Soulcatcher: Han Solo went from smuggler to General pretty quick too.

Middle of the third movie, he started with his own ship in the first.  Not even close.  What we're talking about would be like a little kid taking out a bunch of trade federation ships.

I Like Bread: TOS has probably been responsible for more idiotic sci-fi tropes than any other franchise.

But it did lead to an increase in support for space exploration, by repeatedly telling us that space is just jam-packed with hot alien babes who are (for some reason) anatomically-compatible with humans, and eager to be taught about this Earth emotion called "love."

Madbassist1: As a result, he was commissioned directly to the rank of captain and appointed as commanding officer of the service's flagship, the USS Enterprise. This makes me cry...and hate.

Yes. I would have liked it better if the scene following the Kobayashi Maru  took place 3 years later with Kirk as third in command behind Spock and Spock still pissed at him for beating him at his test on an Enterprise that had been in service for a few years already. And then, later in the movie, have old Spock mention that Kirk's dad was one of the original designers for the Enterprise which, in an altered time line, could explain why the Enterprise looked different and was launched at later stardate. But old time Trekies are the only ones who would notice or care.

Jaws75: Unfortunately, the makers of ST09 and STID--and Paramount itself--don't get any of this at all.

No, they think that replacing James T. Kirk with Poochie was a great idea. Because it's so hip and now, like what all the kids are into these days.

sprag: Wellon Dowd: So you're expecting 24-year-old Kirk to be the same as 34 or 54-year-old Kirk?

Nope, but a real person would be a vast improvement.   There were no qualities in the 24yo version of Kirk that would allow him to grow into the legend that he's surely to become.  Being an ass isn't a legendary quality.  He was a one dimensional character and the writers bent the universe around so he could become a captain and start down that road.

I'm pretty sure that pushing someone and catching them before they fell while saying "Saved your life" would get you promoted to admiral in that universe...

Are you sure?

Also, having already seen Into Darkness, I can tell you that those plot points about him being promoted way beyond his abilities, being a total ass, and using his crew as his soundboard to check his ideas are addressed quite, quite quickly.
Having said that, Benedict Cumberbatch easily steals the whole movie, and turns it from a 2.5/4 to an easy 3.5.

Mugato: RexTalionis: The other movies (Star Trek III, Star Trek V,  Star Treks VII-X - actually, especially VII-X) were all big dumb movies.

I really don't get the hate for Trek 3.

Christopher Lloyd's hamfest makes that movie worth watching...seriously.
