I'm thinking Enterprise has to come the rescue here soon - perhaps the other ship on the sensory limits? But that was a neato piece there. Kirk/Pilot sacrificed in order to keep the ship going for as long as possible. Giving others a fighting chance seems something he would do so no wonder he feels some peace in the moment.
And of course, the little flashback snippets of AOS Kirk were short but sifficient to portray something of his measure in this timeline. And yet, despite finding a measure of peace in the moment, Kirk won't resign to his identity as The Pilot. A wee moment of bravo.
