Time to Be The Captain


"It's an old naval tradition. Whoever's in command of a ship, regardless of rank, is referred to as 'captain.' "

"You mean if I had to take command, I would be called 'captain,' too?"

"Cadet, by the time you took command, there'd be nobody left to call you anything."

- O'Brien and Nog


Rear-Admiral Kirk: 
Why! Bless me, Doctor! 
What beams you into this neck of the woods?

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart :
'Beware Romulans bearing gifts.' 
Happy Birthday, Jim.

Rear-Admiral Kirk: 
Romulan Ale! 
Why, Bones, you know this is illegal.

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart :
I only use it for medicinal purposes. 
I got aboard a ship that brings me in a case every now and then across the Neutral Zone. 
Now don't be a prig.

Rear-Admiral Kirk: 
Twenty-two, eighty-three.

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart :
Yeah well it takes this stuff a while to ferment. 
Here now, gimme. 
...Now you open this one.

Rear-Admiral Kirk:
I'm almost afraid to. 
What is it? Klingon aphrodisiacs?

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart : 
No.

Rear-Admiral Kirk:
Oh. ...Bones, this is 
...charming.

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart :
For most patients of your age, 
I generally administer Retnax Five.

Rear-Admiral Kirk:
I'm allergic to Retnax.

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart :
Exactly. Cheers!

Rear-Admiral Kirk:
Cheers! 
...Aahh!

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart :
Happy Birthday!

Rear-Admiral Kirk: 
I don't know what to say.

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart :
Well you could start by saying 
'Thank You'.

Rear-Admiral Kirk:
Thank you.

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart : 
Damnit, Jim, what the hell's the matter with you? 
Other people have birthdays. 
Why are we treating yours like a funeral?

Rear-Admiral Kirk:
Bones, I don't want to be lectured.

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart :
What the hell do you want? 

...This is not about age, ...and you know it. 

This is about you flying a goddamn computer console when you wanna be out there hopping Galaxies.

Rear-Admiral Kirk:
Spare me your notions of poetry, please. 
We all have our assigned duties.

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart :

Bull. 

You're hiding 
...hiding behind rules and regulations.

Rear-Admiral Kirk: 
Who am I hiding from?

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart : 
From yourself, Admiral!

Rear-Admiral Kirk:
Don't mince words, Bones, 
What do you really think?

CMO Leonard H. McCoy, 
Son of David - The Heart :
Jim, I'm your doctor and I'm your friend. 

Get back your command. 

Get it back before you turn into part of this collection. 

Before you really do grow old.

Rear-Admiral Kirk :
 We've got a problem. 
Something may be wrong at Regula I. 
We've been ordered to investigate.

Captain Spock - The Head : 
If memory serves, Regula I is a scientific research laboratory.

Rear-Admiral Kirk :
I told Starfleet all we had was a boatload of children but 
...we're the only ship in the Quadrant. 

Spock, these cadets of yours, how good are they? 
How will they respond under real pressure?


Captain SPOCK - The Head: 
As with all living things, each according to his gifts. 
Of course, the ship is yours.


Rear-Admiral Kirk :
No, that won't be necessary, just get me to Regula I.


Captain SPOCK - The Head: 
As a teacher on a training mission, I am content to command the Enterprise. 

If we are to go on actual duty, it is clear that the senior officer on board must assume command.



Admiral KIRK :
It may be nothing, ...garbled communications. 
You take the ship.


Captain SPOCK - The Head: 
Jim, you proceed from a false assumption. 
I am a Vulcan. I have no ego to bruise.


Admiral KIRK :
You're about to remind me that logic alone dictates your actions.


Captain SPOCK - The Head: 
I would not remind you of that which you know so well. 

If I may be so bold,  
it was a mistake for you to accept promotion. 

Commanding a starship is your first best destiny. 

Anything else is a waste of material.



Captain KIRK :
I would not presume to debate you.





Science Officer 

Capt. SPOCK - The Head: 
That is wise. 
In any case, were I to invoke logic, logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.





Captain KIRK: 
Or the one.





Science Officer 

Capt. SPOCK - The Head: 
You are my superior officer. 
You are also my friend. 
I have been and always shall be yours.




Captain Rabbit :
Okay — time to be The Captain...

So dead brother, huh? 
Yeah that can be annoying.

Thor: 
Well, he’s been dead before. 
But this time, I think it really might be true.

Rocket: 
And you said you hate your sister and your dad?

Thor: 
Both dead.

Capt. Rocket:
You still got a mom, though?

Thor: 
Killed by a dark elf. 

Capt. Rocket:
Best friend?

