    McCoy is also supposed to be 7-10 years older than Kirk, so I would think that his previous medical practise and work experience would earn him some credit.

    I remember reading (thought it was here, too) that Damon got a meeting with Abrams early on and was told he was too old for the Kirk they were doing.

    Quoting from an article which was linked here back in 2007:


    Much later on, there was another article saying that Damon had been approached for the role of George Kirk.

    Right here buddy.
    Didn't Bones, Kirk, and Uhura enter Starfleet Academy at the same time? They all got to where the wanted in three years.

    Uhura was already a cadet, hence the uniform in the bar scene. Probably a first year or second year cadet.

    Pike tells Kirk:
    What I took from that was they were all new recuits (if Hendorff was on that ship, he too would have graduated in three years) and your simply assigned a uniform before shipping out.

    I took that to mean the new recruits from that area (McCoy, Kirk and whoever) needed to be on the shuttle. Uhura, Hendorff and the rest are just cadets visiting the shipyard. They seemed pretty chummy and insular (Cupcake calls Kirk a townie) for a group of people who just met. They're also very "snap to it" when Pike shows up, which to me indicates some training and discipline.,

    according to the star trek app that was released and the bios on those apps, Bones, Carol, Uhura, Kirk, Chekov and Sulu all graduated in 2258. Spock and Scotty were all commissioned officers.

    I know in the Royal Navy Officer Cadets start of with the ranks of either midshipman (USN ensign) or sub lieutenant (USN lieutenant junior grade) and sometimes lieutenant, however I think that is only for surgeons.

    That's what I figured. They were all cadets on shore leave, or something.
