Kirk never claimed he was born in Iowa.
He says he's from Iowa.
Big difference.
"Let me guess, you're from outer space."
"No, I'm from Iowa. I only work in outer space."

Also, Chief Engineer Olson dies, allowing that to happen.

Was that a given here?

Was Olsen the Chief Engineer or just an engineer?

Yeah, I missed hearing Dr. McCoy call out to "Nurse Chapel" after the Enterprise was hit, and seeing the tribble on the DV starbase. Look for those.

And see if you think young Kirk calls the kid he drives by "Johnny" or "Georgie," and if you think that's Wil Wheaton on the Kelvin (lower right corner of the screen after they've been given the order to evacuate).

That's an order, ensign! (You know, from one ensign to another ...)

Lucky you, getting to see it again!

He was described ijn the movie as as Chief Engineer Olsen. So he is described on IMDB.

Ok.. paid REAL close attention... (and audio recorded it on my phone..)

he says word for word.. " Mr Kirk, Mr Sulu, Engineer Olsen will spacejump" etc etc.. He was just an engineer.. also watched in credits just listed as engineer olsen.. sorry... and imdb is NOT a definitive source (but a good point of reference)
