Re: Would Spock Prime think Kirk and a young Kirk Prime look identical

Pip ranks in STID? Rank in this era (Prime as well as the J.J. timeline) is denoted by gold braids on the uniform sleeves, unless there were also pips on some of the uniforms that I'm overlooking and forgetting about. Do you mean the star or emblem-like insignia on the dress uniform shoulder epaulets?

The Abramsverse rank braids of the late 2250s going into 2260 largely mimic those seen in TOS, TAS and ST:TMP except that there are no broken, dash-like braids to denote ranks such as Captain, Lt. Commander and Lt. Junior Grade. Captain in the new timeline is one wider braid followed by one that's more narrow and then another wider one.
