He was the youngest man to captain
a starship in Federation history. His crew included
an untried first officer - and a maverick
ship's surgeon. In the years to come, the voyages
of Captain James T. Kirk and the
U.S.S. Enterprise would become legend.
But before their historic five year mission
began, before the crew meshed into the superb unit
that would journey across the galaxy, before
the legend took shape, there was the mission that
brought them together for the first time.
Here, at last, is that untold story - the first
voyage of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy and all
the rest of the Enterprise crew - the most
eagerly awaited Star Trek adventure of all!
I believe most of the details of this story have since
been contradicted by other forms of Star Trek,
but it's an entertaining story none-the-less.
It's worth reading if you want to experience
Star Trek before the influence of TNG.
