CAPTAIN'S BLOOD

By: William Shatner
with Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens

Following the explosive events of Star Trek Nemesis, the Romulan Star Empire is in disarray, and Ambassador Spock attempts to render aid by launching a last-ditch effort to reunify the Romulans with their distant forebears, the Vulcans. But when Spock is publically assassinated at a peace rally, Starfleet and the Federation are unable to search for the criminals responsible without triggering an intergalactic war.

Thus, it falls to James T. Kirk, now retired, to investigate his beloved friend's murder. Given clandestine assistance by Captain Will Riker of the Starship Titan, and accompanied by his good friend Jean-Luc Picard, Kirk travels to Romulus as a civilian, along with his five-year-old child, Joseph, the cantankerous Docktor Leonard McCoy, retired Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott, as well as several members of Picard's crew, still waiting to return to duty on the badly damaged U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E.  But on Romulus' sister world, Remus, Kirk unexpectedly encounters an alluring enemy from his past as Picard and he discover that Spock's apparent murder hides an even deeper mystery, literally reaching beyond the limits of the galaxy.

Trapped on a deadly, alien world on the eve of a Romulan civil war that could plunge the galaxy into a civilization-ending conflict, Kirk's investigation at last brings him to the heart of a staggering conspiracy.  Now, he discovers the true threat facing the Romulans, and is forced into the heartrendering realization that for peace to prevail, he must sacrifice the freedom of his son, whose very blood holds the secret to his startling destiny.


TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


Although not as good as his previous novels,
this one is still a decent adventure.

It's a bit strange to see our beloved captain with a 5 year old son
to take care of but it's handled quite well.  Kirk is a very protective
father but he still manages to get everyone (including his son)
into some dangerous situations.

I'm not a huge fan of the Romulans as they've been portrayed
in TNG up to present day, but you don't have to be a
Romulan fan to enjoy this story.

Plenty of drama and danger for any Trek fan to enjoy!
