Re: Cupcake = Finnegan?

He didn't act, look or sound like Finnegan in any way whatsoever.

Finnegan was a lanky, loud-mouthed, abnoxious, douche. "Cupcake" was just a thugish redshirt.

Now, I might buy that the hitchiker Kirk passes on the Iowa road was spposed to be Finnegan. (His lankyness and overall look was Finnegan-esqe.)

Being a redshirt, Cupcake won't last long on the Enterprise

He'll be winked out of exsistance for laghing at Charlie for getting his ass handed to him while wrestling Kirk, who's sucking in his gut.

Totally. Plus, he could easily work as a Finnegan analogue (as was mentioned by Jeri). In this new timeline, he is the type of thorn in Kirk's side that Finnegan would have been in another, albeit their methods differ greatly.

Still, I think it would be very, very interesting if they were to develop Cupcake and Kirk's relationship in the next one to one of mutual respect. I have no problem with them adding an entirely new character to the original Star Trek crew. Kind of like what O'Brien was for the TNG crew. Who is chief of security for Kirk's ship (besides Kirk himself, I mean)? I think Cupcake should be the acting Security/Red Shirt Chief who lives through every movie....until the last one! Ha!

Come on: Security Chief Cupcake, Red Shirt Prime! Who's with me?

Sounds great to me. It would also show that they all have grown as people, if Kirk embraced Cupcake and then counted on him during missions, etc.

Cupcake has to clean up after Chekov's hair product.

What of Cupcake?

I just thought of "Cupcake".

I wonder how he's doing now that Kirk's the Captain of the Enterprise...

Figure someone's gonna be wanting a transfer REAL quick?

EDIT:
Someone suggested this the other day... I wonder if we see him again his last name will be revealed to be "Finnegan"? Heh heh heh...

Nah, Cupcake is off enjoying himself in the ships gallery. There are rumors he's covered in frosting.

He may be crusty on the outside, but he's a big softie on the inside, where it counts.

Re: What of Cupcake?

It will be revealed in the sequel.... The Vengeance of Cupcake.

Cupcake: I shall leave you as you left me, marooned for all eternity at the center of a frosty, tasty treat... baked alive. Baked alive.
Kirk: CUPCAKEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

I thought about this too. He definitely just got demoted to toilets, that's for sure. They should have put him in the crowd of cadets and have him scowling at Kirk as he gets promoted.

So that's how that tradition started.
