A lethal virogen, inimical to all conventional forms of planet life, threatens the entire Federation with starvation and dissolution. In this moment of Starfleet's greatest need, Captain James T. Kirk, long believed dead, embarks on a desperate quest to find the true source of the mysterious virogen.
Elsewhere in the galaxy, Ambassador Spock, his diplomatic efforts stalled by the spread of famine and chaos, returns to his native world of vulcan to confront a mystery of a deeply personal nature -- an investigation that soon leads him to a reunion with a long-lost friend he never expected to see again. Kirk and Spock, together again, must join forces to save a new generation from an awesome menace unleashed by a ruthless interplanetary conspiracy.
Full of high adventure and powerful drama, STAR TREK: AVENGER is an engrossing new Star Trek epic -- and a moving tale of past memories and new hope that only WIlliam Shatner could tell.

A quite enjoyable trip into nostalgia. This time Kirk, Spock and McCoy save the universe again along with the help of the people of the Enterprise and the crew of a science vessel, the Tobias. There seems to be no right or wrong side to be on - only the methods used for getting the message across differs. A deadly virogen is sweeping the galaxy unchecked and demands sacrifices and renewal of old friendships to prevent the fall of the Federation as a result of the devastation. Only time will tell if this is only temporary or if the lessons have been learned to secure the future.
BOTTOM-LINE: All abour renewal and cycles . PLOT OR PREMISE: This is the third in a Star Trek trilogy, with nanites, sentient Borg, and Vulcan terrorists. . WHAT I LIKED: The portrayal of the TNG crew is a little better in this book, perhaps reflecting the better portrayals seen in the TNG movies. It links Kirk, Spock, Picard, and the entire history of the various Enterprises together with Sarek. . WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: n/a . DISCLOSURE: I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow him on social media.
