Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) - full transcript

When the USS Enterprise crew is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction. As our space heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew. - stop by if you're interested in the nutritional composition of food
Damn it, man! That was our ride!
You just stunned our ride!

Oh, great.


What the hell did you take?

I have no idea, but
they were bowing to it.

Kirk to shuttle one.

Locals are out of the kill zone.

You are clear. Repeat.

Spock, get in there, neutralize the
volcano and let's get out of here.

We have to do this now!
I told the captain

the shuttle wasn't built
for this kind of heat.

Captain, did the indigenous
life forms see you?

No, Mr. Spock, they did not.

The prime directive
clearly states

there can be no interference

with the internal development
of alien civilizations.

I know what it says!
Which is why I'm running

through the jungle
wearing a disguise!

Now drop off your super ice
cube and let's go! Kirk out!

You're good.

If we're gonna do this,
we've got to do it now!

This ash is killing our coils.

You sure you don't
want me to go instead?

That would be highly illogical
as I am already outfitted...

Spock, I was kidding.

You got this. Guys! We have to go!

They're trying to kill us!

They're trying to kill us, Jim!

I'll see you in 90 seconds.

Raising shield 2. Mark 7.

Do it, do it!

Prerequisite change, 2-7-3.

Reduce descent. I repeat...
I can't hold this position.

Spock, I've got to
pull you back up.

Negative. This is our only
chance to save this species.

If this volcano erupts,
the planet dies.

Pull him back up. Now!

Spock, are you okay?

I am,

surprisingly, alive. Stand by.

We have to get him back.

I'll suit up. I'm gonna go down.

We have to abandon the shuttle.

We can't just leave him, sulu!

We don't have a choice!
Uhura, I'm sorry.

Spock, we're going back
to the enterprise.

We'll get you out of there.

Captain, I'm ditching
the shuttle.

You've got to make it to the
enterprise on your own.


Uhura! You ready to swim?
I'm ready.


Jim! The beach is that way!

I know! We're not
going to the beach!

Oh, no, no, no!

I hate this!

I know you do!

Do you have any idea
how ridiculous it is

to hide a starship on the
bottom of the ocean?

We've been down here
since last night!

The salt water's
gonna ruin the...

Scotty! Where's Spock?

Still in the volcano, sir.

Captain on the bridge!

Lieutenant, do we have an
open channel to Mr. Spock?

The heat's frying his comms,
but we still have contact.


I have activated the
device, captain.

When the countdown is complete,

the reaction should
render the volcano inert.

Yeah, and that's gonna
render him inert!

Negative, sir. Not with
these magnetic fields.

I need to beam Spock
back to the ship.

Give me one way to do it.

Uh, maybe if we had a
direct line of sight.

You're talking about
an active volcano!

Sir, if that thing erupts,

I cannot guarantee we
can withstand the heat!

I don't know that we can
maintain that kind of altitude.

Our shuttle was concealed
by the ash cloud,

but the enterprise is too large.

If utilized in a rescue effort,

it would be revealed to
the indigenous specie.

Spock, nobody knows the
rules better than you,

but there has got
to be an exception.

None. Such action violates
the prime directive.

Shut up, Spock! We're trying
to save you, damn it!

Doctor, the needs of the many
outweigh the needs of the few.

Spock, we're talking
about your life!

The rule cannot be broken...


Try to get him back online.

Ninety seconds to detonations.

If Spock were here and I were
there, what would he do?

He'd let you die.


You all right?

Captain, you let
them see our ship.

He's fine.

Bridge to captain Kirk.

Yes, lieutenant.

Is commander Spock
on board, sir?

Safely and soundly.

Please notify him
that his device

has successfully detonated.

You hear that?
Congratulations, Spock.

You just saved the world.

You violated the
prime directive.

Oh, come on, Spock. They saw us.
Big deal.

I can save her.

What did you say?

Your daughter.

I can save her.

Who are you?

Oh, Jim. Come on, let it go.


You're not actually gonna
answer that, are you?

Spock, I'm telling you, this is
why he called. I can feel it.

Your feeling aside, I
consider it highly unlikely

that we Will be selected
for the new program.

Why else would Pike
want to see us?

Forget about seniority.

They gave us the newest
ship in the fleet.

I can think of numerous

A five-year mission, Spock!

That's deep space! That's
uncharted territory!

Think how incredible that's gonna be.
Hey, ladies. Jim Kirk.

"Uneventful." admiral?

It's the way you described the survey
of nibiru in your captain's log.

Uh, yes, sir, I didn't want to waste
your time going over the details.

Tell me more about this volcano.

Data says it was
highly volatile.

If it were to erupt, it
would wipe out the planet.

Let's hope it doesn't, sir.

Something tells me it won't.

Uh, well, sir, volatile
is all relative.

Maybe our data was off.

Or maybe it didn't erupt

because Mr. Spock detonated
a cold fusion device

inside it right after
a civilization

that's barely invented the wheel

happened to see a starship
rising out of their ocean!

That is pretty much how you
describe it, is it not?

Admiral... you filed a report?

Why didn't you tell me?

I incorrectly assumed that you would
be truthful in your captain's log.

Yeah, I would have been if I
didn't have to save your life,

and the very reason
I felt it necessary

to take responsibility
for the actions...

Take responsibility, yeah.

That'd be so noble, pointy,

if you weren't also
throwing me under the bus.

"Pointy"? Is that a
derogatory reference to...


Starfleet's mandate is to explore
and observe, not to interfere.

Had the mission gone
according to plan, admiral,

the indigenous
species would never

have been aware of
our interference.

That's a technicality.

I am vulcan, sir. We
embrace technicality.

Are you giving me
attitude, Spock?

I'm expressing multiple
attitudes simultaneously, sir.

To which are you referring?


You're dismissed, commander.

You have any idea what a
pain in the ass you are?

I think so, sir.

So tell me what you did wrong.

What's the lesson
to be learned here?

Never trust a vulcan.

Now, see, you can't even
answer the question. You lied.

On an official report, you lied.

You think the rules
don't apply to you

'cause you disagree with them.

That's why you talked me into
signing up in the first place.

It's why you gave me your ship.

I gave you my ship because
I saw a greatness in you.

And now, I see you haven't
got an ounce of humility.

What was I supposed
to do, let Spock die?

You're missing the point.

I don't think I am, sir.
What would you have done?

I wouldn't have risked
my first officer's life

in the first place!

You were supposed
to survey a planet,

not alter its destiny!

You violated a dozen
starfleet regulations

and almost got everyone
under your command killed.

Except I didn't!

You know how many crew
members I've lost? Not one!

That's your problem, you
think you're infallible!

You think you can't
make a mistake.

It's a pattern with you!

The rules are for other people!
Some should be.

And what's worse is
you using blind luck

to justify your playing god!

Given the circumstances,

this has been brought to
admiral Marcus's attention.

He convened a special tribunal,
to which I was not invited.

You understand what starfleet
regulations mandate

be done at this point.

They've taken the
enterprise away from you.

They're sending you
back to the academy.

Admiral, listen...

I understand regulation, but
every decision I've made...

No! I can't listen!

You don't comply with the rules,

you don't take
responsibility for anything,

and you don't respect the chair.

You know why?

Because you're not ready for it.

