William Shatner has once again brought his unique blend of talents as actor, writer, director, and producer to continue the saga of Jim Kirk’s remarkable second life, as an insidious menace from his past threatens a new generation of heroes.

Retired and in a happy relationship, Kirk believes his adventuring days are over. But as he returns to Earth for the first time since his apparent “death” upon the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-B, events elsewhere in the galaxy set in motion a mystery that may provide Kirk with his greatest challenge yet.

The Enterprise-E, under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, is exploring an unstable region of space on a mission of vital concern to Starfleet when they discover the last thing they ever expected to find: a battle-scarred vessel that is instantly recognizable to every member of Picard’s crew. Five years after being presumed lost, the Starship Voyager has come home!

The commander of Voyager, Tom Paris, explains that Captain Kathryn Janeway and half the original crew is dead, but if that is true, who is the mysterious woman who has kidnapped Kirk back on Earth, demanding that he assist her against a threat to the entire Federation? All is not as it seems, and soon Kirk is forced to confront the consequences of actions taken thirty years before, as well as his own inner doubts.

An unforgettable saga peopled by old friends and ancient enemies, Star Trek: Spectre propels Kirk on a journey of self-discovery every bit as harrowing as the cataclysmic new adventure that awaits him.

  • “Bestowed upon the reader are Kirk’s heroics and love life, Spock and McCoy’s acerbic bantering, and a crossover among three different casts. Shatner does his usual adequate job, offering a melodious reading.”

    " I have read a few of the Shatner Star Trek novels, and I love the plot of this one ... but the execution could have been better. Not the best one he has done, but a decent set up for a real battle with the Mirror Universe. "

    " the mirror Universe is hardly an overdone trek concept, and I can only admire the level of detail that went into the research for the characterisations. It's quite a thrilling read, although everything is Kirk, Kirk, Kirk. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikael Kuoppala | 10/18/2011

    " A bit too heavily action packed and less substantial, this Trek book by Shatner and Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens is still a joy to read due to its wonderfully ambitious plotting. "
