“I’m James T. Kirk, Captain of the Enterprise!’’ he announces in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Bold, smart and king of the fistfights, Kirk has all the qualities of a great leader.
William Shatner turned to his experience as a Shakespearean actor when he was originally developing his lead character of Kirk in the 60′s series. Basing his leadership qualities on Horatio Hornblower and Alexander the Great, Shatner also wanted Kirk to have a humorous side but when the situation called for he ‘’would snap to and become the warrior.’’
A lot of examples come to mind that illustrate Kirk’s ability to get out of a tight spot, be it ‘’the prefix code’’ in Wrath of Khan or lying to Balok about Corbomite in “The Corbomite Maneuver” In these situations he is always controlled and focused, there is no mistake, Kirk is in charge!
