If you were in Kirk's Shoes...
If you were Kirk during the rescue attempt on the Enterprise-B, would you have stayed in the center seat and let Harriman go down to deflector control, or would you have made the same choice Kirk made and go down yourself? In all honesty, although I'm sure it would seem very selfish, I personally would have just let Harriman go down there himself. Or heck, why not tell Scotty since he is an engineer?
