The dreaded Kobayashi Maru test, the ultimate no-win scenario. It’s not about winning, it’s about how well you handle the situation knowing you’ll fail. One man passed the test (though he cheated), and got command of a starship. After that, anybody who managed to win the no-win scenario got a booby prize. Sometimes, even life in the Federation isn’t fair. Just be glad you didn’t get a year supply of Rice-a-Roni.

Inspired by my extensive collection of both traditional and creative Kokeshi, blended with my love of nerd culture, I offer this design inspired by Scotty, Spock, Captain Kirk, McCoy and Uhura from the Star Trek Original Series TV show in the style of Japanese Kokeshi dolls by myself, Danica Bergagnini.

Captain James T. Kirk spent a huge portion of his life aboard starships, and consequently relished the times he could spend outdoors. He was an accomplished equestrian, and kept a horse at a mountain cabin that he owned during his first retirement. Another companion at his mountain cabin was Butler, his Great Dane. He sold the cabin sometime after his return to Starfleet. A personal challenge that nearly cost him his life was free-solo climbing the face of El Capitan mountain in Yosemite National Park on Earth.
