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?!?!

There is no drama in showing normal people in normal situations. When was the last time you saw a movie about people with no problems having a normal day?
