Captain Kirk's Evolution

Captain Kirk is one of the most popular characters in pop-culture and Science Fiction. Over the years his character has evolved and even redesigned. Hayley Stoddart and Ken Tripp explore the good Captain from TOS to the movies to the Kelvin Timeline.

This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Hayley Stoddart take a deep dive into what defines Captain Kirk. Is he really a cocky ladies-man rule breaking warrior or are these descriptions a big oversimplification? We ask you to boldly listen and decide for yourself!
