Antonia met Kirk in Idaho in 2282, while horseriding in the vicinity of Kirk's uncle's place. Enjoying his (temporary) retirement from Starfleet, Kirk was also out horseriding, and the two of them hit it off. The relationship ended when Kirk decided to return to Starfleet (or shortly thereafter) in 2283. (TNG movie, novelization & comic adaptation: Star Trek: Generations; TOS novel: Elusive Salvation)
- The Crucible novel series, possessing some continuity-differences from most other TOS novels, places this event as taking place in the year 2284.
In 2293, Salvatori attended Kirk's memorial service that was held on the grounds of Starfleet Academy. Also in attendance were former crewmembers of the USS Enterprise and some of his other old "acquaintances". (TOS - Crucible novel: The Fire and the Rose)
