l thought weapons were forbidden

on this planet.


l can't believe you'd kill me

for a field of empty holes.

All I have.

Your pain runs deep.

-What do you know of my pain?

-Let us explore it together.

Each man hides a secret pain.

lt must be exposed and reckoned with.

lt must be dragged from the darkness

and forced into the light.

Share your pain.

Share your pain with me.

And gain strength from the sharing.

Where did you get this power?

The power was within you.

l feel as if a weight has been lifted

from my heart.

How can I repay you for this miracle?

-Join my quest.

-What is it you seek?

What you seek.

What all men have sought

since time began.

The ultimate knowledge.

To find it, we'll need a starship.

A starship?

There are no starships on Nimbus lll.

Perhaps I have a way to bring one here.

But how?

Have faith, my friend.

There are more of us than you know.

You're a Vulcan.

"You'll have a great time, Bones.

You'll enjoy your shore leave.

"You'll be able to relax."

You call this relaxing?

l'm a nervous wreck.

lf l'm not careful, I'll end up talking

to myself.

Greetings, Captain.

Spock! What are you doing

in this neck of the woods?

-l have been monitoring your progress.

-l'm flattered.

Twelve hundred points of interest

in Yosemite and you pick me.

l regret to inform you that the record

for free-climbing El Capitan

is in no danger of being broken.

l'm not trying to break any records.

l'm doing this 'cause I enjoy it.

Not to mention the most important

reason for climbing a mountain.

And that is?

Because it's there.


l do not think you realise the gravity

of your situation.

On the contrary.

Gravity is foremost on my mind.

Look, l'm trying to make an ascent here.

Why don't you go pester Dr McCoy

for a while?

l believe that Dr McCoy

is not in the best of moods.

Goddamn irresponsible. . .

Playing games with life.

Concentration is vital.

You must be one with the rock.

Spock, I appreciate your concern,

but if you don't stop distracting me,

l'm liable to be one to

fall !

Oh, my God.

Perhaps "because it is there"

is not sufficient reason

for climbing the mountain.

l'm hardly in a position to disagree.

Hi, Bones. Mind if we drop in for dinner?

Your dream can become a reaIity.

The Paradise Inn.

We have spared no expense

to create the cIosest thing to paradise

in paradise... City, that is.

Gentlemen, l'm Caithlin Dar.

Oh, yeah.

Our new Romulan representative.

Welcome to Paradise City, my dear,

capital of the so-called

planet of galactic peace.

l'm St John Talbot,

the Federation representative

here on Nimbus lll.

My charming companion here is

the Klingon consul, Korrd.

l expect that's Klingon for "Hello."

Won't you come in, my dear?

Twenty years ago,

our three governments agreed

to develop this planet together.

-A new age was born.

-Our new age died a quick death.

And the settlers we conned

into coming here,

they were the dregs of the galaxy.

lmmediately took

to fighting amongst themselves.

We forbad them weapons,

and they soon began to fashion

their own.

Well, then it appears l've arrived

just in time.

We have spared no expense

to create the cIosest thing to...

Get away from that transmitter!




Consider yourselves my prisoners.

Prisoners? We're already prisoners

here on this worthless lump of rock.

What possible value

could we be to you?

Nimbus lll may be a worthless

lump of rock,

but it does have one unique treasure.

lt's the only place in the entire galaxy

that has the three of you.

l don't know who you are,

or what you want, but I can tell you this.

Our governments will stop at nothing

to ensure our safety.

That's exactly what l'm counting on.

U.S.S. Enterprise,

shakedown cruise report.

I think this new ship was put together

by monkeys.

Oh, she's got a fine engine,

but haIf the doors won't open.

And guess whose job it is

to make it right?

Borgus Frat.

"Let's see what she's got,"

said the Captain.

And then we found out, didn't we?

l know you'll whip her into shape,

Scotty. You always do.

Uhura, I thought you were on leave.

And I thought we were supposed to be

going together.

Oh, I cannot leave her now

when she needs me the most.

l had a feeling

you would say something like that.

So I brought us dinner.

Oh, lassie, you're the most

understanding woman I know.

Red... Red... Red aIert.

-Red aIert.

-l just fixed that damn thing.

-Red... Red... Red aIert.

-Turn it off, will you?

Red aIert. Red aIert. This is a red aIert.

Enterprise acknowledge.

This is Enterprise. ldentify yourself.

Enterprise, this is Starfleet.

We have a priority seven situation

in the NeutraI Zone.

Stand by, Starfleet.

-Scotty, this is for real.

-They can't be serious.

The ship's in pieces and we've got less

than a skeleton crew aboard.

Starfleet, are you aware

of our current status?

Current status understood.

Stand by to copy operationaI orders

and recaII key personneI.

Admit it. We're lost.

All right, we're lost.

But we're making good time.

-Commander SuIu, come in, pIease.

-l don't believe this.

Commander Sulu here.

Bad news, gentlemen.

Shore leave's been cancelled.

Rescued at last!

Return to prearranged coordinates

for pickup.

Don't tell them you're lost.

You'll never live it down.

ls there a problem, gentlemen?

Yes, we've been caught in a. . .
