Re: TSFS Destruct Sequence: Why Chekov?

To me, that says more about Starfleet than it does Kirk and his friends.
Which gives Starfleet all the more reason to chastise the heroes!

That the vessel was a prototype carrying high expectations only makes what happened worse, because the Federation wasn't able to test their new technology as planned.
How so? Supposedly, yanking out a few chips would be trivially reversible, and the ship would be back at transwarp testing in no time flat.

Whether those tests were a splendid success or an embarrassing failure, we don't know. But we never were told that Scotty would have broken the ship for good.
