Re: Resigning from Starfleet

I always took Mitchell's reference to Kirk at the Academy to mean that Kirk was his instructor...why would cadets say "Watch out for Lt. Kirk...in his class you either think or sink." if he was a fellow student...?

It's possible that Saavik was already an academy graduate who had returned to attend command school, hence her rank. Kirk may have also been attending command school while doing some student teaching.
