Scene 5

Scene 5

  • The Reliant approaches the Enterprise, claiming their communications are down. Kirk, thinking the Reliant is still in Starfleet hands, declines to raise the Enterprise's shields.
  • Khan fires on the Enterprise, wreaking all manner of havoc and rendering the ship unable to engage warp drive.
  • He calls up Kirk to gloat before blowing them out of the sky.
  • Kirk offers to beam himself over in exchange for letting his crew live.
  • Khan agrees, but only if Kirk turns off all the information connected to the Genesis Device.
  • Kirk ostensibly agrees, then quietly asks Spock to get Reliant's prefix code, which will allow them to hack into Reliant's command console.
  • The ruse works: Enterprise orders Reliant to lower her shields and blasts it silly with a few well-placed phaser shots.
  • Reliant withdraws to conduct repairs and Enterprise limps its way towards Regula One.
