All is not as it seems, and soon Kirk is forced to confront the hideous consequences of actions taken more than a hundred years prior, as well as his own inner doubts. After years of quiet and isolation, does he still have what it takes to put things right-and join with Captain Picard to save the lives of everyone aboard a brand-new Enterprise?
An unforgettable saga peopled by old friends and ancient enemies, Star Trek: Spectre propels Kirk on a journey of self-discovery every bit as harrowing as the cataclysmic new adventure that awaits him.

Ok to b honest I have mixed feelings about this book.. I loved all the different ST characters in the book.. That was very nice.. I liked Janeway as a warrior. I didn't like the way Picard was written in this book.. Umm I don't see Kirk acting like a love sick teenager I just don't.. There was so much wrong with that.. I debated about giving this a 3 but the story was interesting and to me unique so that's why I'm giving it a Also I am interested enough to read Ok to b honest I have mixed feelings about this book..

Shelves: audiobook. Star Trek: Spectre is either evidence that Bill Shatner cannot write, or that he cannot hire a decent ghost writer. Now throw in Bill Shatner doing the narration. And cheesy sound effects. That was enough for me. It had moved beyond amusing to just too damned irritating for words.
The synopsis mentions that we get a return of Spock. And McCoy. And the Mirror Universe folk. No mention of kitchen sinks. Escape in the life pods while you can. This book breaks all the rules given to the authors of Star Trek novels such as: Don't bring back to life characters that are dead or should be dead by know, don't mix classic series characters with Next Generations or the characters of other series, don't bring characters to a timeline when they shouldn't be, don't base your novel on episodes from the TV show, etc.

The parallel Universe storyline was kind of over used in the Star Trek Enterprise series and this book came out years before that show, so at the time it may have sound as an interesting idea, but to me it seemed as the cheapest idea to bring back from the old TV show. The original three books from Shatner that brought Kirk back to life were actually good. At least I liked them better than the idea of the rebook of the classic series in a new alternative timeline for the new Movies.
I only give this book 3 stars because it was just passable, but it ended in a cliffhanger, so I'll have to read the next two books in the series. Sep 01, David rated it liked it. I'll give it 3 stars for nostalgia's sake. When I first read the book years and years ago, I loved it. Mirror Universe!
Goatee Spock! But upon reading it now, I see it almost as the ultimate "Kirk is better than Picard" story. Spoilers ahead: Picard loses his ship right away.
Picard is easily fooled by the bad guys. Picard has to be rescued by Kirk several times.

At one point, Picard is even attracted artificially to Kirk's girlfriend? The plot seems recycled from I'll give it 3 stars for nostalgia's sake. The plot seems recycled from earlier in the series as well. Kirk is trying to figure out his life and has to go to space to find himself. The other problem I have is his love interest, Teilani.
She is introduced in the first book in the series and is written as another one of his "conquests" from the Original Series, when he seemed to have a new woman every episode.
I don't get the chemistry between them, so when he decides to destroy a prison camp and kill innocent lives because he thinks she's dead, it just seems over-dramatic. Also, if one more chapter ends with "he faded to the absolute blackness of oblivion" or some similar construction when everyone knows the character is still alive, I might have to throw the book against a wall.
About the author
So I'm giving the same review to all the books in this part of the "Shatnerverse" I basically enjoyed them, being fans of his co-authors, Garfield Reeves-Stevens and Judith Reeves-Stevens. I don't remember if there were any Archer era references. It was pleasant, it was entertaining, it did the job.

The books mostly moved along, would have been perfect vacation reads, entertaining, fairly mindless, and some fun moments.
What did tick me off was the uneven copy-editing. I love offers like this since it lets me fill in my collection, and reduce my reliance on paper books, but I digress.click

The books have been available for years, they undoubtedly came from an electronic catalog, so why are there spelling and spacing errors???? But definitely worth the sale price Sep 04, James rated it liked it Shelves: sci-fi-fantasy , star-trek. This book reads like fan-fiction in both good and bad ways.