Thor: 
Stabbed through the heart.

Capt. Rocket:
You sure you’re up to this mission?

Thor: 
Absolutely! 
[ starts crying ]
Rage, vengeance, anger, lost are tremendous motivators to clear the mind. 
So I’m good to go. 

Capt. Rocket:
Yeah, but this Thanos guy you’re talking about...
he’s the toughest there is.

Thor: 
Well, he’s never fought me. 

Capt. Rocket:
Yeah he has

Thor :
Well, he’s never fought me twice. 
And I’m getting a new hammer, don’t forget. 

Capt. Rocket:
Well, it better some hammer. 

Thor: 
You know, I’m 1500 years old. 
I’ve killed twice as many enemies as that. 
And every one of them would have rather killed me than not succeeded. 

I’m only alive because fate wants me alive. 

Thanos is just the latest of a long line of bastards, and he’ll be the latest to feel my vengeance. 

Fate wills it so. 

Capt. Rocket: 
And what if you’re wrong?

Thor: 
Well, if I’m wrong, what more could I lose?

Rocket: 
I could lose a lot. Me, personally? I could lose a lot.





[Enterprise-A bridge]

Gen. CHANG
Have you not a shred of decency ...in you, Kirk? 
We come in peace - and you blatantly defile that peace. 

And for that - I shall blow you out of the stars.

Capt. KIRK: 
We haven't fired.

Capt. SPOCK: 
Captain - according to our data banks, we have
...Twice.

Lt. VALERIS: 
Captain, they're coming about!

Capt. SPOCK: 
They're preparing to fire.

Cmdr. CHEKOV: 
Shields up, Captain?

Lt. VALERIS: 
Captain, our shields!

Cmdr. CHEKOV: 
Shields up, Captain?

Captain James T. 
KIRK:
(It means "Church")
Signal Our Surrender.

UHURA: 
Captain?!

Captain KIRK: 
We surrender!

Capt. "Rabbit" :

Okay... Time to be The Captain...

*****
The Ancient One :
You Cannot Beat a River into Submission - 
You Must Surrender to It's Currents
and Use It's Power as Your Own

I..? I... 
Control It by Surrendering Control..?
That Doesn't Make Sense..!


Not Everything Does - Not Everything Has to

Your Intellect has Taken You Far in Life -
But it Will Take You No Further :

Surrender, Stephen.

Silence Your Ego
and 
Your Power Will Rise
I've spent so many years, peering through 'Time',
looking at This exact Moment - but I can't see past it.

I've prevented countless, terrible futures - and after each one, there's always another.

And they all  lead here - but never further.

You think this is where you die..?

You wonder what I see in your  future..?

No...
...yes.


I never saw Your Future - only it's possibilities.

You've such a Capacity for Goodness -
You always excelled - 
But not because you craved Success
But Because of your Fear of Failure

It's what made me a great Doctor.

It's precisely what kept you from Greatness

Arrogance and Fear still keep you from learning 
The Simplest 
and 
Most Significant Lesson of All :

Which is...?

IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU



“It was a Fool’s Leap, a Shot in The Dark. 
But anything of any value in our lives, whether that be a career, a work of art, a relationship, will always start with such a leap. 

And in order to be able to make it, you have to put aside the FEAR of FAILING and the DESIRE of SUCCEEDING

You have to do these things completely purely without fear, without desire
Because things that we do without lust or result, are the purest actions that we shall ever take.

Arrogant Presumption





KIRK: Dining on ashes?

SPOCK: You were right. It was arrogant presumption on my part that got us into this situation. 

You and the Doctor might have been killed.

KIRK: The night is young. 

You said it yourself. It was logical. 

Peace is worth a few personal risks. 

...You're a great one for logic. I'm a great one for rushing in where angels fear to tread. 

We're both extremists. 

Reality is probably somewhere in between us. 

...I couldn't get past the death of my son.

SPOCK: I was prejudiced by her accomplishments as a Vulcan.

KIRK: Gorkon had to die before I understood how prejudiced I was.

SPOCK: Is it possible 

...that we two, you and I, have grown so old and so inflexible 

...that we have outlived our usefulness? 

...Would that constitute.... a joke..?

KIRK: Don't crucify yourself. It wasn't your fault.

SPOCK: I was responsible.

KIRK: For no actions but your own.

SPOCK: That is not what you said at your trial.

KIRK: That was as Captain of a ship. Human beings...

SPOCK: But Captain, we both know that I am not human.

KIRK: Do you want to know something? 

...Everybody's human.

SPOCK: I find that remark ...insulting.

KIRK: Come on. I need you.
