- I, of course, appreciate your concern.

But absolutely no assistance

of any sort is required.

Oh, the red-carpet treatment, huh?

Dr. Morbius, my orders are to survey

the situation on Altair-4.

Let me repeat.

I'm in no sort of difficulty here.

Your best procedure will be

to turn back at once without landing.

- Sorry, sir?

- Lf you set down on this planet...

...I warn you that I cannot be answerable

for the safety of your ship or your crew.

If you'll just supply me

with landing coordinates.

Dr. Morbius,

I require landing coordinates.

Very well, but I wash my hands

of all responsibility.

- You have standard charts?

- Yes, sir.

You may come in at 83- 17-4 North...

...148-21 West.

Thank you.

It's right back there in the desert.


I strongly urge you to reconsider.

Please permit me to recommend...

Something funny down there, skipper.

- Okay, Jerry, I'll take her in.

- Aye, sir.

Attention. Captain to crew,

stand by to reverse polarity.

Standard class-A security

will be maintained upon landing.

And until further notice,

all hands will wear side arms.

That is all.

- Artificial gravity off.

- Grav off.

- Half flux.

- Half flux.

- Cut primary coils.

- Primaries cut, sir.

All clear, sir.

Look at the color of that sky.

- Yeah, but I'll still take blue.

- I don't know.

I think a man could get used to this

and grow to love it.

- Bosun.

- Aye, sir.

- You can assemble a tractor.

- Aye, sir.

Better check

the command mike, skipper.

- The command mike, sir.

- Oh, yeah. Good idea. Chief.

- Sir?

- You're in command now, Quinn.

- You keep right at those instruments.

- Aye, aye, sir.

Hey, what's this dust coming?

Looks like we're being met.

- Bosun.

- Aye, aye, sir.

- Hold the tractor.

- Aye, aye, sir.
