While Jim's sense of self-preservation was markedly non-existent most of the time, there were moments that it leaped to the fore, and this was one of them. Over the years Jim had developed a theory that his sense of self-preservation only emerged when (as) he was tipping over that fine line between win and maybe-this-really-wasn't-such-a-good-idea-after-all.

I don't think I've ever read such an apt description of Jim Kirk. Excellent job!
