Does the initial first back-up performed on Time Capsule have to be wireless or is there a way to do so hard-wired?
I've used Airport Extreme with a 1TB drive connected via USB. Performing the initial backup wirelessly takes an extraordinary long time.
Is there a way to perform the first back up "hard-wired" to the Time Capsule and then allow subsequent backups to occur wirelessly?

Yes, Chapter 1 of your Time Capsule Setup Guide suggests: "use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the LAN port on your Time Capsule."
