The business of Kirk getting demoted may help address criticism leveled at the previous film, criticism which I share, that Kirk went from cadet to captain of a ship in a very short amount of time. Even with Kirk’s success and defeat of Nero, a promotion would be in order, but not a captaincy methinks. Time enough for that with a little more experience.
