Re: Kirk's early years.
And another thing. Kirk is 20 years old when the Enterprise encounters the Talosians in The Cage and Menagarie I & II (Deadly Years-age 34 & Menagarie-13yrs before TOS). Is he less than 20 during this movie?
Only in the Corvette scene, where he looks to be about twelve or thirteen. The bulk of the story in this movie appears to take place when Kirk is in his mid-to-late twenties.
I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. — Kurt Vonnegut
