What does Kirk need with a toupee?
Anyway, serving up a HUGE portion of willful suspension of disbelief here, the people watching from the ship gasp at this violent act. Bones helps the singed and smoking Kirk to sit up, and he asks, "Why is God angry?" Sybok asks "God" why "He" hurt his friend. "He doubts me," "God" says. Spock steps forward and restates Kirk's question. He's lightning-bolted to the ground as well. "God" asks Bones if he doubts as well. Bones tells him he'd doubt any god who would intentionally give pain for his own enjoyment. Sybok tells "God" to stop, adding that "Him" the god of Shakari wouldn't do this. "Shakari, a vision you created," "God" tells him, "an eternity I've been imprisoned in this place -- the ship, I must have the ship. Now, give me what I want!" Spock stands up and tells his dumbfounded half-brother, "This is not the god of Shakari or any other god." Sybok still doesn't get it, and says so. "Reveal yourself!" he orders. We go into "God's" eye and "He" laughs, taking on the appearance of Sybok. "What's wrong," "He" asks, "don't you like this face? I have so many but this one suits you best!" Wha? I don't get it. Sybok bawls and shakes his head in denial. "God" tells Sybok to bring the ship closer so he can "join with it," or else Sybok will have to watch his friends "die horribly." Sybok looks imploringly at Kirk, who flips open his communicator and says, "Kirk to Enterprise, listen carefully."
