I though this is was a joke when I found out there is in real life Captain James A. Kirk. I often wonder how he got through the US Navy with that kind of famous name. The US Navy launched their New Zumwalt class DDG, the USS Zumwalt at Bath Iron Works in Maine. So now we will be hearing all the US Navy & Star Trek jokes off of this one.  I often wonder who will be Mr Scott in the Engineering Dept of the USS Zumwalt.  I wonder who will be Mr Sulu at the helm. It will be pretty interesting on the day she’s commissioned, that the cast of Star Trek meets the real life Captain James A Kirk at the ships commissioning ceremony.
