Publisher's Summary

Veridian lll: A world has been saved, the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-D lies in ruins, and one of the galaxy's greatest heroes rest beneath a simple cairn of rocks on a lonely hillside. But as a legendary Vulcan ambassador comes at last to the grave of his best and dearest friend, the adventure is only beginning. For the Borg and renegades from the Romulan Empire have joined forces in an unholy alliance against the United Federation of Planets, and their ultimate weapon is none other than James T. Kirk, resurrected by mysterious alien science to destroy the Borg's most formidable enemy: Jean-Luc Picard. From Deep Space Nine to the Borg Homeworld itself, the battle is joined in the ultimate confrontation between the old generation and the new. Old friends are reunited and ancient secrets revealed, as Riker, Spock, Data, and all of the Federation's best and brightest find themselves enmeshed in a cosmic saga that will test their strengths and loyalties to the very limit.For more Trek

Shatner writes himself back to life

In many ways I get the feeling that Shatner wrote this book because he couldn't cope with the idea of a star trek universe without Kirk. Kirk is the out and out hero in this book and while most of our other favourite characters appear, this is a kirk story.



The book shares Shatner's bombastic sensibility and addresses many of the failings of the 'generations' film. The book is a no holes barred adventure and is has a unique charm. If you enjoy Shatner's sense of humour and grandiosity you will like this.

Makes me wish this was unabridged...!

Where does Star Trek: The Return (Adapted) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the better Star Trek audio books out there - but I just wish this was the full, unabridged, version...! It's an old recording now (roughly 10 years old - coming out not long after the Star Trek: Generations film, and the Ashes Of Eden book preceding it) - but it stands up well!


Who was your favorite character and why?

Spock - because his character's backstory managed to put a completely unexpected perspective on the closing parts of the story!


Which scene did you most enjoy?

The scene where Kirk and Picard meet again!


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me smile as I listened - reminding me of the golden days of Star Trek!
