Your dates are off. When Spock Prime told NU Kirk in the cave that he came from a 129 years into the future (2387) which would make the present date at 2256. Kirk was described as 25 years old at the present date. So he entered the Academy in 2253 at 22 years old. The Kelvin would have been destroyed in 2231. --Farragut79 05:19, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Um... 2258 plus 129 does in fact equal 2387. Feel free to try this on your own calculator at home!
They stated that those main events were 2258 on numerous occasions, in stardate form. This would make Kirk's academy entrance as a 2255 event, when he was 22 yrs old (older than your average cadet!) since it said "three years" passed in the on-screen text.. and Robau's stardate agrees with the accepted ST Chronology placing Kirk's birth in 2233. -- Captain MKB 06:49, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

I was off by a year and was high on painkillers. Either way, that is still off of 2262 mark that is stated in the article. --Farragut79 14:24, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

That much is true -- I haven't time to read the article as I've been checking your math -- and I was drunk when I was doing it. Just be careful that your intoxication doesn't lend itself to adding incorrect data to articles. -- Captain MKB 16:02, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
That's why i posted here to sober up. --Farragut79 16:36, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Junior officer aboard the Enterprise Edit

I've removed "junior officer" from the "Starfleet service record". He wasn't actually assigned to the Enterprise in that capacity - he wasn't supposed to be aboard. His first assignment was as acting first officer. --Columbia clipper 01:17, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

I've reverted -- there was a period of time where Pike definitely acknowledged his presence and accepted his input as a junior officer as Kirk acted as part of the bridge staff briefing Pike on the Narada situation, but well before the battle where Pike named him acting XO. -- Captain MKB 01:21, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Pike pointed out as they left the bridge (I paraphrase) "You aren't even supposed to be here." The context of the scene was that Kirk was barely on reprieve from being thrown in the brig, then pressed into action when proven right. --Columbia clipper 01:24, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
