Captain James Tiberius Kirk is the captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise and the protagonist of the original series of Star Trek. Born in Iowa, Kirk would grow up to enter Starfleet Academy, where he was commissioned as an officer for a time before swiftly rising to the rank of captain. Through his wit and bravery, Kirk became one of the most legendary captains in the entire galaxy, with his missions and victories becoming standard curriculum for young students.
A wise, charismatic, and principled leader, Kirk was capable of seeing his crew out of many a scrape, but also relied heavily on the strength of his crew (and especially his first mate and best friend Spock). He is generally level-headed, though can also get angry if provoked. He is also something of a player, having dated many women; but is never quite able to commit to any one woman.
