Harry S.L. Kim was a human Starfleet officer who served aboard the Intrepid-class starship, USS Voyager, for her seven-year voyage in the Delta Quadrant as operations officer. Upon Voyager's return to the Alpha Quadrant, Kim took over the role of chief of security. (VOY episode: "Caretaker", VOY novel: Homecoming)

Kim was born in 2349 (VOY episode: "Eye of the Needle") in Monterey, South Carolina on Earth (VOY episode: "One", VOY novel: Pathways) to John Kim and Mary Kim. (VOY episode: "Author, Author")


Aboard Voyager

In late December 2373, Voyager unfortunately entered Borg space. However, the crew's fears were slightly assuaged when they discovered an area of space, dubbed the "Northwest Passage", which was devoid of Borg activity. After Voyager had been passed by a fleet of thirty Borg cubes, which had ignored the Federation starship, Harry determined that the fleet had been destroyed. Deciding to investigate, Captain Kathryn Janeway ordered Harry, Commander Chakotay and Lieutenant Tuvok to transport over the wreckage of a cube and investigate. Shortly after beaming over, Harry was attacked by a member of Species 8472 and wounded, his body infected by alien cells which were destroying his own. Beamed back to Voyager for emergency treatment by the Doctor and Kes, he was eventually cured after the Doctor developed a method of modifying Borg nanoprobes to attack the alien cells. (VOY episodes: "Scorpion", "Scorpion, Part II"; VOY - Infinity's Prism novel: Places of Exile)


Harry finally returned to Earth at the end of 2377 when Voyager traveled inside a Borg sphere through a transwarp conduit into the Alpha Quadrant.

When he returned to Earth in 2378, he was met by his parents and Libby Webber. He was also promoted to Lieutenant. Harry and Libby rekindled their old romantic relationship, but Harry was unaware that Libby was now working for Starfleet Intelligence as a deep cover agent.

Harry soon aided Admiral Kathryn Janeway in breaking Seven of Nine, Icheb, and the Doctor out of Starfleet holding cells. The Voyager crew then retook their ship and was able to stop the attempted Borg assimilation of Earth. Harry was repeatedly helped by receiving secret messages from "Peregrine" whom he never discovered was actually Libby. (VOY novels: Homecoming, The Farther Shore)

Return to Voyager

Harry still served aboard the Voyager in 2381 when the Borg Collective launched their invasion of the Federation. He was the bridge watch officer when Tom Paris received a prerecorded message from his father Admiral Owen Paris; Harry had to report that Starbase 234 had been destroyed by the Borg, killing Owen. (ST - Destiny novel: Gods of Night)

The Voyager was part of the allied task force that assembled at the Azure Nebula while the USS Aventine and USS Enterprise-E scouted subspace tunnels. Kim monitored the Bridge in the absence of Chakotay and Tom Paris, but called them back to the Bridge when one of the tunnels unexpectedly opened. He armed weapons and shields as over seven thousand Borg cubes poured from the tunnel, but they were quickly overrun. (ST - Destiny novel: Mere Mortals).

Harry has assumed the role of Chief of security and Second officer onboard Voyager.

During Voyager's maiden voyage, the ship was transported to the Delta Quadrant, by the Caretaker's Array. A Maquis ship also was transported.

They were transferred to an undergroud Ocampa medical facility by the Caretaker. They escape and try to find there way to the surface. They would be rescued by Voyager. (VOY: "Careaker")

In 2372 Voyager was accidentally duplicated by a spatial scission phenomenon. Each unaware of the others' existence, both tried to stabilize their rapidly draining antimatter supply with a series of proton bursts. One of the two ships, slightly phased apart from the other, fired protons first, heavily damaging the other in the process, the damage also caused the infant Naomi Wildman to die in her failed delivery operation. The Harry Kim from the damaged Voyager was killed after being sucked through a hull breach. When the undamaged ship was forced to self-destruct after being overrun by Vidiian forces, that ships' Harry Kim took the infant Naomi Wildman and traveled to the other ship. (VOY: "Deadlock")

At the end of the year, Voyager arrived at Borg Space. They found a passage that seemed devoid of any Borg. After a fleet of cubes had passed Voyager, ignoring it, Kim determined that the fleet had been destroyed. Upon investigating the debris he was attacked by Species 8472 and wounded.
