Cadets at Shipyard Bar

Starfleet cadets at the Shipyard Bar in Riverside, Iowa bound for Starfleet Academy in 2255.

Socializing cadets

Several cadets were among the crowd that was socializing as Nyota Uhura entered the bar and was first introduced to James T. Kirk.

The first male male cadet was standing in the corridor leading to the main room of the bar when Uhura passed, and briefly greeted her as if they were acquainted.

Two other male cadets were sitting in the main room at a table conversing. While nearby a female cadet was seen sitting at a table with three civilians while they were drinking blue drinks.

One female cadet was greeted by Uhura, who was stopped by her, shortly after entering the bar. Another female cadet was passed by Uhura while walking to the bar.

A male cadet was seen talking to two girls shortly before the fight. (Star Trek)

Burly cadets

These three cadets got into a fight with James T. Kirk after the fourth of them, "Cupcake", tried to protect Uhura. Kirk flirted with Uhura and the cadets were unhappy with this. During the following bar fight they've hit Kirk several times and bruised his face. Their fight was stopped when Captain Christopher Pike piped and sent all visitors out. (Star Trek)

Fight spectators

When the fight started, the first two cadets were among those worriedly observing it. The second cadet quickly composed his stature when he realized that Captain Christopher Pike had arrived.

A female cadet with long blond hair was trying to keep some distance from the fighting men. While a protective male cadet who was talking to a girl before the fight, he tried to protect her, but was ordered by Pike to leave the bar along with the other cadets. (Star Trek)

Another female cadet, who stood out as comparatively very short compared to other bar visitors, was also present during the brawl.

Another unusually short cadet can be seen outside Starfleet Academy when Kirk and McCoy exit discussing the Kobayashi Maru test. While neither performer can be seen clearly enough to be certain, these might be the same.

Shuttle officer

A shuttle officer

This shuttle officer initially refused to allow James T. Kirk to board the shuttlecraft Gilliam, bound for the USS Enterprise, as the cadet, though visibly quite ill with an infection from a Melvaran mud flea bite, was on academic suspension at the time.

He relented, however, after Doctor Leonard McCoy insisted that, while Kirk was not cleared for duty, he was, and, as his attending physician, his authority granted by Starfleet medical code to remain with a patient in his care (in truth McCoy had infected Kirk himself for the express purpose of invoking this regulation) overrode Kirk's grounding. (Star Trek)

This shuttle officer was played by Alex Nevil.
In the novelization of Star Trek, the officer thinks to himself that he has never seen a cadet who looked as bad as Kirk did on the ramp up to the shuttle.

Test administrators

These test administrators were Human members of Starfleet who supervised Starfleet Academy's Kobayashi Maru scenario in 2258 of the alternate reality. They oversaw James T. Kirk's third attempt at taking the test and were baffled by his carefree, whimsical attitude towards the simulation. They were further confounded when, after a brief interruption in the simulation's computer, Kirk beat the simulation, becoming the first cadet to do so. Unbeknownst to them, Kirk had installed a subroutine into the computer, altering the conditions of test to make it possible to win. One of them questioned Spock as to how Kirk beat his test, and the Vulcan replied that he did not know. (Star Trek)
