We have to do this now!

I told the Captain

the shuttle wasn't built

for this kind of heat.

SPOCK(IN SHUTTLE DRESSED IN HEAT PROOF SUIT): Captain, did the indigenous

life forms see you?

KIRK(STILL RUNNING THROUGH RED WOODS): No, Mr. Spock, they did not.

SPOCK:
The Prime Directive clearly states

there can be no interference

with the internal development

of alien civilizations.

KIRK:
I know what it says!

Which is why I'm running

through the jungle wearing a disguise!

Now drop off your super ice cube

and let's go! Kirk out!

UHURA:
(FINISHED DRESSING SPOCK) You're good.

SULU:
(COMING OVER TO SPOCK WHO HAS JUST OPENED A CASE WITH THE VOLCANO STOPPER INSIDE) If we're gonna do this,

we've got to do it now!

This ash is killing our coils.

UHURA:
(PUTTING SPOCK'S HELMET ON): You sure you don't want me

to go instead?

SPOCK:
That would be highly illogical

as I am already outfitted...

UHURA:
Spock, I was kidding. You got this.

SULU:
(FROM BACK IN COCKPIT) Guys! We have to go! Now!

(SCENE SWITCHES BACK TO MEN IN FORREST WHO ARE STILL RUNNING FROM THE YELLING NATIVES WHO BEGIN TO THROW SPEARS AT THEM)