Blue security clearance now
permitted for airlock access.

I'm going to need
three titanium...

Radiation protection is
required in this area.

How did you find me?

I know you better
than you think I do.

The first time I found you
was in a dive like this.

Remember that? You got
your ass handed to you.

No, I didn't.

You don't? No, that's
not what happened.

That was an epic beating.
No, it wasn't.

You had napkins hanging
out of your nose.

Did you not?

Yeah, that was a good fight.

"A good fight."

I think that's your
problem right there.

They gave her back to me.

The enterprise.


Watch your back with that
first officer, though.

Spock's not going to
be working with me.

He's been transferred.

U.s.s. Bradbury.

You're going to be
my first officer.

Yeah, Marcus took
some convincing.

But every now and then I
can make a good case.

What did you tell him?

The truth.

That I believe in you.

That if anybody deserves a
second chance, it's Jim Kirk.

I don't know what to say.

That is a first.

It's going to be okay, son.

"Emergency session, daystrom."

That's us.


Suit up.

All starfleet personnel,
please be advised,

- new security protocols are in effect.
- Captain.

Not anymore, Spock.
First officer.

I was demoted and you
were reassigned.

It is fortunate that
the consequences

were not more severe.

You've got to be kidding me.

Captain, it was never
my intention...

Not captain.

I saved your life, Spock.

You wrote a report,
I lost my ship.

Commander, I see now I
should have alerted you

to the fact that I
submitted the report.

No, I'm familiar
with your compulsion

to follow the rules. But
you see, I can't do that.

Where I come from, if
someone saves your life,

you don't stab him in the back.

Vulcans cannot lie.

Then I'm talking to the
half-human part of you.

All right?

Do you understand why
I went back for you?

Commander Spock? Frank Abbot, u.S.S.

Guess you're with me.

Yes, captain.

The truth is

I'm going to miss you.

Admiral Marcus, sir.

Thank you for convening
on such short notice.

Be seated.

By now, some of you have heard
what happened in London.

The target was a
starfleet data archive.

Now it's a damned
hole in the ground,

42 men and women are dead.

One hour ago,

I received a message from
a starfleet officer,

who confessed to carrying
out this attack,

that he was being forced
to do it by this man,

commander John Harrison.
He's one of our own.

And he is the man responsible
for this act of savagery.

For reasons unknown, John
Harrison has just declared

a one-man war against starfleet.

And under no circumstances
are we to allow this man

to escape federation space.

You here tonight represent
the senior command

of all the vessels
in the region.

And in the name
of those we lost,

you Will run this bastard down.

This is a manhunt, pure and
simple, so let's get to work.

Earth's perimeter sensors
have not detected

any Warp signatures
leaving the system,

so we know he can't be far.

You Will park your ships
in a blockade formation

then deploy search vehicles
and landing parties

to run down every lead.

This man has shown willingness
to kill innocent people,

so the rules of
engagement are simple.

If you come across this man
and fear for your life

or the lives of those nearby,

you are authorized to use
deadly force on sight.

What's in the bag?
James, not now.

It doesn't seem odd to you
that he'd target an archive?

It's like bombing a library.

Chris? Everything okay there?

Yes, sir. Mr. Kirk
is just acclimating

to his new position
as first officer.

You got something to
say, Kirk, say it.

Tomorrow's too late.

I'm fine, sir. My apologies.

Spit it out, son. Don't be shy.

Why the archive?

All that information
is public record.

If he really wanted
to damage starfleet,

this could just
be the beginning.

The beginning of what, Mr. Kirk?

Sir, in the event of an
attack, protocol mandates

that senior command gather
captains and first officers

at starfleet h.Q., right here

- in this room.
- It is curious Harrison

would commandeer a jump ship
without Warp capabilities...

Clear the room!


We need an air defense team!
Daystrom conference room!

- Let's go!
- Cover me!

- Target acquired.
- Take him out!

Watch my flank!

- Go, go, go!
- Cover me!



Commander, Mr. Scott
has found something

in the wreckage of
Harrison's ship.

He has asked to see
us right away.

Captain! I found this in the
crashed jump ship, sir.

This is how the
bastard got away.

What do you mean?

It's a portable transwarp
beaming device.

Well, can you figure
out where he went?

I already did, sir. And
you're no gonna like it.

He's gone to the one place we...

We just can't go.

Admiral, sir, he's not on earth.

He's on kronos, sir.

I request my command
be reinstated

and your permission
to go after him.

Give us a minute.

Kronos. Yes, sir.

So Harrison's gone to
the klingon homeworld.

Is he defecting? Uh,
we're not sure, sir.

He has taken refuge in
the ketha province,

a region uninhabited
for decades.

He's gotta be hiding there, sir!

He knows if we even go
near klingon space,

it'd be all-out war.

Starfleet can't go
after him, but I can.

Please, sir.

All-out war with the klingons
is inevitable, Mr. Kirk.

If you ask me, it's
already begun.

Since we first learned
of their existence,

the klingon empire has
conquered and occupied

two planets that we know of

and fired on our ships
half a dozen times.

They are coming our way.

London was not an archive.

It was a top-secret
branch of starfleet

designated section 31.

They were developing
defense technology

and training our officers
to gather intelligence

on the klingons and any
other potential enemy

who means to do us harm.

Harrison was one
of our top agents.

Well, now he's a fugitive
and I want to take him out.

Pike always said you were one
of our best and brightest.

You should have heard
him defend you.

He's the one who talked you into
joining starfleet, wasn't he?

Yes, sir.

Did he ever tell you who
talked him into joining?

His death is on me.

And yours can't be.

Sir, please. All I...

Mr. Spock, you said the province

where Harrison is
hiding is uninhabited?

Affirmative, sir.

As part of our
defensive strategy,

31 developed a new
photon torpedo.

Long-range and untraceable,

it would be invisible
to klingon sensors.

I don't want you hurt, but
I want to take him out.

You park on the edge
of the neutral zone,

you lock onto
Harrison's position,

you fire, you kill him
and you haul ass.

Permission to reinstate Mr.
Spock as my first officer.



Where were you? For what?

Your medical exam.

Ten hours ago, you were
in a damn firefight.

Now it's my duty as ship's...
I'm fine, bones.

The hell you are.

I'm fine.

Status report, Mr. Spock.

The enterprise should
be ready for launch

by the time we arrive.

Good. Good. Captain.

Thank you for requesting
my reinstatement.

You're welcome.

As I am again your first
officer, it is now my duty

to strongly object to
our mission parameters.

There is no starfleet regulation that
condemns a man to die without a trial,

something you and admiral
Marcus are forgetting.

Also, preemptively
firing torpedoes

at the klingon homeworld
goes against...

You yourself said the
area's uninhabited.

There's only gonna
be one casualty.

Our orders have nothing to do
with starfleet regulation.

Wait a minute. We're firing
torpedoes at the klingons?

Regulations aside, this
action is morally wrong.

Regulations aside, pulling your ass
out of a volcano was morally right.

And I didn't win any
points for that.

I'm not gonna take ethics
lessons from a robot!

Reverting to name-calling
suggests that you are defensive

and therefore find
my opinion valid.

I wasn't asking
for your opinion.

Bones, get that
thing off my face.

