Right...but the point is that it's possible for the MOVIE (which shows Kirk and Pike on the same bridge) to be canon.

Kirk clearly states that he didn't meet Pike until he was promoted to Fleet Captain.

MENDEZ: You ever met Chris Pike?
KIRK: When he was promoted to Fleet Captain.
MENDEZ: About your age. Big, handsome man, vital, active.

Note that according to Mendez, Kirk and Pike are about the same, the fast track for Kirk has a lot of traction.

Thanks to Ron Salon for the signature banner!
