After graduating from Starfleet Academy in 2370, he was assigned to Voyager in 2371, which was subsequently stranded in the Delta Quadrant. He was perhaps the crew member most eager to get home. In 2372, (episode "Deadlock") the entire ship was duplicated in a phenomenon that duplicated matter but not antimatter. Eventually the original Janeway destroyed the ship to prevent the Vidiians from taking their organs, but the original Ensign Kim and the baby Naomi Wildman from the original ship were sent over to the duplicate Voyager to replace their dead duplicates. Kim was troubled by this for a while. The official logo of Starfleet Academy, circa 2370. ...

In an alternate timeline, Chakotay and Kim piloted the Delta Flyer ahead of Voyager in an experimental method of travel, known as Quantum Slipstream, intended to get Voyager home sooner. However, Kim transmitted incorrect phase corrections to Voyager which ultimately caused it to crash land on an icy planet just short of the Alpha Quadrant. Kim and Chakotay studied the mistake for fifteen years, then sent a message back in time using a Borg temporal transceiver that contained phase corrections that would completely disperse the slipstream but keep Voyager and the Delta Flyer intact, but in the Delta Quadrant. Chakotay (born 2326) is a character in the fictional Star Trek universe, played by Robert Beltran, and was the second-in-command of the USS Voyager, to Kathryn Janeway in the science fiction television series Star Trek: Voyager. ...

Kim was an ensign through all seven seasons of Voyager, but in an alternate future shown in the final episode "Endgame", he was captain of the USS Rhode Island in 2404. However, Ensign Kim was given the status of acting captain in the episode entited "Nightingale"', while trying to deliver what was thought to be medical supplies to a planet. Captain is both a nautical term and a rank in various uniformed organizations. ... Three ships of the United States Navy have been named USS Rhode Island in honor of the 13th state. ...


Due to the fact Harry Kim is always nominated for dangerous away missions, he is very much the "Redshirt" character on VOY. However, unlike the famous characters of the original series of Star Trek, he doesn't actually die in the process. The character, portrayed as young and inexperienced, has on many occasions shown this side of himself, leading to many comedic moments, such as his awkwardly romantic feelings towards Seven of Nine. A redshirt is a stock character, used frequently in science fiction but also other genres, whose sole purpose is to violently die soon after being introduced. ...

Personality

Harry Kim was a fresh graduate of the Starfleet academy at the beginning of the voyage, and was often portrayed as naive in the early episodes. Harry is arguably Voyager''s one example of the "best and brightest" Utopian theme of individuals more commonly associated with the Next Generation series, and as such provides a rather stark contrast to the somewhat darker, more ambiguous natures of Captain Janeway, Tuvok, and B'Elanna Torres.


However, many episodes show that Harry as very driven by duty and loyalty. Alternative futures for him included is being a starfleet captain (of the Rhode Island in "Endgame"), or the mastermind behind a plot to save Voyager from a mistake he made in the past (during Timeless). The episodes make it clear that Harry can succeed no matter what path he takes in life. Voyager Endgame is the title of the final episode in the Star Trek spin off series, Star Trek: Voyager. ... Timeless was the 100th episode of Star Trek: Voyager. ...


Indeed, Harry is shown to be an undying loyalist to Starfleet in the episode "Worst Case Scenario". A holographic simulation of a Maquis mutiny paints him as the one bridge officer who remains loyal to Captain Kathryn Janeway, even after phaser fire has made the odds impossible. He was willing to die or be captive rather than betray his ideals. Worst Case Scenario is a reality show aired on TBS in 2002. ... Janeway redirects here. ...


As ops officer, Harry was shown to be scientifically gifted, particularly in his ability to improvise during tense situations. He was generally cheerful and optimistic, although on the rare occasions when his temper surfaced, it could be accompanied by a menacing subtext which would seem unimaginable in him at first glance. He was at times held back by an implacable naivete and fairly extreme childlike tendencies, but these characteristics generally did not interfere with his work.


Backstory

In the book authored by Co-Creator Jeri Taylor, "Pathways", Harry's birthplace is contradicted and is placed as Monterey, Ca.
