I think Pike will figure more into the Academy-Kirk "present" story re: Spock's service under his command, and/or the eventual handover of Enterprise command. Unless they somehow make Pike the first captain of the E during Young Kirk's childhood, perhaps with the launch of the ship. In any case, the only casting info thus far points only to an adult, 'contemporary' Pike as Kirk's senior in age and experience.
