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.
..Show More »/>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.
