Re: Do you think Starfleet felt Kirk had failed any of the missions?

Terrel didn't know. Marcus didn't know. No ship was sent to check up on them. Sounds to me Kirk managed to keep this out of the official records.
Again you're making an assumption. Hostile people tried to forcibly hijack his ship. You don't think that was logged? Hell, we actually hear Kirk's log entries about the whole thing. No way he hid that baby. Starfleet could just as easily said, "Not your problem anymore, Kirk. We"ll deal with it." Maybe Starfleet is the one who hushes it up and keeps it out of the records.
Add to that the fact he had to explain what happened to the ships historian.
