Fixed that for ya.
Some of the outbursts were due to the stress of the moment. Stiles had a personal grudge against the Romulans, and he disliked Spock due to his resembling them. McCoy's insults were due to his general crankiness. Boma deserved to be left behind on Taurus II.
Spock kept his emotions under control enough that petty insults usually had no effect on him (exception: All Our Yesterdays).
Boma really should have been officially reprimanded, and perhaps busted to ensign.
