I've no doubt a fighter pilot is highly trained, intelligent and skilled individual, but I doubt that would render them a valuable asset to Starfleet. Christopher would be shipped to the nearest Starbase and from there to Earth, where he would be acclimated to the 23rd Century and retrained.[/QUOTE]
I dunno. Starfleet would probably call Kirk on the carpet and make him responsible for Christopher, essentially telling him, you brought him here. Take him along and get him home...soon.
