Did I say specifically they weren't related?

That kind of fanwank linkage has never been my cup of tea personally, but I wouldn't preclude the possibility.

However, nor is it an automatic fact.

They put him in a wheelchair and gave him a promotion because Captains of Starships can't be handicapped. In other words, an excuse to give Enterprise to Young Kirk.

Well for a long time they weren't women either......I guess the taboos have to come down one at a time.

Whoever said Pike was handicapped by the end of the film? As far as I could tell he was just recouping.

He might stay in the wheelchair, he might come out of it - who knows yet!

Now that I think of it... Seriously, it would be a perfect way to satisfy the demands of the LGBT folks. Just a line from Pike that he'll go home to his husband on Earth. It wouldn't be in-your-face and yet it would be an important character who is respected.
