during a particularly grueling alpha shift Jim notices something strange on the viewscreen; he turns quickly to spock, ‘some kind of anomaly Mr Spock?’ ‘no captain…it appears to be a bowl of breakfast food known as Reese’s.’ ‘WHAT? CANDY FOR BREAKFAST?’ Spock spins around and says, ‘NOT CANDY, REESE’S PUFFS CEREAL’ so he sliiiides Jim a bowl. He crunches into it and WHAM! his mouth goes CRAZY! that smooth combo of peanut butter and chocolatey taste attacking his tastebuds! ‘AND ITS PART OF THIS COMPLETE BREAKFAST!’

When asked why he has such a strong interest in learning everything there is to know about the technical abilities of a Starship, Kirk said he was facing one of his own fears. As a ship captain, he realizes he is not just responsible for an incredibly complex machine, but also a crew. In space, getting something just a little bit wrong is not an option. Believing that his high confidence in himself, and his crew, is his greatest tool in completing any mission, Kirk always wants to be sure that he never puts himself, or his crew, in a situation where his lack of technical knowledge increases the jeopardy of the situation.
