    We've never seen the Prime Universe first meeting between Kirk and Spock. I bet Kurtzman would love the chance to do that meeting in serialized TV format on Disco.

    KIRK: Nice to meet you Commander .
    SPOCK: It is agreeable to meet you, as well.

    You need McCoy as well. It won't work without him.

    The canon says he wasn't there. And we got to follow the canon. Piper will have to do.

    He's busy helping out Lucas McCain in The Old West. Except he goes by the name Micah Torrance.

    What we know of McCoy at this time is from the novels which are invalid. All we know is that he was married at some point and had a daughter.

    The novels are heretical. You will not speak of them here. Take that talk to the Treklit forum with the other heretics.

    They shouldn’t hire him on account of being absolute creep. He’s currently being dropped from conventions for a history of homophobia and sexual harassment allegations (including some underaged victims).

    But in 52+ years of TV and [prime universe] movies, nobody ever said Kirk was the Captain of the Discovery -- or any ship -- prior to the Enterprise!! :devil:

    No.

    I don't need to see Michael Burnham save Kirks life and mould him into the captain he becomes, thankyou.

    They didn’t contradict it either. Same with Pike, so there was no problem using him. Did they ever say Enterprise was the first ship Kirk captained?

    Here are future captains of Discovery:
    3rd season: Pike
    4th season: Kirk
    5th season: prime Lorca
    6th season: Saru
    7th season: Burnham

    I would like to see Kirk in the background would be cool like Discovery goes on the Axanar Peace Mission and Tilly just chat with a old friend from the Academy(it fits for them to know each other) and that all. We get to clear know that it James Kirk but he not a major guest or anything
