Star Trek No. 47.  A freak shuttlecraft accident – and suddenly Captain Kirk and most of his senior officers find themselves adrift in space, with no hope of rescue, no hope of repairing their craft, or restoring communications – with nothing, in short but time on their hands.  Time enough for each to tell the story of the Kobayashi Maru — the Starfleet Academy test given to command cadets. Nominally a tactical exercise, the Kobayashi Maru is in fact a test of character revealed in the choices each man makes – and does not make. As Starfleet Cadets, Kirk, Chekov, Scotty, and Sulu each faced the Kobayashi Maru…and became, in turn, Starfleet officers.
