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.
