Overview


After the end of the EnterpriseTM's five-year mission, Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and Dr. McCoy struggle to establish new lives apart from each other and the starship. The newly-promoted Admiral Kirk is placed in charge of a specially-created Starfleet division and attempts to defuse a critical hostage situation; Mr. Spock, who, in the midst of a teaching assignment on Vulcan, finds the one thing he least expected; and Dr. McCoy, whose unerring instinct for trouble lands him smack in the middle of an incident that could trigger an interstellar bloodbath.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a story line constructed to fill in the gaps between the end of the original 1960s Star Trek TV series and the beginning of the feature-length movie series, the Enterprise docks on Earth, ending its five-year mission, and Kirk, Spock and McCoy go their separate ways until a tense hostage situation reunites them. ``Certain to appeal to the series' fans,'' predicted PW. (Aug.)

J. M. Dillard grew up coddled in the wilds of central Florida. After leaving her mother’s sheltering arms, she left Florida to reside in various locales, including Washington, DC, Vermont, and southern California. She herself now coddles a two-hundred-pound husband and two ninety-pound Labradors, all of whom are well-trained but persist in believing themselves to be lapdogs. She is the author of a plethora of Star Trek® books; as Jeanne Kalogridis (her evil alter-ego), she is the author of the acclaimed Diaries of the Family Dracul trilogy, and the historical fantasy The Burning Times.

This story takes place immediate after the Enterprise returns from it's original 5 year mission. There were some areas of the story that seemed to drag. It had more than one plot/story going on at the same time and the plots got a little muddied because of the writing style. But, overall it was a great tie-in between the 5 year mission and Star Trek the Motion Picture. Would recommend this book to any fan of the Star Trek Original Series.

This book averages out to four stars. There are basically two subplots going on here. The Spock/McCoy subplot is very well written and was obviously Dillard's inspiration for the book. The prologue begins this subplot and the epilogue ends with it. Five stars. The Kirk story, on the other hand, was very weak. You can't have a Star Trek story without Kirk, I guess, so Dillard made sure he was there. But the Kirk story was uninspired and dull, not worthy of the Captain (or newly promoted Admiral) of the Enterprise. Three stars. Star Trek the Lost Years is definitely a book worth reading, but it's a shame that Dillard wasn't able to drop the weak Kirk storyline and expand upon the much stronger Spock/McCoy story.

I have read this book several years ago & recently re-read it. This book fills in the gap betwwen the ending of the 5 year mission & the first Star Trek movie. It even has references to Vulcans Passing their spirit upon death as Spock did to Mcoy in the second movie. This book was well written,. It's the kind of book that you can't put down once you start reading. Definately for Classic Trek Fans.

Wow! This book has it all, Vulcans, Kirk getting promoted (and getting hit on )Spock getting engaged and McCoy getting in more trouble than he can bargain with. Uhura also plays a semi important part which is nice cuz usually her character is overlooked. Kirk and Co. certainly keep busy after thier five year mission. This book does not dissapoint
