That in itself is contradictory since Kirk is Captain of the Enterprise in TOS and Chekov is an Ensign in Season 2 when he is introduced.

Okay. To me, canon is TOS. Everything in TOS. Timeframes, character ages, anything that stayed consistent for more than one episode should be considered canon. I'm very irritated with this new movie and all it's canon violations. And I don't know if I will like it or not. But because it is Star Trek. I will watch it.
I am wondering if it might be his father Chekov senior they have not mentioned his family except to say that he was a only child.
