While trawling the depths of my computer, I found something.

Almost ten years ago, I found a little musical for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan... set to the musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

WARNING TO BUFFY PURISTS: In order to fit the dramatic flow of “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” the order of the songs from “Once More With Feeling” has been changed slightly.




“ONCE MORE WITH STARSHIPS”
aka
"STAR TREK II: THE MUSICAL!”


Star Trek II Screenplay by Jack B. Sowards
All songs originally by Joss Whedon
New lyrics by Alan Decker and Anthony Butler
(We're combining a four-year-old Buffy episode with a twenty-something year old movie. Do we have our fingers on the pulse of pop culture or what?)




OVERTURE


Throughout the overture, Admiral James T. Kirk observes as Saavik attempts the Kobyashi Maru test. After she completely blows up the simulator, Kirk shakes his head and walks off down the corridor, lamenting his situation.


REGRETTING MY PROMOTION (Formerly “Going Through The Motions”)


KIRK
Every single time
The same assignment
I go out and watch them fight
Still I can’t observe with pure detachment
That should be my chair
With Spock at my right


My resentment grows
I try to pose
Although I’m sure it shows


That I’m regretting my promotion
To the Admiralty
I just want to take a ship and flee


On the Enterprise
I was courageous
Now I’m too far from the fray
Admiral’s rank is nice
But I’ve got star lust
Got to get away


Spock shows up beside him and shoves a book in Kirk’s hands.


SPOCK
Here it’s your birthday


KIRK
That was yesterday.


Spock moves off as the scene transitions to Kirk’s apartment. Before he can open his mouth to continue, his door bursts open, and Sulu, Scotty, Uhura, and McCoy dance in with McCoy in the lead carrying a bottle of Romulan Ale


SULU/SCOTTY/UHURA/McCOY
Your job really sucks
You’re in a rut
Forget this admiral stuff
‘Cause you’re
Regretting your promotion
Think your ship has sailed


McCoy hands Kirk a glass of Romulan ale. Kirk refuses.


McCOY
You won’t even drink this Romulan
Ale...


KIRK
Can’t command a ship forever
Thought the admiralty’d be better


McCOY
You can run away.


KIRK
No. Never.
I can’t go on reeeeeeeeeee-
Gretting my promotion
Thinking of old times
I’ll serve Starfleet yet
By teaching dumb cadets
You folks don’t need to fret
I’m fine!




ENTERPRISE BRIDGE


Sulu, Scotty, and Uhura putter around preparing the ship for departure.


SCOTTY
Are we really putting the Enterprise
in the hands of cadets?


UHURA
Those are our orders.


SCOTTY
Aye. That they are.


SULU
Just relax. It’ll be fine.


WHY SHOULD WE WORRY? (Formerly “I’ve Got A Theory.”)


SULU
Why should we worry?
It’s a cadet cruise
A dull cadet cruise
So sit back ‘til we get there.


UHURA
Why should we worry?
These kids are bad news
You saw how Saavik smashed up Starfleet's simulator


SCOTTY
Why should we worry
With Jim Kirk on board?


UHURA/SULU/SCOTTY
We're getting leery
Because we'll spend the movie feeling bored!


SULU
There could be a crisis!
A major crisis!
Which is ridiculous because Kirk is here
And he’d save us all without our help
And we don’t count and we never have
And I’ll never get a ship.


UHURA
Why should we worry?
‘Cause Saavik’s evil!


Scotty and Sulu look at her as though she’s lost her mind.


SCOTTY
Why should we...


Uhura suddenly rocks out!


UHURA
Saavik’s not uptight
Like all the rest of planet Vulcan
She has her pissy days
And curses with emotion
And what’s with all the small shirts?
Why does she get to be in command anyway?
Saavik! Saavik!
I don’t trust Saavik!


Now Scotty and Sulu know she’s flipped her lid. Just as they turn to talk to each other...


UHURA
I think she’s evil


SCOTTY
Why should we worry?
Uhura’s just gone nuts


SULU/SCOTTY
And there's nothing wrong with showing us
That Vulcan’s bust


Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and Saavik exit the turbolift onto the bridge just as they finish singing.


KIRK
Why should we worry?
Let’s stop the chatter.


Spock and McCoy shrug and take their usual bridge positions as Saavik slides into the command chair. Kirk starts at the rear of the bridge but gradually moves to the front as he sings.


