As far as Kirk's advancement in Starfleet in the JJverse, I pose this: Kirk is a genius. Kirk is a natural leader. He's the 'Good Will Hunting' of Star Trek. End of story.
Cadet Wesley Crusher promoted to Captain is believable to?????????
The fact that Starfleet mobilized the cadets and crewed the ships in orbit with largely (or at least implied to be) cadet crew leads me to think that whatever has the rest of the fleet tied up is leaving them shorthanded. Kirk's promotion to Captain (likely shoved through by Pike) could be part PR movie (reward the man that saved the planet), and part "We'll he can keep the chair warm till we find someone better." The last three years could have been the Enterprise more or less shaking-out and on softball sort of missions to see if Kirk was up to the job.