Captain, our mission could
start a war with the klingons

and it is, by its very
definition, immoral.

Perhaps you should take
the requisite time

to arrive at this
conclusion for yourself.

Captain Kirk.

Science officer Wallace.

I've been assigned to the
enterprise by admiral Marcus.

These are my transfer orders.

You requested an additional
science officer, captain?

I wish I had.

"Lieutenant Carol Wallace."

"Doctorate in applied physics"

"specializing in
advanced weaponry."

Impressive credentials.

Thank you.

But redundant now that I am
back aboard the enterprise.

And yet, the more the merrier.

Have a seat, doctor. Thank you.

Shuttle crew, stand
by for lift-off.

No! I'm not signing anything!

Now, get these bloody things
off my ship! Captain!

Is there a problem, Mr. Scott?

Aye, sir. I was just
explaining to this gentleman

that I cannot authorize any
weapons on board this ship

without knowing
what's inside them.

Mr. Scott raises yet
another point...

Report to the bridge.


Mr. Scott, I understand
your concerns,

but we need these
torpedoes on board.

Due respect, sir, but photon
torpedoes run on fuel.

Now, I cannot detect
the type of fuel

that's in the compartments
on these torpedoes

because it's shielded.

Now, I asked for the
specifications, but he said...

It's classified.
It's classified.

So I said, "no specs,
no signature!"


Flight check's complete.
We're good to go, sir.

Thank you, Mr. sulu. Yes, sir.

Now if you'll excuse me, sir,
I have a Warp core to prime.

Get down!

Jim, your vitals are way off.

Report to the med BAY. Scotty!

I need you to approve
those weapons.

I don't have time for
a lecture, Scotty.

Do you know what this is?
It's a Warp core.

It's a radioactive catastrophe
waiting to happen.

A subtle shift in
magnetic output

from, say, firing one or
more of six dozen torpedoes

with an unknown payload

could set off a chain
reaction which would kill

every living thing on this ship.

Letting those torpedoes on board
the enterprise is the last straw!

What was the first straw?
What was the...

There are plenty of straws.

How about starfleet confiscating
my transwarp equation?

And now some madman's using
it to hop across the galaxy!

Where do you think
he got it from?

We have our orders, Scotty!

That's what scares me.

This is clearly a
military operation.

Is that what we are now?

'Cause I thought
we were explorers.

Sign for the torpedoes,
that's an order.

Right, well, you
leave me no choice

but to resign my duties.

Oh, come on, Scotty.

You're giving me no choice, sir.
I Will not stand by...

You're not giving me
much of a choice...

Will you just make an
exception and sign...

Do you accept my
resignation or not?

I do!

I do.

You are relieved, Mr. Scott.


for the love of god, do
not use those torpedoes.

Attention. Warp core
anti-matter containment check

in three minutes.

Captain! I'm so sorry
about admiral Pike.

We all are.

Are you okay? Fine,
thank you, lieutenant.

Actually, Scotty just quit.

And your boyfriend's second-guessing
me every chance he gets.

I'm sorry, that was

It's just sometimes I want to
rip the bangs off his head.

You know, maybe it's me.
I... It's not you.

It's not?

Wait, are you guys...
Are you guys fighting?

I'd rather not talk
about it, sir.

Oh, my god! What
is that even like?

Your ears burning?

Captain on the bridge!


Mr. Chekov. You've been shadowing Mr.

You are familiar with the
engineering systems of this ship?

Affirmative, sir.


You're my new chief.
Go put on a red shirt.

Aye, captain.

Retract all moorings, Mr. sulu.

Yes, sir.

Docking clamps one, two,
and three are released.

All moorings retracted.

Lieutenant uhura, open
a shipwide channel.

Yes, sir.

Mr. Chekov, how we
looking down there?

All systems nominal, captain.
Copy that.

Warp available at your command.

Thank you, Mr. Chekov.

All right. Let's ride. Yes, sir.

Channel open, sir.

Attention, crew of
the enterprise.

As most of you know,
Christopher Pike,

former captain of this
ship and our friend,

is dead.

The man who killed him
has fled our system

and is hiding on the
klingon homeworld,

somewhere he believes
we are unwilling to go.

We are on our way there now.

That our presence go undetected.

Tensions between the federation

and the klingon empire
have been high.

Any provocation could
led to an all-out war.

I Will personally
lead a landing party

to an abandoned city on
the surface of kronos

where we Will capture the
fugitive, John Harrison,

and return him to earth

so he can face judgment
for his actions.

All right. Let's go get this
son of a bitch. Kirk out.

Captain, I believe you have
made the right decision.

If I can be of assistance, I would be
happy to accompany you on the away team.

You? Happy?

I was simply attempting to use
your vernacular to convey an idea.

Thank you, Mr. Spock.

All personnel, prepare for the
closing of payload BAY doors.

Mr. Spock. You startled me.

What are you doing, doctor?

Verifying that the torpedo's internal...
You misunderstand.

What are you doing
aboard this ship?

There is no record of you being
assigned to the enterprise.

Really? That must be
some sort of mistake.

My conclusion as well, Dr.

Except that you have lied
about your identity.

Wallace is the surname
of your mother.

I can only assume the
admiral is your father.

Mr. Spock.

I'm aware that I have no
right to ask this of you.

But please, he cannot
know that I'm here...

Engineering manually dropped
us out of Warp, sir.

Mr. Chekov, did you
break my ship?

Sorry, sir. I don't
know what happened!

The core overheated.

I had to activate
the emergency stop.

It must be a coolant leak.
I need time to find it.

Sorry, captain. Damn it.

Mr. sulu, time to
our destination.

Twenty minutes, sir.

That's 20 minutes in enemy
space we weren't counting on.

All right. We better hop to it.

Where's Spock? Here, captain.

You're coming with me to kronos.

Lieutenant, how's your klingon?

It's rusty, but it's good.

Good, you're coming, too.

This isn't going to
be a problem, is it,

you two working together?

Absolutely not.


I'll meet you in
the shuttle BAY.

Jim, you're not actually
going down there, are you?

You don't Rob a bank when the
getaway car has a flat tire.

I'm sure engineering Will
have us all patched up

by the time we get back.

Isn't that right, Mr. Chekov?

Yes, captain.

I'll do my best, sir.

Mr. sulu, you have the conn.

Once we're en route, I
want you to transmit

a targeted comm burst
to Harrison's location.

You tell him you have a bunch of real
big torpedoes pointed at his head

and if he doesn't play nice,
you're not afraid to use them.

Is that a problem? No, sir.

I've just never sat
in the chair before.

You're gonna do great.

Jim! Wait!

You just sat that man down
at a high-stakes poker game

with no cards and
told him to bluff.

Now sulu's a good man,
but he is no captain.

And enough with the metaphors, all right?
That's an order.

Mr. sulu, make sure that
k'normian ship is ready to fly.

Acting captain sulu
to shuttle BAY 2.

Please have the trade ship
we confiscated during

the mudd incident last month
fueled and flight ready.

Captain Kirk is en
route to you now.

Ready to deploy, captain.

Lieutenants, lose
the red shirts.

You are k'normian arms dealers.

Put those on. Sir?

Look, if this thing goes south,

there can be nothing
tying us to starfleet.

Unless of course you want to
start a war, Mr. hendorff.

