    Maybe it's something we can transplant.

    TERRELL: Standard orbit please. Mister Beach. Any change in the surface scan?
    BEACH: Negative. Limited atmosphere, dominated by craylon gas, sand and high velocity winds. It's incapable of supporting lifeforms.
    CHEKOV: Does it have to be completely lifeless?
    TERRELL: Don't tell me you've found something.
    CHEKOV: We've picked up a minor energy flux reading on one dynoscanner.
    TERRELL: Damn! Are you sure? Maybe the scanner's out of adjustment.
    CHEKOV: I suppose it could be a particle of preanimate matter caught in the matrix.
    TERRELL: All right, get on the Comm-pic to Doctor Marcus.
    KYLE: Aye sir.
    TERRELL: Maybe it's something we can transplant.
    CHEKOV: You know what she'll say.

    CAROL (OC): Now let me get this straight. Something you can transplant?
    CHEKOV (OC): Yes, Doctor.

    [Regula I lab]

    CAROL: Something you can transplant? I don't know.
    TERRELL (on viewscreen): It might only be a particle of preanimate matter.
    CAROL: Then again it may not. You boys have to be clear on this. There can't be so much as a microbe or the show's off. Why don't you have a look? But if it is something that can be moved I want...
    TERRELL (on viewscreen): You bet, Doctor. We're on our way!
