"An alarm goes off in a bedroom and a giant dog jumps into the bed of a married couple (Noel Clarke, Nazneen Contractor). 


"Together they take their hover car through the country side to a hospital. 


"While talking to a doctor, patients glide by asleep on hovering gurneys.  


"The couple stand over the bed of a little girl. The sick child looks very ill. A stuffed toy is replaced with a new toy. The mother is filled with grief, but the man is fueled with rage. 


"Standing outside, someone speaks from behind the husband's shoulder.

"I can save her," the voice says.

Startled the husband responds "What did you say?"

The voice repeats itself, "Your daughter, I can save her."

"Who are you?" the husband asks.

"'Hikaru Sulu' (John Cho) is also on board and he remains silent as Uhura gives Spock a goodbye kiss on his helmet.

"Spock is then lowered, but abandoned when the shuttlecraft takes on damage. Spock's line to the ship is severed and Uhura and Sulu retreat to the 'Enterprise'.

"Back on the planet Bones and Kirk drop the scrolls, revealing this to be Kirk's ruse to get the villagers out of their town before the volcano destroyed it. They run tiwards the ocean, with the Enterprise waiting for them in the water."

"Once on board Spock's predicament is revealed. Making contact, Spock is reluctantly informed that a 'rescue mission' would defeat the purpose of the main mission and that 'the needs of many outweigh the needs of one'.

"Kirk asks Bones what Spock would do if the situation were reversed, and Bones says he would let Kirk die..."
