An Unwinnable Scenario

One thing that remains constant in both the original Star Trek as well as the JJ universe of Star Trek is the use of the Kobyashi Maru test. Last year, I wrote a SIM how my character dealt with that test in a flashback. In the Abramsverse, it is shown that James Kirk cheated his way through, while in the Wrath of Khan, Kirk found a “unique solution”, according the Spock. A solution we are not sure of.

The Kobyashi Maru test, in case you are unaware, is a test that deals with an unwinnable scenario. And therefore, this weeks poll deals with this scenario. Whether your character did take the test or not, how do you think your character(s) would have dealt with such a scenario? Would they have cheated? If so how? Or would they have actually tried to beat the scenario without cheating? And again, if so, how? Or, would your character have not bothered trying as he or she knew it was unwinnable, so therefore, why bother.

So head on down to the forums and cast your vote. Like Starfleet, if they think its important to know how individuals deal with this scenario, then so do we.
