Isn't that the Kirk who's ship got the living shit beat out of and got several crewman killed in the same movie, when he kept his shields down when another ship approached? The same Kirk, who's unfamiliarity with his ship's new specs in the previous film almost proved fatal? Kirk's always been somewhat egotistical and reckless. Often those are the traits that allow him to succeed. Occasionally they bite him in the ass.
Plus, the Kirk in the new movies is six or seven years younger than the one we first get to know in Where No Man...
I'm sure someone can point me to the episodes of TOS that take place in 2258 that have Kirk involved?
