James Tiberius Kirk: Great Fictional American Hero

Although many Christwire articles cite Star Trek as a cesspit if inequity there is one bright shining star of American Morality on the horizon.

James Tiberius “Jim” Kirk also known as Captain Kirk, was born and raised in Riverside, Iowa on 22 March 2233. In 2250, he started his training at Starfleet Academy in San Francisco. Luckily in the 200 years from now San Francisco has been cleaned of much of the filth that inhabits it now. It is certain that he did not succumb to any homogayness.

During command training, Kirk experienced the Kobayashi Maru scenario a simulation used to evaluate a student’s reactions to a “no-win” battle and rescue situation. Kirk had two defeats, but before his third attempt, Kirk reprogrammed the simulation computer, consequently becoming the only cadet in Academy history to beat the “no-win” scenario, and earned a commendation for original thinking.

At the age of 31 he was promoted to captain, and was the youngest captain in the fleet’s history at that time. Kirk was slated to command one of the twelve Constitution-class starships, the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701). Although he Commanded the Enterprise for 3 decades is was the first historic five-year mission from 2265 to 2270 that made him a legend in space exploration. During this historic mission, Kirk violated the Prime Directive on at least one occasion in order to ensure the survival of the Pelosian race. Years prior to this, Kirk also prevented the extinction of the Baezians and the Chenari.

The USS Enterprise returned to Earth in 2270. Kirk’s successful mission resulted in his promotion to rear admiral making him the youngest admiral in Starfleet history at age 37. Unfortunately in 2286 Admiral Kirk was demoted for disobeying the orders of a superior officer. For this he suffered a permanent reduction in rank to captain and a return to the duty that had served the Federation so well, starship command. He was assigned to another Constitution-class starship, the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A)

In 2293, the Enterprise-A was assigned to escort the Klingon Chancellor Gorkon to Earth for a peace conference. After a long drawn out affair, peace was brought to the Federation and Klingon Empire culminating in the Khitomer Accords.

Shortly after retirement, he joined the maiden voyage of the Excelsior-class starship USS Enterprise-B, for a publicity stunt. Unfortunately they received a distress signal from two ships trapped in an energy distortion called the Nexus. Kirk volunteered to modify the ship’s deflector relays and successfully enabled the ship’s escape, but not before a burst of energy from the Nexus breached the secondary hull. Kirk was lost, and presumed dead.

It was discovered, 78 years later, by Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise-D (a french homogay),That Kirk was trapped in the Nexus. Unfortunately Kirk died helping Picard stop Tolian Soran from destroying the Veridian system. Picard buried Kirk in a simple stone cairn on a Veridian III mountain top.
