Ok, so it is not THAT Kirk. Captain James Kirk is the prospective commanding officer of USS Zumwalt, the Navy’s now fancy pants destroyer being built at Bath Iron Works. 

According to Yahoo News, Kirk is from Bethesda, Maryland and was commissioned at the U.S. Naval Academy in 1990.  I am betting he has heard more than his share of of ‘Star Trek’ jokes.

As for the new USS Zumwalt destroyer is the Navy’s new class of destroyer and from what I was reading it shows up on radar as a fishing vessel. That is kind of cool.
