Star Trek (TV Series 1966–1969) Poster


Leonard Nimoy: Mr. Spock, Henoch



  • Capt. Kirk : All right, you mutinous, disloyal, computerized half-breed. We'll see about you deserting my ship.

    Spock : The term "half-breed" is somewhat applicable, but "computerized" is inaccurate. A machine can be computerized, not a man.

    Capt. Kirk : What makes you think you're a man? You're an overgrown jackrabbit. An elf with a hyperactive thyroid.

    Spock : Jim, I don't understand...

    Capt. Kirk : Of course you don't understand. You don't have the brains to understand. All you have is printed circuits.

    Spock : Captain, if you will excuse me.

    [Tries to activate the transporter] 

    Capt. Kirk : [blocks Spock's way and interupts]  What can you expect from a simpering, devil-eared freak whose father was a computer and his mother an encyclopedia.

    Spock : My mother was a teacher. My father an ambassador.

    Capt. Kirk : Your father was a computer, like his son. An ambassador from a planet of traitors. The Vulcan never lived who had an ounce of integrity...

    Spock : Captain, please don't...

    Capt. Kirk : You're a traitor from a race of traitors. Disloyal to the core. Rotten! Like the rest of your subhuman race. And you've got the GALL... to make love to that girl!

    Spock : That's enough.

    Capt. Kirk : Does she know what she's getting, Spock? A carcass full of memory banks who should be squatting on a mushroom? Instead of passing himself off as a man? You belong in the circus, Spock, not a starship. Right next to the dog face boy!

    [Spock begins beating the stew out of Kirk - he picks up a stool, ready to hit Kirk, then stops - the spore's influence is gone] 

    Capt. Kirk : Had enough? I never realized what it took to get under that thick hide of yours. Anyhow, I don't know what you're so mad about. It isn't every first officer who gets to belt his captain... several times.

    Spock : You did that to me deliberately.

    Capt. Kirk : Believe me, Mr. Spock. It was painful. In more ways than one.

    [Grabs his hurting arm] 

    Spock : The spores. They're gone. I don't belong anymore.

    Capt. Kirk : You said they were benevolent and peaceful. Violent emotions overwhelm them, destroy them. I had to make you angry enough to shake off their influence. That's the answer, Mr. Spock.

    Spock : That may be correct, Captain, but trying to initiate a brawl with over 500 crewmen and colonists is hardly logical.

    Capt. Kirk : I had something else in mind. Can you put together a subsonic transmitter? Something we can hook into the communication station and broadcast over the communicators?

    Spock : It can be done.

    Capt. Kirk : Good. Let's get to work.

    Spock : Captain! Striking a fellow officer is a court-martial offense.

    Capt. Kirk : Well, if we're both in the brig, who's gonna build the subsonic transmitter?

    Spock : That is quite logical, Captain.

  • Capt. Kirk : You'd make a splendid computer, Mr Spock. Spock

    Spock : [taken aback]  That is very kind of you, Captain!

  • [repeated line] 

    Spock : Facinating
