Subvulcanean Homesick Blues
Bones examines Kirk and declares him dead. Spock looks at the ground and schlumps away. T'Pau says, "I grieve vith thee." I doubt it, lady. Bones calls Enterprise and tells them to stand by to beam them up. Now, when they give the order to beam up, do they have to tell them to lock onto Bones and a body? Presumably corpses don't have bio-signs to be locked onto. Bones walks over to Spock and says, "As strange as it may seem, Mr. Spock, you're in command now. Any orders?" Spock, stunned, tells him to beam up and he will follow shortly. "You will instruct Mr. Chekov to plot a course to the nearest starbase, where I must surrender myself to the authorities." Spock glares at T'Pau. Bones leaves with Kirk's body. We hear it, but we don't see it.
