Overview

Although Kirk appeared to perish at the conclusion of Star Trek® Generations™, the big national bestseller, The Return, revealed the amazing story of Kirk's resurrection. Now, William Shatner brings his distinctive blend of talents as an actor, writer, director, and producer to continue the saga of Jim Kirk's second life -- and to reunite one of the greatest teams of any future century...START TREK: AVENGER.

A lethal virogen, inimical to all conventional forms of planet life, threatens the entire Federation with starvation and dissolution. In this moment of Starfleet's greatest need, Captain James T. Kirk, long believed dead, embarks on a desperate quest to find the true source of the mysterious virogen.

Elsewhere in the galaxy, Ambassador Spock, his diplomatic efforts stalled by the spread of famine and chaos, returns to his native world of vulcan to confront a mystery of a deeply personal nature -- an investigation that soon leads him to a reunion with a long-lost friend he never expected to see again. Kirk and Spock, together again, must join forces to save a new generation from an awesome menace unleashed by a ruthless interplanetary conspiracy.

Full of high adventure and powerful drama, STAR TREK: AVENGER is an engrossing new Star Trek epic -- and a moving tale of past memories and new hope that only WIlliam Shatner could tell.

I thought that captains glory was a great novel and a good story. If this is the last one with a older kirk then i,m happy with the way it ends. shatner gives it a end but still leaves it open for more books. I think that shatners star trek novels have been better then the last 4 movies put together. Shatners star trek novels are what the TNG movies sould have been like, full of action, adventure, drama, comedy, suspense, everything that made the original series and movies so excellent. If your a star trek fan then you sould try reading shatners trek novels.

A great actor and a great writer! William Shatner surpasses many other Star Trek writers I've read (i.e. Peter David), and creates a story that would make a compelling Star Trek movie. I liked the element of romance he carried throughout the entire book, something which is scarce in the universe of Star Trek.

A story about two young adults trying to find their place in the world and how an unforeseen event changes their lives forever. It's an inspiring story to see these two individuals overcome the obsticales they face along their paths that lead them to the same destination... The starting point to their future careers in starfleet. Besides, it's an inside look before Kirk became a Captian and Spock became his First lieutenant. I throughly enjoyed the book and could hardly set it down. I'd only recommend this to people who like space exploration/Sci-Fi Stories. I can only hope that they will publish the next series "Trial Run" to see where Kirk goes next and who else he'll meet along his way.

I wish Trial Run would be completed!! Hey Bill, get on that will you ? Collision Course for me was outstanding!! When the new Abrams Star Trek movie was release, I was hoping that it was this book!! It wasn't and the movie was ok. This Book, Star Trek Academy: Collision Course, will be a GREAT movie. I feel that it is closer to what actually happened to all of the characters. Unlike some others posting here I have only read it twice thus far...However I think It is time to start again.

A fun read about Kirk and Spock's early life at the academy. A mystery unfolds.

This is the second book I read from the Star Trek universe. Academy Collision Course was a lot better than my last read Captain's Glory. I must have liked the writer enough to try him again with this book and I am glad that i did! I found it very exciting from beginning to end. I thought the interaction of Kirk and Spock was perfect. I look forward to reading the next book in the series!

This was the best Star Trek book I've read, and the best light reading I've read in a long time. It had all the original "Kirk" appeal: swashbuckling and humor. I loved the scene when they are trying to fly a starship and it is tilting and rolling! I loved that it was consistent with the Star Trek universe, that the Academy recruits still got to be heroes without making the Federation look foolish. I loved the banter between Kirk and Spock. The science was sound. I liked Kirk's first transporter experience. Basically it is a solid Star Trek story, within the parameters of the "real" Star Trek universe. The only things I didn't like: 1. Kirk trying to pin Spock for something he didn't do, and 2. Kirk's brother's storyline. Otherwise, a great novel for Trek fans.

I have read several other of Mr.Shatner's books, but this by far was my favorite, having read it (only) five times. It provides a fresh(literally)new look at Kirk and Spock, starting with them as less-than-stellar teens, when they forged their new, although reluctant, friendship. Even Kirk's brother, Sam, is more than just a name mentioned as the story also takes a much closer look at his character, as he tries to keep (and not very well) his younger brother out of trouble. I don't want to reveal anymore here. As I mentioned in the heading, this book is a VERY thought-provoking page-turner - making you want more when you get to the end. I can hardly wait for the next story. ('ya hear that, Bill???) Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go read this book again.

I think this book gives great detail of how Kirk begins his life after the Enterprise. it adds fundamental understanding to some bits of information written in Star Trek: Generations, and is a perfect start to the odessy series.

This has become one of my favorite books. It is very well written and the characters are done perfectly. It has everything you could hope for in a Star Trek book, and it gives you a better look into the beginning friendship of Kirk and Spock. All in all a fantastic book.
