CAPTAIN'S PERIL

By: William Shatner
with Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens

The Dominion War is over.  The Federation is at peace. What better time for two legendary starship captains to set aside the demands of duty and simply take some well-deserved time off?

But when James T. Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard arrive on Bajor to dive among the ruins of an acient sunken city, conditions are far from what they had planned.  The small group of scientists the captains have joined suddenly find their equipment sabotaged - isolating them from Deep Space Nine and any hope of rescue - as one by one, a murderer stalks them.

Cut off from the people and technology on which they have always depended, Kirk and Picard must rely more than over on their own skills and abilities, and their growing friendship, to solve the mysterious deaths and protect one of Bajor's greatest living treasures.

At the same time, Kirk finds the events he and Picard struggle with are similar to one of the first challenges he faced as the new captain of the Starship Enterprise, less than six months into his first five-year mission.

Now, with time running out for a dying child trapped in the scientist's camp, and Picard missing after a diving disaster, Kirk must search his memories of the past to relive one of his earliest adventures, propelling him into a harrowing personal journey that reveals the beginning of his path from young Starfleet officer to renowned legend, and the existence of a new and completely unsuspected threat to the existence of all life in the universe.


TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


This novel is actually two stories in one.
The first story involves Jim Kirk and Jean Luc Picard
on the planet Bajor supposedly on vacation, but
it doesn't take long for them to get involved
in a dangerous situation on the planet.

The other story takes place just five months after Kirk takes
command of the Enterprise and one of his (and our)
first surprises is that Spock puts in a formal request
for a transfer off the ship!

Both stories are entertaining but I think Kirk is written
a bit over-the-top.  We all know that Kirk is a risk-taker,
but in this story he takes wild risks that others disagree with,
but Kirk just plows ahead anyway with little explanation.
It just seems a bit much, that's all.

Other than that, it was an entertaining novel that I enjoyed reading.
