Transcript "Star Trek VI: Battle of Khitomer From the Undiscovered Country"
Captain Kirk: Agora?
Agora: Nothing yet, captain. If she’s here, she’s rigged for silent running.
Unknown voice: I can see you, Kirk.
Captain Kirk: Chang.
Chang: Can you see me? Oh, now be honest, Captain. Warrior to warrior. You do prefer this way, don’t you. As it was meant to be. No peace in our time. Once more unto the breach, dear friends. (Speaks in Klingon).
Doctor: This is fun.
Captain Kirk: Reverse engines. On the stern. Back off, back off!
Chang: Speaking in Klingon
Captain Kirk: What is she waiting for?
Spock: Probably attempting to ascertain why we are reversing. Wondering whether we detect her.
Other man: Are we in range?
Gunman: Not yet, sir.
Asian Man: Come on. Come on!
Gunman: She’ll fly apart.
Asian Man: Then fly apart then!
Man on Kirk’s ship: We lost auxiliary power!
Spock: Auxiliary surface destroyed, Captain.
Chang: Tickle us, do we not laugh? Prick us, do we not bleed? Wrong us, shall we not revenge?
Spock: Gas. Gas, Captain! Under impulse power, she expends fuel, like any other vessel. We call it plasma. But whatever the Klingon designation is, it is merely ionized gas.
Woman: But what about all of that equipment we are carrying to catalog Ash’s anomalies? Well the things gotta have a tailpipe.
Spock: Doctor, would you care to assist me in performing surgery on a torpedo?
Captain Kirk: To starboard!
Man: Captain! She’s taking quite a lot of...shields weakening!
Asian Man: Shields up! Alright. Now we’ve given them something else to shoot at.
Gunman: Aye, sir!
Chang: Ah, the king’s afoot, huh.
Man: The saucer’s been hit.
Chang: Our revels now are ended, Kirk. Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war! (Laughter)
Captain Kirk: Bones, where’s my torpedo?
Doctor: Bet you wished you had stayed in bed.
Spock: Please, Doctor. Time is short. Our ship has been compromised.
Doctor: I wonder how bad.
Spock: We need echo bars! I’ll do circuit A.
Chang: I am constant as the Northern Star.
Doctor: I’d give real money if he’d shut up.
Spock: We’ve got a heartbeat! Key please
Captain Kirk: Where’s that damned torpedo?!
Doctor: It’s ready, Jim! Lock and load!
Captain Kirk: Fire!
Chang: To be, or not to be.
Asian Man: Target that explosion and fire.
Captain Kirk: Fire!
