Re: "You should have heard him defend you.." - really??

I do buy it, because although Kirk and crew did a great job stopping Nero, he was largely insubbordinate, flippant, and frankly he did not seem to respect the chair as Pike put it.

He should never have been down there endangering spock's life in the first place, and though morally it was the right thing, he did alter the natural development of the Nibiru native population, and broke Starfleet's #1 directive of not interference.

Kirk's journey in the film was about him attaining the wisdom he needed to be in command.

It also addressed his meteoric rise from Stowaway cadet on academic suspention to captain of the Federation flag ship.
