But isn't Sam older than James? So wouldn't he be around on the Kelvin when it goes down?

Yes, he is, and no, apparently not.

The big question is, does Lil' Sam also have a cheesy mustache to distinguish between him and Lil' Jim? IT'S CANON OMG.

Likely not.
If Kirk's mom had lived, I would think that she would have been the one who raised him, not loser abusive drunk Uncle Frank.

In the original timeline we have all come to know, what was the fate of Kirk's dad?
Nothing canon. But even in the novels he was supposed to be deceased by the time of TOS and the related movies.
My favorite George Kirk was Diane Carey's.

Re: Daddy Kirk (spoilers probably)

Sam was supposed to be older, even if the only visual evidence was the cheesy porno moustache in "Operation--Annihilate." In TV you normally denote age and/or seniority by how much clothing...facial hair...that sort of thing. So my guess is that Sam is probably at least a few years older than James and would probably already be off at university or some other school by the time his brother entered Starfleet.

She could survive the Kelvin's destruction only to be eventually killed by Kodos the Executioner, thus Druncle Frank steps in and raises Jimmy.

Which would mean Kirk's upbringing wasn't that different this time around...so there'd have to be some other reason he's a loser.

Re: Daddy Kirk (spoilers probably)

Yeah, but if she were killed at the command of Kodos, wouldn't Kirk have made a bigger deal of it in "Conscience of the King"? Instead of "all those people" it would have been "...and for the love of God, Bones...my OWN MOTHER!"

I mean, you really can't separate it when it hits that close to home.
