Quotes

Spock: Sir, there is a multi-legged creature crawling on your shoulder.

Scott: Open a channel, Lieutenant. This is the commander of the U.S.S. Enterprise. All cities and installations on Eminiar 7 have been located, identified, and fed into our fire control system. In one hour and forty-five minutes, the entire inhabited surface of your planet will be destroyed. You have that long to surrender your hostages.

Spock: Yeoman Tamura, you stay here and prevent this young lady from immolating herself. Knock her down and sit on her if necessary.

Spock: Ladies and gentlemen, please move quickly away from the chamber or you may be injured.

Ambassador Fox: What are you doing, Mr Spock?

Spock: Practicing a peculiar variety of diplomacy, sir.

Anan 7: Are those five hundred people of yours more important than the hundreds of millions of innocent people on Eminiar and Vendikar? What kind of monster are you?

Captain James T. Kirk: I'm a barbarian. You said it yourself.

Mea 3: If I refuse to report, and other refuse, then Vendikar would have no choice but to launch real weapons. We would have to do the same to defend ourselves. More than people would die then. A whole civilization would be destroyed. Surely, you can see that ours is the better way.

Captain James T. Kirk: No. I don't see that at all.

Scott: The best diplomat I know is a fully activated phaser bank.

Scott: Aye. The haggis is in the fire for sure, but I'll not lower my defenses on the word of that mealy-mouthed gentleman down below. Not until I know what happened to the captain.

Anan 7: Once your ship was in orbit about our planet, it became a legitimate target. It has been classified destroyed by a tri-cobalt satellite explosion. All persons aboard your ship have twenty-four hours to report to our disintegration machines. In order to ensure their cooperation, I have ordered you, Captain, and your party held in custody until they surrender. If possible, we shall spare your ship, Captain, but its passengers and crew are already dead.

Scott: Computer - last message received and recorded from Captain Kirk.

Enterprise Computer: In place.

Scott: Run it through analyzer. Question: is it or is it not the Captain's voice?

Enterprise Computer: Negative. A close copy.

Scott: A voice duplicator?

Enterprise Computer: 98% probability.

Scott: [to McCoy] Well, they've got them, Doctor, and now they're trying to get us.

Anan 7: Planetary disrupter banks, calculate orbit of star cruiser now circling. Stand by to fire full power.

Voice of fire control officer: Councilman, planetary disrupter banks locked onto target. Standing by.

Anan 7: In ten seconds, open fire. Destroy the star cruiser. Those are the orders of the council.

Anan 7: Enterprise, this is Anan 7, first councilman of the High Council of Eminiar. We hold your captain, his party, your ambassador and his party prisoners. Unless you immediately start transportation of all personnel aboard your ship to the surface, the hostages will be killed. You have thirty minutes. I mean it, Captain.

Captain James T. Kirk: All that it means is that I won't be around for the destruction. You heard me give general order 24. That means in two hours the Enterprise will destroy Eminiar 7.

Anan 7: Planetary defense system, open fire on the Enterprise!

Planetary Disruptor Bank Officer: I'm sorry, councilman, the target has moved out of range.

Captain James T. Kirk: Code 710 means that under no circumstances are we to approach that planet - no circumstances whatsoever.

Ambassador Fox: You will disregard that signal, Captain.

Ambassador Fox: Diplomacy, gentlemen, should be a job, uh, left to diplomats. You will, of course, immediately resume a peaceful status.

Anan 7: Uh, Mr. Ambassador, I am truly sorry for what must happen.

Ambassador Fox: I beg your pardon?

Anan 7: You and your party have been declared war casualties. You'll be taken immediately to one of our casualty stations so that your deaths may be recorded.

Ambassador Fox: You mean, we are to be killed?

Anan 7: That's correct, Mr. Ambassador. I regret it very much, but there is nothing I can do about it.

Captain James T. Kirk: Still, the Eminians keep a very orderly society, and actual war is a very messy business. A very, very messy business.

Spock: [after hearing Anan 7 explain their system of computerized warfare] There is a certain scientific logic about it.

Spock: I do *not* approve. I *understand*.
