Any resemblences story-wise are superficial. Kirk being raised on a farm? That goes back to The Original Series...
When? I don't remember any mention of Kirk being raised on a farm in TOS. But, I'm getting old and may not remember something.
Hmmmm.... I checked Memory Alpha, there's no mention of him being raised on a farm in TOS. I checked The Making of Star Trek, it just says Kirk is from "a small town in Iowa"

But "farmboy" Kirk definitely predates STXI. Maybe it's from one of the James Blish novelizations or original Bantam novels in the 70's?
Star Trek Imponderables, fun mashups of Trek's biggest continuity errors! Ep1, Ep2 and Ep3
