Hidden aboard the USS 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!

Excellent Trek audiobook!! Highly recommended
Really enjoyed this audiobook - author really captured the spirit of Original Star Trek and created a great new story with these familiar characters... what a great way to celebrate Star Trek's 50th birthday! Loved it.
And as far as audiobook performance goes JUST WOW- a great narrator, captures the spirit of all the series actors/characters etc and tells the story in a way that it never gets boring, never sounds dull... even during quieter scenes. Cannot wait for books 2 and 3.... the continuation of the story and with the same narrator!
(And I'm really hoping we can see more new Trek books up in audio.... & preferably with this narrator please!! literally got me to buy extra audible credits on top of my stipend because I couldn't wait!)

Welcome back to audio Star Trek
It's been too long.....it's just been too damn long! What a way to bring back Star Trek to audio. I hope this trilogy isn't the last either.
Captain to Captain has everything you could imagine from the original series. From going back to Captain April to Pike and to Kirk, a secret aboard the Enterprise is passed between Captains each time to keys to the ship are handed over.
When this secret item is stolen in order to complete a mission from years gone by, Kirk and crew are challenged to pursue to either stop, or help, the enigmatic woman known as Number One.
What really brought this book home for me was the fact that the central characters were actually NOT the stars of the Original series, but those of the quest that took place years ago. Sure they play an integral part of the story, but Kirks crew take a back seat for much of the book. You get a well done Star Trek story without the main cast.
Then there is Robert Petkoff.....I could hear each character come out in his voice. Kirk, Spock, Bones, Scotty, Sulu, Checkov, and even Uhura. I swear I was listening to an episode at times. Supremely well done, and well acted.
The ending will absolutely leave you wanting to jump into the next book right away.....speaking of which....time to put the headphones in and continue the story in book 2.

I'M A DOCTOR, I KNOW HOW TO KEEP A SECRET
MORE TRIAL, LESS ERROR, PLEASE
I agree with another reviewer, that this is easy listening. It is not overly complicated and is a little predictable in parts, but some twists, that I did not see coming. Star Trek fans will enjoy this most. I love the banter between Spock, Bones, and Kirk. In parts it was COl, Chuckle Out Loud. The Aliens are pretty cool, or should I say slippery.
I'LL MOURN LATER
I did have some problems with Uno, who was a main character. She is suppose to be the ultimate captain, but I found her to be making lots stupid decisions. She kind of cost the lives of nine officers and almost the Enterprise, as a young officer and The Federation, let her off the hook and to become a captain? I did not find her a logical captain.
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY IT'S SIZE
This is a full story in it's self, but it does lead to another episode and I will be buying that.
I thought he was pretty good. He does a good Kirk, Spock, Chekov and Scotty. His Sulu, Uhura and Computer voices are not so good, though.
