Narrated by William Shatner.

CAPTAIN'S PERIL is an excellent read, recommended to Star Trek fans that, like me, still think that the book series was in comatose state, until Shatner started writing his outstanding trilogies with the Reeves-Stevens. Having read this novel in the span of 4hrs, I have to say it was on the most enjoyable Star Trek books that I have read in a very long time

Reviews about Star Trek: Captain's Peril (7):
Shatner's previous novels, while interesting and fun, had a bit too much of the tendancy to make "his character", James T. Kirk, into a superhero/demigod. This tendancy is hardly unique to Shatner, but it's even more unbecoming when coming from a mature man who clearly identifies with the character (for the rather obvious reason that he played it on TV and the movies) than it is when coming from an immature hero-worshiping fan. This book largely avoided that problem, and if some fans of "The Next Generation" will feel that Picard came off looking rather pale by comparison to Kirk, that was more because Picard was given somewhat short shrift than because Kirk was made to look too good. And it isn't entirely unfair to make Picard come across as stodgy and dull by comparison to Kirk; he IS.

There are really two stories here; one is set on post-Dominion war Bajor, where Kirk and Picard are "vacationing". The other is a flashback, told mostly by Kirk to Picard (although not in his own voice; we get it in standard third-person narrative while Picard is hearing it directly from Kirk), a story of his first real adventure on the Enterprise, many years ago. The transitions between stories weren't always entirely seamless, and some of the excuses used for returning to the flashback story when Kirk WASN'T telling the story to Picard were somewhat weak, but the story itself was extremely good, showing some of the tensions between Kirk and his crew (particularly Spock) before they became acquainted well enough to trust each other's style and judgement. We also see a cameo of Uhura's first taste of bridge action, which was handled very well.

The other story, the "current" one, wasn't quite as good, in fact started quite slowly, but actually picked up quite well by the end. By itself, I probably wouldn't have given it more than three stars, but it would have been a high three stars, almost good enough for four. I suppose it isn't surprising that Shatner continues to have a much better feel for the original series characters and settings than the later ones.
The story starts off a little slow and dialogue heavy, but develops into an intriguing narrative. There is a nice back and forth between the present and an episode from early in Kirk's career that will seem to have future and potentially dire consequences. I find myself looking forward to the next book of this trilogy. Have a little patience with this story and you will be rewarded.
A good story. Kirk and Picard vacation together on Bajor first planning to arrive by doing a plantary orbital skydive and then assist with an archaeological dig in progress. Problems already start on the dive down and get worse as the leader of the dig is killed before their arrival and of course Kirk and Picard get in the middle of everything risking their lives. But during the quiet periods Kirk tells Picard of his first major assignment and of the start of his and Spock's freindship (about 40% of the book). The main story gets resolved well but the story Kirk tells does not because I think it is the intro to his next book coming out.
For those that have not followed the original Star Trek from the begining and throughout. Kirk is still around in the new Start Trek time frame because he disappeared in some kind of time thread and was thought dead for around 75 years and was brought back by Picard in the movie and latered seemingly died but was returned to life (a book by Shatner). Spock (an ambassador at large) is still alive since Vulcans have very long life spans; McCoy is a very old admiral having had 100 plus repacements and grafts; Scotty is still around having locked himself in a perpetual loop on his ship's transporter when his ship was trapped and he was much later released by Gordie on the Star Trek Next Generation.
Shatner lets Kirk have some well earned r and r with his successor to the enterprise center seat, Jean luc Picard. When the pair arrive on bajor a mystery begins, and Kirk relieves an adventure from his early days. Very well written story, but some lines of dialogue don't exactly feel like Picard speaking, more like a whole other character. Highly recommended if you're a trek fan!
A nice adventure with Captain Kirk and Captain Picard, but I also like the story when Kirk first took command of the Enterprise ( taking place a little before the episode Where No Man Has Gone Before )Dr. Piper got to do some things and Communications officer Alden, would love to see Gary Mitchell, though, but once again, you know who save the universe an everyone else, that's right, James Tiberius Kirk.
a bit outside the normal space battles of Star Trek, more like a side note, a hey this happened too in the Star Trek galaxy.
This was not one of the best in this series, and did take a while to get in to. That said, it was worth the reading, and it's still a great Shatnerverse!
Very good reading
