Re: TSFS Destruct Sequence: Why Chekov?

Perhaps another operative question, besides "Who gets to input the destruct sequence on the Bridge", might have been, "who is best able to perform the complicated transporter sequence that needs to be programmed?"

At that moment they needed to beam themselves down to Genesis, and beam the Klingon crew over at effectively the same time. Perhaps Sulu is the best transporter operator in the group (after Scotty himself, but Scotty had seniority and was still needed on the bridge for the destruct sequence.)

Therefore perhaps it was just a case of Kirk allocating his resources most efficiently?
