*****

I am Saavik, daughter of Vulcan.
I shall not let the Fires prevail.
I am in control.
I am logical and calm.

I am Saavik, daughter of Vulcan.
I have erased all traces of Evaste.
I must now depart Romulus.
I must warn the Federation.

I am Saavik, daughter of Vulcan.
I shall not let the Fires prevail.
I am in control.
I am logical and calm.

I am Saavik, daughter of Vulcan.
I--No! No Outsiders! Alien!
I must not kill.
I must not...ATTACK!

I am Saavik, daughter of Vulcan.
I have let the Fires prevail.
I must succumb.
I must wait for Spock.

I am Saavik, daughter of Vulcan.
I have waited for Spock.
I still wait for him.
I will continue to wait for him.

I am Saavik, daughter of Vulcan.
I have sated the Fires.
I am back in control.
I am logical and calm once more.

I am Saavik, daughter of Vulcan.
