An epic new trilogy begins—a tie-in for the milestone fiftieth anniversary of Star 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 U.S.S. 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!

Liked the fast pace!
This felt like a mid-point draft of what could've been a very good book had it been given an independent/objective read and critical excision of some logic flaws and "yeah, they wouldn't do that!" moments that yanked the reader out of the story. The depiction of Captain Una - that bent over backwards to illustrate how she managed to escape her sticky wickets because of her superiority at, oh, everything ever - instead made her seem an insufferable braggart and just kind of a two-dimensional jerk. The "bad guys" are worth the read, and the last 5 pages swung me over to the side for continuing the series.
Keep up the good work
