From "Star Trek: What Are Little Girls Made Of? (#1.7)" (1966)
Captain James T. Kirk: [referring to Ruk] He's an android? Like Brown?
Ruk: More complex than Brown. Much superior. I was left here by the Old Ones.
Dr. Roger Korby: Ruk was still tending the machinery when we arrived here. How many centuries?
[Ruk remains silent]
Dr. Roger Korby: Even Ruk doesn't know. With his help, with the records I could find, we built Brown.
Captain James T. Kirk: You've convinced me, Doctor. You've convinced me that you are dangerous.
[pushes over a table and makes a run for it]
