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.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

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.
