James T. Kirk, founder of the Kirk cabal

The Kirk Cabal was a loosely-organized group of Federation Starfleet officers dedicated to tracking and opposing the activities of the shadow organization within Starfleet known as Section 31.


The group was founded in 2269 when Federation Starfleet Captain James T. Kirk of the starship USS Enterprise uncovered the existence of Section 31 following the Lantaru sector disaster.

In 2375, the Kirk Cabal's numbers were very small. Amongst its members were Elias Vaughn, Julian Bashir, and John Taggart. In 2377 on stardate 54973.4, Typhuss James Halliwell joined the Kirk Cabal.

(Much like Section 31, Kirk's own cabal against them was a secret from Starfleet and the Federation at large, and they too used many of the same methods of obfuscation and secrecy as their enemies to avoid their resistance to the activities of Section 31 becoming public, and like Section 31 their numbers increased only by means of invitation.)

With the public exposure and subsequent end of Section 31 in the early 25th century, it is likely that the Kirk Cabal was also disbanded.
