Corbomite manoeuvre ...

Most of you know that I am a Star Trek fan; I tend to avoid the full fandom, just enjoying the programmes and occasionally playing with the toys.

With so many programmes, spanning over 45 years of television. You will get some interesting plot ideas applicable in everyday 21st Century situations.

The corbomite manoeuvre is the classic notion of bluff and the potential of retaliation. The aggressor, does not know the entire strengths of their new found adversary. The defender, uses guile as well as force to offset the notably strong assailant.

In this class episode, Kirk persuades a more powerful aggressor, that the hull of the enterprise is built with this mythical substance. When fired upon, it will return the force applied in equal measure to the assailant.

Now the question is, do you think I am using this tactic ;-)
