The world was first introduced to the expansive universe of Star Trek through the 1966 premiere of the original television series. Breaking barriers for the three seasons it was on air, this series went on to spawn several other shows, hit movies, comic books, novels, magazines, theme park attractions, and museum exhibits. There are few other franchises with fans as devoted and eager to learn more about the lore unfolding across the stars.

And now we've consulted with those very stars to answer the question you've been asking: Which Star Trek character are you, based on your zodiac sign?

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Captain James T. Kirk

The illustrious Captain James T. Kirk was the first leader of the USS Enterprise to grace our screens. Somehow it just feels right that he's also representing the first sign of the zodiac. Aries, the sign of the Ram, are known for their courage, confidence, and passion. 

Captain Kirk is always the first to plunge headfirst into danger, and has quite the reputation for lusty pursuits. Like this fire sign, Kirk also has a propensity for being headstrong—for proof, just look at his Kobayashi Maru test.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Lieutenant Nyota Uhura

Uhura's arc in Star Trek: The Original Series made history. 

Uhura and her originating actress—the late Nichelle Nichols—and the earth sign of Taurus all operate with dignity, composure, and solidity. Uhura's sharp intelligence and keen sense of responsibility makes her a reliable crew member. Like the sign of the Bull, once Uhura sets her sights on something, she follows through to the very end. 

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Captain Kathryn Janeway

The air sign of Gemini is well-known for its dual nature. Those who fall under the sign of the Twin are full of contradictions—much like Star Trek: Voyager's Captain Kathryn Janeway.

Depending on what the situation calls for, Janeway can show a stern or soft side. Open to compromise and eager to exchange ideas when her crew is in danger, Janeway is a force to be reckoned with. Some may call her inconsistent, but "adaptable" is a cozier fit.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy

Life without a Cancer is like a starship without a medical officer. Both this sign of the Crab and the beloved Bones are known for their tenacity and hard work. But their dedication doesn't mean they're always level-headed. 

This water sign is known for being emotional, and Bones has quite the temper. Despite rapidly shifting moods, both the doctor and this sign have big hearts and unshakeable loyalty.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu

Hikaru Sulu has the heart of a Lion. And if you can't have Sulu himself at the helm of your ship, you'd obviously want a Leo in the pilot's seat! Sulu has been described as "a swashbuckler out of [the] 18th century,” and has bravery and a passion for life. 

Just as this fire sign is known for liking to put on a show, Sulu also has a flair for the dramatics. Just look at his talent for fencing and gymnastics!

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Lieutenant Commander Paul Stamets

Virgos, as an earth sign, have a deep connection to... well, the earth. While Star Trek: Discovery takes viewers careening through the stars, Lieutenant Commander Paul Stamets still finds a way to maintain a grounded, earthly connection. 

As the USS Discovery's Chief Engineer and resident astromycologist, he has a love of mushrooms and their medicinal properties. But his similarities to the sign of the Maiden go beyond a fascination with fungi—Stamets also displays the analytical mind, diligence, and anxious demeanor that Virgos often exhibit. Not to mention he can be just as critical of others...

Libra (September 23-October 22)

First Officer Michael Burnham

While it may seem incongruous to equate Libra—the sign of the Scales—with First Officer Michael Burnham, the first mutineer in Starfleet, it's actually quite a good fit. Burnham may have been sentenced to life in prison and credited for starting the war with the Klingons, but it was in the pursuit of protecting her crew. 

Libras are known as being fair-minded individuals, and as a human raised by Vulcans, Burnham is more in touch with her logical side than most. In the pursuit of trying to explore her emotions, Burnham is a highly social crew member, much like this air sign tends to be.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Seven of Nine

Scorpios tend to get a pretty bad rap, and hey, so do Borgs. 

After being liberated by Captain Janeway, former Borg drone Seven of Nine became the astrometric expert aboard the USS Voyager. Her complicated history and detachment from social norms propels her to pursue the truth—an ideal which is deeply important to this sign of the Scorpion. 

Like the dangerous animal this water sign is symbolized by, Seven of Nine can find herself stuck in a cycle of harsh independence and keeping others at an arms-length, whether intentionally or not.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Lieutenant Worf

Sagittarius is the sign of the Archer, and Worf is a member of the Klingon species, a warrior race. But Worf is not what many people expect a Klingon to be, having been raised to be gentle and compassionate within the Federation. 

As a fire sign, a Sagittarius may have a bit of an edgy spark always burning just beneath the surface, much like the aggression Worf has inherited and kept under wraps. Worf may not be the most diplomatic or agreeable individual, but he is an adventurer through and through, ready to take on all that the universe has to offer.

Capricorn (December 23-January 19)

Captain Jean-Luc Picard

In Star Trek: The Next Generation, the USS Enterprise has Captain Picard calling the shots.

Like the earth sign of Capricorn, Picard is an individual of great self-discipline. He takes his role as leader very seriously. He is highly intellectual, but like the sign of the Sea Goat, this can sometimes come off to others as being a know-it-all. 

Still, Picard recognizes that respecting his crew and their opinions is important, which is what makes him such a remarkable captain.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Lieutenant Commander Spock

Those born under the sign of Aquarius are often considered aloof and emotionally distant. Half-Vulcan Lieutenant Commander Spock can sometimes feel like the poster child for this sentiment. 

However, while Spock has a cool exterior, he has the beating, compassionate heart of a humanitarian (among other species). While he can seem immovable in certain conflicts, he is there to support his risk-taking friends when it comes down to the wire.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge

Pisces, the sign of the Fish, is one of the most sensitive and intuitive signs in the wheel of the zodiac. 

Though he was born blind, Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge has been fitted with VISOR technology that allows him to visualize the electromagnetic spectrum—and see more than most. He is quiet and reserved, as many of this water sign are. He indulges more in jokes, games, and creative pursuits than some others do, which falls in line with the Pisces tendency to try and escape reality.
