Jim Kirk, no power in the 'verse can stop me. Crossover or not. I just think that line fits Jim to a T. ;)

Power
“Look, you’re not understanding the words that are coming out of my mouth,” Jim says, says it leisurely like it’s Sunday afternoon and they’re all watching football and drinking beer, and their lives aren’t on the line. But he can feel his crew relaxing behind him, just infinitesimally, because he’s their Captain, and they know he’s going to get them through this. “We’re going to save those people, and then we’re gonna come for you. And you’re not gonna like it.

The Federation Operative is frowning, because he’s starting to realize this too. “And why exactly do you think you have a chance in hell of succeeding, Captain?” he asks. “You’re outnumbered, outgunned. You have a universe against you.” He stands up angrily. “Who the hell do you think you are?”

“I’m Captain James T. Kirk,” Jim answers, “and this is the crew of the Starship Enterprise.” He grins at the Operative. “And no power in the ‘verse can stop us.”

Of Head Wounds and Horses
Of course.

Of course their shuttle crashed, and of course they lost most of their survival gear in the following explosion, and of course they're on a pre-warp world with what looks like a dozen heavily-armed natives on horseback coming straight at them at a dead-gallop.

“It’s okay, Bones, just follow my lead,” Jim says in that obnoxiously cheerful way only he could ever have, as the natives surround them with the tips of a dozen very-ugly looking spears pointed at them. Normally, Leonard would feel a bit better about Jim taking charge, but the man has an ugly head wound and probably a concussion, and so his captainly skills leave a lot to be desired right now.

Like diplomacy.

“Hi, guys. How’s it goin’?” Jim asks the man who is the leader of the group, judging from the tall crest of his helmet.

Yeah. They’re gonna die alright. Leonard makes his peace with this.

The natives talk in angry consternation for a few minutes. They don’t understand a word of it—the universal translator was one of the many, many casualties of the crash.

The leader of the men dismounts from his horse, head cocked to look at them curiously. He orders something, and the men shift, their spears no longer pointed directly at them.
He takes off his helmet, asking something, but Leonard is only half-listening, because this man could be his twin.

“Holy shit, Bones!” Jim says. “He looks just like you!”

Well yeah, if he had long hair, a beard, and hadn’t bathed in weeks.

The man repeats something in his incomprehensible language. He frowns as he realizes that they have no idea what he’s saying, then places a hand on his chest. “Éomer,” he says firmly. He gestures at the men around him. “Rohirrim.”

“Leonard McCoy,” Leonard says, echoing the gesture. “Jim Kirk,” he adds for Jim’s benefit, as the Captain is increasingly unsteady.

Éomer nods as if understanding, and whistles. A horse with no rider obediently trots forward, and Leonard realizes that this man means for them to mount it and follow them.

“I like horses, Bones,” Jim says. “Do you like horses?”

“Yeah, Jim,” Leonard says as he pulls the other man up in front of him on the horse. “I like them just fine.”

Hopefully Spock would get them out of this soon.

The Morals of Defying Physics


“I appreciate the theoretical underpinnings of your work, Cadet Scott,” Professor Chao says, “but really, after the incident with the dog—“ He grimaces in distaste, and says no more.

Given the choice between an icy outpost on the rim for the rest of his career or catching as catch can, Scotty tries his luck. This is how he’s on one of the border planets when he sees her.

She’s gorgeous. Beautiful. The most wonderful sight to ever make a man’s heart hurt with the want of her.

The redheaded girl seated in a lawn chair outside the ship is cute too.

“A real, honest-to-god Firefly-class ship. I havena seen one of these in years,” Scotty says to her in awe. “She’s gorgeous.”

The red-head beams at him. “It’s nice to get some appreciation for once,” she says. “Most folks don’t appreciate my baby, here. My name’s Kaylee,” she adds. “Wanna come see the engines?”

They spend several pleasant hours talking shop when there’s a comm.. “Kaylee,” a man’s voice says, “We gotta get outta here. Lock ‘er up, we’re movin’ on.”

“Capt’n,” Kaylee says hurriedly, “I kinda got comp’ny down here…”

There’s a pause. “He don’t mind fireworks does he?” says the man. “’Cause we’re about to dodge some.”

“Nae to worry, sir,” Scotty says into the comm cheerfully, “I’ve a bit of a checkered past meself. Ye let me stick around a bit, I’ll be happy to help.”

“He’s a hell of an engineer, Captain,” Kaylee adds.

“Alright then. What’s your name?” asks the Captain.

“Montgomery Scott. Scotty, sir.”

“Alrighty then, Scott. Do what Kaylee tells you. We mean to misbehave.”

Scotty grins at Kaylee. “Sounds like a grand time, sir,” he says. “Scotty out.”

Bad Ideas
“This is a bad idea, Bones,” Jim says with a frown.

“Explain, kid,” Leonard says, refraining from rolling his eyes. “I said ‘let’s fuck’ not ‘let’s having a meaningful relationship.’ I figured this was exactly your favorite kinda conversation.”

Jim makes a face at him. “Yeah, well, you thought wrong. Okay, man? Christ.”

Leonard frowns. “What are you sayin’, Jim?” Nothing. “Come on, talk to me.”

“I’m not like that, Bones, okay?” Jim says. He runs a hand through his short hair in frustration. “Maybe I used to be, but I’m not now. Okay?”

Leonard processes this. “So you do want a real relationship, is what you’re saying?”

Jim rolls his eyes. “Fuck off, Bones,” he says. “I’m not in the mood.”

“Jim. Stop.” Jim pauses, then looks at him, blue eyes wide. Leonard talks as gently as he can. “I want you, kid. Okay? Whatever that means. You want roses and champagne, I’ll do that. You want beer and pretzels, hell—kittens, puppies, rainbows, what the fuck ever. You let me know, and I’ll do it, okay? I want you Jim. Get that through your head.”

Jim stares at him. “Seriously, Bones?”

Leonard gives him a small smile. “I love you, Jim. Take what you want of it.”

Jim nods, and gives him a kiss that tastes like promise.
