Dr. Morbius:
In times long past, this planet was the home of a mighty, noble race of beings who called themselves the Krell. Ethically and technologically they were a million years ahead of humankind, for in unlocking the mysteries of nature they had conquered even their baser selves, and when in the course of eons they had abolished sickness and insanity, crime and all injustice, they turned, still in high benevolence, upwards towards space. Then, having reached the heights, this all-but-divine race perished in a single night, and nothing was preserved above ground.

In times long past. . .
00:00:05.544 --> 00:00:09.464
. ..this planet was the home of a mighty and noble race of beings. . .
00:00:09.631 --> 00:00:12.133
. ..which called themselves the Krell.
00:00:12.301 --> 00:00:15.999
Ethically, as well as technologically...
00:00:15.179 --> 00:00:18.306
. ..they were a million years ahead of humankind...
00:00:18.474 --> 00:00:21.001
. ..for in unlocking the mysteries of nature...
00:00:21.268 --> 00:00:24.061
. ..they had conquered even their baser selves.
00:00:24.229 --> 00:00:27.398
And when, in the course of eons, they had abolished sickness. . .
00:00:27.566 --> 00:00:30.276
. ..and insanity and crime and all injustice...
00:00:30.444 --> 00:00:35.198
. ..they turned, still with high benevolence, outward toward space.
00:00:35.449 --> 00:00:39.016
Long before the dawn of man's history, they had walked our Earth...
00:00:39.328 --> 00:00:41.579
. ..and brought back many biological specimens.
00:00:41.747 --> 00:00:45.005
ADAMS: I see, that explains the tiger and the deer.
00:00:46.919 --> 00:00:49.999
The heights they had reached.
00:00:49.254 --> 00:00:53.716
But then, seemingly on the threshold of some supreme accomplishment. . .
00:00:53.884 --> 00:00:57.136
. ..which was to have crowned their entire history. . .
00:00:57.304 --> 00:01:01.933
. ..this all but divine race perished in a single night.
00:01:02.976 --> 00:01:06.687
In the 2000 centuries since that unexplained catastrophe...
00:01:06.855 --> 00:01:09.398
. ..even their cloud-piercing towers of-- Of glass...
00:01:09.566 --> 00:01:11.651
. ..and porcelain and adamantine steel. . .
00:01:11.819 --> 00:01:15.655
. ..have crumbled back into the soil of Altair-4, and nothing. . .
00:01:15.999 --> 00:01:18.866
. ..absolutely nothing, remains above ground.
00:01:19.006 --> 00:01:21.999
What were they like?
00:01:21.001 --> 00:01:24.747
No record of their physical nature has survived.
00:01:24.001 --> 00:01:29.669
Except, perhaps, in the form of this characteristic arch.
00:01:29.837 --> 00:01:31.999
I suggest you consider it in comparison. . .
00:01:32.955 --> 00:01:35.967
. ..to one of our functionally-designed human doorways.
00:01:51.001 --> 00:01:53.901
That recording was made by Krell musicians. . .
00:01:54.003 --> 00:01:56.654
. ..a half a million years ago.
