describes the act of opening one's flip mobile phone by snapping it open with a flick of the wrist, Star Trek-communicator-style. Eventually leads to phone breakage, sometimes with the top half of the phone flying across the room as it snaps from the base.
"Dude! I Captain Kirked my phone last night and it broke in half!"
"Heather, if you don't stop Captain Kirking your phone so much, you are going to have to stop buying flip phones!"
