IMHO, you could have marooned Kirk and Decker for 6 years on the planet and they still wouldn't have done the things Mr. Tracey did.
We honestly don't know what either would be capable of when it came right down to it. Starship commanders are a driven bunch and seemingly capable of breaking down in spectacular fashion (Ron Tracey/Matt Decker/Ben Maxwell). We watched Kirk blow a gasket at least twice in Arena and Obsession and had to be reigned in by either an outside force or threat to his position.
