Re: The Tholian Web - more questions from the kids

Yeah, it was a "perfect storm" of stress and emotions that got McCoy to pop his cork like that. It's well to remember that McCoy was on the record as calling Spock "the best First Officer in the fleet" so it's not like there wasn't respect. Besides in "Amok Time" Spock chose McCoy as one of his friends to stand with him in a life/death situation.

ETA: I'm sure you and your wife do your best not to argue in front of the kids but maybe there's a life lesson you can pass along by noting that people who like or even love each other don't always speak gently to each other, for reasons that may be good or bad.
