One of few characters in TOS who is 100% human, Kirk was born on Earth in 2233. Even his middle name ‘Tiberius’ commanded greatness. Kirk was the first Starfleet captain ever to stand trial and his wife Miramanee died while carrying his baby. Kirk was a true American folk hero and his all time idol was Abraham Lincoln.
Half human, half Vulcan, Spock was born to a physicist father and a teacher mother in 2230 in Shirkahr, Vulcan. Spock went on to become science officer on board the U.S.S. Enterprise. He later became involved in an arranged marriage, but his bride-to-be, T'Pring, left him at the altar. Spock had a resting pulse rate of 242 bpm.
Another fellow human, Dr ‘Bones’ McCoy is perhaps best known for his infamous line “Damn it Jim, I’m a doctor, not a… (moon shuttle conductor, bricklayer, psychiatrist, escalator, engineer” etc. etc.)
Despite common myth, the words “beam me up, Scotty” were never uttered on any of The Original Series shows. Although mortal Scotty lost his heart to Lt. Mira Romaine, his most intimate relationship was always with the U.S.S. Enterprise.
