Re: The Final Frontier With Decker On Board
Decker WOULD have done better than Chekov at fooling Sybok into thinking he was captain.
No doubt, since he actually was
a captain and not just pretending to buy Kirk time. Better yet, Decker might have been leading the away team instead of Kirk, so Kirk could have talked to Sybok himself while Chekov stayed at the navigator station.
