As STXI is about two guys becoming friends the opening sequence makes sense from a dramatic point of view. Yet from a character perspective it is problematic as it implies that these characters are born at roughly the same time and make similar alienation experiences. This makes Spock seem less like an alien.
This is not meant to be criticism of the film as Star Trek is virtually always plot- and not character-driven.
