McCoy: "Jim, try to be open about this."

Kirk: "About what? That I've made the wrong choices in my life? That I turned left when I should've turned right? I know what my weaknesses are."


Five months after the death of Capt. Kirk on the Enterprise-B, the event is still having a profound impact on those who knew the heroic Captain. After emerging from a self-imposed isolation on Vulcan, Spock finally decides to visit the ship, with mixed results. Capt. Harriman is frustrated and made guilty by it, Lt. Cmdr. Scott Heisenberg is not surprised by it, Capt. Montgomery Scott retreats from the pain, Ens. Demora Sulu feels an understandable amount of uncertainty in her choice to remain on the ship, and Cmdr. Saavik begins to fulfill a promise much sooner than she had originally thought possible when she made the vow.

Story Notes:

"And does not life go down with a better grace, foaming in full body over a precipice, than miserably straggling to an end in sandy deltas? For surely, at whatever age it overtake the man, this is to die young. The noise of the mallet and chisel is scarcely quenched, the trumpets are hardly done blowing, when, trailing with him clouds of glory, this happy-starred, full-blooded spirit shoots into the spiritual land."

–Robert Louis Stevenson

For those who are wondering, Scott Heisenberg is "Mr. Adventure" from Star Trek III: The Search For Spock. You can read about his other adventures with the Enterprise crew in "Mr. Adventure's Wild Adventure" and "Mr. Adventure, Intergalactic Transporter Chief of Mystery."  They're not necessary to understanding Heisenberg in this story; they simply add to the depth of the character. Cheers!
