The U.S.S. Constellation and its crew were destroyed by a giant robot ship which consumes planets for fuel, leaving only a guilt-ridden Commodore Decker aboard the crippled ship. Kirk beams over to begin repairs while Decker beams aboard the Enterprise. After Kirk loses radio contact with the Enterprise, the obsessed Commodore seizes command of the starship, determined to destroy the planet-killer, even at the cost of Kirk's ship and the entire crew.

According to the book "The Making of 'Star Trek'", the scanning device that Scotty takes from the Constellation's recess closet was designed by Mr. Spock. See more
When Mr. Scott beams over to the Constellation, he wears a kit of some kind that is held by a diagonal strap over his right shoulder. The strap is visible just before the Constellation gets underway, but after the ship starts to move, Scott is not wearing the strap as he is thrown off balance and clings to machinery and the hexagonal grid behind him. Then the ship's ride smooths out, and after a cutaway to Captain Kirk, Scott is suddenly wearing the strap over his shoulder again. See more
You can't let him do this, Spock.
Doctor, you are out of line.
Well, so are you.
