Are you kidding? That's ALL it could be. The man literally can't keep it in his pants. He was even tempted by Miri, for cryin' out loud! Go back and watch. You know I'm right.

Nope he was just humouring her so as not to break her heart while he was getting help from her. He was just being nice.

This was McCoy having the yeoman slip Decker's resignation of commission in with the other paperwork so he wouldn't notice, a la Radar O'Reilly

He LITERALLY can't keep it in his pants? So all those times we saw him wearing pants without his penis hanging out were, what, a Talosian illusion?

Sorry, the misuse of the word "literally" is a pet peeve of mine... :-)

He was literally reimbursing Starfleet for torn tunics.

This is hysterical. Decker forcibly takes over the ship from Spock, spends the few hours he's in the chair sending them all to what promises to be a horrible burning death, yet he still takes the time to sign some report. When the tons of mint flavored sugar sticks shows up (Decker's one indulgence) and Kirk demands to know who authorized it, he'll have another reason to curse the man.

Re: What do you think Kirk is having to sign for all the time?

When I was a Company Commander I was signing stuff all the time! Reports, awards, evaluations, inventories, etc.

Now as a Contracting Officer I am signing my name to even more paperwork!!!

It's actually games of noughts-and-crosses he plays with all the new Yeoman, scrabble he plays with McCoy (when he's not on the Bridge), and brain training games--when there's no new talent arrived on the ship.

He could be signing birthday cards...with a crew of 430, there'd be at least one per day on average.

Re: What do you think Kirk is having to sign for all the time?

Serious answer - he probably has to review and sign / countersign ship department logs and the hardcopy of his captain's log / ships log. For example at my workplace, my manager and then admin have to sign off my weekly timesheets. Additionally, things like requisitions and damage would need to be signed for. It would appear that he prefers to do his admin work sitting in the captain's chair, rather than spend a couple of hours each day holed up in this office doing paperwork. Probably because 1) doing paperwork is boring and 2) he's already on the bridge in case of emergency.

In jest, he's probably dealing with the child support payments for all the fatherless children he has left around the galaxy.

It's not a misuse; evidently it's a new use.

The Oxford English Dictonary, since September of 2011 has included this definition of literally:

"Used for emphasis or to express strong feeling while not being literally true: I have received literally thousands of letters.'"

Perhaps he came up with the "There's no money in the future" schtick to get out of this....