KIRK
The Admiral’s here so let’s get going
I hope my melancholy’s showing
I’m getting old
The theme is clear
We’ve hit you all
On the head here.


EVERYONE ELSE
He’s feeling down. Okay. We get it
We're sick of hearing 'bout his regret
Subtle we’re not
We’ve made it plain
Let’s start the plot.


KIRK
Let me complain!


EVERYONE ELSE
He’s feeling down. Okay. We get it


KIRK
I’m feeling down...


EVERYONE ELSE
His promotion he really regrets


KIRK
I have regret...


ALL
Can we please start the plot?


UHURA
And ditch that Saavik.


Everyone else on the bridge shoots her an angry glare.






You wanted a plot? We’ve got a plot. On Ceti Alpha V, Khan Noonian Singh lords over Chekov and Captain Terrell, who are on their knees in EVA suits, writhing in pain as they grasp at their sealed helmets.


EAR BUGS (Formerly “The Mustard”)


CHEKOV
Please get...these ear bugs...out!


CHEKOV/TERRELL
Please get these ear bugs OWWWWWWWWWWW!






As the Enterprise cruises along, Spock cruises in a turbolift through the ship. The lift stops and the doors open, allowing Lieutenant Saavik to enter.


SAAVIK
Captain Spock.


SPOCK
Lieutenant.


The pair rides in silence for a few moments.


SPOCK
Aren't you supposed to have this turbolift
scene with Captain Kirk?


SAAVIK
In the movie, yes, but the writers are taking
a little dramatic license here.


SPOCK
I see. I suppose we should proceed then.
Is something troubling you?


SAAVIK
It is. May I speak freely?


SPOCK
Of course. Would you prefer to communicate
via English, Vulcan or musical number?


SAAVIK
Musical number.


SPOCK
Very well.


YOU’RE SO LOGICAL (Formerly “Under Your Spell”)


SAAVIK
I lived a life of logic
As part of a pointy‑eared race
It didn't seem so bad, though
I figured that was my place
And now I'm mad with fright
Something just isn't right


You're so logical
More logical than me
Please teach me the way to be
It's logic I can tell
How you keep your peace
Make it seem so damn easy


I saw a world infested
Feelings and love in the air
I always took for granted
My logic’s better than theirs
But your logic shows
It's better than any I've known


You're so logical
Nothing I can do
I wish I could mind‑meld with you
You keep your calm so well
Finally, I knew
Everything I thought was true
You made me believe


Secrets that I hide
Swelling with Romulan pride


You're so logical
Ears are all pointy
Wanting to be so blase
I think I'm stuck in hell
Frigging ecstasy
Logic’s not a part of me


You make me com‑pete
You make me com‑pete
You make me com‑pete
You make me...




Meanwhile, Admiral Kirk receives an urgent message on the monitor in his quarters from Carol Marcus. Her image and voice are distorted on the screen.


CAROL
Jim! Is that you?


KIRK
Um...yes. Do I know you?


CAROL
It's Carol!


KIRK
Er...you're going to need to be a little
more specific.


CAROL
Carol Marcus!


KIRK
I think I know that name.


CAROL
JIM!


KIRK
Oh, Carol! Right! Sure.


CAROL
Jim, they want Genesis!


KIRK
Who? What do they want with Genesis?
I don't think Phil Collins is even around
anymore, so a reunion is out of the question.


CAROL
Not that Genesis!


KIRK
Oh! The planet maker thingy. Gotcha.


Carol's message disintegrates. Kirk, realizing this could be trouble, gathers Spock and McCoy in his quarters to fill them in.


KIRK
I just got word from...a Carol-somebody
that somebody else wants Genesis. Before
we take action, though, you should know
what Genesis is. I have a film.


SPOCK
Is there popcorn?


McCOY
Who's playing Phil Collins?


One animated spectacular later, the fully‑informed officers head up to the bridge and send the Enterprise hurtling toward Regula One.


Some time later, the Enterprise detects the USS Reliant heading its way. What the Enterprise crew doesn’t know is that we’ve secretly replaced the Reliant’s crew with a bunch of pissed off 20th Century genetic supermen. Let’s see what happens...


As the Enterprise and Reliant approach each other, Khan sits imperiously in the Reliant's command chair, watching his quarry come closer.


ALL SHOT TO HELL (Formerly “I’ll Never Tell”)


KHAN
There is the ship that I plan to disable
Phasers are primed
Kirk's toupeed head will be brought to my table
Vengeance is mine
The last vic'try was his
But I'll win now 'cause I'm a whiz
Just wait 'till his ship is
All shot to hell


Meanwhile, on the Enterprise bridge, Kirk considers the Reliant.


