But McCoy didn't know of Starfleet's plans to mothball the Enterprise. Ok, if that's your interpretation of Morrow's actions, fine. But that's a little too overly-complicated for me based on what I saw. Morrow didn't seem to give a shit about Kirk until Kirk started talking about going to Genesis. Morrow stated that it's illegal for anyone to go there, which was true. He then gave Kirk some good advice about not risking his career by doing something stupid while at the same time showing his complete ignorance and total lack of understanding towards one of the founding races of the Federation and their death rites. I didn't see anything personal in Morrow's remarks, nor did I get the impression that Starfleet was keeping some sort of eye on Kirk. All I saw was some idiot admiral.
