Captain Kirk was a fearless and emotionally driven leader. Counterbalanced by the guidance of his logical Vulcan first Officer, Spock (played by Leonard Nimoy), Kirk fearlessly led his ship and crew on countless missions in the final frontier.
"Space...the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Spaceship Enterprise. It's five year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations- to boldly go where no man has gone before." These words, first heard September 8, 1966, are now beloved by fans around the world. Captain Kirk and his crew continue to uphold Gene Roddenberry;s vision of the future, and what started out as a five year mission has continued to entertain and inspire over 35 years later.
