Book Description

7 Feb 2005 Star Trek
The Romulan Empire is in disarray after the destructive leadership of the Reman Shinzon, and Ambassador Spock launches a bold attempt to reunify the Romulans with their distant forbears, 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 to investigate the death of his beloved friend. Given covert assistance by Captains Jean-Luc Picard on the newly-refitted Enterprise and Will Riker on the Argo, Kirk travels to Romulus as a civilian, accompanied by his eight-year-old son Joseph and the cantankerous Dr McCoy. There he discovers an alluring enemy from his past and discovers that Spock's apparent murder hides a deeper mystery, one that reaches back in time to the very origins of life on Earth. Trapped on a deadly, alien world on the eve of a civil war that could plunge the galaxy into a civilization-ending conflict, Kirk's investigation brings him at last to a hidden Reman fortress. There he uncovers the true threat facing the Romulans, and learns that for peace to prevail he must sacrifice his son, whose blood holds a staggering secret...

4.0 out of 5 stars A great return to classic Shatner trek 20 Jan 2004
By A Customer
After the slow paced, dissapointing Captains Peril, Shatner stikes back with this excellent story. Continuing to weave threads from established Star Trek stories into his books, this story picks up where Star Trek 10 : Nemesis, left off. While the film was ultimatly dissapointing, Shatner has picked up where the film left off, and delved deeper into the story, examining the Romulan / Reman relationship. Providing an explanation for Shinzons attempted attack, that we never got in Nemesis. All the usual suspects are here, and they are on a mission (or three) to Romulus, charged with securing the future safety of the Federation. This is what we had been waiting for, a top-notch Romulan story.
This book races along, with a story to match any other trek novel, and is most definatly one of my favourites.

4.0 out of 5 stars kirk has no luck with his sons 12 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Interesting development which takes Kirk further towards an obviously oncoming legendary status. Not sure the relationship between father and son entirely works, but the pace and excitement are up to scratch

4.0 out of 5 stars bigger and better 9 May 2013
By Borg109
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In this episode, we have Romulans, Remons, the next generation crew, Spock, scotty and McCoy and of course our two favourite captains and even Admiral Janeway and a well known EMH. It is amazing how so much has been packed into such a reasonably sized novel, the story twists and turns through space (not time) to reveal dark forces and hidden agendas and guess who has to sort it out? Kirk and his friends battle their way across the galaxy in this very readable epic tale. Buy this and you won't regret it.
