Are you willing to settle for an ordinary life? Or do you think you were meant for something better? Something special?"

One grew up in the cornfields of Iowa, fighting for his independence, for a way out of a life that promised only indifference, aimlessness and obscurity.

"You will forever be a child of two worlds, capable of choosing your own destiny. The only question you face is, which path will you chose?"

The other grew up on the jagged cliffs of the harsh Vulcan desert, fighting for acceptance, for a way to reconcile the logic he was taught with the emotions he felt.

In the far reaches of the galaxy, a machine of war bursts into existence in a place and time it was never meant to be. On a mission of retribution for the destruction of his planet, its half-mad captain seeks the death of every intelligent being, and the annihilation of every civilized world.

Kirk and Spock, two completely different and unyielding personalities must find a way to lead the only crew, aboard the only ship, that can stop him.

"The wait is over.

    I very much enjoyed this audio book. The reading and voice acting is superb. I saw the movie so the story was not new to me but still great. I highly recommend this audio book to all fans of sci-fi and Star Trek. It's one of best ways of spending 8 hours that I can imagine.

    This is my first book by Alan Dean Foster and I enjoyed it. I am a fan of Star Trek and was interested to read about when the stars were in Space Academy. Do not know if was good or bad but I picture each of the crew as they were portrayed in the T.V. series. The book had a young James Kirk as a young trouble maker, very bright and easily bored, and Spock as the winner of all the academic awards. Look forward to more Star Trek books.
