Even centuries later, the final decades of the twentieth century are still regarded as one of the darkest and most perilous chapters in the history of humanity Now, as an ancient and forbidden technology tempts mankind once more, Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise™ must probe deep into the secrets of the past, to discover the true origins of the dreaded Eugenics Wars -- and of perhaps the greatest foe he has ever faced.

1974 A.D. An international consortium of the world's top scientists have conspired to create the Chrysalis Project, a top-secret experiment in human genetic engineering. The project's goal is the creation of a new super-race to take command of the entire planet.

Gary Seven, an undercover operative for an advanced alien species, is alarmed by the project's objectives; he knows too well the apocalyptic consequences of genetic manipulation. But he may already be too late. One generation of super-humans has already been conceived. Seven watches as the children of Chrysalis-in particular, a brilliant youth named Khan Noonien Singh -- grow to adulthood. Can Khan's dark destiny be averted -- or is Earth doomed to fight Singh a global battle for supremacy?

The Eugenics Wars: Volume One is a fast-paced thriller that explores the rise of the conqueror known as Khan. Download and start listening now!

    " I had this on the shelf for a while and just got around to reading it. I enjoyed it. It had a LOT of references to the original Star Trek and helped explain the Eugenics Wars which have often appeared in the different series. I'm anxious to read volume two. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 2/9/2014

    " Nice weaving of the original Star Trek mythos of Khan and Gary 7 with real historical events. I think it worked well as an abridgment and enjoyed the "authentic" Star Trek sound effects "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Astrila | 1/13/2014

    " Fun read for Khan fans. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trae | 12/31/2013

    " Total guilty pleasure...sadly, merely an adequately written novel. A plot 1000 miles wide and 1 inch deep. I think that a Fathead wall decal of Mr. Spock might have more depth of character than those in his writing...I can't believe I'm reading the 2nd novel now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bret Jones | 12/6/2013

    " A good Star Trek story revealing the first part of Khan Noonien Singh's history. Greg Cox used familiar characters and a solid knowledge of history to twist a wonderful tale about one of the best known characters from the Star Trek universe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karla (Mossy Love Grotto) | 12/4/2013

    " 3.5 stars - I read this one long ago and only remember that it was a bit slow-going in spots, but thought it was cool that the author worked the Union Carbide disaster into the plot. Will have to re-read this one again before I finish up the trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 12/3/2013

    " So far, it's not feeling like a Star Trek book. It's good, but the majority of the action so far takes place in 1974. Also, there are a ton of movie and TV show references (Stepford Wives, The Cat From Outer Space, etc) which are interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karl Schaeffer | 11/2/2013

    " This is a good book. Star Trek always alluded to the eugenics wars as happening before the formation of the federation. This book is a well put together scenario of present day thru the eugenics war into the federation. Very plausible. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Don Incognito | 10/31/2013

    " This novel is interesting but poorly written. Also loaded with [seven-letter vulgar word starting with f, that denotes a pompous fan showing off his/her knowledge of series continuity] and sprinkled with the author's political beliefs. Not recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gunner | 10/30/2013

    " Kahn was Indian? That's one pale-ass Indian guy. Oh, and the book was funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick Nichol | 10/27/2013

    " This is an excellent series that sets up a wonderful backstory surrounding Khan's rise to power. It's very cool that Cox melds many characters from actual history with Trek luminaries. Way cool! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benjamin Plume | 9/5/2013

    " This series spans the Trek universe in an impressive way, bringing in elements of the real world that never would've been suspected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clay Davis | 8/14/2013

    " Really good. It helped to fill in blanks in Khan's past. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh | 1/12/2013

    " very good books if you're a star trek fan. khan was always my favorite villain from the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 rivka | 12/9/2012

    " Interesting attempt to make the ST history fit our timeline. But not interesting enough to get me to read books 2 or 3. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dustin | 9/20/2012

    " One of my favorite tie-in novels. It gives the back story of Star Trek's greatest antagonists and offers a look at one of the events that shaped the Star Trek universe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 1/20/2012

    " It's a fun house, it really is! Star Trek and "World History" from 1974 to 1989 woven together in a very interesting and enjoyable way. And I think Cox even manages to put Khan on Fantasy Island in a convincing way in part 2... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 6/16/2011

    " This book was a lot of fun. Everything Star Trek is used or mentioned in this book. Well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Leib | 4/2/2011

    " Highly ingenius way of tying up one of the more interesting an exciting era of the original Star Trek. Cox makes Khan come alive, and you can even hear Ricardo Montalban's voice coming from the pages. A must for any original series fan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 2/20/2011

    " I enjoyed this one. It really expands the background of Khan fully. Or at least it starts to. There wasn't much Star Trek in this book. It's set starting in 1974 when Khan is 4 years old and ends just as he enters his adulthood with his ambition toward world dominance begins. "
