In 2233, the Kelvin was under the command of Captain Richard Robau, while his first officer was Lieutenant Commander George Kirk.
On stardate 2233.04 in the alternate reality, the Federation starship USS Kelvin was attacked by the Romulan mining vessel Narada, 75,000 kilometers from the Federation-Klingon border.
The attack led to a battle during which Captain Robau was murdered, leaving George Kirk in command. The engagement culminated in the Kelvin being evacuated by its crew – comprised of eight hundred people, including Winona Kirk and her newborn son, but with the notable exception of George Kirk, in addition to several other crewmembers who were killed during the Narada’s attack – and the eventual destruction of the vessel.
