Star Trek “And the Children Shall Lead...” (part 4 of 5)
Over in Kirk’s quarters, the Big Three watch more footage of Pinky McJumpsuit exhibiting all kinds of histrionics. This log entry is about how he once contacted Starfleet for a ship to be sent to Troyaikman. When Starfleet asked him why he wanted a ship in the first place, he didn’t know, which clued him in that “my mind was being directed!” Oddly, he must have decided not to share this realization with Starfleet.
Then we see his mouth gaping open wide as he screams, “God forgive us! Must destroy ourselves! Alien among us! The enemy from within!” Damn, what’s this guy on? He went from “somewhat apprehensive” to “Oops I Crapped My Pants” in about two-tenths of a second.