KIRK
There is a ship
It's a Starfleet starship
But why in this place?
Floating out there should I care
That it's there
In space
Out in space!
They really should have hailed
Something's wrong. Could their comm have failed?
If they shoot we'll be ‑‑ nailed
All shot to hell


KIRK _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ KHAN
But who'd shoot us to hell? _ _ _ _ But I'll shoot you to hell


KHAN
He's mine


KIRK
She's coming


KHAN
Prepare to raise the shielding


KIRK
I've got a funny feeling
And I can't say why


KHAN
We'll soon‑‑be blasting


KIRK
The regs here are exacting


KHAN
Our phasers will be lancing
'cross their hull's white side


KIRK/KHAN
Oh wait
Our ships are friendly


KIRK
Just two ships that should by chance meet


KHAN
Just a part of one big nice fleet


KIRK
Just no need to call a retreat


KIRK/KHAN
I know all will be well


KIRK_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ KHAN
'Cause no way we're shot to hell_ _ _ _ _ _ _'Cause you'll be all shot to hell


KHAN
vWhen things get tough then
He just hides behind his Vulcan
And soon he will be sulkin'
'Cause I've shot up his ship


KIRK
I'm bored. Of waitin'
When's something gonna happen?
They shoulda‑‑


KHAN
Okay. Start shootin'!


The Enterprise rocks under the first barrage.


KIRK
This is my ship, Hello! We‑‑


More shots from the Reliant.


KHAN
Look at that! We hit them! Crazy!


Phasers blast and stuff on the Enterprise explodes as the jaunty musical interlude plays.


KIRK/KHAN
You know...


KIRK
We should have raised shields


KHAN
Go taste how that feels!


KIRK
They knew just the spots to hit us
Puts an end to all my fleet trust
And for now they've left us
Dead in space!


More sprightly music as Reliant fires one more time.


KHAN
They're gone


KIRK
We're gonners


KHAN
And now it's time to talk terms


KIRK
Look there on the viewscreen
It's that crazy Khan guy


KHAN
Kirk, my old friend
You're life has reached its due end
It's Genesis that you'll send
Give Spock a hug bye


KIRK/KHAN
Not long
Until the time's up
He's strong
But on these thoughts I can't dwell


KIRK
Could we send the ship its prefix code?


KHAN
Will Genesis be a motherload?


KIRK
Khan, you've got to give us more time
'Cause the data we just can't find


KHAN
Kirk, come on. Your fate, it beckons
You've got less than sixty seconds


KIRK
Here it's comin'


KHAN
Shields are droppin'


KIRK
Now our phasers start a blastin'


The Enterprise's weapons savage Reliant.


KIRK/KHAN
And that final bit of shooting
Is this battle's death knell
We're hit and all shot to hell
My ship is all shot to hell


KIRK
Choking on smoke


KHAN
We have to flee


KIRK
No time for glee
We barely won


KIRK/KHAN
All shot to...HELL!




There's a whole lot of stuff that happens here. Really exciting stuff, I assure you. The Enterprise reaches Regula One. Kirk, Saavik and McCoy beam aboard the station. They find Chekov and Terrell. They beam into the Regula moon and find Carol and David Marcus. Did you know David Marcus was Kirk’s son? Talk about drama! And David doesn’t like his Dad! Like I said, it's quality stuff. None of it involves singing, though, so we're just going to skip right on up to the very tense moment just after Terrell and Chekov have told Khan where Genesis is. Khan's beamed up the Genesis Device, Chekov has collapsed, and now Terrell has a phaser pointed at our heroes! Whatever will they do! Listen to a song. That's what...


TERRELL’S LAST GASP (Formerly “Parking Ticket”)


TERRELL
I've got a creature in my brain
Can't seem to put my phaser away
I'm gonna kill you, Bones.
It's in my head, came through my ear.
And now it's telling me to fire!
It has its tendrils everywhere!


Why can't I let it go?
I think it's making me aware
That Khan wants you to despair
Maybe I'll shoot myself right here!




Astoundingly enough, he does. And for one brief shining moment, Khan believes that his old adversary is dead. But then Kirk just has to get on the commline and spoil everything. Fortunately (for Khan anyway), our antagonist recovers quickly and makes some lemonade out of the proverbial lemons.


