John Kyle (also known as Thomas Kyle or Winston Kyle) was a male human Starfleet officer who served in the 23rd century. Throughout the bulk of his career he was a transporter and operations officer whose most famous posting was aboard the USS Enterprise.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Kyle was born in Sydney, Australia, on Earth in 2241. At the age of 18 he entered Starfleet Academy in San Francisco, and graduated in 2263. Ensign Kyle was then assigned as a transporter technician aboard the USS Bull Run. While aboard the Bull Run he continued to study for his starship pilot certificate, which he completed in 2264, and earned a promotion to lieutenant, junior grade. (TOS novel: Traitor Winds and ST video game: Starship Creator)

Very shortly prior to his posting aboard the Enterprise, Kyle participated in a dangerous exploratory recovery mission of a crashed, irradiated Klingon cargo vessel on planet Archanis IV. (TOS novel: That Which Divides)

Aboard the Enterprise[edit | edit source]

In 2265, Kyle transferred to the Enterprise where he served until 2270 as primary transporter chief, engineering assistant, and relief helmsman. (Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Animated Series)

In 2267, Kyle was on duty in the transporter room when the Enterprise discovered the planet Gateway. He had to determine whether it was safe to send a landing party down to the surface with all the time currents emanating out from the planet, but was knocked out by a crazed Leonard McCoy as he was completing his computations. (TOS episode: "The City on the Edge of Forever", TOS - Crucible novel: The Fire and the Rose)

Later career[edit | edit source]

In late 2273, Kyle was once again serving aboard the refit USS Enterprise following the V'Ger incident, as bridge science officer, during such missions as the incident on planet Agena IV on stardate 7323.5. (TOS comic: "The Expansionist Syndrome")

John Kyle eventually transferred to the USS Reliant, where he served as communications officer until the ship was hijacked by Khan Noonien Singh. (TOS movie: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; WizKids module: Attack Wing).

In 2293, Kyle attended James T. Kirk's memorial service in the grounds of Starfleet Academy, along with many other former Enterprise crewmembers.(TOS - Crucible novel: The Fire and the Rose)
