Publisher's Summary

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 - 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 on their own abilities, and their growing friendship, to solve the mysterious deaths and protect one of Bajor's greatest living treasures.

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 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 spans space and time to present Captain Kirk's most personal, and most extreme, adventure.

Great continuation of Ashes of Eden series

I probably should have listened to this story 15 years ago. But somehow I lost track of Shatner's book series with my local library. I had some Audible points to use up. I glad I did so with this. As a fan of the podcast "The Seventh Rule", the DS9 elements of this story are a nice bonus.

Atrocious narration

One of the few audiobooks I just can’t finished. Shatner’s attempts at emulating characters other than himself are beyond awful.

Enjoyable, if forgettable, Shatner fan-fiction

I've always enjoyed listening to the "Shatnerverse" series of novels. Shatner isn't the best writer, but he is an excellent narrator and the production values of the audiobooks are impeccable. Plus, Shatner writes Old Kirk like he's a superhuman genius (presumably with a lush and completely natural head of hair) who must explain everything to his new sidekick Picard, which probably isn't meant to be as funny as I always find it to be. So, what could possibly be next after Kirk has been resurrected by the Borg and taken a trip to the Mirror Universe? Well, how about... a lightweight Bajoran murder mystery and a flashback story with the old crew that would have been an okay-at-best episode of the original series. ...Yep. That's it. Now, don't get me wrong, neither of the plot-lines are bad, it's the first book in a trilogy where things are being set up, and it's still an enjoyable way to spend 3 hours. However, the two plot-lines are only very loosely connected to each other and, quite frankly, it wasn't clear to me why the flashback story kept coming up. It makes sense at the start because Kirk is telling the story to Picard, but then it keeps going long after Kirk has stopped talking to Picard about it. Maybe the novel is structured differently so that things flow better, but I just didn't think it worked well in the abridged audiobook. Anyway, if you like Star Trek and you like Shatner, then you should get this. It really is as simple as that. Just don't let this be your introduction to the "Shatnerverse", because The Return and Mirror Universe trilogies are much better. Oh, and one more thing. Shatner clearly has Picard say "sabotage" while Kirk says "sabataage". If you know why that's so funny, then you should be a big enough fan to already own all the audiobooks.
