"Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you. Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship because while you're there, you can make a difference." – James T. Kirk, 2371
The Autobiography of James T. Kirk chronicles the greatest Starfleet captain's life (22332371), in his own words. From his birth on the USS Kelvin, his youth spent on Tarsus IV, his time in the Starfleet Academy, his meteoric rise through the ranks of Starfleet, and his illustrious career at the helm of the Enterprise, this in-world memoir uncovers Captain Kirk in a way Star Trek fans have never seen.
Kirk's singular voice rings throughout the text, giving insight into his convictions, his bravery, and his commitment to the life – in all forms – throughout this Galaxy and beyond. Excerpts from his personal correspondence, captain's logs, and more give Kirk's personal narrative further depth.
