Crowner to decide whether or not to rename The Kirk.


  • Trope is being potholed to refer to the character in sentences where the context does not fit the trope.
  • Character is known for many things besides being an example of the trope.


  • It has hundreds of wicks and inbound links
  • Trope name matches with the names for The McCoy and The Spock; if we renamed The Kirk we would have to rename those two tropes as well.
