The U.S.S. Constellation and its crew were destroyed by a giant robot ship which consumes planets for fuel, leaving only a guilt-ridden Commodore Decker aboard the crippled ship. Kirk beams over to begin repairs while Decker beams aboard the Enterprise. After Kirk loses radio contact with the Enterprise, the obsessed Commodore seizes command of the starship, determined to destroy the planet-killer, even at the cost of Kirk's ship and the entire crew.

Captain, sensors show this entire solar system has been destroyed. Nothing left but rubble and asteroids.
That's incredible. The star in this system is still intact. Only a nova could destroy like that.
Nonetheless, Captain, sensors show nothing but debris where we charted seven planets last year.
In a version with the updated CGI run on MyNetworkTV, the back-and-forth dialog where Spock says "Vulcans never bluff" is omitted. The sequence jumps from Spock's line, "You *are* relieved" to Decker saying, "Very well, Mister Spock." See more
