Re: Charlie X Is Incredibly Brave

Indeed, Kirk was conceived as a flawed and very human hero from the beginning. From TMOST:
James T. Kirk is an idealist, rather sensitive, with a strong, complex personality. Constantly on trial within himself, he feels acutely the responsibility of his position and is therefore fully capable of letting the worry and the frustration lead him into error. Ignoring the fact that he is also capable of fatigue, Kirk is often inclined to push himself beyond human limits. When he must give in to fatigue, he condems himself because he is not superhuman.
Perfect heroes make for bad drama. Hell, even Superman has his off days.
