Pike could be the Starfleet C-in-C by ST XII.
Which means he unfortuneately will be off the screen the majority of the time.

I liked Chris Pine as Kirk too. I don't think anyone could have done a better job, FWIW.
I could probably reel off quite a few names of actors who could have done a better job portraying James Kirk than Pine. People more professionally trained, experienced, and talented. One of the consideration on hiring Pine was that he was a young actor on his way up, and they could get him for the money they did. Someone like Matt Damon or James Marsden might have been a financial impossibility, but would have been much better in the role given their superior acting abilities.

You don't think anyone could have done a better job?

It's easy to support someones beliefs if they are identical to your own.
Tolerating beliefs that you don't personal embrace, or even fully understand, is harder.
