    Congratulations. You have chosen wisely.
    Check out “A Taste of Armageddon” for a sample of Kirk’s “diplomacy.”

    Two warring planets have engaged in a sanitary war for 500 years. Casualties are calculated on computers and the population is obligated to surrender themselves for disintegration. The Enterprise becomes a casualty and the crew is expected to adhere to the terms of the war.
    Kirk will have none of it.

    “I didn’t start it, Councilman, but I’m liable to finish it.”
    “Death, destruction, disease, horror. That’s what war is all about, Anan. That’s what makes it a thing to be avoided. You’ve made it neat and painless. So neat and painless, you’ve had no reason to stop it. And you’ve had it for five hundred years. Since it seems to be the only way I can save my crew and my ship, I’m going to end it for you, one way or another.”

    It is one of my favorite episodes.

    All the diplomacy in the galaxy couldn’t stop Soran. When Picard needed to get the job done, he went to Kirk.
