"The Lost Years" tells the story of Captain Kirk's final hours
in command of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and how he,
Mr. Spock, and Dr. McCoy struggle to establish new
lives apart from each other and the starship.
We see the newly promoted Admiral Kirk, in charge of
a specially created Starfleet division, as he 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 . . .
I'm glad someone finally wrote about the events
as Kirk's first 5-year mission ends. We finally get
to see the struggle Kirk went through accepting
the promotion to admiral.
(He never should have accepted it!!)
(Yes, I know it's not real life, just a novel)
Another excellent story by J. M. Dillard
