A different person, meaning a complete imbecile?
PIKE: Because I looked up your file while you were drooling on the floor. Your aptitude tests are off the charts, so what is it? You like being the only genius-level repeat offender in the midwest?
Just to provide some facts.
One can discuss whether Kirk wouldn't be a more complex character if he had some of those traits prominent in the first season of TOS and the Meyer films.
One can discuss whether the Tattoomulans should have been less one-dimensional.
One can discuss whether the movie sacrificed thematic depth at the cost of action and pacing.
But going off the deep end, calling Kirk an imposter or an imbecile, is not an actual discussion, it s a stupid rant without substance. Nothing against polemics but not on such a low level.
If imposter kirk presented substance of any kind, I would be the first to discuss it.
