Re: Daddy Kirk (spoilers probably)
Where is Kirk's brother through all of this? Is he even in the movie?
My guess is some actor will play him in a brief appearance when Kirk is growing up or leaving for the Academy...that, or he'll be mentioned if nothing else. Too many fans both hardcore and passing remember Kirk had an older brother.
Remember what cooleddie74 says, kids:
"Don't forget to have a Patrick Swayze Christmas!"
