Data Stellare 3192.1: L'Enterprise deve stabilire dei contatti diplomatici con Eminiar VII. Nonostante il Codice 710, Kirk, per ordini superiori, è costretto a sbarcare. Vengono accolti dal consigliere Anan 7 che li avverte che Eminiar è in lotta con Vendikar e l'Enterprise, divenuta anch'essa un bersaglio, è data per distrutta.
Spock: There is a multi-legged creature crawling on your shoulder. [T:19:52]
McCoy: I don't know. I'm a doctor. If I were an officer of the line, I'd... [T:15:10]
Scott: The best diplomat I know is a fully charged phaser bank. [T:23:51]
Kirk: Death. Destruction. Disease. Horror. That's what war is all about, Anan. That's what makes it a thing to be avoided. You've made it neat and painless. So neat and painless you've had no reason to stop it. [T:41:34]
Anan: There can be no peace. Don't you see, we've admitted it to ourselves. We're a killer species, it's instinctive. It's the same with you, your General Order Twenty-four!
Kirk: All right, it's instinctive. But the instinct can be fought. We're human beings with the blood of a million savage years on our hands. But we can stop it. We can admit that we're killers but we're not going to kill today. That's all it takes! Knowing that we're not going to kill today! Contact Vendikar. I think you'll find that they're just as terrified, appalled, horrified as you are, that they'll do anything to avoid the alternative I've given you. Peace or utter destruction, it's up to you.

Kirk: Actual war is a very messy business. Very, very messy business. [T:46:43]
Spock: A feeling is not much to go on.
Kirk: Sometimes a feeling, Mister Spock, is all we humans have to go on. [T:46:55]
