Instead of addressing all the nasty things in this post point by point, I'll limit my response to one example: the captain/lieutenant matter. Look, you either deliberately misinterpretted the point I was obviously making or you are a moron. Which is it? You've been moving the goalposts all through this "debate": in one post, Kirk is so much a nebbish a needs his best friend to set him up with a girl, in another you never suggest any such thing. Anyway, I'm done with you. EDIT: I had forgotten the "beat your next capatin at chess" line. So you make one good point in all that typing. Nicely done, old bean.
