When William Shatner was cast in the lead of Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry decided to rename his captain character from Robert April. In the book Star Trek: The Inside Story the names considered were January, Drake, Flagg, Thorpe, Christopher, Hannibal, Richard, Raintree, Boone, Patrick, Hamilton, Hudson, Timber, Neville, North, Winter, and Kirk.