THE GLOAT OF KHAN (Formerly "What You Feel")


KHAN
So you're still alive
Despite all my guile
But you'll have to survive
Way deep inside a great rock pile


You stranded us on Ceti Alpha
Fifteen years until I escaped and got ya
So I win the day
Looks like you're stuck a while


I'll take Genesis
While you sit and rot
That's the way it is
And right now you can't do squat
Now for your ship I'll be a gunnin'
I'll blast their britches off
I'll send the torps in
Call your next of kin
You're stuck in quite a spot.


And I know how you feel, Kirk
I know just how you feel, Kirk


KIRK
So you're going to come down and
face me? Fight me man‑to‑man?


Khan laughs.


KHAN
All this battling
It goes on too long
Why waste energy?
When I can just sing this song
Enterprise is damaged and waiting
A wounded bird just ripe for the plucking
And you'll sit helplessly
Knowing they're dead and gone


The time has come
So long old chum
Its time to end this scene
It's nice to know that I'm hurting you so
Now let me hear you scream


'Cause you're stuck stranded here, Kirk


KIRK
You're a twit
Who can't hit
A target
Come here and see


KHAN
I've buried you, Kirk


KIRK
You took this
Genesis
But you missed
my whole body


KHAN
You're stuck inside the Regula moon
And no help will be coming real soon


KIRK
We can fight
Prove your might
Here tonight
Just beam down here


KHAN
I'm not biting
Sit there and glower
You're just a zero
While I've got the power


KIRK
Think your tough
Show your stuff
Where is great Khan the killer?


KHAN
Kill you? Oh, I've done far worse than
kill you. I've hurt you. And, I wish to go
on hurting you. I shall leave you as you
left me‑‑as you left her‑‑marooned, for all
eternity, in the center of a dead planet:
buried alive.


Now we've reached the end
You're stuck in quite a spot


KIRK
KHAN!
KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!




Kirk soon realizes that Khan has hung up on him...either that or he lost the comm signal. The reception stinks inside a planet. With a shrug, Kirk plops down on the grass in the Genesis cave to wait. Soon, Saavik approaches him.


SAAVIK
Admiral, about the Kobyashi Maru...


KIRK
So you want to know how I beat it.


SAAVIK
No, actually, I was interested in my
Performance in the sim...


Too late. Kirk’s already burst into song.


LET ME TRY TO CHEAT (Formerly “Let me Rest in Peace”)


KIRK
I tried
So many years ago
To beat Starfleet’s Academy’s
No-win scenario
And although I flunked it many times,
I think I finally showed,
mmm-mmm


You’re scared
Afraid that you might fail
And you can’t seem to save your ship
From all of those travails
Raise the shields, and arm the torps
You know it isn’t real


That's great
But I don't wanna play
'Cause losing really rankles me
More than I can say
And since my crew’ll die real soon
I’m gonna find a way
So let me try to cheat


Let me try to cheat
Let me get this beat
Let me reprogram this simulator
So that I can get some sleep
I risked everything to win
But I’m still in Starfleet
So let me try to cheat


You know,
Kobayashi’s saved
I just love to think about
All those admirals who’ll rave
And when they do
I’m telling you
That I can find a way
So let me try to cheat


I know I should go
back inside the sim, and retake the test
There’s a simulator, that’s what I know best
And I love it more than you’d ever guess
But I love that I just passed that test
but I can see you're unimpressed
So leave me be and
Let me try to cheat
Let me get this beat
Let me reprogram this simulator
So that I can get some sleep
I risked everything to win
But I’m still in Starfleet
So let me try to cheat
Why won't you
Let me try to cheat?




Meanwhile, up on the Enterprise, Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott is facing a decidedly untidy engine room. It’s amazing what a mess a crippling attack can make. Unfortunately for Scotty, Captain Spock is demanding little things like transporters and main power. What’s an engineer to do? Sing to his ship. That’s what.


REPAIRING IN MY WAY (Formerly “Standing in the Way”)


SCOTTY
You're not ready
For a Reliant fight
But Spock keeps calling
And I cannae hide
I know I said that I’d
have engines back online
But I...


The shields are beaten
And the engines died
The warp field’s failing
And the phasers fried
Spock told me two days,
but I think that he lied
But I ...


