description Description EN

There is nothing remotely cache like at the given co-ordinates. Simply emulate Kirk's feat to find the real location, which may well have been on a bridge at one time, just not the bridge of a starship. Today it more closely resembles the swamps of Dagobah from a different fictional universe entirely.

Bogs there are, streams unbridged, woodwork broken, vines that trip ... use the force you must ...

 

As any nerd knows, Kobayashi Maru is a deliberately unwinnable training scenario faced by Starfleet Academy cadets in Star Trek.

Supposedly a test of character and command decisions in extremis, the simulation poses a dilemma: should the student rescue or abandon the eponymous civilan spaceship, stranded powerless near the edge of Klingon space ? If rescue is attempted the Starfleet ship itself is destroyed with all hands by the Klingons. If the cadet attempts to negotiate, or leaves the Kobayashi Maru to its fate, they see it destroyed, hearing the final pleas of the passengers abruptly cut off .

Famously (and inevitably) the devil may care cadet James T. Kirk was the only student to ever beat the simulation, a feat he accompished by redefining the problem* as shown in the 2009 film reboot of the franchise.

This defeat of the Kobyashi Maru test did not go down well with the creator of the exercise, a pointy eared instructor by the name of Spock.
