WILLIAM SHATNER READS CAPTAIN KIRK'S ULTIMATE ADVENTURE!

During James T. Kirk's heroic five-year mission as captain of the Starship Enterprise™, a mysterious alien threat called "The Totality" commenced its stealthy invasion intending to conquer the Milky Way galaxy as it had conquered the Andromeda. Now the time for secrecy has passed, and a war unlike any other has begun -- one that threatens to destroy the Federation, first by bringing warp travel to an end, and then by absorbing all living matter into an unknown realm.

Twice before, Captain Kirk has encountered the Totality. Both times it took the beguiling form of Norinda, an irresistible alien who becomes the woman each person she meets most desperately desires. In his first encounter, Kirk almost lost the Enterprise. In his second encounter, he almost lost his child, and watched in horror as the Totality absorbed Spock in its monstrous dimensional tendrils. But now, Kirk faces an even more devastating personal challenge. The battle lines have been drawn, and he and his friend Captain Jean-Luc Picard are on opposite sides.

After the events of Star Trek® Nemesis, on the leading edge of Star Trek's future history, Captain's Glory depicts a Federation attacked from within, on the brink of collapse, with Earth's own solar system an armed and isolated camp. Reunited with Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy and Chief Engineer Scott, Kirk must join forces with Admiral Kathryn Janeway and the Holographic Doctor from the Starship Voyager™ in order to save Spock and expose the true nature of the Totality.

    " the most dangerous enemies are those we can't predict, to succeed in the face of logic, we are life but not as they know it, the totality "

    " decent Trek book. Shatner gets most of the characters we know and love in there. You could read the book in less than half a day if you wanted to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Yelverton | 8/25/2012

    " Whereas I love anything to do with Captain Kirk, you really needed to be reading the entire book series to understand this one... and I wasn't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikael Kuoppala | 9/5/2011

    " As good as the team's earlier "Captain's Blood," "Captain's Glory" is a spellboundingly complex and ambitious novel that takes the reader's breath away. The sence of dread in this one is almost suffocating in its intensity. "

    " Not bad. I kinda felt let down and I thought the end was a bit weird but it wasn't a bad read. "

    " These Shatner books are surprisingly good because of the Reeves-Stevens duo. They really kind of defy Trek canon though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 3/29/2011

    " Shatner's Captain's trilogy ends with a bang, having many of the aspects from the previous books converge in the climax and end. The story kept me going, though I think I liked Captain's Blood the best out of the Captain's trilogy. "
