Kirk's Women

Captain Kirk – Lothario of the spaceways?

Janice Rand

Is Captain Kirk’s reputation as a Lothario of the spaceways deserved? Did he really bed hundreds of lovelies (both alien and human) in just three seasons of Star Trek? Or was he, more often than not, putting his snogging skills in the service of the real lady in his life, the USS Enterprise, and using his sexual charms to protect his crew? Was he not, in fairness, as much a victim of various unhinged, vengeful and obsessed females as a sexual predator? And wasn’t it, sometimes, the real thing?

On an attempt to answer some of these questions, we present 10 random examples of Kirk’s women (plus honarary Kirk’s woman Yeoman Janice Rand. Kirk never laid a finger on this valued member of his staff; well, except when he was split into Good Kirk and Bad Kirk and Bad Kirk just couldn’t resist…)

Unnamed blonde lab technician
Where No Man Has Gone Before
Kirk nearly married her apparently, or so this episode informs us. Could she be one and the same as Dr Carol Marcus, who turns up decades later in The Wrath of Khan? Well, she’s blonde, she’s a scientist and she presents Admiral Kirk with a fully-grown son…

Areel Shaw
Court Martial
Old flames turning up is always bad news – would you want one of yours appearing as prosecuting attorney in your own court case?

Lenore Karidian
The Conscience of the King
Kirk gives her a nice tour of his ship and snogs her – but all as a way of finding out if her dad is genocidal war criminal Kodos the Executioner. She turns out to be as certifiable as her old man anyway.

Helen Noel
Dagger of the Mind
Kirk’s embrassment at being assigned this torpedo-breasted psychiatrist for a landing party mission is undeniable, much to Spock’s evident bemusement. Something had clearly happened at the Science Department Christmas party…

Miramanee
The Paradise Syndrome
Kirk gets his memory wiped and goes native, where the lovely Miramanee plays Pocahontas to his ‘Kirok’ in this cod-Native American idyll… until his real life intrudes once more. Kind of like a holiday romance, but much sadder.

Shahna

The Gamesters of Triskelion
There’s something about drill thrall Shahna – the green hair, the way she fills her tinfoil bikini, her innocent desire to find out what kissing is. Shame Kirk has to sock her in the jaw in order to escape…

Deela
Wink of an Eye
The notorious censor-baiting shot of Kirk sitting on her bed pulling his boots on says it all. But it was all for the good of the ship, right?

Rayna Kapec
Requiem for Methuselah
Not for the first time, Kirk’s libidinous attentions turn to an android babe and fry her circuits. He really seemed to like this one though. Spock, sensing that this is not healthy, erases Kirk’s memories of her.

Janet Lester
Turnabout Intruder
The ex from hell. Blames Kirk for her own lack of success, believing that she should have been a starship captain. In every man’s nightmare, she takes over his body – turning the Enterprise’s captain into a bitchy, mincing harridan who can’t stop filing his nails. Nutter.

Edith Keeler
The City on the Edge of Forever
This time it’s true love – although being stuck on 1930s Earth and bumping into the young Joan Collins must have caught Kirk off guard a bit. Tragically, he has to let Edith die to preserve the timelines of Earth history. Goodie-goodies are not always good news, it seems.
