(MAN PANTING)

(NATIVES YELLING)

(YELLING CONTINUES)

- (SCREAMS)

- (SCREECHES)

Damn it, man! That was our

ride! You just stunned our ride!

Oh, great.

(NATIVE YELLS)

Run!

(NATIVES ULULATING)

(SPEAKING LOCAL LANGUAGE)

What the hell did you take?

I have no idea,

but they were bowing to it.

Kirk to Shuttle One.

Locals are out of the kill zone.

You are clear. Repeat.

Spock, get in there, neutralize the

volcano and let's get out of here.

(RUMBLING)

We have to do this now!

I told the Captain

the shuttle wasn't built

for this kind of heat.

Captain, did the indigenous

life forms see you?

No, Mr. Spock, they did not.

The Prime Directive clearly states

there can be no interference

with the internal development

of alien civilizations.

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!

You're good.

SULU:
If we're gonna do this,

we've got to do it now!

This ash is killing our coils.

You sure you don't want me

to go instead?

That would be highly illogical

as I am already outfitted...

Spock, I was kidding.

- You got this.

- Guys! We have to go! Now!

- (BOTH PANTING)

- (NATIVES YELLING)

They're trying to kill us!

They're trying to kill us, Jim!

I'll see you in 90 seconds.

Do it, do it!

(BREATHING HEAVILY)

AUTOMATED MALE VOICE:

Prerequisite change, 2-7-3...

I can't hold this position.

Spock, I've got to pull you back up.

Negative. This is our only

chance to save this species.

If this volcano erupts, the planet dies.

Pull him back up. Now!

(GRUNTS)

UHURA:
Spock, are you okay?

I am,

surprisingly, alive. Stand by.

We have to get him back.

I'll suit up. I'm gonna go down.

We have to abandon the shuttle.

- We can't just leave him, Sulu!

- We don't have a choice!

Uhura, I'm sorry.

Spock, we're going back

to the Enterprise.

We'll get you out of there.

Captain, I'm ditching the shuttle.

You've got to make it

to the Enterprise on your own.

KIRK:
Wonderful!

- Uhura! You ready to swim?

- I'm ready.

(NATIVES CLAMORING)

Jim!

Jim! The beach is that way!

KIRK:
I know!

We're not going to the beach!

BONES:
Oh, no, no, no!

(NATIVES SPEAKING

WITH REVERENCE)

I hate this!

I know you do!

(BOTH PANTING)

(BOTH SCREAM)

Do you have any idea

how ridiculous it is

to hide a starship

on the bottom of the ocean?

We've been down here since last night!

The salt water's gonna ruin the...

Scotty! Where's Spock?

Still in the volcano, sir.

(SIGHS)

(BREATHING HEAVILY)

(GROANING)

(NATIVES EXCLAIMING

IN SURPRISE)

(SCREAMING)

CHEKOV:
Captain on the bridge!

Lieutenant, do we have

an open channel to Mr. Spock?

The heat's frying his comms,

but we still have contact.

Spock?

I have activated the device, Captain.

When the countdown is complete,

the reaction should

render the volcano inert.

BONES:
Yeah, and that's

gonna render him inert!

Do we have use of the transporters?

- Negative, sir.

- Not with these magnetic fields.

KIRK:
I need to beam Spock

back to the ship.

Give me one way to do it.

Maybe if we had a direct line of sight.

- If we got closer...

- SCOTTY:
Hold on, wee man!

You're talking about an active volcano!

Sir, if that thing erupts,

I cannae guarantee

we can withstand the heat!

I don't know that we can

maintain that kind of altitude.

Our shuttle was concealed

by the ash cloud,

but the Enterprise is too large.

If utilized in a rescue effort,

it would be revealed

to the indigenous species.

Spock, nobody knows

the rules better than you,

but there has got to be an exception.

None. Such action violates

the Prime Directive.

Shut up, Spock! We're trying

to save you, damn it!

Doctor, the needs of

the many outweigh the needs of the few.

Spock, we're talking about your life!

- SPOCK:
The rule cannot be broken...

- (LINE DISCONNECTS)

KIRK:
Spock!

Try to get him back online.

CHEKOV:
Ninety seconds

to detonations.

If Spock were here and I were there,

what would he do?

He'd let you die.

Spock!

You all right?

Captain, you let them see our ship.

(SIGHS) He's fine.

- UHURA:
Bridge to Captain Kirk.

- Yes, Lieutenant.

Is Commander Spock on board, sir?

- KIRK:
Safely and soundly.

- (RELIEVED SIGH)

Please notify him that his device

has successfully detonated.

KIRK:
You hear that?

Congratulations, Spock.

You just saved the world.

You violated the Prime Directive.

Oh, come on, Spock.

They saw us. Big deal.

(ALL CHATTERING EXCITEDLY)

I can save her.

What did you say?

Your daughter.

I can save her.

Who are you?

(LIVELY '90s HIP-HOP

(COMMUNICATOR BEEPING)

(PANTING)

- Oh, Jim. Come on, let it go.

- (MUTTERING)

Jim!

You're not actually gonna

answer that, are you?

KIRK:
Spock, I'm telling you,

this is why he called. I can feel it.

Your feeling aside,

I consider it highly unlikely

that we will be selected

for the new program.

Why else would Pike want to see us?

Forget about seniority.

They gave us the newest ship

in the fleet.

I mean, who else

are they gonna send out?

SPOCK:
I can think of

numerous possibilities.

A five-year mission, Spock!

That's deep space!

That's uncharted territory!

Think how incredible that's gonna be.

Hey, ladies. Jim Kirk.

- "Uneventful."

- KIRK:
Admiral?

It's the way you described the survey of

Nibiru in your captain's log.

Yes, sir, I didn't want to waste your time

going over the details.

Tell me more about this volcano.

Data says it was highly volatile.

If it were to erupt,

it would wipe out the planet.

Let's hope it doesn't, sir.

Something tells me it won't.

Well, sir, volatile is all relative.

Maybe our data was off.

Or maybe it didn't erupt

because Mr. Spock detonated

a cold fusion device

inside it right after a civilization

that's barely invented the wheel

happened to see a starship

rising out of their ocean!

That is pretty much how

you describe it, is it not?

- Admiral...

- You filed a report?

Why didn't you tell me?

I incorrectly assumed that you would be

truthful in your captain's log.

Yeah, I would have been

if I didn't have to save your life.

A fact for which I am

immeasurably grateful

and the very reason I felt it necessary

to take responsibility for the actions...

(SCOFFS)

Take responsibility, yeah.

That'd be so noble, pointy,

if you weren't also

throwing me under the bus.

"Pointy"? Is that

a derogatory reference to...

Gentlemen.

Starfleet's mandate is to explore and

observe, not to interfere.

Had the mission gone

according to plan, Admiral,

the indigenous species would never

have been aware of our interference.

That's a technicality.

I am Vulcan, sir.
