Maybe this film will establish something I understand Paramount nixed in the first film: that Pine's Enterprise is in no way, shape or form Shatner's Enterprise. I seem to recall that the Kelvin was originally supposed to be the Constitution Class E were familiar with. So maybe that's the ship April commanded.
Yeah, they were going to blow up April/Pike/oldKirk's ship at the beginning, and the studio folks said "we're not blowing up any Enterprise in this movie."
I've never heard that one before, but I think it would have been a great idea.

The Kelvin was also the U.S.S. Iowa for quite a while. That was to justify "Iowa" as Kirk's birthplace.

I thought that was cute.

Cute. But incredibly contrived to the point of being cringe inducing.

What if a kid was born on the starship Bonhomme Richard? Would he (we) say he was from Bonhomme Richard? Or maybe he'd say he's from, the Bonhomme Richard? Does that make Kirk from Kelvin? Or from the Kelvin? Of course this dance has already been done to death on these boards. An oldie but a goodie.

Wellers character is Admrial Marcus carol Marcus farther so I don't think he's playing Robert April !!!

Has this ever been officially confirmed? And why haven't we seen anything of him in the trailers? We haven't even seen a picture of him!

Kirk is a man born in the heat of battle as his ship went down in flames and glory.

I'm in Arizona, though I was born in Illinois, and say I'm from Missouri.

Johnson said: "a character we have not yet seen in the new timeline shows up in Issue #1 and plays a critical role in the story"

I believe we will see, probably, Robert April in the film, since you don't need to read the comic to know the story.Then someone plays April. My guess is Peter Weller.

Nope, but people keep repeating it anyways.

It was originally said that Weller's character was new, not canon. I don't think April necessarily constitutes new, but nor is it exactly canon either.

So this is one more guess about April.

April as drawn in the comic looks like character actor Nolan North.

Hope it is okay I brought this over from the other thread for a side by side comparison?