I wish I could align
The warp core
To get us on our way
Wish I could arm the phasers
in hours ‘stead of days
Wish Khan would pay
But I’m only one man
And I’m repairing in my way


Below Regula,
the Captain’s stuck
And Spock knows I’m here
To fix this junk
But he told the Captain
It’d be hours ‘stead of days
But I


I wish I could
Work a miracle
And save the day at last
Wish I could
Start the engines
But now their time has passed
Wish I had the power
But I dinnae, I guess
But I'm
Repairing
In my way
I’m just repairing
In my own way




Back inside the Regula Moon, Lieutenant Saavik has discovered to her well-disguised horror that Admiral Kirk evidently plans to keep telling stories about his career until they all die of old age. This wasn’t exactly how she planned to spend her career. Soon, she begins a lamentation of her own as Scotty continues his on the Enterprise. Thank the Great Bird for split-screen or this would never work.


WISH KHAN WOULD PAY (Formerly “Under Your Spell/Wish I Could Stay (Reprise)”)


SAAVIK
It's not logical.
Spock, how can this be?
Leaving Kirk down here with me
Oh how his head does swell.
Of his captaincy
He insists on telling me
I need a reprieve


SCOTTY
Reprieve me now, my engines. Go!


SCOTTY/SAAVIK
'Cause if you leave me
It will end this show
The final blow


SCOTTY _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ SAAVIK
Wish I could fix the warp core _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Wish I could trust that you'll come back for us
To get us on our way _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _Since we're stuck inside this crust
Wish I could arm the phasers _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _My lovely bust will turn to dust
In hours 'stead of days _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ All gone and I just...


SCOTTY/SAAVIK
Wish Khan would pay
Wish Khan would pay
Wish Khan would pay
Wish Khan would pay




But wait! It was all a ruse! Kirk and Spock had a plan the entire time! Soon, everyone is back on the Enterprise and rushing around as they’re prone to do in crisis situations.


SAAVIK
Wait! You said the repairs would take
days.


SPOCK
No uncoded communications on an
open channel.


KIRK
It’s a regulation or something. Hours became
days, and now we have minutes instead
of hours, and that means the seconds
have gotten really really short!


SAAVIK
You could have let me in on it!


KIRK
But then it wouldn’t be this cool
surprise!


The crew reaches the bridge, and the Enterprise races (and really that’s a generous term for it) toward the Mutara Nebula with the Reliant in hot pursuit. When the Reliant shows signs of dropping back, Kirk has Uhura do that channel opening thing she does so well to goad on his adversary.

LIMP TO MUTARA ( Formerly “Walk Through The Fire”)


KIRK
I’ve fought you, Khan
And you’ve battled me
Loads of hard feelings we don’t lack
You thought me killed
But I’m returning still
I just keep coming back


Kirk signals for Uhura to cut the channel.


KIRK
My ship is broke
Can’t get much speed
I’ll change the way we play this game
To stay alive
We’ll slip in there and hide
Our ships will be the same


So we will limp to Mutara
Where purple gasses churn
We will limp to Mutara
And he’ll go...


Meanwhile on the Reliant there sits one really angry 20th century genetic superman.


KHAN
That man out there
Keeps tasking me.
And I will have him there’s no doubt.
Oh he can run
But I will have my fun.
This fight will be a rout.


Back on the Enterprise, the angst-ridden song-fest continues...


SAAVIK
So we have limped to Mutara...


Split-screen!


SAAVIK _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ KHAN
And we may not return _ _ _ _ _ _ _ He will not return


SAAVIK/KHAN
And we have limped to Mutara
Where he’ll go...


SPOCK
Khan’s technique, it shows no range, sir
To space fights he is a stranger
We could catch him where he’s unaware.


CHEKOV
Standing by, sir, on the weapons.


SCOTTY
Is he thinking of my engines,
As he sits there in his captain’s chair.


SPOCK/CHEKOV/SCOTTY/SULU/UHURA
Kirk gets us through.
That’s why we’re glad to be his crew.
So we will limp through Mutara...


KIRK
So in this place he can’t see me
He says revenge is best served cold.


SAAVIK
Out there in space, it’s frosty weather.


KIRK
We have him now
We’ll shoot him up and how!
I’ll prove I’m not so old./I]


The Enterprise shoots the utter crap out of the Reliant. Cue the singing over one another!


CHEKOV
We have hit him with the phasers.


SCOTTY
Not much longer
Hold together


SULU
I feel like I’m flying in the dark


KIRK
Regretting my promotion
Ship’s captain is my part


SCOTTY
Mains are done for
No warp power


DAVID
That shockwave will be a killer


SPOCK
I’ll go down and get us
Out of park


KHAN
They will die with me!


