An epic new trilogy begins--a tie-in for the milestone fiftieth anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series--that stretches from the earliest voyages of the Starship Enterprise to Captain Kirk's historic five-year-mission...and from one universe to another! Hidden aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise is a secret that has been passed from captain to captain, from Robert April to Christopher Pike to James T. Kirk. Now the return of the enigmatic woman once known as Number One has brought that secret to light, and Kirk and his crew must risk everything to finish a mission that began with April so many years ago... Nearly two decades earlier, April and his crew first visited the planet Usilde, where they found both tragedy and a thorny moral dilemma. Today, the legacy of that fateful occasion will compel Kirk to embark on a risky voyage back to that forbidden world--which is now deep in territory claimed by the Klingon Empire!

I like the premise, but unless you really like Star Trek you probably won't like this.

Una regularly makes really bad decisions for no reason. Decisions that don't even make sense in the context of the story. For example, if you have limited time why would you cut through a window but at the next door teleport to the other side? If you were on a clock and knew those coordinates, why not use them from the outset?

I listened to this as an audiobook. The use of nonstandard pronouns to describe some aliens assumed to be sexless was unnecessary and made listening to the book confusing. I thought "She'he" was another character for a while. Plus, at one point it's made incredibly clear that they pair off into couples and produce offspring so why keep going with the ambiguous pronouns? It felt shoehorned in rather than organic to the story and really detracted from the audiobook listening experience.

Overall, it's a light, trashy, read. It's exactly what I needed after some of the heavy reading I've been doing. I started the second audiobook but if it doesn't improve soon I'm going to drop it. ( )

The first installment of this 50th Anniversary new release TOS trilogy leaves much to be desired. The story could have been interesting enough but was poorly developed and presented.

It's as though Cox searched through 50's pulp sci-fi mags for his imaginative creativity on this one. From the nearly tangible rubber suited alien "new comers" (danger, Will Robinson!), the comical yet evident stop motion action of the Animated Series (you can almost hear the irritating, piercing strain), and the clueless, innocent, natives taken advantage of by a superior, evil intelligent race (Vaal? hmmm), this comical bit of Star Trek Lit is completely unimpressive. It seemed the author tried to make it so "60s" that he utterly failed at achieving the nostalgic essence of TOS.

This book would have been better served as a 20 minute early 70's cartoon bit, instead of a 10hr audiobook. I surely hope the next two installments are better than this since I've already bought them. I was so looking forward to an unabridged Star Trek audiobook, a rare commodity indeed.

Robert Petkoff is impeccable. One of the best storytellers I have experienced. He did well with the material he had. ( )

Today's book is the beginning of a trilogy that was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. It's a collaborative process so each book has a different author and a somewhat different style of writing. Captain to Captain by Greg Cox opens up the Legacies series with the story of Captain April of the starship Enterprise on a mission to a planet called Usilde where things are not going well for the native inhabitants. An artifact is taken from the planet and is stowed onboard the Enterprise...but no one knows of it except Captain April and his first officer, Una. This secret is passed down from captain to captain until the reader reaches the present day Captain Kirk and Commander Spock. There's malevolent aliens, covert operations, and above all the exceptional crew of the NCC-1701. This is the setup book which explains exactly what the mysterious object is and what its used for as well as introducing us to a figure which rivals Spock for keeping calm in a harrowing situation. This is Star Trek sci-fi at its best. What better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of such a magnificent show?! ( )
