At the end of this awesome episode (One of TOS best IMHO) when there is not enough power to transport all four back to their universe Scotty volunteers to stay behind. When Kirk refuses Scotty's offer Scotty calls Kirk "Jim", is this the only episode or movie where Mr. Scott refers to Captain Kirk by his first name?

P.S. This episode helped me accept J.J. Abrams alternate universe in ST XI. Since I liked Mirror Mirror so much I would be a hypocrite to say the alternate universe in Mirror Mirror was good but not in the new movie.

I believe it is the first and only time that Scotty called his captain by his first name.

For me it always cemented the relationship between the two, that this man was not JUST another commanding officer for Scotty.

Just a great moment between the two.
