Aside from all
Based on what we know now, it's virtually certain that the rule Kirk breaks which gets him into trouble is broken in order to save Spock's life. That doesn't make him a "bad boy" and it doesn't owe a thing directly to Kirk's current image in popular culture - it descends directly from similar behavior in TOS.
I had steak and a loaded baked potato for dinner on Sunday.
As a steak I enjoyed it a lot, but as macaroni and cheese I thought it was disappointing.
