Space ladies: the final frontier.

Star Trek's Captain James T. Kirk, played by William Shatner, was a cosmic Casanova. Every week on the show that brought us the voyages of the starship Enterprise, as brainy plotlines unfolded, Captain Kirk took a break from scientific discovery and diplomacy to pursue his own five-year mission of romance. While exploring strange new worlds, Kirk sought out new life while fulfilling his carnal desires, a mission that likely wasn’t sanctioned by Star Fleet (unless they too were total horndogs).

In the 79 episodes of the original series, Captain James T. Kirk wines and dines a lot of women, and definitely goes where no man has gone before. These are the girlfriends, lovers, and interstellar one night stands who captured Kirk's heart (however briefly) and made the biggest impact on the audience. 

Shahna The Shimmery

When Captain Kirk and his crew members are abducted into slavery and forced to fight as gladiators for the amusement of three disembodied beings known as the Providers in "The Gamesters of Triskelion" audiences got a taste of a gal who captivated fanboys across the galaxy. In his time as a forced gladiator, Kirk meets the beautiful, electronically collared Shahna and while they don’t necessarily develop the most emotionally resonant relationship, they do smooch and after Kirk defeats the Providers she tries to follow him back to the Enterprise.

By season 2 Kirk was used to clingy alien babes so he gave her the ol’ “you must learn to live with your newfound freedom” line before beaming outta there. Played by Angelique Pettyjohn, Shahna only appeared in one episode but she was wildly popular at conventions thanks to her racy poster.
