Star Trek Quiz: How Well Do You Know Captain Kirk?

Other than Birdseye, he’s the universe’s most iconic captain. Are you a Kirk expert?


Space, the final frontier. And within it, sci-fi TV's most famous ship: the USS Enterprise.

Typically, one question beyond all others defines Star Trek fandom. Who is the greatest Starfleet captain of all? For some, it is the dynamic baldy of The Next Generation, but purists and old-school fans will never be able to look past the captain on whose shoulders the Original Series was carried.

Captain James Kirk was a colossus of a character: a lover, a fighter, a thinker and a suspiciously impeccably tanned man considering the lack of natural sunlight on his ship. He was often an enigma, but also irresistibly watchable. He was a rule-breaker, a show-stealer and made hands-on captaining a hallmark of Enterprise captains forever.

But how well do you really know the man who commanded Spock, Uhura and Bones McCoy?
