Captain James Tiberius "Jim" Kirk
is a character in the Star Trek media franchise, appearing in numerous television episodes, films, books, comics, and video games. As the captain of the starship USS Enterprise, Kirk leads his crew as they explore "where no man has gone before". Kirk, played by William Shatner, first appears in the second episode of Star Trek, "Where No Man Has Gone Before". Shatner continued in the role for three seasons, and he voiced Kirk in the animated series (1973–74). Shatner returned to the role for the first Star Trek film, Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) and in six subsequent films. Chris Pine portrayed a younger version of the character in the 2009 Star Trek film, with Jimmy Bennett playing Kirk as a child. Other actors have played the character in fan-created media, and the character has been the subject of multiple spoofs and satires. The character is primarily a protagonist in the media in which he appears, often with the characters of Spock and Leonard McCoy acting as logical and emotional sounding boards, respectively. The character has been praised for his leadership traits, and also criticized for his relationships with women.
Spock, commonly Mister Spock,
is a fictional character in the Star Trek media franchise. First portrayed by Leonard Nimoy in the original Star Trek series, Spock also appears in the animated Star Trek series, two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, seven of the Star Trek feature films, and numerous Star Trek books, comics, and video games. In the 2009 film Star Trek, Nimoy reprised his role alongside Zachary Quinto, who played a younger, alternate-timeline version of the character, and Jacob Kogan playing Spock as a child. Spock serves aboard the starship Enterprise, as science officer and first officer, and later as commanding officer of two iterations of the vessel. Spock's mixed human-Vulcan heritage serves as an important plot element in many of the character's appearances. Along with Captain James T. Kirk and Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy, he is one of the three central characters in the original Star Trek series and its films. After retiring from Starfleet, Spock serves as a Federation ambassador, contributing toward the détente between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. In his later years, he serves as Federation ambassador to the Romulan Empire and becomes involved in the ill-fated attempt to save Romulus from a supernova.
