It'll be interesting to see how Pine can "do young Kirk" as Smith puts it without having any of Shatner's mannerisms or delivery. That ought to be eye-opening.
I'm guessing that he'll be more of your 'textbook stalwart young hero' than a young Kirk-as-played-by-William-Shatner, and that there will be just enough to his performance that will let our minds connect the dots to Shatner's Kirk.
Nobody could pull off Shatner's Kirk. And no one should ever try.
