On This Day In 2228 Something Extraordinary Will Happen in Iowa

On March 22, 2228 – exactly 212 years from now – Captain James T. Kirk will be born in Riverside, Iowa.

Miller’s inspiration became official in May of 2009, when Riverside was identified as Kirk’s hometown in the Star Trek reboot movie. A day before the film was released, the entire town was invited to Iowa City to watch a special secret preview screening of the new film.
