Kirk: This is Jim. Matt, you'll be checkmated.
Decker: I've been prepared for checkmate ever since I . . . ever since I blundered my pawns.
Spock: You cannot succeed, Commodore. Your only logical alternative is to return to g1.
Decker: A player is responsible for the lives of his pawns . . . and for their deaths. Well, I should have died with mine.
Kirk: Matt, you're a grandmaster, that makes you a valuable commodity. We need you, your endame expertise, your knowledge of the Sicilian. Matt! We're stronger with you than without you!
|Apr-07-06|| ||Open Defence: <Decker: A player is responsible for the lives of his pawns . . . and for their deaths. Well, I should have died with mine.>
<Spock> That Commodore is illogical|

|Apr-11-06|| ||Benzol: He recently reprised his Decker role in the New Voyages. Babara Luna (from the episode "Mirror Mirror") played his wife. Is she Will Decker's mother?|
|Apr-11-06|| ||keypusher: So who was Commander Matt Decker?|
|Apr-11-06|| ||chancho: <Keypusher> Commodore Decker, was a man obsessed with destroying the Planet destroyer."cone thingy" (he lost all of his crew as a result) He wanted to do the same for the Enterprise,(by taking command) but Kirk and Spock eventually stopped him. Decker then stole a shuttle craft, and drove it into the planet destroyer. (killing himself in the process) Kirk saw that it damaged the thing somewhat, and decided to drive Deckers damaged starship into it. (Kirk had the sense to get himself beamed out of that ship) The resultant explosion, destroyed the planet thingy, and they went back to playing galactic chess.(Kirk beat Spock as usual)|
|Apr-11-06|| ||keypusher: If he was a commodore, didn't he outrank Kirk? Couldn't he just order Kirk to obey him?|
|Apr-11-06|| ||chancho: <Keypusher> He did use his rank to take over the Enterprise. Kirk later had him removed from command, because Decker's obsession to destroy the Doomsday machine showed him to be unfit to command.|
|May-21-07|| ||chancho: Some info on this american actor:
<Has been profiled in Chess Life magazine twice (he is a tournament player with a penchant for unusual openings; one of his positions had turned up in a Chess Life problem column before the magazine interviewed him). The second time, in 1988, he appeared with his friend Claude Akins (who had been on Murder She Wrote as Captain Ethan Craig the season before Windom became Dr. Seth Hazlitt) playing a game in Windom's back yard. During an interview for the article, Windom said that he planned to build a foot-tall metal Rook (the castle-shaped piece) in the back yard, "and one day my ashes will be buried underneath it.".>
|May-21-07|| ||WannaBe: USCF Life member, but no tournament activity since 1991... Fascinating.|
|Aug-05-07|| ||Benzol: Just read in that Leonard Nimoy will don the pointy ears and play Mr Spock again in the up-coming Star Trek XI movie due out in 2008.|
|Sep-28-08|| ||Benzol: "They say there's no Devil Jim, but right out of Hell, I saw it".|
|Sep-28-08|| ||Duck McCluck: I still have no idea what's going on--is this a joke right?|
|Sep-28-08|| ||Everyone: ???
|Sep-28-08|| ||talisman: HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILLIAM! (i'm trying to remember the walter mitty type show you starred in on t.v.).|
|Sep-28-08|| ||me to play: "My world and welcome to it"|
|Sep-30-08|| ||talisman: <thanks> !|
|Sep-30-08|| ||offramp: The name Windom has another televisual chess connection: ex-FBI agent Windom Earle played a game of chess 'with human pieces' in the series Twin Peaks.|
|Oct-09-08|| ||norami: A small, uncredited but memorable cameo for William Windom was the role of Steve Martin's boss in "Planes, Trains and Automobiles".|
|Oct-09-08|| ||ILikeFruits: nerds...|
|Oct-09-08|| ||whiteshark: ...because you have windom beyond your years! :D|
|Feb-17-10|| ||Benzol: Does he use a Constellation (Computer) to help him in analysis?|
|Aug-19-12|| ||PhilFeeley: "Best known" for Star Trek?? What an insult! Why not Murder She Wrote or even My World and Welcome To It? There's a huge list here:|
