T'Kir was a Romulan officer. She was the daughter of Commander T'Cel, and served as a Subcommander aboard her mother's Bird-of-Prey, the Phoenix.


In Rihannsu, the name "T'Kir" means daughter of the house of Kir, or perhaps - given Leonard McCoy's reaction to the name - daughter of the house of Kirk. In other words, it is possible that T'Kir was the half-human child of T'Cel and James T. Kirk, who had enjoyed a brief liason in 2257, while drifting an escape pod after the destruction of the USS Farragut.

T'Kir in 2289

In 2289, T'Cel and her ship disappeared to face an alien threat on the far side of the Galaxy, and T'Kir was taken back to the Federation by Captain Kirk. (TOS comic: "Debt of Honor")

By 2308, she had risen to command the RIS Phoenix, and rescued Jamie Finney from Klingon captivity after the betrayal and death of Kor.

By the 2370s, she held the rank of Fleet Captain, and considered Jean-Luc Picard to be an old friend. In 2370, she came aboard the USS Enterprise-D to support Finney's quest to regain the honour of Kor's house. (TNG comic: "Cry Vengeance")

Kor's death in 2306 is, of course, contradicted by his later appearance in several episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, while the human-hybrid Klingons' genetic stigma is now shown as being removed through genetic engineering in the 2290s.
