For additional meanings of "Kelvin", please see Kelvin (disambiguation).

USS Kelvin (NCC-0514) was a Federation Kelvin-class starship in the early 23rd century commanded by Captain Richard Robau. It's First Officer in 2233 was Lieutenant Commander George Kirk, soon-to-be father of famous starfleet captain James T. Kirk. In 2245, it was destroyed over Donatu V by Klingons.

The Soyuz-class starship USS Kelvin was named after the Kelvin.

Alternate realityEdit

On stardate 2233.04, the Kelvin was on a mission near the Federation-Klingon border when it encountered a black hole created in 2387 by the detonation of red matter, subsequently creating an alternate reality. The Narada emerged from the black hole and destroyed the Kelvin. Nearly 800 crewmembers survived the attack, including Wionna Kirk and her newborn son, Jim, by escaping via shuttlecraft.

Sometime after the Kelvin's destruction, Christopher Pike wrote a dissertation on the Kelvin, and the actions of its commanding officer at the time of its destruction, George Kirk. Pike later made reference to this dissertation and his knowledge of George Kirk to Kirk's son, daring him to do better than his father and enlist in Starfleet.
