People often say that the world isn't painted in shades of black and white, it's painted in shades of grey. Personally I think that the world is painted in grey, with a bit of black and white mixed in. With those shades of black and white making the grey all the more tragic. This story pretty much epitomizes that. Which is kind of hard to do. This story was beautiful, and don't let anyone tell you differently.

I was so sure he wasn't really dead. Right up until this chapter. The hero never dies. That just sucks.

Question. Why not tell the other pirates that this will be there Powerful base ship the very best so they can capture dozens of other ships and sell them. Less money right then, but a stable livelihood.

Thanks! This was an awesome ride.

Brilliantly constructed conversation with the Admiral. Well done, indeed.

Noo! No, no, no, no, no! I can't believe you killed Kirk. Ok, it was a very Kirk way to go out.. makes perfect sense, and probably what would have happened in 75% of the episodes of TOS if he didn't have the crew's full trust - but I was just hoping he could be redeemed and we'd have a TOS remix.

Is it weird that I'm happy for Checkov that he got stunned? I don't think he'd have been able to live with himself if he'd let the negotiations go down without trying.

I like McCoy's strength in this scene - and also the maturity and composure he has in this universe. That may be one great loss from the 99.9% amazing KSM friendship - it allows McCoy to be a bit of a petulant teenager. As more of a loner, he becomes (in this universe) more of a hero in his own right.

Pet Russian? What, because Kirk puts up with his disapproval? I'm not sure that it's inappropriate, but I don't know where it came from.

I feel like Kirk's team is going to notice that he's slowly throwing all of them in jail. I'm all for it, and he's clearly much more interested in the esteem of the Starfleet personnel he's always looked up to than in that of his "gang," but I feel like this may get messy.

I like that Kirk is seeing Bones and Spock as the angels on his shoulder. That's definitely the role they play in TOS - the two extremes, presenting arguments that help him make the best decision.

Fabulous last line.
And poor Scotty...he must be having a coronary down in engineering. At least in TOS, he knew ahead of time to expect his ship in shambles.

On occasion, it's nice to see nasty!Kirk in a situation where everything doesn't go exactly according to plan. Go bridge crew!

Very clever solution to the "what turned Kirk?" question. It had occurred to me that his creative thinking in that case was not exactly in line with traditional academic integrity.

I love that both the bridge crew and McCoy were caught up in Kirk's charm before they remembered what a fundamentally bad person he is in this story.
