He was the leading character in the original series and the films based on it, first appearing in the episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before". His Starfleet serial number was SC 937-0176 CEC.

Kirk's middle initial was R. in his first appearance, but T. in every appearance thereafter. The full middle name Tiberius first appeared in the episode "BEM" from the 1974 animated Star Trek series, and subsequently appeared in the introduction to the Star Trek: The Motion Picture novelization. It was explained that Kirk's grandfather Samuel was fascinated by the Roman emperor Tiberius. The name finally appeared canonically in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

Kirk's adventures and tactics are legendary in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants and continue to be cited well into the 24th century. He was said to have "quite the reputation as a ladies' man" by Captain Sisko. He had the biggest record in Starfleet's Department of Temporal Investigations, with seventeen temporal violations. He was also noted for blatant violations of the Prime Directive, including occasions where he saved the Pelosians, Baezians, and the Chenari from extinction.


A few novels have given Kirk's father the name "George Samuel Kirk, Sr.," although this information is not canon. George Samuel and Aurelan Kirk, Kirk's older brother and sister-in-law, died during the invasion of neural parasites on Deneva in 2267. Kirk's nephew, Peter Kirk, survived. Kirk is known to have at least two children: David Marcus, and the child of Miramanee, a woman he married while suffering from amnesia. In the "Shatnerverse" series of novels, he has a third child, a son named Joseph.


Early years

Virtually nothing regarding Kirk's birth has been established in on-screen canon, except for the fact that he was born in Iowa in what is today the United States. One speculated birthplace for Kirk is Riverside, Iowa, though other real-life towns in the state have laid claim to the future Enterprise captain. His birthdate has never been officially established, but fanon speculation suggests March 22, 2233, based upon the real-life birthdate and age of actor William Shatner.

While a youth on Tarsus IV, he was one of only nine surviving witnesses to the massacre of 4,000 colonists because of utilitarian extermination by Kodos the Executioner so that the colony could survive a devastating famine.

Early career

He had a distinguished career in Starfleet Academy, becoming the first person to defeat the Kobayashi Maru test that stymied cadets for many decades, even until the 2370s. Whereas any situation would be met by the simulator's overriding dictate that the cadet lose, Kirk won by rewriting the program to allow him to rescue the Kobayashi Maru's crew. For this he received a commendation for original thinking.
