Following the explosive events of Star Trek® Nemesis, the Romulan Star Empire is in disarray, and Ambassador Spock attempts to render aid by launching a last-ditch effort to reunify the Romulans with their distant forebears, the Vulcans. But when Spock is publicly assassinated at a Romulan peace rally, Starfleet and the Federation are unable to search for the criminals responsible without triggering an intergalactic war.

Thus, it falls to James T. Kirk, now retired, to investigate his beloved friend's murder. Given clandestine assistance by Captain Will Riker of the Starship Titan, and accompanied by his good friend Jean-Luc Picard, Kirk travels to Romulus as a civilian, along with his five-year-old child, Joseph, the cantankerous Doctor Leonard McCoy, retired Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott, as well as several members of Picard's crew, still waiting to return to duty on the badly damaged U.S.S. Enterprise™ NCC-1701-E. But on Romulus' sister world, Remus, Kirk unexpectedly encounters an alluring enemy from his past as Picard and he discover that Spock's apparent murder hides an even deeper mystery, literally reaching beyond the limits of the galaxy.

Trapped on a deadly, alien world on the eve of a Romulan civil war that could plunge the galaxy into a civilization-ending conflict, Kirk's investigation at last brings him to the heart of a staggering conspiracy. Now, he discovers the true threat facing the Romulans, and is forced into the heartrending realization that for peace to prevail, he must sacrifice the freedom of his son, whose very blood holds the secret to his startling destiny.

Captain's Blood is a return to the sweeping action of William Shatner's greatest Star Trek adventures, bringing together both generations to face an unstoppable enemy in a battle for the existence of all life in this galaxy, and beyond.

    " Not one of the better written Star Trek books. I wanted to put it down half way through but like to finish what I start. "

    " Thought it was a good continuation from Captain's Peril, especially since it involves more of the Trek characters and is set in Romulan space. I enjoyed it and could not predict the ending. "

    " Very well written, this is one of Shatner's best works, if you ask me. "

    " I loved the concept, and I love Joseph, but I'm really not that much of a fan of the book surprisingly. Something is missing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benjamin Plume | 11/15/2010

    " These last three don't quite hold up to the other Shatnerverse novels, but they're still pretty good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikael Kuoppala | 4/11/2010

    " A rollercoaster ride of incredibly many plotlines that converge and interact. Takes the reader's breath away with its incredible complexity and examination of the fascinating imaginary culture of the Romulan race. "

    " I loved the concept, and I love Joseph, but I'm really not that much of a fan of the book surprisingly. Something is missing. "
