8A INT. SPACEDOCK OBSERVATION ROOM (VFX-I) 8A
The people are still applauding and we can see that they are looking out
over the ship in its berth.

The great ship sits in spacedock.
9INT. ENTERPRISE-B- BRIDGE9
Close on a set of turbolift doors as they slide open to reveal Kirk,
Scotty and Chekov. A bright light shines into their faces and they
react. Move to reveal that the bright light is coming from a futuristic
camera with a small bank of lights attached to it. The camera is a
holographic recorder with two lenses and is worn on an operator's head.
There are four JOURNALISTS clustered in front of the turbolift- one
associated with the camera, the others using PADDs to make notations.
Also clustered around the door are the bridge crew of the
Enterprise-B.Everyone is applauding as Kirk and the others blink under
the bright lights and ENTER the Bridge.
Captain Kirk, how does it feel to be back on the Enterprise Bridge=8A?
Captain, can I have a minute? Captain Scott, do you have any comment on?
CAPTAIN JOHN HARRIMAN pushes through the crowd.
Excuse me, excuse me=8A there will be plenty of time for questions
The journalists edge away, and the cameraman moves to get a good angle.
(cont'd, to all)
I'm Captain John Harriman. I'd like to welcome you all aboard.
It's our pleasure.
Harriman is young, confident, eager. This is his first command and he
takes it very seriously.
I just want you to know how excited we all are to have a group of living
legends with us on our maiden voyage. (beat) I remember reading about
your missions when I was in grade school.
The original Enterprise officers all stop and give him a look. Harriman
looks a little embarrassed- he didn't mean to insult them. But Kirk
gives him a little smile, lets it roll off.
