George Samuel Kirk, Sr. was a noted Human Starfleet officer in the 23rd century, serial number SA-733-9624-AM. (TOS website: Starfleet Shipyard)


George was born in 2202, in Riverside, Iowa on Earth's North American continent, the youngest son of Tiberius Kirk. He also had one elder brother, James Kirk. (TOS movie: Star Trek, TOS novels: The Motion Picture, Best Destiny, Past Prologue, Time for Yesterday, Enterprise: The First Adventure, Final Frontier, TOS website: Starfleet Shipyard)

His paternal grandfather was Samuel Abraham Kirk, who served as the ship's historian aboard the USS Pioneer, one of the first Federation Starfleet vessels, in the 2160s. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: A Choice of Futures)

George Kirk did not believe in the "no-win scenario", something in which his youngest son would develop a belief. (ST website:

In the mid-2220s, Kirk was a midshipman on the working trader ship Alexandria. Several years later, he met a young woman named Winona. They were married in 2229. (TOS novels: The Great Starship Race, Final Frontier)

Married life was an adventure for the young couple, but once Winona became pregnant they looked for a place to raise their family. They bought a farm in the small town of Riverside, Iowa, though most of the farming would be done under lease by their Amish neighbors. Most household duties fell to Winona, as George still served in Starfleet as a security officer and was away from Earth for long periods. (TOS novels: Final Frontier, Best Destiny)

Despite this the Kirks still managed to start a family. George Samuel Kirk, Jr., their elder son, was born on 12 August 2230. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure; TOS novel: Enterprise: The First Adventure)

By 2233, George was a lieutenant commander in Starfleet, and served as first officer of the USS Kelvin. He was killed that year, just seconds after the birth of his second son, James T. Kirk, when he made a suicide run against the Narada with the otherwise abandoned Kelvin. (TOS movie: Star Trek)

Circa 2258, George Kirk, Jr. kept a hologram of his parents in his home on Deneva. (TOS comic: "Operation: Annihilate!, Part 2")

The following year, James Kirk remembered his father's voice and sacrifice while being resurrected with Khan Noonien Singh's blood. (TOS movie: Star Trek Into Darkness)