No, sir. No, sir.

Good. Me, neither.

I am detecting a single life
sign in the ketha province.

Given the information provided by Mr.

this is most likely
John Harrison.

Mr. sulu, I think
we found our man.

You let him know
you mean business.

Aye, captain.

Attention, John Harrison.

This is captain hikaru sulu of the u.S.S.

A shuttle of highly
trained officers

is on its way to your location.

If you do not surrender
to them immediately,

I Will unleash the
entire payload

of advanced long-range torpedoes

currently locked
onto your location.

You have two minutes to
confirm your complain.

Refusal to do so Will result
in your obliteration.

If you test me, you Will fail.

Mr. sulu,

remind me never to piss you off.

We Will arrive at
Harrison's location

in three minutes, captain.

It is unlikely that he
Will come willingly.

I calculate the odds of him
attempting to kill us at 91.6%.


Good thing you don't
care about dying.

I am sorry, lieutenant.
I could not hear

what you said. Oh, I
didn't say anything.

Actually, I'd be happy
to speak if you're.

Lieutenant, I would prefer
to discuss this in private.

You'd prefer not to
discuss this at all.

What never seems to require
your undivided focus...

I'm sorry, captain,
just two seconds.

Okay... is us.

At that volcano, you didn't
give a thought to us.

What it would do to me
if you died, Spock.

You didn't feel anything.

You didn't care.

And I'm not the only one
who's upset with you.

The captain is, too.

Wha... no, no, no. Don't
drag me into this.

She is right.

Your suggestion that I do not
care about dying is incorrect.

A sentient being's
optimal chance

at maximizing their utility is
a long and prosperous life.


Not exactly a love song, Spock.

You misunderstand.

It is true I chose
not to feel anything

upon realizing that my
own life was ending.

As admiral Pike was dying,

I joined with his consciousness

and experienced what he felt
at the moment of his passing.

Anger. Confusion.



I had experienced those
feelings before,

multiplied exponentially

on the day my planet
was destroyed.

Such a feeling is
something I choose

never to experience again.

Nyota, you mistake my
choice not to feel

as a reflection
of my not caring.

Well, I assure you, the truth
is precisely the opposite.

What the hell was that?

What happened? Where's
their signal?

It cut out. I'm working
to get them back.

We are being pursued by a
d-4 class klingon vessel.

I thought this sector
was abandoned!

It must be a random patrol.

Hold on!

This ship has no
offensive capabilities.

It's got us. Give me
all six fuel cells.

Aye, captain.

They're closing
fast, bearing 285!

All right, there! There!
We can lose them there.

If you are suggesting that
we utilize the passage

between the approaching

this ship Will not fit.
We'll fit.

Captain, we Will not fit.
We'll fit, we'll fit!

I told you we'd fit. I am
not sure that qualifies.

Any sign of them?

- No. Which worries me.
- We lost them!

Or they're jamming our scanners.

Or we lost them.

They're ordering us to land.

Captain, they're gonna want
to know why we're here.

And they're gonna torture us.

Question us.

And they're gonna kill us.

So we come out shooting.

We're outnumbered, outgunned.

There's no way we survive
if we attack first.

You brought me here
because I speak klingon.

Then let me speak klingon.

This isn't going to work.

It is our only logical option.

And if you interrupt her now,

you Will not only incur
the wrath of the klingons

but that of lieutenant
uhura as well.

Lieutenant. Thanks, captain.

Stand down. How many torpedoes?

Stand down!

The weapons you threatened
me with in your message.

How many are there?


I surrender.

On behalf of Christopher Pike,

my friend,

I accept your surrender.



Cuff him.

- Bones, meet me in the brig.
- Be right there.


Contact starfleet, let them know
we have Harrison in custody,

and we'll be on our way once
the Warp core is repaired.

Yes, sir.

- Why the hell did he surrender?
- I don't know.

But he just took out a squad
of klingons single-handedly.

I want to know how.

Sounds like we have a
Superman on board.

You tell me.

Put your arm through the hole.
I'm gonna take a blood sample.

Why aren't we moving, captain?

An unexpected malfunction,
perhaps in your Warp core

conveniently stranding you on
the edge of klingon space?

How the hell do you know that?

I think you'd find my
insight valuable, captain.

We good? Yeah.

Let me know what you find.

Ignore me and you Will get
everyone on this ship killed.

Captain, I believe he Will only
attempt to manipulate you.

I would not recommend engaging
the prisoner further.

Give me a minute.

Let me explain what's
happening here.

You are a criminal.

I watched you murder
innocent men and women.

I was authorized to end you!

And the only reason why
you are still alive

is because I am allowing it.

So shut your mouth.

Oh, captain, are you
going to punch me again

over and over till
your arm weakens?

Clearly you want to, so tell me,

why did you allow me to live?

We all make mistakes.

No. I surrendered
to you because,

despite your attempt to
convince me otherwise,

you seem to have a conscience, Mr.

If you did not, then it
would be impossible for me

to convince you of the truth.


Coordinates not far from earth.

If you want to know
why I did what I did,

go and take a look.

Give me one reason why I
should listen to you.

I can give you 72.

And they're on board
your ship, captain.

They have been all along.

I suggest you open one up.

Oh! Hi!

You know what really
bothers me, though?

It's the modifications, you
know, the enhancements.

Right? And then like
that, I'm off the ship!

Just for trying to
do what's right!

And what did you do anyway?

You just stood there
like an oyster,

looking at me!


Scotty, it's Kirk. Oh, well now!

If it isn't captain James
Tiberius perfect hair!

Did you hear that? I
called him perfect hair.

Where are you? Where are you?

Are you drunk?

What I do in my private
time is my business, jimbo.

I need you to help me
out with something.

Will you take these
coordinates down?


Hmm. Are you writing?

What, you don't think I can
remember four numbers?

Ye of little faith.
What was the third one?


I don't know exactly
what you're looking for,

but I have a feeling you'll
know it when you see it.

You may have been right
about those torpedoes.

I Will consider that an apology.

And I Will consider
that apology.

You are the one who quit.

You made me quit!

Mr. Scott?

Scott. Ah...

The nerve of that guy!

I am not doing that
man any favors!


Ach! All right, then!

Are you out of your
corn-fed mind?

You're not actually going
to listen to this guy?

He killed Pike, he
almost killed you,

and now you think it's a good
idea to pop open a torpedo

because he dared you to.

Why did he save
our lives, bones?

The doctor does have
a point, captain.

Don't agree with me, Spock.

It makes me very uncomfortable.

Perhaps you too should learn

to govern your emotions, doctor.

In this situation,
logic dictates...

Logic? Oh, my god!
There's a maniac

trying to make us blow up
our own damn ship and...

That's not it. I don't
know why he surrendered,

but that's not it.

Look, we're gonna open a torpedo.
The question is how.

But, Jim, without Mr.
Scott on board,

who exactly is qualified

to just pop open a four-ton
stick of dynamite?

The admiral's daughter
appeared to have interest

in the torpedoes and she
is a weapons specialist.

Perhaps she could
be of some use.

What admiral's daughter?

Carol Marcus. Your
new science officer

concealed her identity
to board the ship.

When were you going
to tell me that?

When it became relevant.
As it just did.

