The USS Starship is in orbit over a small and insignificant planet, referred to as earth, a small type “M” planet inhabited by a primitive humanoid species.
The story unfolds:
On the bridge of the USS Enterprise:
Captain Kirk: Sulu, what are the readings from that class M planet on the view screen?
Sulu: Ah…captain, it appears the earthlings are out of control again.
Kirk: “What is it this time?”
Sulu: “Ah…it appears the Republikons want to invoke the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition.”
Kirk: “Locate Dr. Spock now.
Klaxon: Spock to the bridge
Spock in muted tone: Yes Captain, what is it?
Kirk: The Republikons are invoking Ferengi acquisition laws on this class “M” planet’s surface.
Spock: As before, these backward creatures need the Obama mind-meld.
Kirk: Yes, the Vulcan nerve touch is unnecessary. The Republikons are weak. The mind-meld will suffice.
Spock: I will beam down now captain.
Kirk: Wait Spock, we’ll go to the planet’s surface together. And Spock, bring your ethnic / skin colour modulation kit with you.
Spock: Understood captain.
