William Shatner is known to millions as the actor who played Captain James T. Kirk throughout the original Star Trek television series and several movies. He is now a bestselling science fiction author.
An old threat in a new form, the Totality threatens to eradicate all life in the universe. Starships throughout the Federation are succumbing to malfunctioning warp drives, and shadow creatures are kidnapping key people throughout the Federation. In their own ways, Jean-Luc Picard, William Riker, James Kirk and Kathryn Janeway must figure out how to combat a nearly indestructible and endless enemy. Like any good franchise, Star Trek seeks to grab the attention of the widest spectrum of fans as possible. In that vein, the authors populate the story with characters from Star Trek, The Next Generation and Voyager. Shatner's voice captures the tension and energy of the scenes, which are also capitulated by the musical score and occasional sound effects. Shatner ably embodies the voice of Kirk, but his characterizations of Picard, Riker, Worf and several others are mediocre and pale in comparison to the actors who created them. Even fans of the show may become significantly lost in this abridgment without sufficient reading of previous Star Trek books. Simultaneous release with the Pocket Books hardcover. (Sept.)
