Kobayashi Maru

Post by sasahara17 on Tue 9 Jun 2009 - 8:54

Once again, trying something new to kick start the Plot Bunny section. This thread is named after the infamous Star Fleet Academy Test which no one except Jim Kirk has been able to win at.

Not so much as an idea as it is a discussion, here we discuss possible no-win scenarios designed for the cyborg operatives as part of their training. Use some weird justification for the test like 'evaluating ability of operative to function under pressure' or something like that.

Hell we can even talk about how some characters would attempt the test, not knowing it isunwinnable.

I, for the life of me, cannot think of an truly fascinating challenge of this kind, and am simply going with the 'kidnapped handler' heading in direction X and 'bomb about to go off under Prime minister's feet' at location Y. It's a mock scenario of course.

The Girls need to take on terrorists armed with HE rounds, anti-tank rounds, grenade launchers, RPGs while the terrorists and they are strapped to sensitive explosives...

BLIND FOLDED!!

the only way they could win is if they do the Kirk thing and overlap the simulation with an easier one

Whoa, talk about overkill! I was thinking impossible, but not impossible to the point where they couldn't learn anything from it! At that point, you really have to be Jim Kirk level cheating to get past all that.

Let's tone it down a bit...

GSG is tasked with protecting a government building against a 'small force' (5 teams of Italy's finest) of armed terrorists armed with deadly paint ball guns (representing high powered rifles) with two 'stolen' tanks. If the girl appears to be winning, a helicopter gunship shows up. If they're still stubbornly holding on, 'renegade cyborgs' (from SWA sister agencies) appear. If they refuse to give in even then... handler in a hostage situation.

Give the poor GSG the illusion the situation is winnable, and if they succeed they get delicious cake or in Triela's case, a lifetime supply of Hartmann farm products.

The cake is a lie of course as are the Sausages.

then throw in a cyborg Pino if they seem to be getting the upper hand.

winner get's the lie... i mean the cake!

The Kobarashi Maru simulations (we can argue of its spelling another day... Razz ) is a No Win Situation in which Kirk cheated, and Spock never took (see Wrath of Kahn for reference).

For a No-Win situation, the girls have to be faced with a dual situation in which they have a choice in saving 1 life over another for a partial win, or save neither for a no-win, or attempt to save both lives and fail- though also a no or partial win, one would get high marks for just even trying.

The Current Chapters 60+ shows a No-Win Situation, but damn hell they sure are trying their best to win, even partially.
