Scotty was such a fucking badass when Kirk put him in charge.
In A Taste of Armageddon, a mealy-mouthed diplomat orders Scotty to lower the ship’s shields so he can beam down, and Scotty refuses because he thinks the planet will blow them up as soon as they do. The diplomat has the authority to order it, and Scotty says “No sir, I will not.”
Now here’s a fun fact: While serving in the Canadian artillery during WW2, young Lieutenant James Doohan was ordered to conduct a training exercise. He realised if he did as he was told, he’d blow the heads of some of his own men. So he refused. The commander insisted. Lt. Doohan responded with “No sir, I will not.” He escaped court martial because the superiors realised the commander was an idiot and Doohan eventually got promoted.
Nichelle Nichols frequently tells a story of getting into a dispute with director Marc Daniels over the filming of this episode. As it had already been established that Uhura’s first language was Swahili, Nichols believed that, after her mind was erased, Uhura would revert to her first language. However, as Nichols herself did not speak Swahili, Daniels wanted Uhura to just speak English. Nichols refused to, telling Daniels, “Nichelle Nichols doesn’t speak Swahili, but Uhura does!” Gene Roddenberry was eventually brought in to settle the dispute, and he sided with Nichols. A linguist specializing in Swahili was then brought in to write the few lines of Swahili that are spoken in the episode. (Memory Alpha)
