I thought it was funny/cute. It didn't seem to be done in malice, simply in jest. No harm was meant, I'm sure.

Anybody know what the R. stood for? Was it for a name, or was it just an R.?

R.
Huh! Yeah!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothin'!
LOL

I thought it was from his Pirate Days, James Arrrrr Kirk

James Romulus Kirk. You can see why he changed it.

In "The Changeling", Nomad mistakes Kirk for its creator, Jackson Roykirk. So perhaps R. was supposed to stand for Roy?

I need you guys to face the fact that a Starfleet Admiral would not try to destroy the Fedaration flagship with the loss of all hands.

Are you people out of your skull?

You need it?

Time to put the keyboard down and step away from the Internets.

In any case, since there's no such thing as a Starfleet Admiral, there are also no absolutes regarding their behavior.

Oh-kay, I think we're done. Thread closed.

And if, in the future, you should feel moved to ask another question like that - stifle the impulse. It's a bad idea.
