Kirk's duty uniform top is a long-sleeved, division-colored tunic (gold), with a closing seam from the collar to the left shoulder. His rank insignia of Captain is displayed as three golden sleeve stripes, and an arrowhead assignment patch is on the left breast. The tunic has a black collar with a V-shaped bottom. He wears black boots that rises above the calf and zippered along the inside. He also wears black pants that ended in length midway down the shank of the boot and terminated in a one-inch-wide flare.
Capt. Kirk: "If you've heard our distress call, you would've know. We need help on the repairs of our ship's systems, and to find a way back home."
