Family[edit | edit source]

The young James Kirk thought himself very much like his father, George, a commander in Starfleet. He surprised his father by applying to Starfleet Academy and being accepted.

Alternate timelines[edit | edit source]

Doomsday War[edit | edit source]

In an alternate timeline where the Enterprise was destroyed by the doomsday machine in 2254, Kirk would become commanding officer of the USS Farragut in 2258 after the death of Captain Steve Garrovick. While commanding the Farragut, he had many of the same adventures he had on the Enterprise, a result of parallel timeline development. He was a valiant commander in the Doomsday War.

In 2268, Kirk was contacted by an alternate version of Spock, who assisted them in preventing the Doomsday War. He traveled back in time with Spock and McCoy to 2006, where he received the microtapes that belonged to Commodore Matthew Decker. After returning to 2269, Kirk decided it was necessary to take the Farragut back to 2254, and combine forces with the Enterprise. Kirk melded with Spock, gaining knowledge on how to work with Christopher Pike.

Kirk commanded the Farragut when it combined forces with the Enterprise to battle the doomsday machine. After the machine retreated to the year 2265, Kirk ordered the Farragut crew to follow the ship using the slingshot effect. With a future Enterprise and the USS Daedalus, commanded by Fleet Captain Pike, Kirk was able to destroy the original doomsday machine and prevent the alternate timeline.