Are the torpedoes
in the weapons BAY?

Loaded and ready to fire.
What are they?

I don't know. That's why
I forged my transfer

onto your ship to find out why.

I do apologize for that.

By the way, if I caused you
any problems, I am sorry.

I'm Carol Marcus.

James Kirk.


My father gave me access to
every program he oversaw,

then I heard he was developing
these prototype torpedoes.

Uh-huh. When I went to
confront him about it,

he wouldn't even see me.

That's when I discovered the
torpedoes had disappeared

from all official records.

And then he gave them to me.

You're much cleverer than your
reputation suggests, captain Kirk.

I have a reputation?

Yes, you do. I'm a friend
of Christine chapel's.

Christine, yes. How is she?

She transferred to the outer
frontier to be a nurse.

She's much happier now.

That's good.

You have no idea who I'm
talking about, do you?

What... what are
we doing in here?

Is this shuttle prepped to fly?
Of course it is.

Would you please turn around?

Just turn around.

It's too dangerous
to try and open

one of these torpedoes
on the enterprise.

But there is a nearby planetoid.

I can open one up there.

But I Will need some help.

Turn around.


Captain on the bridge!

Mr. sulu,

have doctors Marcus and McCoy
landed on the planetoid yet?

Yes, sir. They're moving the
torpedo into position now.

Good. Any activity
from the klingons?

Not yet.

But if we're stuck here much
longer, they Will find us.

Lieutenant uhura, did
you let starfleet know

we have Harrison in custody?

Yes, sir. No response yet.

Engineering to bridge.

Hello. Captain, can you hear me?

Mr. Chekov, give
me some good news.

We found the leak, sir, but
the damage is substantial.

We're working on it.

Any idea what caused it?

Uh, no, sir. But I accept
full responsibility.

Something tells me it wasn't your fault.
Stay on it.

Shuttle is standing by, captain.

Bones, thanks for helping out.

Dr. Marcus asked for the
steadiest hands on the ship.

You know, when I dreamt
about being stuck

on a deserted planet
with a gorgeous woman,

there was no torpedo!

Dr. McCoy, may I remind you,

you are not there to flirt.

So how can these legendary
hands help you, Dr. Marcus?


To understand how powerful
these weapons are,

we need to open the warhead.

To do that, we need to
access the fuel compartment.

Unfortunately for us,

the warheads on these
weapons are live.

Sweetheart, I once performed

an emergency c-section
on a pregnant gorn.


And let me tell you, those
little bastards bite.

I think I can work some
magic on your missile.

Dr. McCoy, there's a bundle
of fiber optic cables

against the inner casing.

You'll need to cut
the 23rd wire down.

Whatever you do, do not
touch anything else.

Do you understand?

Right. The thought
never crossed my mind.

Dr. McCoy,

wait for my word.

I'm rerouting the
detonation process.

Are you ready? And raring.

Good luck.

Sir, the torpedo
just armed itself.

The warhead's gonna detonate
in 30 seconds, sir!

What the hell happened?
I can't get my arm out!

The transporter cannot differentiate
between Dr. McCoy and the torpedo.

We cannot beam back one
without the other.

Dr. Marcus, can you disarm it?

I'm trying. I'm trying.

Jim, get her the
hell out of here!

No! If you beam
me back, he dies!

Just let me do it!

Ten. Nine. Eight.

Standing by to transport Dr.
Marcus on your command, sir.

Four. Three. Shit!

successful, captain.

Dr. McCoy, are you all right?



You're going to
want to see this.

Delta team, deliver your
thrusters to loading dock 12.

U.s.s. Vengeance, bridge crew

requesting entry to
construction hangar.

You are cleared to
enter the hangar.

I need a welding team on
the number one nacelle.

Holy sh...

What have we got?

This fuel container's been
removed from the torpedo

and retrofitted to
hide this cryo tube.

- Is he alive?
- He's alive.

But if we try to revive him

without the proper sequencing,
it could kill him.

This technology's beyond me.

How advanced, doctor?

It's not advanced. That
cryo tube is ancient.

We haven't needed to freeze anyone
since we developed Warp capability,

which explains the most interesting
thing about our friend here.

He's 300 years old.

Why is there a man
in that torpedo?

There are men and women

in all those torpedoes, captain.

I put them there.

Who the hell are you?

A remnant of a time long past.

Genetically engineered
to be superior

so as to lead others to
peace in a world at war.

But we were condemned as
criminals, forced into exile.

For centuries we slept,

hoping when we awoke,
things would be different.

But as a result of the
destruction of vulcan,

your starfleet began
to aggressively search

distant quadrants of space.

My ship was found adrift.
I alone was revived.

I looked up "John Harrison."

Until a year ago,
he didn't exist.

John Harrison was a fiction

created the moment I was awoken

by your admiral Marcus to
help him advance his cause.

A smokescreen to conceal
my true identity.

My name is,


Why would a starfleet admiral

ask a 300-year-old
frozen man for help?

Because I am better.

At what? Everything.

Alexander Marcus
needed to respond to

an uncivilized threat
in a civilized time

and for that he needed
a warrior's mind.

My mind.

To design weapons and warships.

You are suggesting the admiral

violated every regulation
he vowed to uphold

simply because he wanted
to exploit your intellect.

He wanted to exploit
my savagery.

Intellect alone is useless
in a fight, Mr. Spock.

You... you can't
even break a rule.

How would you be
expected to break bone?

Marcus used me to
design weapons.

To help him realize his vision
of a militarized starfleet.

He sent you to use
those weapons.

To fire my torpedoes on
an unsuspecting planet.

And then he purposely
crippled your ship

in enemy space, leading to
one inevitable outcome.

The klingons would
come searching

for whomever was responsible,

and you would have
no chance of escape.

Marcus would finally have
the war he talked about.

The war he always wanted.

No. No.

I watched you open fire in a room
full of unarmed starfleet officers.

You killed them in cold blood!

Marcus took my crew from me.

You are a murderer!

He used my friends
to control me.

I tried to smuggle
them to safety

by concealing them
in the very weapons

I had designed,

but I was discovered.

I had no choice but
to escape alone.

And when I did, I had
every reason to suspect

that Marcus had killed
every single one

of the people I hold most dear.

So I responded in kind.

My crew

is my family, Kirk.

Is there anything you would
not do for your family?

Proximity alert, sir!

There's a ship at Warp
heading right for us.

- Klingons?
- At Warp?

No, Kirk.

- We both know who it is.
- I don't think so.

It's not coming at
us from kronos.

Lieutenant, move
Khan to med BAY.

Post six security
officers on him.

Yes, captain.

Captain on the bridge!

Eta of the incoming ship.

Three seconds, sir.

Shields. Aye, captain.

They're hailing us, sir.

On screen.

Broadcast shipwide,
for the record.

Captain Kirk.

Admiral Marcus. I
wasn't expecting you.

That's a hell of a
ship you got there.

That you'd taken Harrison into
custody in violation of your orders.

Well, we, uh...

We had to improvise
when our Warp core

unexpectedly malfunctioned.

But you already knew
that, didn't you, sir?

I don't take your meaning.

Well, that's why
you're here, isn't it?

To assist with our repairs?

Why else would the
head of starfleet

personally come to the
edge of the neutral zone?

