Great Moments In Insubordination, Kirk-Style!!

How does Kirk get away with it?

He and a shuttle crew are transporting Star Fleet Admiral Tailen Kahn to a ceremony admitting a new planet into the Federation. But, as will happen, they crash on some mysterious planet...

Ah, so he's only an "administrative" admiral, so his orders don't count. Well, played, Kirk, but I'm not sure how that will play at the court-martial, where you'll doubtless be judged by...admirals.

Anyway, two nifty facts about Admiral Kahn.

First, he's packin' heat!

Secondly, he has the oddest damn propeller thingie in his backpack...


Oh, and the court-martial? The admiral briefly became one with the "fundamental forces of creation," and decided that their differences were "pitifully insignificant." Seriously.

Damn it Kirk, you've escaped punishment this time...but one of these star dates...

From Star Trek #31 (1975)

Like I've said, Kirk sold his soul to the devil. "Lucian" my foot.
