Book #3 of 3
Continuing a fresh new approach to Star Trek adventure! In the powerful
conclusion of this flagship trilogy, the fate of the future depends upon not
only Captain James T. Kirk, but also those who serve under his command,
braving the myriad perils and challenges posed by strange new worlds
and civilizations . . .
Thanks to the accidental triggering of an ancient alien technology,
Captain Kirk has been banished to his own past.
During a brutal massacre on Tarsus IV, Kodos the Executioner
entered the history books as one of the most
genocidal tyrants of the twenty-third century. As a boy, Kirk barely
survived. Can he stand by now and let it happen again?
Lt. Kevin Riley is the only other survivor of Tarsus IV serving aboard the
U.S.S. Enterprise. His traumatic memories provide Spock's best hope of
finding their time lost captain -- before Kirk alters their time line forever!
Again, the story teaser is completely wrong!
Kirk does end up in his past but not on Tarsus IV and
the story has nothing to do with Kodos the Executioner!
It's almost unbelievable to me that Pocket Books
could screw up the story description on the back of the book!
Anyway . . .
An entertaining story, but with very odd aliens. The "Shechenag"
are a kind of cyborg spider-like thing. We learn very little
about them and it seems the only reason they're introduced is
so the crew has one more problem to overcome.
I enjoyed this 3 book set, but I'm glad it wasn't a 4 book set.
I was getting a bit weary of the story. I hope they don't continue to
take 3 novels to tell each story. It's just a money grab!
