Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: People misremember events all the time, especially if the events are unexpected and chaotic. At best a character mistake.

It's also important to remember this was a "show" trial, where many things were manipulated to make Kirk and McCoy look guilty. Everything the Klingon witnesses say is suspect.

Jason Hoffman

I called it a character mistake.
