Kobayashi Maru

Little Wooden Ship

Approx. Time: 9 minutes, 12 seconds

“A no-win situation caused by a set of rules that can only be won by changing the rules, in effect, cheating. This term comes from the name of a small ship in distress in a scenario shown in a Star Trek movie. According to the film, the scenario is featured in a training simulator for students attempting to become ship's captains. They receive a distress signal from the Kobayashi Maru and can either attempt to rescue it and be destroyed by enemy forces or leave it and let it be destroyed. James T. Kirk, according to the film, is the only person to have won the scenario--by reprogramming the simulator. Kobayashi Maru, loosely translated, means "Little wooden ship." [ Found online: ]

We've dedicated this work of art to commemorate the opening of the "Healing Canvas" location name for the new main facility of Truman Medical Centers Behavioral Health in October 2011. Secondly, to commemorate the career of Marsha Morgan, Chief Operating Officer, now retired in 2016. Her tireless work over the course of many years successfully insured the mentally challenged people in this state licensed facility catchment area continue to receive the best care available with current federal and state funding.
