I've been on a bit of a Spock vs McCoy kick lately, in the sense that I want to see how their relationship works beyond the bluster. I think they actually had some of the most enlightening/insightful character moments on the series when they weren't plain sniping and point-scoring.
Sometimes it's nice to see them disuss their differing POVs calmly and without namecalling.
You have a nice handle on both characters here.

Nice bit of conversation. The two of them managed to speak without McCoy's usual "bluster". But following Spock's final comment, I can well imagine McCoy getting wrought up, all over again. Spock knows how to get under his skin, and I don't think McCoy will let him have the last word.

More Spock superiority, I see. He's right that he's asked McCoy for suggestions before, and McCoy is certainly too much of a complainer at times. I never liked how he often ended up on the Bridge during crises and then would fret and essentially get in the way. I like McCoy, and I don't begrudge the screen time, but Spock's right - the doctor just isn't that helpful in such circumstances.