Captain, they're
scanning our ship.

Is there something I can
help you find, sir?

Where is your prisoner, ki?

Per starfleet regulation,

I'm planning on returning
Khan to earth to stand trial.

Well, shit.

You talked to him.

This is exactly what I was
hoping to spare you from.

I took a tactical risk
and I woke that bastard,

believing that his
superior intelligence

could help us protect ourselves

from whatever came at us next.

But I made a mistake.

And now the blood of everybody
he's killed is on my hands.

So I'm asking you,

give him to me

so that I can end
what I started.

And what exactly would
you like me to do

with the rest of his crew, sir?

Fire them at the klingons?
End 72 lives?

Start a war in the process?

He put those people
in those torpedoes.

And I simply didn't
want to burden u

with knowing what
was inside of the.

You saw what this man
can do all by himself.

If we woke up the
rest of his crew?

What else did he tell you?
That he's a peacekeeper?

He's playing you, so,
don't you see that?

Khan and his crew were condemned
to death as war criminals.

And now it is our duty to
carry out that sentence

before anybody else
dies because of hi.

Now, I'm going to ask you again!

One last time, son.

Lower your shields.

Tell me where he is.

He's in engineering, sir.

But I'll have him moved

to the transporter
room right away.

I'll take it from here.

- Do not drop those shields, Mr. sulu.
- Aye, captain.

Captain, given your awareness

of Khan's true location
in the med BAY,

may I know the details
of your plan?

I told Marcus we were bringing
a fugitive back to earth.

That's what we're going to do.

Mr. Chekov, can we Warp?

Sir, if we go to Warp,

we run the risk of seriously
damaging the core!

Can we do it?

Technically, yes, but I would
not advise it, captain.


Mr. sulu, set course for earth.

Yes, sir.

Punch it.

Well, at least we're
moving again.

If you think you're safe
at Warp, you're wrong.

Lieutenant uhura,
contact starfleet.

Tell them we were pursued
into the neutral zone

by an unmarked federation ship.

Comms are down, sir.

Permission to come
on the bridge.

Dr. Marcus.

He's gonna catch up with
us, and when he does,

the only thing that's
gonna stop him destroying

this ship is me, so you
have to let me talk to him.

Carol, we're at Warp. He
can't catch up with us.

Yes, he can. He's been
developing a ship

that has advanced
Warp capabilities...

Captain! I'm getting a
reading I don't understand.

Where are we? We're 237,000
kilometers from earth.

Shields are dropping.
We're defenseless, sir.

Sir, we have a bulkhead breach.

Where's the damage? Major
hull damage, captain.

Evasive maneuvers! Get us to earth!
Right now! Crewman: Aye, sir.

Captain! Stop! Everybody on
this ship is going to die

if you don't let
me speak to him.

Uhura, hail him.

Sir. It's me. It's Carol.

What are you doing on that ship?

I heard what you said.

That you made a mistake

and now you're doing
everything you can to fix it.

But, dad,

I don't believe that
the man who raised me

is capable of destroying a ship

full of innocent people.

And, if I'm wrong about that,

then you're gonna have to
do it with me on board.

Actually, Carol, I won't.



Can we intercept the transport signal?
No, sir.


Captain Kirk, without

and in league with the
fugitive John Harris,

you went rogue in
enemy territory,

leaving me no choice

but to hunt you Don
and destroy you.

Lock phasers. Wait,
sir, wait, wait, wait!

Target all left torpedoes
on the enterprise bridge.

Sir, my crew was just... Was
just following my orders.

I take... I take full
responsibility for my actions.

But they were mine and
they were mine alone.

If I transmit Khan's
location to you now,

all that I ask is
that you spare them.

Please, sir.

I'll do anything you want.

Just let them live.

That's a hell of an apology.

But if it's any consolation,

I was never going
to spare your crew.

Fire when ready...

I'm sorry.

Our weapons won't fire, sir!

Someone in engineering just
manually reset our systems!

What do you mean, "someone"?

Their weapons have powered down.

Enterprise! Can you hear me?

Guess what I found
behind Jupiter.

You're on that ship! I snuck on.

And seeing as I've just
committed an act of treason

against a starfleet
admiral, I'd really like

to get off this bloody ship.
Now beam me out!

You're a miracle worker.

We're a little low
on power right now.

Just stand by. Stand by.

What do you mean,
"low on power"?

What happened to the enterprise?

Call you back.


Spock. Our ship, how is she?

Our options are
limited, captain.

We cannot fire and
we cannot flee.

There is one option.

Uhura, when you get Scotty back,

patch him through. Yes, sir.

Mr. Spock, you have the conn.

Captain, I strongly object.

To what? I haven't
said anything yet.

Since we cannot take the
ship from the outside,

the only way we can
take it is from within.

And as a large boarding
party would be detected,

it is optimal for you to take

as few members of the
crew as possible.

You Will meet resistance,
requiring personnel

with advanced combat abilities

and innate knowledge
of that ship.

This indicates that you
plan to align with Khan,

the very man we were
sent here to destroy.

I'm not aligning with
him, I'm using him.

"The enemy of my
enemy is my friend."

An arabic proverb attributed
to a prince who was

betrayed and decapitated
by his own subjects.

Still, it's a hell of a quote.

I Will go with you, captain.
No, I need you on the bridge.

I cannot allow you to do this.

It is my function aboard
this ship to advise you

on making the wisest
decisions possible,

something I firmly believe

you are incapable of
doing in this moment.

You're right!

What I'm about to do, it
doesn't make any sense,

it's not logical. It
is a gut feeling.

I have no idea what
I'm supposed to do.

I only know what I can do.

The enterprise and her crew need someone
in that chair that knows what he's doing.

And it's not me.

It's you, Spock.

Tell me everything you
know about that ship.

Dreadnought class.

Two times the size,
three times the speed.

Advanced weaponry. Modified
for a minimal crew.

Unlike most federation vessels,

it's built solely for combat.

I Will do everything I can

to make you answer
for what you did.

But right now I need your help.

In exchange for what?

You said you'd do
anything for your crew.

I can guarantee their safety.

You can't even guarantee the
safety of your own crew.

Bones, what are you doing
with that tribble?

The tribble's dead.

I'm injecting Khan's platelets
into the deceased tissue

of a necrotic host.

Khan's cells regenerate like
nothing I've ever seen,

and I want to know why.

You coming with me or not?

You want to do what?

We're coming over there.
Sulu's maneuvering

the enterprise into
position as we speak.

To this ship? How?

There's a cargo door,
hangar 7, access port 101a.

You need to find the manual
override to open that airlock.

Are you crazy? Whoever you are.

Just listen to him, Scotty.
It's gonna be all right.

It is not gonna be all right.

You want me to open an
airlock into space,

whereupon I Will freeze,
die and explode!

Lieutenant, from our current
position, is it possible

to establish contact
with new vulcan?

I'll do my best. Thank you.

Mr. sulu, what is the
status of the other ship?

Their systems are still offline.

I'm aligning our ship now.

Scotty, how we doing over there?

Captain, I wish I
had better news.

They've locked out access
to the ship's computer.

They'll have full weapons in

three minutes.

That means next time I
won't be able to stop them

destroying the enterprise.
Stand by.

Access port 101a
of the other ship.

