Re: Dear Doctor... How could you do this?
I'm sure you know that's not what I was saying. I'm sure you also know there were times in TOS when Scotty complained about what the ship was/would be going through and yet everything worked out fine.
It's entirely possible for a situation to be both utterly ridiculous and the best course of action available at the time.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
