Hmm, dunno how much we'll get on Pike. Maybe Pike and Spock together, but Kirk was on the Farragut at that time.

Think Kirk will get to meet him at least while he's in the academy before he gets left in the "Cage"?

I think Pike will figure more into the Academy-Kirk "present" story re: Spock's service under his command, and/or the eventual handover of Enterprise command. Unless they somehow make Pike the first captain of the E during Young Kirk's childhood, perhaps with the launch of the ship. In any case, the only casting info thus far points only to an adult, 'contemporary' Pike as Kirk's senior in age and experience.

Okay. So we have established the Kirk and Spock line but when I saw "Where No Man has Gone Before" yesterday I totally gor got about the other doctor, Dr. Piper, and Gary Mitchel. Gee, where the hell are they going to be? Since this movie is a sort of reinvention, and I do mean SORT of, what is the idea that Abrams is going to do?

I do not know, guess we'll find out in May 2009.

Dr. Piper could have been filling in for McCoy?? It was never stated that McCoy joined the crew on XX date in Trek lore.

Micthell i hope we'll see.

Well, Gary Mitchell has history with Kirk's character in the Academy, so there's a good chance we'll see him. As for his actions in "Where No Man Has Gone Before," that's a TOS story so it hasn't happened yet in the timeframe of this film.

Same with Dr. Piper in the timeline. And let's face it, he was a 'failed' character that was replaced with McCoy -- I doubt Abrams and team are going to spend screen time shoehorning in EVERY possible character in TREK history. McCoy is the ship's doctor, and they didn't hire Karl Urban to do a walk-on in the last 12 minutes of the film as the newest member of the crew.

It would be nice if there were time in the movie to see some of the pasts of the characters in order to make them all more "real."
