Halp, F-Listies, Halp!: Book citations

Hey gang,

Those of you with hardcopies of the Starfleet Academy books, could you get me page numbers for these passages? I have the e-editions which don't translate to hard copy numbers, and I need them for an article I'm writing.

From The Delta Anomaly

Just as McCoy leaped, a black hissing swarm rose from the spot where he’d just been standing. It was an ambush. Kirk held his fire; the nanites were too close. McCoy quickly activated the sound emitter just as strands of oily smoke surged around him like the tentacles of a black octopus. The cloud froze again, but a few smears of black dust stained McCoy’s clothing.
“Damn!” he said, looking down. “It’s on me.”
Kirk reached in his backpack, pulled out the hose, and turned on the vacuum. He waved it around McCoy, and its powerful suction cleaned the air of black bits in just seconds. Then he carefully dabbed it at the dark smudges on McCoy’s clothes. It sucked up the nanites but also tore off two patches of the doctor’s Starfleet jumpsuit.
“Ouch. I told you it was powerful,” said McCoy, examining a reddned patch of now-exposed skin on his arm

From The Edge

She placed a hand on [McCoy’s] arm, remembering back to what Spock had said about her flirting. She meant even less by it now, but she figured if she could use a bit of flirtation to her benefit, then so be it.
But her touch went unnoticed. McCoy was too busy exchanging a suspicious glance with Kirk. Uhura was trying to find a way to ask about the eye contact, but Lynne beat her to it.
“What was that?” Lynne asked.
“What?” Kirk replied, throwing up his hands in mock confusion. If he ever wanted to make it in Starfleet, he was going to have to work on his innocence act. An enemy captain would notice that right away if they were ever in a showdown.
“I think she means that look you two shared,” Uhura said. “And don’t ask ‘what look,’ because it couldn’t have been more obvious.”
“Can you blame me for looking at him?” McCoy joked. “He’s just so dreamy.”

Both passages are towards the end of the books. Thanks tons in advance!!!!!

ETA: Citations found! Thank you, nanashi_tomo!!!!