Captain, the ships are aligned.

Copy that. Scotty!

I'm in the hangar.
Give me a minute.

I'm running. Stand by.

Whoa, whoa, hold
on, now, captain.

This door is very wee. I
mean, you know, small.

It's four square meters, tops.

It's gonna be like jumping
out of a moving car,

off a bridge, into
your shot glass.

It's okay. I've done it before.

Yeah, it was vertical.

We jumped onto a... it was a...

It doesn't matter. Scotty...

Did you find the manual override?
The manual override, Scotty.

Not yet, not yet.

Captain, before you launch,
you should be aware there is

a considerable debris
field between our ships.

Spock, not now. Scotty, you good?
It's not easy!

Just give me two seconds,
all right, you mad bastard!

Tell me this is gonna work.

I have neither the information

nor the confidence
to do so, doctor.

Okay, captain, stand by.

Boy, you're a real comfort.

Come on, come on, come on.


Okay, okay! I'm set
to open the door.

You ready?

Are you?

Spock, pull the trigger.

Yes, captain.

Launching activation sequence on




Sir, Kirk is headed for
collision at .432!

Captain, there is
debris directly ahead.

Copy that.

Whoa! Jim, you're
way off course!

I know, I know! I can see that.

Don't move.

Use your display
compass, captain.

You must correct precisely

- 37.243 degrees.
- Got it.

I'm working my way back.

Scotty, you're gonna be ready
with that door, right?

What are you doing in here?

Wee bit of maintenance on the
airlock console. You're big.

Mr. Scott, where are you?

Captain, he can't
seem to hear you.

I'm working on getting his signal back.
Stand by.

- Damn it.
- Captain, what is it?

My helmet was hit. Uhura, tell
me you have Mr. Scott back.

His communicator is working. I don't
know why he isn't responding.

What is that? Are you starfleet
or private security?

Show me your other hand. Because
you look like private security.

Imminent collision detected!

Khan, use evasive action!

There is debris directly ahead.
I see it.

Mr. sulu, did we lose Khan?

I don't know, commander.
I'm having trouble

tracking him in all this debris.

Was Khan hit?

We are trying to find him now.

Captain, you need to adjust
your target destination

to 183 by 473 degrees.

Spock, my display's dead.
I'm flying blind.

Hitting your target destination
is mathematically impossible.

Spock, if I get back,

we really need to talk
about your bedside manner.

Commander, he's not
going to make it.

My display is still functioning.

I see you, Kirk, you're 200 meters
ahead of me at my one o'clock.

Come to your left a few
degrees and follow me.

Scotty, we're getting close.
We need a warm welcome.

Do you copy? Do you copy?

If you can hear us, Mr. Scott,

open the door in ten, nine...

That person counting down,
what is that? Eight...

I think you're hearing things, mate...

Mr. Scott, where are you?

Six, five... 1,800 meters.
1,600 meters.

Scotty, where are you? Three...

Do you copy, Scotty?
Please! Two...

Sorry about this. About what?

Mr. Scott, open the door!
Open the door!

Mr. Scott, now!

Welcome aboard.

It's good to see you, Scotty.
Who is that?

Khan, Scotty. Scotty, Khan.


They'll know we're here.

I know the best way
to the bridge.

It's locked to stun.

Theirs won't be.

Try not to get shot.

Commander, I have that
transmission as requested.

On screen, please.

Stand by.

Mr. Spock.

Mr. Spock.


I'll deal with you in a...

I am ashamed to
be your daughter.

Sir, we just had a hangar
door open on deck 13.


They're going to have full
power and we're walking?

The turbolifts are
easily tracked

and Marcus would
have us in a cage.

This path runs adjacent
to the engine room.

They know they won't be able
to use their weapons here

without destabilizing
the Warp core,

which gives us the advantage.

Where'd you find this guy?
Oh, it's a long story.

I Will be brief.

In your travels, did you ever
encounter a man named Khan?

As you know,

I have made a vow never
to give you information

that could potentially
alter your destiny.

Your path is yours to
worth, and yours alone.

That being said,

Khan noonien Singh is the
most dangerous adversary

the enterprise ever faced.

He is brilliant, ruthless,

and he Will not hesitate to kill

every single one of you.

Did you defeat him?

At great cost. Yes.


I don't mean to tempt fate
here, but where is everybody?

The ship is designed to
be flown by minimal crew,

one, if necessary.

One? I...

You all right? Yeah.
Where's Khan?

Lieutenant, I need you to
assemble all senior medical

and engineering staff
in the weapons BAY.

All right.

Dr. McCoy, you inadvertently
activated a torpedo.

Could you replicate the process?

Why the hell would
I want to do that?

Can you or can you not?

Damn it, man, I'm a doctor,
not a torpedo technician!

The fact that you are
a doctor is precisely

why I need you to
listen very carefully.

Where is he?


This way.

The minute we get to
the bridge, drop him.

What, stun him? Khan? I
thought he was helping us.

I'm pretty sure
we're helping him.

Power coming online, sir!

Retarget the enterprise now.

Aye, sir.

Make sure he stays down.

Excuse me. Yeah.

Admiral Marcus,
you're under arrest.

You're not actually going
to do this, are you?

Admiral, get out of the chair.

You better stop and think about
what you're doing, Kirk.

You better think about
what you did on kronos.

You made an incursion
onto an enemy planet!

You killed a klingon patrol.

Even if you got away without
a trace, war is coming.

And who is going to lead us?

If I'm not in charge,

our entire way of
life is decimated!

So you want me off this ship,

you better kill me.

I'm not going to kill you, sir.

But I could stun your ass and
drag you out of that chair.

I'd rather not do that in
front of your daughter.

You all right? Yes, captain.


Listen! Wait!

You should have let me sleep.

Where is the captain, Mr. sulu?

Our sensor array's down, sir.
I can't find him.

I'm going to make this
very simple for you.

Captain. Your crew for my crew.

You betrayed us.

Oh, you are smart, Mr. Spock.

Spock don't...

Mr. Spock, give me my crew.

And what Will you do
when you get them?

Continue the work we were doing
before we were banished.

Which, as I understand it,
involves the mass genocide

of any being you find to
be less than superior.

Shall I destroy you, Mr. Spock?

Or Will you give what I want?

We have no transporter

Fortunately mine a
perfectly function.

Drop your shields.

If I do so, I have no guarantee

that you Will not
destroy the enterprise.

Well, let's play this out
logically then, Mr. Spock.

Firstly, I Will
kill your captain

to demonstrate my resolve.

Then if yours holds, I
Will have no choice

but to kill you and
your entire crew.

If you destroy our ship,

you Will also destroy
your own people.

Your crew requires oxygen
to survive, mine does not.

I Will target your
life support systems

located behind the aft nacelle.

And after every single person
aboard your ship suffocates,

I Will walk over your cold
corpses to recover my people.


shall we begin?

Lower shields.

A wise choice, Mr. Spock.

I see your 72 torpedoes
are still in their tubes.

If they are not mine,
commander, I Will know it.

Vulcans do not lie.

The torpedoes are yours.

Thank you, Mr. Spock.

I have fulfilled your terms.

Now fulfill mine.

Well, Kirk,

it seems apt to return
you to your crew.

