Maybe it's me. Maybe I am just getting too old to be reading Star Trek novels any longer, especially if they still feature the original Star Trek cast of characters. But then again, maybe the problem is what has been done with these characters. As almost any fan will know, Shatner has picked up the silly threads from The Next Generation, and improbably reunited Kirk, Spock, Scotty and McCoy with the TNG characters. In this volume, they are all together once again. Even Admiral Janeway (perhaps the least simpatica leading character this franchise ever produced) manages to play a major role. The plot is the usual yarn of disreputable aliens (this time Romulans), centered around an apparent assination of Spock, and the importance certain Romulans place upon Kirk's gender-shifting, hybrid 'son' of completely unbelievable DNA. In typically Star Trek fashion, the 'boy' is adorable, a genius, quick-witted and just about perfect. Meanwhile everyone else is similarly perfect, Picard and Janeway, by way of an example, 'treating' us to a fencing match that would leave Olympic champions in the dust. YAWN! Spock spends most of the tale off stage, so we get to follow Kirk (always the REAL star of Shatner's yarns), improbably trailed by a 150 year-old McCoy, as he gets to the bottom of all this and, as usual, saves the day. The introduction of Kirk's 'son,' Joseph, probably meant to add new blood to the by now time worn tales, has been a big mistake, one that gets larger with every installment of this story. Rather than making Kirk a more believable character, the child's presence only seems to give Kirk new opportunities to puff up, draw lines in the sand, and generally act indignent. But that could be just bad writing.... It is time all these people took a well deserved retirement and left the galaxy in more capable, less pompus hands. Sentient beings throughout the quadrant, I can assure the authors, would be eternally grateful.

The story line was excellent and the way Willaim Shatner portrayed the emotions of Kirk as a father, captain, adventurer was very well done. The only issue with the story is that it raises more questions than it answers. Here is hoping the next book comes out soon.

William Shatner did an outstanding job. Bringing the Crew o the Enterprise and the Titan together. Outstanding
