Default Original Kirk, Young Kirk

So I'm watching TOS episodes tonight... trying to imagine how new young Kirk developed into the Kirk we know of old... very cool, very interesting.. fun food for thought... Can't wait for the sequel lol :P

Agree completely, just bought the first season on Blu-Ray, waiting for the sequel just to hear "Spock... we have... to get out of here!", hopefully they throw it in.

I need to try that. Watch TOS now that I've seen the movie. Should be fun!

Kirk in the original series was very mature, no nonense kind of a guy I think but this young Kirk will mature through the sequels isn't that a possibility?

The tellarite syphillis was just just a rumour. Kirk kept asking Bones to confirm it but Bones just couldn't 'tell....allright?'









(sorry, that was bad)

It was bad but it was really quite funny too. Everyone must be taking their sense of humour pills today. Either that or lots of drink

Sorry to burst your bubble guys, but we're dealing with two developmentally different Kirks, from the film and tv series. Different histories, character development, etc. Didn't you read the memo?

Plus, i don't think J.J. is interested in character development or continuity issues with the original TOS Kirk, that's why he developed his own universe.

Yes....we then binned it like most useless memos.

Like it or lump it this Kirk will ultimately inherit the same attributes of the Prime Kirk even if the route there is different, just like most of the other characters will. He already demonstrated several of them in the new film and that will only continue.
