Bleah, as a motive for little Jim Kirk to go to the Academy, that's pretty cliched. Why can't he just, you know, decide he wants to go? Why does everyone have to have a tragic frakkin' childhood?!?! Nobody in real life ever accomplished anything if they had a normal childhood?
I would venture that few people ever actually have "normal" childhoods. Or to put it another way, I think tragic childhood is pretty much normal.
