Captain James T. Kirk : To the Enterprise... and to absent friends.
Captain James T. Kirk : Captain's Log, Stardate 2263.2. Today is our 966th day in deep space, a little under three years into our five year mission. The more time we spend out here, the harder it is to tell where one day ends and the next one begins. It can be a challenge to feel grounded when even the gravity is artificial. But, well, we do what we can to make it feel like home. The crew, as always, continues to act admirably despite the rigors of our extended stay here in outer space. And the personal sacrifices they have made. We continue to search for new lifeforms in order to establish firm diplomatic ties. Our extended time in uncharted territory has stretched the ship's mechanical capacities. But fortunately our engineering department, led by Mr. Scott, is more than up to the job. The ship aside, prolong cohabitation has definitely had effects on interpersonal dynamics. Some experiences for the better, and some for the worse. As for me, things have started to feel... a little... episodic. The farther out we go, the more I find myself wondering what it is we're trying to accomplish. But if the universe is truly endless, then are we not striving for something forever out of reach? The Enterprise is scheduled for reprovisioning stop at Yorktown, the Federation's newest and most advanced starbase. Perhaps a break from routine will offer up some respite from the mysteries of the unknown.
Doctor 'Bones' McCoy : [referring to Starbase Yorktown] What a damn monstrosity! Couldn't we just rent some space on a planet?
Commander Spock : Showing geographical favoritism among inducted Federation worlds could cause diplomatic tension.
Doctor 'Bones' McCoy : Oh, you don't think that looks tense? Looks like a damn snow globe in space, just waiting to break!
Captain James T. Kirk : [sighs] That's the spirit, Bones.
Kirk : [hears song "Sabotage" blaring, aimed to destroy Krall's attacking swarm] It's a good choice.
Captain James T. Kirk : You lost! There's no way you can make it back there. Give up!
Balthazar M. Edison : What, like you did? I read your ship's log, Captain James T. Kirk! At least I know what I am! I am a soldier!
Captain James T. Kirk : You won the war, Edison! You gave us peace!
Balthazar M. Edison : Peace... is not what I was born into.
Captain James T. Kirk : What happened to you out there... Edison?
Balthazar M. Edison : I have to say, Kirk, I've missed being me. We lost ourselves but gained a purpose! A means to bring the galaxy back to the struggle that made humanity strong.
Captain James T. Kirk : I think you underestimate humanity.
Balthazar M. Edison : I fought for humanity! Lost millions to the Xindi and Romulan Wars! And for what? For the Federation to sit me in a Captain's chair and break bread with the enemy!
Captain James T. Kirk : We change. We have to. Or we spend the rest of our lives fighting the same battles.
Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott : This is the U.S.S. Franklin, sir. Can you believe it? First Earth ship capable of Warp 4. Went missing in the Gagarin Radiation Belt in the early 2160s.
Captain James T. Kirk : I remember that from the Academy. Captain Balthazar Edison.
Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott : Aye.
Captain James T. Kirk : One of the first heroes of Starfleet. How the hell did his ship end up here?
Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott : There's a lot of theories, sir. Surrendered to the Romulans. Captured by a giant green space hand. This far out, it's got to be a wormhole displacement.
Spock : Captain, the flight patterns of bees are determined by individual decisions. Krall's swarm formations are too complex not to rely on some form of unified cyberpathic coordination. I surmise that if we...
Captain James T. Kirk : [interrupts] Spock! Skip to the end.
Lieutenant Uhura : What he's saying is that if we disorient the swarm, we can kick its ass!
Spock : Precisely.
Captain James T. Kirk : There's no such thing as the unknown, only things temporarily hidden, temporarily not understood.
Doctor 'Bones' McCoy : You didn't even try to get our time out here reduced.
Captain James T. Kirk : Why would I get reduced? Bones, we know our way through the nebula now. Can you imagine what we'll find?
Doctor 'Bones' McCoy : Alien despots hell-bent on killing us? Deadly spaceborne viruses and bacteria? Incomprehensible cosmic anomalies that could wipe us out in an instant!
Captain James T. Kirk : It's gonna be so much fun.
Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott : [about Balthazar Edison] Ah, well, his record goes back way before the Federation even existed. He was a major in the United Earth Military Assault Command Operation. A lot of off-world combat.
Captain James T. Kirk : [surprised] He was a soldier.
Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott : Aye, sir. And a pretty good one. His military service came to an end when MACO was disbanded.
Captain James T. Kirk : Why? What happened?
Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott : The Federation, sir. Starfleet. We're not a military agency. They made him a captain and gave him the Franklin.
Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott : [notices many empty glasses] Uh, did you drink all those yourself? I'm impressed.
Jaylah : Someone said it would take my edge off. My edge is still not off.
Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott : Aye, well, maybe this will help... the captain pulled a few strings. That is acceptance into Starfleet Academy, if you want it.
Captain James T. Kirk : There are a lot of rules. Don't listen to them all.
Jaylah : Will I have to wear that uniform?
Captain James T. Kirk : I'm afraid so.
