Chapel, very possible!

Carol Marcus, again very possible!

T'Pring, no. because in "Amok Time" Spock states he has not seen her since the age of 7.
That was just in the books? I know I read it somewhere, but I guess I also assumed it to be on film. It just seemed like that to the trek crowd, McCoy's divorce had been common knowledge. I could swear though, that I'd heard something about that mentioned on film. Are you sure that subject wasn't addressed in "The Man Trap"? I can't remember for sure, but if memory serves, then I think that some mention of his marriage was made in that episode.