KIRK
This really blows
We’re are just sitting here like shmoes


ALL
And we are caught in Mutara
Our lives will end real soon
So we will die in Mutara
When we go boom
We’ll go boom
We’ll go boom
We’ll go boom!


Despite being defeated, charred, battered, and pretty disgusting looking, Khan finds the energy to gloat a little...


KHAN GO BOOM (Formerly “Sweet’s Reprise”)


KHAN
Well this really sucks
I guess it's my farewell
But you're sitting ducks
Time to ring the final bell.
Genesis will end all this hardship
Try to leave us now
Once more with starships
My revenge is done
I stab at thee from heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllllllllllllllllll


CHEKOV
Sir, the mains are back online!


KHAN
Showtime!


KIRK
Go, Sulu!


The Enterprise zips away at warp speed.


KHAN
HEY! That’s not how this is supposed to...


BOOOM!!!!


And they lived happily ever after...for about five seconds. Then Kirk gets the call from engineering.


McCOY
Jim...You better get down here.


KIRK
Not right now, Bones. I’m basking the glow of victory.


McCOY
It’s important.


KIRK
So is basking.


McCOY (whispering)
It’s Spock.


KIRK
What? I can’t hear a thing you’re muttering.


McCOY
SPOCK!


KIRK
Spock, it’s for you.


He looks over at the science console and realizes that his friend and science officer is missing. The light dawns. Kirk’s face fills with horror, he goes racing down there, sees Spock, yada yada yada. You know the drill. Separated by the protective glass (or transparent aluminum or whatever) of the chamber where Spock is dying, the Vulcan informs his long-time friend Kirk of the logic of his actions...


KATRA (Formerly "Life")


SPOCK
You're my friend,
And you will always be
But now it's time for me
to die right at your feet


Now that we
Were able to stop Khan,
From screwing up this song
Why don't you run along?


Now I call,
It quits
But the ship
Is fixed
Do not grieve
My friend
I know you
will get
what you
most want


To lose the Admirals bars
To fly among the glittering starrrrrrrrrrrrrs


It's logical
It's logical


It's so human to cry and pout
You've no reason to cry and pout


Many’s needs
Outweigh the needs of few
There's nothing left to dooooooooo
I'm dying pretty soon.


Still we're friends
Will be forever more
And who knows what's in storrrrrrrrre
See you in Star Trek Four....


I can't stand
Humans
All those E-
-motions
You and I
are friends
But now it
Must end
Well that
Depends...


On if you let me go
On if you know enough to know
In McCoy's mind
I'm left behind


There was no pain,
No fear, no doubt
Till I gave away
My katraaaaaa.


So that's my refrain
My brain's on loan
I gave it to Bones
My Katraaaaaa.
The doctor has my Katraaaaaa


So go to Vulcan and yank it out
Please go to Vulcan....


Spock begins spasming and flinging himself around the dilithium chamber until finally, as the music reaches its most frantic, he dies.


KIRK
Now that he's gone
I wander what
My good friend Spock
Was saying?
This pain that I feel
Only can heal
By Trekking.
I have to go on trekking
So one of us is trekking....


SCOTTY
The hottest air in this room
comes from the Admiral




With the adventure at an end, the remaining crew of the Enterprise gathers in the torpedo room to launch Spock’s corpse into space. As the torpedo casket moves down the track, a song begins, and it sure as hell ain’t Amazing Grace.


HOW CAN WE END IT HERE? (Formerly “Where Do We Go From Here?”)


SAAVIK
How can we end it here?


SAAVIK/KIRK
How can we end it here?


KIRK
The movie’s done
And we blew up Khan


SAAVIK/KIRK
But we lost someone who’s dear
How can we end it here?


McCOY/SPOCK’S VOICE
Why is my head unclear?
Feel that Spock’s brain is near


ALL
Understand we’ll be back again
There’s a sequel due next year


McCOY
Help me!


ALL
How can we end it here?
Kirk’s life is back in gear
McCoy is acting weird
And Spock’s return
Is a big concern
We can tell Trek Three is near


How can we end it here?


How can we end it here?


How can we end...IT HERE?

Vic’try was not free
I can’t believe that I’ve lost
Spock


SPOCK’S VOICE
I’ve died, but we’ve four films to go


KIRK _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _SPOCK
I have no fear _ _ _ _ So you can find me here


KIRK
I know I’ll come back here.
