He's a hero and he's great at his job, but "Star Trek's" Captain Kirk did abandon his son. That's one of the conclusions of author and TV writer David A. Goodman. He wrote a first-of-its-kind book for a "Star Trek" character that imagines new details about the life of the man who captained the starship Enterprise. Goodman's fan fiction takes one-line references from episodes of the iconic TV and movie franchise and builds entire storylines from them. The author paints Kirk as a driven, sometimes insecure, absent father--a man who "left his son, for his job," yet was destined to be a Starfleet hero. "The Autobiography of James T. Kirk – The Story of Starfleet’s Greatest Captain," will be published by Titan Books on Tuesday. That's 49 years to the day after "Star Trek" premiered on television in 1966.
