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. (VOY episode: "Caretaker", VOY novel: Homecoming)
Kim was born in 2349 (VOY episode: "Eye of the Needle") in Monterey, South Carolina on Earth (VOY episode: "One", VOY novel: Pathways) to John Kim and Mary Shin Ok Kim. (VOY episode: "Author, Author", VOY novel: Pathways)
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)
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.

The 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)
