Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

Star Trek IV The Voyage Home Screenplay by HARVE BENNETT & NICHOLAS MEYER Story by STEVE MEERSON & PETER KRIKES REV. SHOOTING SCRIPT March 11, 1986

113 INT. NICHOL'S CUBICLE - DAY 113

An impressive glass-walled cubicle separating the boss from the factory chaos. Nichols leads Scotty and Bones inside.

NICHOLS Well, so much for the tour of our humble plant. I must say, Professor your knowledge of engineering is most impressive.

BONES Back home, we call him the miracle worker.

NICHOLS Indeed... May I offer you gentlemen anything?

A look between Bones and Scotty. Then:

SCOTTY Doctor Nichols, I might have something to offer you.

NICHOLS ... Yes?

SCOTTY I notice you're still working with polymers.

NICHOLS (mystified) Sill? What else would I be working with?

SCOTTY Ah, what else indeed? Let me put it another way: how thick would a piece of your plexiglass need to be at 60 feet by 10 feet to withstand the pressure of 18,000 cubic feet of water?

NICHOLS That's easy: 6 inches. We carry stuff that big in stock.

SCOTTY Yes, I noticed. Now suppose -- just suppose -- I could show you a way to manufacture a wall that would do the same job but was only an inch thick. would that be worth something to you, eh?

NICHOLS ... Are you joking?

BONES He never jokes... Perhaps the professor could use your computer.

NICHOLS Please...

He gestures, and Scotty sits at a nearby Macintosh. He surveys the machine quizzically, clears his throat, and in a loud voice says:

SCOTTY Computer --

Bones steps in quickly, picks up the "Mouse" and shoves it into Scotty's hand. Scotty looks at the mouse, baffled, then puts it to his lips like a mike.

SCOTTY (continuing) Hello? Computer...?

NICHOLS (bewildered) Just use the keyboard...

SCOTTY The keyboard... How quaint. 

Then, preparing his fingers like a concert pianist, he plunges to work furiously. 

114 CLOSE - COMPUTER SCREEN 114

An awesome series of figures and graphics are appearing. PULL BACK to reveal Scotty, now master of the keyboard, while Nichols watches in awe, next to Bones. with a flourish, Scotty hits a last command, and a wondrous three dimensional graphic appears.

NICHOLS (wide-eyed) Transparent aluminum?

SCOTTY That's the ticket, laddie. 

NICHOLS ... But it would take years just to figure out the dynamics of this matrix...!

BONES You'll be rich beyond the dreams of avarice.

SCOTTY So, is it worth something? Or should I just punch "clear"...

NICHOLS No! (then) No... What did you have in mind...?

BONES A moment alone, please.

BONES (continuing) You know, if we give him the formula, we'll be altering the future.

SCOTTY Why? how do you know he didn't invent the thing!

As Bones accepts the truth of this, we hear:

$1,000,000.00 plus today is nothing compared to pre-1980's and the spending power drastically increases every decade we back track thereof.

Nowadays we have more people such as successful; executives, professions, businesses of all sizes, actors/actresses, athletes, gamblers, lottery participants, musicians, crimminals, and etc. earning multiples of $1,000,000.00 upon $1,000,000.00.

All in all, millionaires have been on the increase from the 1980's and onwards. Is $1,000,000.00 plus getting dilluted as more people are entering the club?
