James Tiberius Kirk, Enterprise's handknitted Meerkat Captain wears original series Command Gold. All Meerkat trekkies wear Federation emblems proudly on their chests and have their ranking stripes on their sleeves. Final photo shows one of my meerkats being introduced to William Shatner, who (as I'm sure you know) played Kirk.

Jim carries his old-school communicator, twiddling away with its little buttons. You'd have thought they'd be through with "tuning" by now?

Kirk is *Ready to ship*

His back legs and tail have been wired to allow him to stand freely at approximately 7" tall. (18cm)

Meerkat cards here:

Other meerkats photographed with Kirk are NOT included. They're just in the photos so you can have fun caption writing! Not suitable for small trekkies owing to wiring and tiny beads.

Niftyknits Meerkats are wrapped in tissue paper and come with a signed and dated Certificate of Authenticity.

You can find more MeerTrekkies meeting the original actors on my blog:
