"He was my commanding officer from the day I left the academy."Edit
I removed this reference:
- Garrovick was also the commanding officer of the USS Republic, which was the first vessel Kirk served on. (TOS: "Court Martial").
First, there is no mention of who was in command of the Republic in "Court Martial", or any other episode. While it might have been "implied in dialogue that Garrovick was" that ship's commanding officer (see revision history), it is never explicitly states that Republic was Kirk's first commission. That ship may have been a training vessel like Enterprise was in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and Kirk might have been in an officer training program similar to Lieutenant Saavik. In any event, this material, if returned to the main page, should reflect its conjectural nature. GNDN 12:46, February 4, 2011 (UTC)
