Visible crew/equipment: At approximately 01:32:50 on the Blu-Ray, you can see a diver releasing the mechanical whales. He is on the far right side of the screen, you can make out his head, body and left hand. He is visible for a good 8-9 seconds. If you have a different media source, it's during the Bird of Prey decent. You see a closeup of Kirk, followed by a closeup of Uhura and Gillian, then a close up looking down on the harpoon. It's in the following scene. (01:32:50)pcjohn
Kirk: Mr. Spock, have you accounted for the variable mass of whales and water in your time re-entry program?
Spock: Mr. Scott cannot give me exact figures, Admiral, so... I will make a guess.
Kirk: A guess? You, Spock? That's extraordinary.
Spock: [to Dr. McCoy] I don't think he understands.
McCoy: No, Spock. He means that he feels safer about your guesses than most other people's facts.
Spock: Then you're saying... It is a compliment?
McCoy: It is.
Spock: Ah. Then, I will try to make the best guess I can.
McCoy: Please do.
