In TOS, when Jim Kirk encountered Captain Christopher in "Tomorrow Is Yesterday," he didn't treat him like some kind of simpleton or child. He didn't feel any need to pat him on the head and "re-educate" him.
In the same episode, wasn't the USAF guard forced to wander the transporter room without explanation given to where he was? Was he eveb given a chair?
