"The Last of the Claudians" was a nickname given to Ensign James T. Kirk by his classmates at Starfleet Academy after he excelled in a debate on the virtues of a republic. The nickname lasted about three minutes before Graves, the history instructor, remarked that he was more like an earlier Claudian, Tiberius, referring to Kirk's impatience sometimes overwhelming his compassion. Kirk would use this to remind himself to never give anyone reason to compare him to his namesake. (TOS novel: The Galactic Whirlpool)
