Re: Why did Kirk Kill Mitchell?

I guess any attempt at retreating would have been aborted by Mitchell, who by that time very well knew Kirk was watching.

Not that this need have affected Kirk's decision-making in any way. But I don't see Kirk retreating anyway: he'd probably have been ready to stay back and ensure that Mitchell dies along with Dehner and himself, what with his mounting ire at Mitchell, his mounting despair over his own impotence, and his mounting understanding of the severity of the threat Mitchell really posed to life, the universe and everything.
