there's no faulty moral compass or meaningful debate here. Kirk was stopping a genocidal war criminal and acting to preserve innocent lives.
Well, that settles that. Good thing the Metrons didn't have you fight the Gorn.
Isn't that really comparing apples and oranges?

Kirk's offer of help is rebuffed, so he makes sure Nero is unable to trouble anyone else ever again. I've never seen the dispute here? He's rebuffed by Kruge, so he kicks him in the face several times until he falls to his death. Poor Chang never even got the offer of help as Kirk and Sulu poured it on until the Bird-of-Prey was dust. Yet I've never seen anyone complain about either action.
