- This page details a counterpart of Winona Kirk in the Kelvin timeline; for the Winona Kirk in the primary universe see Winona Kirk.
Winona Kirk (born Winona Davis) was a human female and the wife of George Samuel Kirk, Sr., and the mother of George Samuel Kirk, Jr. and James T. Kirk. She was born circa 2210 and was of Sioux descent. (TOS novels: Enterprise: The First Adventure, Final Frontier, Best Destiny; TOS comic: "Who's Who in Star Trek, Issue 1")
She met George Samuel Kirk in the late 2220s and the two married at the age of nineteen. Married life was a big adventure for the young couple, but once Winona became pregnant they looked for a place to raise their family. They bought a farm in the small town of Riverside, Iowa, though most of the farming would be done under lease by their Amish neighbors. Most household duties fell to Winona, as George still served in Starfleet as a security officer and was away from Earth for long periods. (TOS novels: Final Frontier and Best Destiny)
Despite this the Kirks still managed to start a family with George Samuel Kirk, Jr., their elder son, being born 12 August 2230. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure; TOS novel: Enterprise: The First Adventure)
By early 2233, Winona was pregnant with her second child, and served aboard the USS Kelvin. When the ship encountered the Narada, starting an alternate reality, the younger son was born. George, Sr. worked with Winona to come up with a name for the baby, settling on James Tiberius Kirk. George's last words to his wife (as he suicide rammed the crippled Kelvin into the Narada) were "I love you." (TOS movie: Star Trek; ST website: StarTrek.com)
Winona eventually moved her children and herself in with her brother, Frank. She was offworld when a young James stole George, Sr.'s car from Frank and ran it off a cliff, however she was home when the Iowa police brought James home from the incident. Winona asked her youngest son to tolerate Frank's temper. (TOS comic: "Operation: Annihilate, Part 1")
Circa 2258, George, Jr. kept a hologram of his parents at his home on Deneva. (TOS comics: "Operation: Annihilate, Part 1", "Operation: Annihilate!, Part 2") In early 2263, Jim Kirk promised Leonard McCoy he'd call her on his birthday. (TOS movie: Star Trek Beyond)
