Re: What Was Scotty Doing There?

^Not necessarily. As Decker himself says, his job as first officer is to point out alternatives. In Ex Machina, Kirk wonders about his decision to enter the V'Ger cloud and decides that Decker may only have been playing devil's advocate because his position as XO called for it. Had the latter been in the captain's chair as Kirk was, he may have made the same choices.
