They are tiny, insect-like shapes moving still CLOSER

to the Luminescent Cloud, so large now that it begins

to dominate all space behind.

12 INT. KLINGON BRIDGE - TACTICAL GRID - CAPTAIN AND 12

EXEC (O)

The growing nearness and enormous size of the Cloud

also reflected on the Tactical Grid, somehow more

awesome by this schematic view. The Captain gestures

the order to "FIRE."

13 EXT. SPACE - ANGLE ON KLINGON VESSEL - TORPEDO HATCH (S) 13

The BRILLIANT PHOTON BLOBS of the torpedoes spurt from

the tubes.

14 ANGLE ON KLINGON VESSEL (S) 14

A deadly PHOTON TORPEDO pattern racing away from the

Klingon and toward the Luminescent glow in the distance.

15 INT. KLINGON BRIDGE - TACTICAL GRID (O) 15

Three torpedoes are heading directly toward the Cloud.

Suddenly they glow briefly and disappear long before

they reach their intended target.

16 INT. KLINGON BRIDGE - CAPTAIN AND EXEC 16

incredulous that their torpedoes have disappeared

without a trace.

17 EXT SPACE - THE CLOUD - THREE KLINGON SHIPS (S) 17

as the second and third ships launch torpedoes toward

the color-flaring surface of the cloud. This time we

have an outside, real VIEW of the torpedoes glowing

brightly and then disappearing with no effect.

18 INT. KLINGON BRIDGE (O) 18

The Klingon crew grim, desperate, watching a BRIGHT

STACCATO BLIP OF POWER from within the LUMINESCENCE.

KLINGON CAPTAIN:

(quickly; Klingonese)

Full force fields; evasive

maneuvers.
