Akira Hirota was a 23rd century Human male. By the late 2250s, Hirota was a command division commander serving in Starfleet, assigned as first officer aboard the USS Constitution.

During his service aboard the Constitution, Hirota became involved with Chief Engineer Anita Jankowski, which they tried to keep secret, but all of the senior staff knew of. In 2257, he joined the senior staff in the ship's lounge as they welcomed the new helmsman, Lieutenant James T. Kirk, aboard. Shortly after, she witnessed an incident between Kirk and Chief of Security Jack Gaynor involving a tray of food, and was forced to stop Gaynor from storming out of the rec room and displaying proper respect for Kirk.

Hirota was later on duty on the bridge during the Constitution's encounter with a Klingon D7-class battle cruiser near the Klingon Neutral Zone and then when the Constitution arrived in orbit of Sordinia IV to investigate six alien satellites. After learning from Prime Vodis Vodanis that his people were in the grip of panic, Hirota suggested that both he and Captain Augenthaler beam down to help Vodanis smooth his people's worries. Shortly after arriving in the capital city, it came under attack by the satellites, and Hirota and Augenthaler were cut off from the Constitution as it battled the satellites in orbit.

After the Constitution had managed to take down the satellites, contact was re-established and Hirota learned from Augenthaler that Jankowski had died during a boarding mission aboard one of the satellites. (TOS - My Brother's Keeper novel: Constitution)

Hirota remained aboard the Constitution for some time after Lieutenant Kirk had departed from the ship. (TOS - My Brother's Keeper novel: Enterprise)
