Zorran turned towards James and indicated that he should enter an empty cell. James lifted his gun. Zorran smiled and the gun disappeared. In this moment of theatre Spock used his Vulcan nerve pinch on Zorran. Around the room lights dimmed and doors opened. James smelt fetid air and saw pulsating tubes. Then he heard Spock command the craft to return him to Shakespeare’s Theatre.

Unfortunately James found himself standing on a stage in the year 1606. Two dim lights lit the scene and Lady Macbeth lay dead at his feet. A dagger touched James throat. Where was Spock when you needed him.
