"I have something for you," the captain said. "Here."
"A moebius strip?"
"Cut the strip down the middle, twice, and it becomes two interlocking rings."
"That's only the wrapping. Look inside."
Spock gingerly removed the strip, careful only to handle its single face. What he saw inside astonished him.
"Do you like it?" Kirk asked.
"Extraordinary! A klein bottle. How ever did you manage it?"
Kirk winked. "Magic."
"I have something for you." Spock shyly brought out a data chit.
"Retrieved from the Iconians, it's the entire contents of the Library of Alexandria."
"Oh, Spock, it's perfect!"
