Review of chapter "What Makes The Men We Are" from Tjack
Review:
A thoughtful take on both versions.
I think each is mainly a child of its time. The original was created by someone with real world experience in the military and the L.A.P.D. so the main characters reflected the age and maturity that commanding officers should (in the best of all possible worlds) posses.
The modern however shows the current trend towards youth and impetuousness always being seen as the right answer against the hide-bound ways of those too set in their ways to see the truth. (Take Kirk charging onto the bridge demanding to talk to Pike.)
Right or wrong, good or bad, each needs to be judged on its own merits, not simply by which viewpoint the debater personally prefers.

Interesting mix; sort of interested in what the younger Kirk sees now!

Review of chapter "What Makes The Men We Are" from burmafrdnow
Review:
the Movie was a joke - what marked the ORIGINAL star trek was Roddenberry trying to make it as sensible and logical as he could. Abrams just ignored that.

As has been said, there is no way anyone like THAT Kirk is given command of a star ship; and even if you got THAT desperate you give him a more veteran crew.

OR you make it temporary. Just for the duration of the crisis- and only THEN if you have no choice which was BS.


I absolutely agree with the original Kirk's summation- get them OUT of here

Can you imagine the 2009 Kirk being able to logic things and use diplomacy like the original Kirk? Not a chance

Not to mention I guarantee that the Metrons and Melkotians and company would not take to that Kirk

And above ALL I guarantee that there will be a Klingon war with that Kirk

Review of chapter "What Makes The Men We Are" from wonderbee
Review:
Found myself nodding along with Kirk there, and quite agree, the way the crew basically got shoved into the command of the Enterprise from the last movie made me wonder what exactly Starfleet was thinking, and SFDebris Ina review said it best, Alt Kirk is not forged by all the difficulties canon Kirk had, and that makes him lacking IMO.

Review of chapter "What Makes The Men We Are" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Really thought-provoking! Who better than Jim Kirk to discern the possible down-side to a younger, more free-wheeling and emotionally damaged Jim Kirk with a younger, more aggressive and equally supportive Bones and Spock to back him up, in charge of a kick-ass ship and a forged-in-hell crew?

Review of chapter "What Makes The Men We Are" from Philister
Review:
This story closely mirrors my own thinking about the 2009 Trek movie. Giving a not-even-graduated-yet cadette permanent command of a starship? And not even an experienced crew of officers to back him up? It boggles the mind. And I can easily imagine young Shatner giving the other Kirk suspicious glances. Very nicely written.
