Finnegan could have been that bully that Kirk never gets to pin it back to, instead of a guy who gets killed by a flower in "The Apple".
Finnegan was certainly the hot favourite for Cupcake after 2009, but I guess the thick Irish accent was a big part of the character in TOS, so Orci & Kurtzman picking Hendorff, a guy who really only gets to die in TOS, was fine by me. It was really cool when IDW first revealed the name in the comic and I realised he had been a canonical TOS redshirt!
