My one big concern however was the fact that they literally went from being cadets to officers especially with Kirk being a cadet to become captain instantly...its a little hard to believe and I dont know if anyone knows why they would do that. Besides that I would easily give it a 9/10 maybe a 10
They just lost a good few ships and staff in that Vulcan , I didn't really have much of an issue with it - though I thought I would months ago.
Pike had faith in Kirk and gave him a nudge, the others possibly began to earn rankings through their work in Starfleet and because this ship was a big deal, they'd put their best on it.
The story carried me away with it... the rationalising came later
Traitor to the cause.
