That SO needs to be digitally altered in the DVD releases.
I remember one of the novels explaining that the "R" was something derrogatory Mitchell used to call Kirk during his Academy days. Not canon, of course, but I like the idea...

As far as Mitchell is concerned, I wouldn't be surprised if the character makes at least a brief appearance and/or is mentioned in passing. The role need not be a major one, nor even a speaking role, because fans-in-the-know would know who he is and what he's destined to become...
Free your mind, and the rest will follow.
