Carbon Creek Jack = Jackson Roykirk Edit
Um, when was it revealed in the "Carbon Creek" episode that the teenage Jack was actually Jackson Roykirk? Just curious... If it was the intention of the writers, it should be noted in italics. If it's just one person's speculation, then it doesn't belong here. --From Andoria with Love 20:33, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Its pure speculation, the page has been moved accordingly. --Alan del deccio 00:37, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- I also removed this reference:
- It has been uncited for a very long time, and still comes across as speculation. --Alan del Beccio 20:24, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
Why is it "Roykirk" and not "Kirk"? Edit
I have always thought that Nomad was confused between "Jackson Roy Kirk" and "James T. Kirk". Are there any scripts floating around or other documents that say "Roykirk", other than James Blish's work? Thanks, Bcorr from Wikipedia | talk 11:16, 30 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Jackson Roy Kirk and James R. Kirk Edit
Something that puzzled me for years. I know that in "Where No Man Has Gone Before" Kirk's tombstone showed his name as "James R. Kirk" and this was due to the episode being made before his name was established as "James T. Kirk" I often wondered if the writers had originally intended for him to be named James R. Kirk thus his shortened name would be "J. R. Kirk" and if Jackson Roykirk was actually Jackson Roy Kirk, his shortened name would be "J. R. Kirk" as well thus explaining Nomad's confusion on the issue. Was Captain Kirk ever called James T. Kirk before "The Changeling" ?
- Prior to "The Changeling," Kirk's name was given as James T. in "Court Martial," "A Taste of Armageddon," "Tomorrow Is Yesterday," "Errand of Mercy," "Who Mourns for Adonais," and "Metamorphosis." - Bridge 08:52, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
- Could it be possible that Roykirk is an Augment that betrayed Khan and joined the NASA Science Division and was therefore allowed in Human Society although he got lots of prejudice. he even got most of his Improvements removed. but the improved mind remained. I only suggest this because he wears similar Clothing that is worn by Colonel Green and The 20th Century Picture of Khan Noonian Singh and his desire for "Perfection" is not unlike Khan's Eugenics Philosophy. and I think that instead of Nomad being launched in 2002 I suggest that it happened in 2047. No Don't think that I actually suggest that this is true its just a speculation that i want fans to see. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk).
