Re: Shields Down!

...And even more prominently so when Kirk chooses not to raise shields when the supporting cast already makes panicky requests for being allowed to do so. It's stupid bravado that achieves nothing; a skipper free of self-esteem problems would have no trouble raising the shields well in advance of meeting the threat. But playing chicken looks manly.
