Re: Did Kirk captain any ship before Enterprise?

No, Janeway was also confirmed to have at least one prior command. In "Revulsion," at Tuvok's promotion ceremony, she said, "The first time I met Tuvok he dressed me down in front of three Starfleet admirals for failing to observe proper tactical procedures during my first command."
However, this does not need to refer to the command of a starship. Janeway could have been commanding a research team for all we know - an assignment comparable to what Acting Ensign Wesley Crusher did in "Pen Pals".
But Wesley would never refer to that as his first command, would he? Command, in that sense, has always meant their first ship.

He's not going to say, "I remember my first command, back when I was 14..."
