i shall make that decision.
6:43 pm
cal manner. i want to know why. shoot. you're wasting time. i shall not waste time with you. you're too inflexible, too disciplined once you've made up your mind. but dr. mccoy has a plenitude of human weaknesses-- sentimental, soft. you may not tell me what i want to know, but he will. you're running a big risk, spock. i have the phaser, captain, as so many of your opponents have in the past. if you please... sick bay. yes, of course. the entire landing party. captain, stand over there.
6:44 pm
how much time, scotty? hardly 15 minutes, sir. the field density between the two universes is starting to close very fast. mccoy: help me get him on the table. well, come on. help me get him on the table.
6:45 pm
everything laid in, scotty--the time lag so the operator can get into the transporter chamber? all laid in, sir. come on, mccoy! we're taking a chance of not getting back home. we'll get home. this won't take long. 14 minutes. we've got to go! will you shut up? i'd like to save his life! do you want me to stop, jim? it'll only take a minute. he is very much like our own mr. spock, isn't he? you've got that minute. a little time, he'll live. what is this, mr. sulu? mr. spock has orders to kill you, captain.
6:46 pm
apparently. you will also appear to have killed him... after a fierce battle. regrettable, but it will leave me in command. ? think of your fellow man. ? ? lend him a helping hand. ? ? put a little love in your heart. ? ? take a good look around... ? ? ...and if you're lookin' down, ? ? put a little love in your heart. ? ?put a little love in your heart.?
6:47 pm
million dollars
6:48 pm
6:49 pm
captain, we have barely got 10 minutes! let's go, bones. i can't let him die, jim. look, you get down to the transporter room, make sure it's clear. i'll be there in five minutes. no longer. i guarantee it.
6:50 pm
our minds are merging, doctor. our minds are one. i feel what you feel. i know what you know. a friend. activate the transporter. you saved us back at sick bay with the tantalus field. take me with you. i can't. i'm sorry. our power is balanced for four. there's no guarantee that we'll make it with five. all could die.
6:51 pm
but there are only three of you. one is coming. i'd help you if i could, marlena. believe that. if you kill us, you'll still stay. where's mccoy? time, scotty. five minutes, sir. do you know what they'll do to me? the power's cut, sir. they're on to us! auxiliary. it's available. can you bridge to your setup? i can get us the power, but the automatic setting is linked to the transporter main. if we bypass,
6:52 pm
one of us will have to stay. i'll stay, captain. get to the transporter chamber. you, too, uhura. jim! that's an order, scotty. aye, captain. what about me? mccoy. i cut the transporter power. it was necessary to delay your beam out until i could arrive. take him. engineering, reactivate main transporter circuits. you're a man of integrity in both universes, mr. spock. you must return to your universe. i must have my captain back. i shall operate the transporter.
6:53 pm
ve something to say. how long before the halkan prediction of galactic revolt is realized? approximately 240 years. the inevitable outcome? the empire shall be overthrown, of course. the illogic of waste, mr. spock, the waste of lives, potential, resources, time. i submit to you that your empire is illogical because it cannot endure. i submit that you are illogical to be a willing part of it. you have one minute and 23 seconds. predictable, beneficial, doesn't logic demand that you be a part of it? one man cannot summon the future. but one man can change the present. be the captain of this "enterprise," mr. spock. find a logical reason for sparing the halkans. and make it stick. push till it gives. you can defend yourself better than any man in the fleet. captain, get in the chamber! what about it, spock?
6:54 pm
in my cabin is a device that will make you invincible. indeed? what will it be? past or future? tyranny or freedom? it's up to you. it is time. in every revolution, there's one man with a vision. captain kirk,
6:55 pm
spock. welcome home, captain. you won't see these folks at the post office. they have businesses to run. they have passions to pursue. how do they avoid trips to the post office? mail letters, ship packages, all the services of the post office right on your computer. get a 4 week trial, plus $100 in extras including postage and a digital scale. go to
6:56 pm
what i don't understand is how were you able to identify our counterpart so quickly?
6:57 pm
it was for them as barbarians to behave like civilized men. i assume they returned to their "enterprise" at the same time you appeared here. probably. however, that jim kirk will find a few changes, if i read my spocks correctly. jim, i think i liked him with a beard better. it gave him character. of course almost any change would be a distinct improvement. kirk: what worries me is the easy way his counterpart fitted into that other universe. of a pirate at heart. indeed, gentlemen. may i point out that i had an opportunity to observe your counterparts here quite closely. they were brutal, savage, unprincipled, uncivilized, treacherous-- in every way, splendid examples of homo sapiens, the very flower of humanity. i found them quite refreshing. i'm not sure, but i think we've been insulted.
6:58 pm
captain kirk. lieutenant, uh, lieutenant... marlena moreau. i was just assigned last week. all right, lieutenant. carry on. u've met her before, captain? uh, why do you ask? your reaction-- one of...recognition. oh, no. no, no. we haven't met before... exactly. she just seemed... a nice, likable girl. i think we could become friends.
6:59 pm
