Sure, fantasy, I know. But as life when on, I found that in almost every situation where I found myself in a dead end of some sort, I kept my cool and actually did finish with a good outcome.
This philosophy has served me well in dire situations in my business as well as my personal life.
Never give up, and always keep your eyes (and most importantly, your mind) open for even the most remote chance of resolving a situation in your own favor.

Hopeless, never. Sometimes a sacrifice might have to be made so others can live.
But hopeless - that is the time to get down and dirty, cross eyed, fed up, ain't gonna take it, kick butt and take names later time. Deep primal anger, determination, stubourness, and a committment to overcome might just get you thru. Never give up, there is always hope.

Better: shoot the BG's, then use your spent shell casings to start plugging holes. Leaves both hands free to shoot.

BG's best case scenario is for everyone to comply w/ their orders and not cause a problem. 1 wrench thrown in might throw them off enough to lose the upper hand. Flight 93 is a perfect example of this.

I don't believe there's and such thing as a "hopeless situation". I will continue to do whatever I can till my last breath.
Everyone is going to die one way or another and death itself is nothing to fear.

Ah yes, the Kobayashi Maru- the no-win scenario. As I recall from my sci-fi geekdom, there is a very important lesson that comes up there: do whatever it takes to win. In the case of Captain Kirk, he cheated by reprogramming the computer to give himself more time.
