The Kobayashi Maru

In the spirit of Defuerimus, Mutaverimus:

Your favorite character(s) take the Kobayashi Maru test. They can be in the command seat, or watching someone else struggle. How do they handle it? Do they go down fighting? Refuse to fight? Lie, cajole, steal? (How do you steal a computer simulation? I don't know, but Kirk managed it.) Try to fake out physics?

(Open, Moderated)
