Kirk was always very young to be a Starship captain, taking a ship out on such a mission, so it seems that if he left the Academy in his early twenties but was a captain by his thirties he must have progressed faster than most of his contemporaries.

Whether it was circumstance, ability or a mix of both is perhaps something that this film will be able to answer.

Although it can be passed over in the film, though, I have to confess to wondering if there will be a dialogue reference to his serving aboard the USS Farragut before coming to the Enterprise. I don't expect any scenes there - they wouldn't fit into the film - but I wonder if it will be covered.
