Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]
The Hollywood obsession with youth...
Not every hero needs to be in his 30ies...
But TOS Kirk was Captian in his early 30's. NuTrek he is in his 20's. That is more implaus.... Oh never mind.
But Prime Kirk likely had other commands before getting the Enterprise
. Dehner mentions a 'first command' in "Where No Man..."
Plus, Picard got the Stargazer
"When I first heard about it (the Enterprise underwater), my inner Trekkie was in a rage. When I saw it, my inner kid beat up my inner Trekkie and made him go sit in the corner." - Bill Jasper
