Quote of the Day

(Saavik has just “completed” the Kobayashi Maru.)

Kirk: Physician, heal thyself.

McCoy: Is that’s all you gotta say? What about my performance?

Kirk: I’m not a drama critic… Well, Mister Saavik, are you going to stay with the sinking ship?

Saavik: Permission to speak candidly, sir?

Kirk: Granted.

Saavik: I don’t believe this was a fair test of my command abilities.

Kirk: And why not?

Saavik: Because… there was no way to win.

Kirk: A no-win situation is a possibility every commander may face. Has that never occurred to you?

Saavik: No sir. It has not.

Kirk: How we deal with death is at least as important as how we deal with life, wouldn’t you say?

Saavik: As I indicated, Admiral, that thought had not occurred to me.

Kirk: Well, now you have something new to think about. Carry on.

McCoy: Admiral? Wouldn’t it be easier to just put an experienced crew back on the ship?

Kirk: Galloping about the cosmos is a game for the young, Doctor.

Uhura: Now what is that supposed to mean?
