This is the story of a hero - and a moment
forever lost to history.
It is the tale of Starfleet's early days, of a time before the
Star Trek we know. The story of a secret mission gone
horribly wrong - and an instant in time when the galaxy
stood poised on the brink of one final, destructive war. It is the
story of a ship since passed on into legend, and a man
we know only as the father of Starfleet's greatest captain.
His name is Kirk. Commander George Samuel Kirk. He is a
warrior, born and bred to battle. Now destiny has placed the
fate of a hundred innocent worlds on his shoulders.
And put the power of the greatest weapon the galaxy has
ever seen in his hands . . .
What a great idea for a story! Finding out about Kirk's
father is something I've wanted for a long time so I was
very pleased to see this novel.
The series "Enterprise" will probably contradict
most of the events in this novel.
Oh well, I enjoyed this book very much as I read
it long before the series "Enterprise" was ever thought of.
