But none of this adds up with Kirk's age. TOS established in season one he was 34. Ok, 5 year mission. He's now 39. 2.5 years as cheif of Starfleet operations, he's now 41. Another 5 year mission, now he's 46. Another roughly 2 years of Academy work, he's approximately 48.
TWOK has Kirk celebrating his 50th BIRTHDAY! What happend to those 2 missing years???
