Re: TOS movie era Novels?

Was just wondering what your opinions might be about Kirk's rank in the Five Year Mission after TMP. I've noticed some novels and comics have him as a Captain and some have him as an Admiral. Which do you think it should be?

Some examples are Marvel's ongoing and Untold Voyages have him as a Captain, while DC vol.1 #19 and IDW's Star Trek: Infestation have him as an Admiral.

Also, it's not always consistent amongst an individual writer's works. For example, Howard Weinstein's Covenant of the Crown and Better Man have the Captain's rank but Deep Domain which was written between has the Admiral's rank.

Thanks and have fun,
