Captain Kirk, facing retirement and the end of his adventurous career, accepts the offer of a mysterious woman to undertake a voyage to an uncharted planet, where a serious threat to the fragile peace between the Federation and the Klingons may be brewing. There he also finds a nearly irresistible temptation -- a chance to recapture his faded youth.

    " If it can be said that William Shatner, the man who played Captain James T. Kirk, has written a Mary Sue, this is a Mary Sue. It's Kirk's ultimate fantasy about his final days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benjamin Wright | 12/31/2013

    " I gave this five stars simply because I listened to it on audio (needed something to listen to while driving) and it was read by William Shatner. It's hilarious. He does impressions of castmembers from TOS and TNG, DS9, Voyager... Oy vey. Plotwise, the story is like the ultimate Star Trek fanfic with Kirk as the ultimate Mary Sue. But Shatner's impression of Picard is... amsuing, to say the least. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassa | 11/26/2013

    " I'm a sucker for Shatner's writing style, even if this book was clearly very self-serving in its treatment of Kirk's character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 11/25/2013

    " Surprisingly good. Even more reason to like Shatner "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Bello | 11/24/2013

    " Extremely good read with a great twist. It should be a movie, if you ask me. "

    " I'm not really into graphic novels. My son liked it and asked if I wanted to read it. So as a Star Trek fan I decided I'd look at it. The graphic novel is based on Shatner's 300 page book. I'm sure the book must be better than the graphic novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 11/15/2013

    " This is my next audio, commute time entertainment book. Its read by the author. Could prove interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bev Hankins | 12/29/2012

    " I'm just not into these Shatner books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony | 7/4/2012

    " Pretty darn good Kirk trilogy. I doubt Shatner wrote it though. It's "by" Shatner, but then 2 other authors are labelled inside the book (not on the cover). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen | 7/11/2009

    " Remember this one fondly. Don't have it any more but would love to find a kindle copy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 4/22/2009

    " I was completely surprised how much I enjoyed this book, particularly the plot. However, it requires good deal of selective blindness to tolerate Shatner's ginormous ego. Kirk is an expert in Klingon martial arts? Seriously?... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benjamin Plume | 5/30/2008

    " My only gripe is how it fits into the ST universe. This series just seems to defy everything that's already out there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 4/24/2008

    " A fun story, but the sentence fragments and tiny paragraphs made it lurch uncomfortably to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darrell | 9/30/2007

    " Shatnerverse that's all I have to say. Kirk,Kirk, and more Kirk. "

    " I took this book to Harbin with me, and it embarrassed Kevin that I was reading it. "
