Description

An epic new trilogy begins - a tie-in for the milestone 50th anniversary ofStar Trek: The Original Series - that stretches from the earliest voyages of the starship Enterprise to Captain Kirk's historic five-year mission and from one universe to another!

Hidden aboard the USS Enterprise is a secret that has been passed from captain to captain, from Robert April to Christopher Pike to James T. Kirk. Now the return of the enigmatic woman once known as Number One has brought that secret to light, and Kirk and his crew must risk everything to finish a mission that began with April so many years ago.

Nearly two decades earlier, April and his crew first visited the planet Usilde, where they found both tragedy and a thorny moral dilemma. Today the legacy of that fateful occasion will compel Kirk to embark on a risky voyage back to that forbidden world - which is now deep in territory claimed by the Klingon Empire!

Welcome back to audio Star Trek

It's been too long.....it's just been too damn long! What a way to bring back Star Trek to audio. I hope this trilogy isn't the last either.

Captain to Captain has everything you could imagine from the original series. From going back to Captain April to Pike and to Kirk, a secret aboard the Enterprise is passed between Captains each time to keys to the ship are handed over.

When this secret item is stolen in order to complete a mission from years gone by, Kirk and crew are challenged to pursue to either stop, or help, the enigmatic woman known as Number One.

What really brought this book home for me was the fact that the central characters were actually NOT the stars of the Original series, but those of the quest that took place years ago. Sure they play an integral part of the story, but Kirks crew take a back seat for much of the book. You get a well done Star Trek story without the main cast.

Then there is Robert Petkoff.....I could hear each character come out in his voice. Kirk, Spock, Bones, Scotty, Sulu, Checkov, and even Uhura. I swear I was listening to an episode at times. Supremely well done, and well acted.

The ending will absolutely leave you wanting to jump into the next book right away.....speaking of which....time to put the headphones in and continue the story in book 2.

Highly recommended.

A Fantastic 50th Anniversary Instalment

I would highly recommend this book to any Star Trek fan. The author, Greg Cox, appears to be steeped in the lore of the series. He is able to handily integrate it throughout the narrative while not becoming bogged down in it.

The characters representations and thought process were well flushed out and consistent throughout the story. Greg Cox seems to not only understand the world of Star Trek, but also has an understanding for the way that a Starfleet officer would think through a situation. I particularly enjoyed, listening to the internal monologues. Well I will admit that the story itself was somewhat derivative, it was still thoroughly enjoyable and I was easily sucked into another awesome adventure.

The narrator did a good job as well. Well he appeared to struggle with the characters at the beginning (Mostly the original cast). Midway through the book, he appeared to find his stride and the overall voices of the characters.

Nice to have Star Trek audiobooks again

Really enjoyed this book. The story covers a mission of the Enterprise
Under the command of Robert April. The story expands some ideas from certain classic episodes of the series. This was a good kick off to the legacy trilogy

It's been too long

After so long without Star Trek Audiobooks I was thrilled that for the 50th anniversary they were giving us three. The book was good, and characterized both Kirk and Spock well, the rest of the regular crew are sadly background in this book. That being said it doesn't detract from the story.

My only wish is that they'd had sound effects, specifically the slightly "off brand" ones Simon and Schuster used to use instead of the official ones, I remember lots of time as a kid/teenager listening to those and I missed them here.

I'M A DOCTOR, I KNOW HOW TO KEEP A SECRET

MORE TRIAL, LESS ERROR, PLEASE
I agree with another reviewer, that this is easy listening. It is not overly complicated and is a little predictable in parts, but some twists, that I did not see coming. Star Trek fans will enjoy this most. I love the banter between Spock, Bones, and Kirk. In parts it was COl, Chuckle Out Loud. The Aliens are pretty cool, or should I say slippery.

I'LL MOURN LATER
I did have some problems with Uno, who was a main character. She is suppose to be the ultimate captain, but I found her to be making lots stupid decisions. She kind of cost the lives of nine officers and almost the Enterprise, as a young officer and The Federation, let her off the hook and to become a captain? I did not find her a logical captain.

DO NOT BE FOOLED BY IT'S SIZE
This is a full story in it's self, but it does lead to another episode and I will be buying that.

narrator
I thought he was pretty good. He does a good Kirk, Spock, Chekov and Scotty. His Sulu, Uhura and Computer voices are not so good, though.

Great addition to my Star Trek library

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you're a fan of the extended Star Trek universe, you will enjoy this book. Petkoff's narration was enjoyable as was the story. A great introduction for this series. Looking forward to completing it.

What did you like best about this story?

The pacing was tight and descriptions of the worlds vivid enough to assist the imagination.

A Classic Star Trek Story

This story takes me back to when I was a kid watching the original Star Trek series. It's very well written, the narrator is spot on and the story follows canon. Highly recommended if you are a fan of Star Trek.

Don’t waste your money or a credit!

This is a poorly written book, riddled with wooden dialogue, cliched characters, and terrible pacing. While realizing that not all Star Trek novels are Shakespeare, this plodding wreck of a “story” is painful to listen to, and it was so bad I exchanged it, something I VERY rarely do.

Snail people...really?

Great narration poor story and even worse writing. Full of cliches and primaries technique. I feel it was written on a junior high school level. Yes I will read the rest of the trilogy. In owe that to Gene Roddenberry, but this author is not terribly talented .