After all,

no ship should go down
without her captain.

He's locking phasers on us, sir!

Let us out of here now!

Shields at 6%!

The torpedoes! How
much time, lieutenant?

Twelve seconds, sir!

Crew of the enterprise,

prepare for imminent
proximity detonation.

What's he talking about?
What detonation?

The torpedoes. He armed
the damn torpedoes!


Sir, their weapons
have been knocked out.

Not bad, commander.
Thank you, lieutenant.

Bones! Bones!

Nurse! I got you. I got you.

Dr. Marcus.

Good to see you, Jim.

You helped Spock detonate
those torpedoes?

Damn right I did.

He killed Khan's crew!

Spock's cold, but
he's not that cold.

I've got Khan's crew.

Seventy-two human popsicles

safe and sound in
their cryo tubes.

Son of a bitch!

Sir, the central power
grid is failing!

Switch to auxiliary power.
Auxiliary power failing, sir.

Commander, our ship's
caught in earth's gravity!

Can we stop? I
can't do anything.

Sorry! Oh, no.

Clear the area!

Engage emergency lockdown! I
hope you don't get seasick.

Do you? Yeah.

Lieutenant, sound
evacuation, all decks.

Aye, sir.

As acting captain, I order
you to abandon this ship.

I Will remain behind
and divert all power

to life support and
evacuation shuttle bays.

Evacuation protocols...

I order you to abandon the ship!

All due respect, commander,
but we're not going anywhere.

Attention all decks.

Evacuation protocols initiated.

One day I've been off this ship!
One bloody day!

Gravity systems are failing.
Hold on! Hold on!

Attention, all decks.

Evacuation protocols initiated.

Proceed to exit bays

and report to your
assigned shuttle.

There won't be time
for evacuation

if we don't get power to
stabilize the damn ship!

Can we restore it?
Only from engineering.

We have to get back
to the Warp core.

Attention all decks.


Scotty, we got to get the
power back on! Come on!

Scotty, we got to jump! What?

Jump! Jump!

Oh, god.

Emergency power at
15% and dropping.

Attention, all decks.

Evacuation protocols initiated.

Proceed to exit bays

and report to your
assigned shuttle.

Jim? Hold on!

I can't.

I've got you, captain!

Chekov. Don't let go!

Even if we get the
Warp core online,

we've still got to
redirect the power!

He's right, captain! What
are you talking about?

Someone has to hit
the manual override.

Uh, laddie, there's a switch...

Behind the deflector dish!
I'll flip the switch!

Let's go!

Oh, no.

Oh-yoy! Oh-yoy!

Evacuation protocols initiated.

Proceed to exit bays

and report to your
assigned shuttle.

Mr. sulu, divert any remaining
power to stabilizers.

Doing what I can, sir.
Doing what I can.

Core misaligned. Danger.

Oh, no, no, no, no! What?

The housings are misaligned!

There's no way we can
redirect the power!

The ship's dead, sir.
She's gone.

No, she's not. Wait, Jim!

If we go in there, we'll die!

Do you hear me? The
radiation Will kill us!

Will you listen to me? What
the hell are you doing?

I'm opening the door.
I'm going in.

That door is there to stop
us from getting irradiated!

We'd be dead before
we made the climb!

You're not making the climb.

Danger. Core misaligned.

Danger. Core misaligned.

If we don't get power
or shields back online,

we're gonna be
incinerated on re-entry!

Warp core is back online!

Maximum thrusters, Mr. sulu!

Thrusters at maximum!
Stand by! Stand by!

Shields restored!
Commander, power online.

Mr. Spock, altitude stabilizing.

It's a miracle.

There are no such things.

Engineering to bridge.

Mr. Spock! Mr. Scott.

Sir, you'd better get down here.

Better hurry.

Open it.

The decontamination
process is not complete.

You'd flood the
whole compartment.

The door's locked, sir.

How's our ship?

Out of danger.

You saved the crew.

You used what he
wanted against him.

That's a nice move.

It is what you would have done.

And this,

this is what you
would have done.

It was only logical.

I'm scared, Spock.

Help me not be.

How do you choose not to feel?

I do not know.

Right now I am failing.

I want you to know why I
couldn't let you die.

Why I went back for you.

Because you are my friend.


God, that was close!

Set destination,
starfleet headquarters!

Cannot guarantee destination.

Confirm order.


Search the enemy ship
for signs of life.

Sir, there's no way
anyone survived.

He could.

Yes, sir.

Whoa! He just jumped 30 meters!

Can we beam him up?

There's too much damage.

I have no incoming signal.

But it may be possible
to beam you down, sir.

Go get him.

Stand by for coordinates.
Yes, sir.

Enter 3517 by 2598.

Coordinates confirmed.

Get me a cryo tube, now!

Get this guy out
of the cryo tube.

Keep him in an induced coma.

We're gonna put Kirk inside.

It's our only chance to
preserve his brain function.

How much of Khan's
blood is left?


Enterprise to Spock. Spock!

Activate the cryogenic sequence.

McCoy to bridge.

I can't reach Spock.
I need Khan alive.

You get that son of a bitch
back on board right now!

I think he can save Kirk.

Can we beam them up to the ship?

Ah, they keep moving! I can't
get a lock on either of them.

Can you beam someone down?



Spock, stop! Stop!

He's our only chance
to save Kirk!

- What is it?
- It's a boy.

Your father was captain of
a starship for 12 minutes.

He saved 800 lives. I
dare you to do better.

Oh, don't be so melodramatic.
You were barely dead.

It was the transfusion
that really took its toll.

You were out cold for two weeks.


Your cells were heavily irradiated.
We had no choice.


Once we caught him,

I synthesized a serum
from his superblood.

Tell me, are you
feeling, uh, homicidal?

Power mad? Despotic?

No more than usual.

How'd you catch him?

I didn't.

You saved my life.

Uhura and I had something to
do with it, too, you know.

You saved my life, captain.
And the lives...

Spock, just...

Thank you.

You are welcome, Jim.

There Will always be those
who mean to do us ha.

To stop them,

we risk awakening the same
evil within ourselves.

Our first instinct
is to seek revenge

when those we love
are taken from us.

But that's not who we are.

We are here today

to rechristen the u.S.S.

and to honor those
who lost their lives

nearly one year ago.

When Christopher Pike
first gave me his ship

he had me recite the
captain's oath,

words I didn't
appreciate at the time.

Now I see them as a
call for us to remember

who we once were,

and who we must be again.

And those words?

Space, the final frontier.

These are the voyages of
the starship enterprise.

Her five-year mission,

to explore strange new worlds,

to seek out new life
and new civilizations,

to boldly go where no
one has gone before.

Captain on the bridge.

It's hard to get out of it
once you've had a taste,

isn't that right, Mr. sulu?

"Captain" does have
a nice ring to it.

Chair's all yours, sir.

Mr. Scott.

How's our core?

Purring like a kitten, captain.

She's ready for a long journey.


Come on, bones!
It's gonna be fun.

Five years in space.
God help me.

Dr. Marcus.

Uh... I'm glad you could
be a part of the family.

It's nice to have a family.



Where shall we go?

As a mission of this duration
has never been attempted,

I defer to your good
judgment, captain.

Mr. sulu, take us out.

Aye, captain.
