The Kirk family ancestry included settlers who pioneered the American frontier in the 19th century, and the Kirks of the early 23rd century rediscovered the impulse for untamed spaces. After his early childhood on Earth, James T. Kirk the son of George Samuel Kirk, Sr. and Winona Kirk was living on Tarsus IV by the age of 13, his brother's family later lived on colonies as well. (TOS episodes: "Spectre of the Gun", "The Conscience of the King" and "Operation -- Annihilate!")

George and Winona's other son George Samuel Kirk, Jr. (called "Sam" only by his brother) was a researcher, hoping to transfer to the Earth Colony 2 research station in 2265. Sam, along with his wife Aurelan and three sons, joined his younger brother for a farewell visit before the USS Enterprise departed for her five-year mission. It was the last time Jim saw Sam alive. Sam ended up on Deneva, with his wife and son Peter by 2267. The neural parasites invaded Deneva that year and killed the couple, but Peter survived the attack. (TOS novel: Enterprise: The First Adventure; episodes: "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" and "Operation -- Annihilate!")

Jim Kirk recognized the impact his life in Starfleet had on his family life. In 2287, while camping with his friends in Yosemite National Park, he referred to himself, Spock, and McCoy, as the only family that men like themselves were likely to have. (TOS movie: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)
