Damn it, man! That was our

ride! You just stunned our ride!

Oh, great.





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.


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.

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!



They're trying to kill us!

They're trying to kill us, Jim!

I'll see you in 90 seconds.

Do it, do it!



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!


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.


- Uhura! You ready to swim?

- I'm ready.



Jim! The beach is that way!

I know!

We're not going to the beach!

Oh, no, no, no!



I hate this!

I know you do!



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.







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.


I have activated the device, Captain.

When the countdown is complete,

the reaction should

render the volcano inert.

Yeah, and that's

gonna render him inert!

Do we have use of the transporters?

- Negative, sir.

- Not with these magnetic fields.

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...

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.
