Re: Did Kirk captain any ship before Enterprise?
I'm surprised anyone would think that Enterprise was probably Kirk's first command, or that anyone would prefer to think that.
It's not that big of a stretch, given all the other more outlandish things that happens in Trek. A young command division officer distinguishes himself as a leader multiple times on various missions as he moves quickly up the chain of command. Upon reaching command rank, Starfleet gives him the Enterprise
. For all we know, a senior admiral of his acquaintance may have recommended him or even wrote the orders for him to take command.
