Re: OTHER Starship Captains - Symbolism, Foreshadowing & Plot Devices
You mentioned that you hated Commodore Stone (Court Martial). I don't see why. He seemed to be a squared away symbol of Starfleet authority, and I don't see how, from the video evidence, he could have drawn any other conclusion than that Kirk was guilty. He even offers Kirk a way out. Seems like a decent guy to me.
