The following quote has to be one of my all-time favorite from TV shows and movies. It’s a quote taken from the 1967 Star Trek episode “The Trouble with Tribbles”. Somehow, I feel like poor Scotty is describing not only Kirk, but a lot of today’s pilots who have started to take themselves a little bit too seriously… enjoy!Scotty: Well, captain, er, the Klingons called you a tin plated over bearing swaggering dictator with delusions of godhood. Capt. Kirk: Is that all? Scotty: No sir, they also compared you with a Denebian slime devil. Capt. Kirk: I see. Scotty: And then they said that you were… Capt. Kirk: I get the picture, Scotty. Scotty: Yes, sir. Capt. Kirk: And after they said all this, that’s when you hit the Klingons. Scotty: No, sir. Capt. Kirk: No? Scotty: No, er, I didn’t. You told us to avoid trouble. Capt. Kirk: Oh, yes. Scotty: Well, I didn’t see that it was worth fighting about. After all, we’re big enough to take a few insults, aren’t we? Capt. Kirk: What was it they said that started the fight? Scotty: They called the Enterprise a garbage scow! Sir. Capt. Kirk: I see. And that’s when you hit the Klingon? Scotty: Yes, sir. Capt. Kirk: You hit the Klingons because they insulted the Enterprise, not because they… Scotty: Well, sir, this was a matter of pride! Capt. Kirk: All right, Scotty dismissed. Oh, Scotty, you’re restricted to quarters until further notice. Scotty: Yes, sir. Thank you, sir. That’ll give me a chance to catch up on my technical journals.
