I don’t believe in a no-win scenario.
This line was spoken by William Shatner as Admiral Kirk. He is explaining to Lt. Saavik (Kirstie Alley) his solution for the Kobayashi Maru, the no-win training scenario in the opening scene of “The Wrath of Khan” as a test of character for officer track cadets.
In the simulator, the cadet commands a simulated star ship. They receive a distress call from a friendly ship in hostile territory just barely over an interstellar border. If they attempt a rescue, they will probably start an all out war and certainly lose all hands on all ships. If they do not, they will avoid starting a war, but the Kobayashi Maru will be lost with all hands and the cadet risks reprimand from their superiors.
Kirk’s solution, having the virtue of never being tried before, was to surreptitiously reprogram the simulator to make the Klingons fear his name because he expected to eventually gain a reputation for being the best captain ever. Thanks to the reputation of Louie Keen and the efforts of the Uranus Space Force, Uranus is always Klingon free.
