Cool. I haven't read the novel. I was just havin' some fun with the film. That's pretty coincidental

Thanks! I don't think it was ever addressed as far as "canon" that Spock was older than Kirk. But I always assumed so for the same reasons you point out. And I think it is in the Encyclopedia and Chronology that he's older than Kirk. To me it makes sense. And I feel that the Klingon scenes enhanced the flow of the movie because it addressed the glaring issue of what the flying frak Nero and his band of goony tattoomulans were doing farting around the galaxy for 25 years
