Kirk: Now now, Mr Spock, Starfleet Command thought that more casual uniforms would create a more productive working enviroment.
Spock: Lieutenant, I am bound by the Admiral's standing orders to tell you to, "Go to hell," for citing regulations.
Kirk: Well I let my ship get blasted with it's shields down, we lost dozens of cadets, that whole Genesis project fell into the hands of a madman and was destroyed and Captain Spock was killed... oh and we had to destroy Reliant too. Can you fix my ship now? I have more stuff to take care of.
