Default One thing that would have made the movie was Kirks first Captains Log: Agree??

We never got a Log from Captain Pike but we did get a log from Spock explaining the loss of Vulcan. What would have made the movie before it ended was when Kirk took command of the Enterprise, he should have initiated a Captains Log before they went to warp. I mean wouldnt it have been memoriable to hear Kirks first ever Captains Log? I remember on DS9 when Sisko went from Commander to Captain he made his first Captains Log in that excellent episode.

He made a log entry after being stranded on Delta Vega... not captain at that stage though.

We got Spock doing the classic voice-over at the end, which was more than adequate for me.

He probably had to lay a "Captains log" right before he entered the bridge as Captain for the first time. XD

Maybe it was filmed, but not used. I figured since this was an "origins" film of sorts, it may have been deemed not to be needed.

I can only speak for myself of course, but if I didn't notice it then I feel it wasn't needed. He wasn't officially Captain until the very end.

'Acting Captain's Log' just doesn't seem right. Though I could have lived with them swapping Nimoy's 'Final Frontier' for Pine doing it.

Did we ever actually see the "head" this time out?

Having his first Captain's Log when he took command of the Enterprise would have been perfect.
