Harry Kim (2377)
|Full Name:||Harry S.L. Kim|
|Birthplace:||Monterey, South Carolina, Earth|
|Previous Assignment:||ops manager, USS Voyager|
|Assignment:||chief of security/tactical officer, USS Voyager|
Harry S.L. Kim was a human Starfleet officer who served aboard the Intrepid-class starship, USS Voyager, for her seven-year voyage in the Delta Quadrant as operations officer. Upon Voyager's return to the Alpha Quadrant, Kim took over the role of chief of security and tactical officer. (VOY episode: "Caretaker", VOY novel: Homecoming)
Kim's best friend as a child was Alex. Kim and Alex would stay in contact with each other through communicators and discuss musicians such as Georges Bizet and Niccolò Paganini. Alex later moved to Singapore, far out of range of their communicators. The pair solved the problem by using a communication satellite to boost the signal. (VOY - Invasion! novel: The Final Fury)
As a child, Harry Kim was exposed to Rigellian fever while playing with Orion children from an Orion diplomat's entourage. He was placed in quarantine for three days, but never developed symptoms. (VOY novelization: Caretaker)
In late December 2373, Voyager unfortunately entered Borg space. However, the crew's fears were slightly assuaged when they discovered an area of space, dubbed the "Northwest Passage", which was devoid of Borg activity. After Voyager had been passed by a fleet of fifteen Borg cubes, which had ignored the Federation starship, Harry determined that the fleet had been destroyed. Deciding to investigate, Captain Kathryn Janeway ordered Harry, Commander Chakotay and Lieutenant Tuvok to transport over the wreckage of a cube and investigate. Shortly after beaming over, Harry was attacked by a member of Species 8472 and wounded, his body infected by alien cells which were destroying his own. Beamed back to Voyager for emergency treatment by the Doctor and Kes, he was eventually cured after the Doctor developed a method of modifying Borg nanoprobes to attack the alien cells. (VOY episodes: "Scorpion", "Scorpion, Part II"; VOY - Infinity's Prism novel: Places of Exile)
Return to the FederationEdit
In one timeline, when he returned to Earth in 2378, he was met by his parents and Libby Webber. He was also promoted to Lieutenant. Harry and Libby rekindled their old romantic relationship, but Harry was unaware that Libby was now working for Starfleet Intelligence as a deep cover agent.
Harry soon aided Admiral Kathryn Janeway in breaking Seven of Nine, Icheb, and the Doctor out of Starfleet holding cells. The Voyager crew then retook their ship and was able to stop the attempted Borg assimilation of Earth. Harry was repeatedly helped by receiving secret messages from "Peregrine" whom he never discovered was actually Libby. (VOY novels: Homecoming, The Farther Shore)
Return to VoyagerEdit
Harry still served aboard the Voyager in 2381 when the Borg Collective launched their invasion of the Federation. He was the bridge watch officer when Tom Paris received a prerecorded message from his father Admiral Owen Paris; Harry had to report that Starbase 234 had been destroyed by the Borg, killing Owen. (ST - Destiny novel: Gods of Night)
Voyager was part of the allied task force that assembled at the Azure Nebula while the USS Aventine and USS Enterprise-E scouted subspace tunnels. Kim monitored the Bridge in the absence of Chakotay and Tom Paris, but called them back to the Bridge when one of the tunnels unexpectedly opened. He armed weapons and shields as over seven thousand Borg cubes poured from the tunnel, but they were quickly overrun. (ST - Destiny novel: Mere Mortals).
In 2379, Kim revealed to Tom Paris that himself and Libby had officially broken up due to her refusing his marriage proposal twice. By 2381, she was engaged to her superior, Aidan Fletcher at Starfleet Intelligence. (VOY novel: Full Circle)
Following the revelation that B'Elanna and Miral were still alive, Harry refused to speak to Tom and was deeply hurt by what Tom had done. It took a holodeck session with Hugh Cambridge in a Captain Proton program to help them heal their friendship. (VOY novel: Unworthy)
In 2381, after the successful decryption of a distress call that Voyager had received while still stranded in the Delta Quadrant, Captain Chakotay awarded Kim a commendation for his work. He also entered into a romantic relationship with Nancy Conlon. After Tom Paris was ordered to return to Earth in 2382 to attend a hearing with his mother over the custody of his daughter, Harry was made temporary first officer. (VOY novel: Protectors)
In an alternate timeline in which the Cardassian Union did not withdraw from Bajor in 2369, Kim was the operations manager of a version of Voyager which was not stranded in the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker in 2371.
He was killed in 2373 when Voyager was destroyed in the Dorvan sector by a fleet of Cardassian Galor-class warships armed with phased polaron beam weapons, which they had procured from their newfound Gamma Quadrant allies, the Dominion. (TNG - Myriad Universes novel: A Gutted World)
