Overview

If you think you know how it all began, think again...

Young Jim Kirk wants nothing to do with Starfleet, and never wants to leave Earth. In the summer of 2249, he's a headstrong seventeen-year-old barely scraping by in San Francisco, haunted by horrific memories from his past.

In the same city, a nineteen-year-old alien named Spock is determined to rise above the emotional turmoil of his mixed-species heritage. He's determined to show his parents he has what it takes to be Vulcan -- even if it means exposing a mysterious conspiracy at the heart of the Vulcan Embassy, stretching to the farthest reaches of the Federation's borders. There, a chilling new threat has arisen to test the Federation's deepest held belief that war is a thing of the past and that a secure future can be forged through peaceful means alone. But it is in San Francisco, home to Starfleet Academy, where that threat will be met by two troubled teenage boys driven to solve the mystery that links them both.

In time, the universe will come to know these young rebels as Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock...two of the Federation's greatest heroes. Yet before they were heroes, they were simply conflicted teenagers, filled with raw ambition and talent, not yet seasoned by wisdom and experience, searching for their own unique directions in life -- a destiny they'll discover on one fateful night in San Francisco, when two lives collide, and two legends are born.

Star Trek: Academy -- Collision Course sets the stage for an exciting new era of Star Trek adventure, and for the first time reveals Kirk and Spock as they were, and how they began their journey to become the Kirk and Spock we know today.

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.

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 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.

I loved the story. Where is the sequel? It's advertised at the back of the book. It was especially nice since it was over 300 pages.

Had my doubts about this at first, but getting into it made me erase my doubts. Shatner and fellow writers did a wonderful job. Some of the technical descriptions were a bit difficult to understand, but overall, found it interesting and very well done. If you are a Star Trek fan, this is one you must read.
