Aurelan Kirk was a female Human civilian in the 23rd century. She was married to George Samuel Kirk and they had three sons, including Peter. Her brother-in-law was Captain James T. Kirk.

In 2265, she saw her brother-in-law off when he began a five-year mission of exploration in command of the USS Enterprise. She was with her husband and their three sons. (TOS: "What Are Little Girls Made Of?")

In 2267, she was residing at the Deneva colony with George and Peter when travelers from Ingraham B brought flying parasites that quickly infested the colony. Aurelan was attacked and infiltrated prior to Kirk's visit. Kirk discovered her in her home, extremely distraught.

Under heavy sedation in the Enterprise's sickbay, she became coherent enough to provide valuable information about the parasites, but the creature within her opposed this effort, delivering increasing amounts of pain. Eventually, unable to withstand the strain, she died. (TOS: "Operation -- Annihilate!")

Aurelan Kirk was portrayed by Joan Swift.
The comic book Bloodline gives her full name as Aurelan Jira Kirk.
Her alternate reality counterpart (β), husband (β), and son (β) all survive the attack in IDW's Star Trek: Ongoing version of the story.
