I, for one, was very impressed with Pine's version of Kirk. I would have been happy to see the Shat as Kirk, but then it would not have been as good a story; (sorry, but I think we have a complete picture of the ending years of Kirk's life and career...time to learn some of the history from early days, and that means a new actor to play Kirk.)

It would be nice to see a story from the original timeline, with Kirk's childhood and academy days shown; and I think Pine could do it, too. It would also be nice to learn a bit more about the rest of the bridge crew's early lives, as a prelude to how and why they all end up on the Enterprise with Kirk.

I really think that this cast could handle stories from either timeline, old or new (pre- or post-Nero?) as long as they were NEW stories, not just retells of TOS episodes.

Chris Pine did an excellent job playing Captian Kirk, but the role will always belong to William Shatner. IMHO
