Excellent character piece. I can really see how TOS Kirk could be unsettled by their AOS counterparts. There's just enough similarity between him and his counterpart to make the differences all uncanny-valley.
I would also echo the suggestion for a sequel/chapter 2 of this fic from AOS Kirk's POV though. I am guessing his sentiments towards the more peaceful (dare I say it, mature) TOS Starfleet and counterparts to be something out of Sisko's sentiments... "It's easy to be a saint in paradise."

Ah, nice anlaysiss of the AOS crew by Jim. Bravo! :D

I can't believe this kind of crossover is so rare!
Creat job on making it work, I dont suppose there is a sequel?

So true. So dangerous. I like all the delicate hinting around, as you come toward the point. Hurrah characters. And there are some timeline reasons for some of it, the more militarized Federation and all, but...yeah. Eek.
One thing I think really sticks out as a difference in this vein, that you didn't raise, is that XI Spock isn't just more demonstrative, he moves like a predator. There's supposedly something feline about Vulcans generally, but Spocklar is all fierce panther, with a snarl caught in his teeth, while Nimoy's Spock was just as much elk as tiger, and it was a very *calm* tiger. And I might be a little too tired to be entirely coherent.

Excellent insight here. I loved it!
| remerkaba chapter 1 . 9/21/2013
Unique prospective. I really enjoyed this!
| Minecraft Guardiansaiyan chapter 1 . 9/11/2013
Dude...the 2009 crew need to prove that they are NOT a lost cause to old Kirk and the rest of the TOS crew! I get the position but he is also an asshole (a little bit)...
Hopefully you can continue this so that there can be at least a respect for one another! Some talks with the Spock's, Bone's and the Jim's together might clear up a few things...hopefully Old Jim's won't be such a hardass after!

Sequel pretty please? :3
| Maria chapter 1 . 3/26/2013
I find this concept very intriguing, and also very logical considering the "new" Kirk has many of the qualities that "violent" Kirk had. I would also like to propose that you add a second chapter to this in order to more substantially convey your idea of all of the "new" crew being similar to what Kirk's split-side was. Also, it would be fun to read more personal interactions between the "new" and "old" crew in a compare/contrast perspective. I hope you consider my suggestion. This is really groovy.

hmm, are you sure that its not just cuz theyre prettier? (and younger?) :) great fic, though i wouldve liked to have seen the other kirks pov :)
| trekkfan chapter 1 . 2/14/2013
Really good and expresses a lot of the concerns voiced about the JJ universe. I would love to see this continued!
| DragonsRme chapter 1 . 2/11/2013
Wow very interesting plot growing here. Please keep it up and have a plan to send them back. I will be watching this closely
| Lucillia chapter 1 . 2/9/2013
That was good, and entirely logical. I enjoyed reading it.
| Darth Marrs chapter 1 . 1/31/2013
Yup, that about sums it up. JJ's movie was slick, fun to look at and a fast ride, up until you actually started thinking about it. And that's a shame, because ST for me was always supposed to be the thinking person's science fiction show.
