The Dominion War is over. The Federation is at peace. What better time for two legendary starship captains to set aside the demands of duty and simply take some well-deserved time off? But when James T. Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard arrive on Bajor to dive among the ruins of an ancient sunken city, conditions are far from what they had planned. The small group of scientists the captains have joined suddenly find their equipment sabotaged -- isolating them from Deep Space Nine(tm) and any hope of rescue -- as one by one, a murderer stalks them. Cut off from the people and technology on which they have always depended, Kirk and Picard must rely more than ever on their own skills and abilities, and their growing friendship, to solve the mysterious deaths and protect one of Bajor's greatest living treasures. At the same time, Kirk finds the events he and Picard struggle with are similar to one of the first challenges he faced as the new captain of the Starship Enterprise(tm), less than six months into his first five-year mission. Now, with time running out for a dying child trapped in the scientists' camp, and Picard missing after a diving disaster, Kirk must search his memories of the past to relive one of his earliest adventures, propelling him into a harrowing personal journey that reveals the beginning of his path from young Starfleet officer to renowned legend, and the existence of a new and completely unsuspected threat to the existence of all life in the universe. From the breathtaking shores of Bajor's Inland Sea to the welcoming arms of a seductive and deadly alien commander intent on making Kirk her own, Star Trek®, Captain's Peril is the exciting new novel that spans space and time to present Captain Kirk's most personal, and most extreme, adventure yet.… (more)

I got this book because it had the name Reeves_Stevens on the cover. I know these writers of old and the joy of their writing is that they add real science into the Star Trek universe. Not only that, but they do it so seamlessly that even stuff that was pure technobabble in the series suddenly acquires an underlying logic. ( )

Another "Star Trek" collaboration by William Shatner and the Reeves-Stevens'; this one is actually a little better written than the others. I figure Shatner is getting old enough that he's relinquished more control to his co-writers. The book is a little disjointed, jumping back and forth between two separate and unconnected stories, one in the "present" on an archaeological vacation with Jean-Luc Picard, the other from Kirk's early days as Captain, when he was still learning his way, especially with Spock. Both stories are interesting, albeit in a minor sort of way. The one with Picard is a murder mystery, the other is a mission to gain access to an incredibly advanced warp-drive (warp 15) by competing with Klingons and other races for the right to protect the alien women who stole it. Not too bad. ( )

From rock and tempest, fire and foe,

Protect them wheresoe'er they go;

For those in peril on the sea!
