The thing that kills me about this entire movie is that NCC-1701, if you go by TOS, was online, at least 17 years before Kirk became Captain. Remember the episode in which Spock kidnaps Pike, and jacks the Enterprise? The events of the Enterprise at Talos IV took place about 17 BEFORE. At that time, Spock was an junior bridge officer already.
Why didn't they just do a reboot!?!?!?!?
