Captain Kirk is said to be the only known person to have beaten the Kobayashi Maru in the original series, hereby referred to as KM in my question.
What irks me is, he apparently added a subroutine which magically tipped the scales in his favour. He says he "changed the conditions of the test". This is very ambiguous, as there should not technically be any loophole or simple turnaround by which someone can beat the KM, an unwinnable scenario. What modifications had he actually made? Is there any canon info? Or just speculation?
Which brings me to my second question. Is there any other person who has ever beaten the KM, and more importantly, is there ABSOLUTELY NO decision which leads to the user beating the simulation?
