Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

William Shatner played Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek: The Original Series. He has also starred in 7 Star Trek feature films, co-wrote star trek 5 the final frontier with Gene Roddenberry, Harve Bennett & David Loughery as well as 10 Star Trek novels with Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, originally edited by Margaret Clark

The Shatner/Reeves-Stevens novels primarily feature the further adventures of a resurrected Captain James T. Kirk in the 24th century, post-Star Trek Generations. They are often epic in scale, and filled with franchise-wide crossovers. Because there was concern as to confusion to the casual viewer/reader, references to Kirk still being alive in other Star Trek novels and series are not often made outside of these work, leading fans to think of it as an alternate series from the rest of Star Trek continuity. Since there has never been an explicit statement of such, however, this remains an assumption made by some readers only.

The most recent novel moved the setting to that of a prequel, in the era of Kirk's days at Starfleet Academy. Because this might contradict some of what may be established in the forthcoming prequel movie the book included the following disclaimer:

The plot, story lines, and historical narrative presented in Star Trek Academy: Collision Course constitute an imaginative work deriving solely from the author's unique personal vision.


In 1968, William Shatner was transported aboard the USS Enterprise for a short period. (DS9 - Star Trek: The New Voyages short story: "Visit to a Weird Planet Revisited")
