I voted no. I think we've seen enough of Kirk's life before his ascension into the "Captain's Chair".

He was born, he crashes fast cars, he likes women. ?What else is there?

That's only in the new timeline.

In the prime timeline, he likely spent time with his father...there was the ordeal on Tarsus IV...his friendship with Gary Mitchell...

:logical:

New Kirk makes a better action hero.

New Kirk more action/wild/adventure

Prime Kirk actually more nerdy compared to new kirk.  :O

For me and I bet every other fan here, if the story is written well, most of us would like to see more of Kirk before he really sat in the seat so to speak. IMHO, his rise to Capt in XI was way too quick. I say show us a Kirk that is human, that stumbles and makes mistakes before he became the Captain of the Enterprise that the Klingons, Romulans, and every other bad guy in the quadrant was scared of! :)

The other day someone (I can't remember who) said that Trek fans would't be able to accept a movie where Kirk wasn't the captain of the Enterprise, and that was why the makers of the new film rushed him into the big chair.

I don't think that's true, I'd have no problem with a good series of movies with Commander Kirk. I'd even leave out some of the traditional characters, who probably wouldn't have been about when he was first officer.

What about you?

hey ZeroArmour, tell your freind that it was already done, in Generations. Kirk was not even the commander of a freighter, much less a Starship, at all in the entire movie.

on top of that there are three more TNG based movies where Kirk was not the captain either. So again tell your freind, that it has been done.

(I know that this comment is not 100% on topic, but it is the truth of the mater.)

The subject of the discussion related only to the new movie & TOS, so the TNG movies don't count.

Also it relates to the recasting of the classic roles, I know lots of people who'd show up to watch Shattner & Nimoy read a news paper!

as Spock would say, that is not Logical.the kirk in the movie is nothing like the Kirk in TOS, so the two are not comparable to each other, plus Generations was both a TOS and TNG movieso it does count.

NuKirk is just a punk kid compared to His Awesomeness Kirk Prime.

I know but he sure is more fun to watch in action. Kirk Prime is awesome and all but new Kirk's risk taking is a whole new level. :)
