The USS James T. Kirk was an Akira-class starship in operation with the Federation Starfleet in the late 2370s and early 2380s. Named in honor of the legendary 23rd century Starfleet officer James T. Kirk, she had an illustrious service history which included exploration and defensive missions.

From 2379 to 2381, she was commanded by Captain Elias Vaughn, former first officer of Starbase Deep Space 9 and Starfleet Intelligence operative.

During the Borg Invasion of 2381, the James T. Kirk was instrumental in Starfleet's defense of the planet Alonis from a fleet of six Borg cubes. Using both conventional and special purpose transphasic weaponry, the Kirk single handedly destroyed three cubes. During an attack run on a fourth cube following the disabling of the USS New York, the James T. Kirk was severely damaged and disabled. Captain Vaughn decided to ram the cube in an effort to disable it, but altered the ship's heading, causing the Kirk to impact the outer hull indirectly.

Nearly one-third of the cube was destroyed from the actions of the James T. Kirk and her crew, but the ship was severely damaged in the process and both of her warp nacelles were destroyed. Thirty-one members of the James T. Kirk's crew were killed during the battle, and Captain Vaughn was pronounced brain dead from his injuries. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Rough Beasts of Empire)

Alternate timelineEdit

In a timeline where the Battle of Wolf 359 didn't occur, Captain William T. Riker of the USS Enterprise-D saw the James T. Kirk at Starbase 234 from an airlock of Callendra Station. (ST - Myriad Universes novel: The Embrace of Cold Architects)
