Overview

Star Trek: Best Destiny by Diane Carey


As James T. Kirk prepares to retire from a long and illustrious Starfleet career, events in a distant part of the Federation draw him back to a part of the galaxy he had last visited as a young man -- a mysterious world called Faramond whose name takes Kirk on a journey back to his youth.

At sixteen, Kirk is troubled, estranged from his father, and has a bleak future. However, a trip into space with Kirk's father George and Starfleet legend Captain Robert April changes James Kirk's life forever, when a simple voyage becomes a deadly trap. Soon Kirk and his father find themselves fighting for their lives against a vicious and powerful enemy.

Before the voyage ends, father and son will face life and death together, and James T. Kirk will get a glimpse of the future and his own Best Destiny...

I bought this book in Nook format, to replace the paperback copy that I read to tatters years ago. The book itself is still marvelous, and worth four stars, missing five only because of Diane Carey's love affair with heavy, florid prose. The Nook copy, though, is crap. No lines breaks to delineate changes in point-of-view, random splashes (often close to a page in length) of italicized text that shouldn't be italicized at all, and (worst of all) a small chunk of text *completely missing from the damned book!* I've already complained to Simon & Schuster, the publishers, but haven't heard from them. I'd suggest waiting until I update this to buy the book for your Nook. (But do get it then-- it's amazing!)

I have to admit I approached this book with some trepidation. What more can be told about Kirk? It turns out, a great deal. This is a much more genuine rendering of Kirk than Shatner's recent series. Worth a read.

*as Appleleaf waits below, two cats spiral down from Starclan, and another spirit padded out of the trees. The light brown tabby named Spruceleaf stepped forward first.* "Welcome, Appleleaf." *Spruceaf stepped forward and brushed her muzzle over Appleleaf's head.* "With this life I give you courage. Use it to be strong and stand up for your clan." *as Spruceleaf padded back, a silvery striped gray shecat, Shimmerbreeze, stepped forward.* "With this life I give you edurance. Use it to keep fighting for your clan, even if you feel all strength has left you." *finally, the wispy spirit of Autumnstar stepped forward.* "With this life I give you compassion. Be sure to always judge with both your heart and mind." *Autumnstar's spirit stepped back and she and Spruceleaf and Shimmerbreeze sat back to watch the rest of the ceremony.* ~Autumnstar, Spruceleaf, and Shimmerbreeze

First of all, I grew up in a house of trekkies. My first series was Star Trek: Voyager, I was 8-9years old when I first saw it and I wasn't a reader even then, so I was forcing myself to read it as much as I could. I enjoyed the story but I needed something to keep me to read, so I would listen to music which we all know is no way to read a book. A little advice... nature sounds or simple soft classical music(such as Claire de Lune by Debussy) is good to listen to as you read a book. I kept reading it and when I finished it, I really loved and enjoyed it. I liked how it explained Kirk's life growing up.

A small yellow she cat pads to me, her green eyes warm. "With this life, l give you wisdom. Wisdom will help you keep your clan on the right path, my daughter," Flowerblossom mews gently, touching noses with me before bounding away. I grit my teeth, and squeeze my eyes shut until the pain goes away. "T-that was the last one," l murmur, bewildered. "I'm....Applestar."
