If you think you know how it all began, think again...

Young Jim Kirk wants nothing to do with Starfleet, and never wants to leave Earth. In the summer of 2249, he's a headstrong seventeen-year-old barely scraping by in San Francisco, haunted by horrific memories from his past.

In the same city, a nineteen-year-old alien named Spock is determined to rise above the emotional turmoil of his mixed-species heritage. He's determined to show his parents he has what it takes to be Vulcan -- even if it means exposing a mysterious conspiracy at the heart of the Vulcan Embassy, stretching to the farthest reaches of the Federation's borders. There, a chilling new threat has arisen to test the Federation's deepest held belief that war is a thing of the past and that a secure future can be forged through peaceful means alone. But it is in San Francisco, home to Starfleet Academy, where that threat will be met by two troubled teenage boys driven to solve the mystery that links them both.

In time, the universe will come to know these young rebels as Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock...two of the Federation's greatest heroes. Yet before they were heroes, they were simply conflicted teenagers, filled with raw ambition and talent, not yet seasoned by wisdom and experience, searching for their own unique directions in life -- a destiny they'll discover on one fateful night in San Francisco, when two lives collide, and two legends are born.

Star Trek: Academy -- Collision Course sets the stage for an exciting new era of Star Trek adventure, and for the first time reveals Kirk and Spock as they were, and how they began their journey to become the Kirk and Spock we know today.

  • I was hoping for another book to follow. Oh, well. It was very interesting to see how Spock & Kirk met. I was amazed at how a juvenile delinquent Kirk was and how his brother Sam was just as screwed-up as he was. Spock was just a rebel (I would have never thought that) and it ties in with the TOS episode: Journey to Babel. And we see glimpses of Kirk when he was on Tarsus IV and how it relates to the TOS episode: Conscience of a King. But don't take my word for it, read it, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

  • This was an extremely well-written book, a very enjoyable read with good characterizations, pacing, and plot. And there are definitely some good connection points between it and the established Star Trek background story. But much of the storyline simply doesn't seem to work in terms of the established character histories, so it's best to pretend that it is a story from some alternate timeline, like the new movie series separate from the original series but separate from that as well, rather than trying to accept it as canonical. If one does that, it's great fun and a wild ride, but if one tries to fit it into the strictly original, canonical timeline, it falls flat on several counts.

    For one thing, the personality of young Jimmy Kirk, while not completely out of character, seems more like the Jim Kirk in the new movie series than the impression that we've always had of the background for the character from the original series; granted, attempts are made to explain away that wildness and lack of respect for authority as traumatic remnants of his experiences on Tarsus IV under governor Kodos. And such a reaction to such a traumatic set of events would certainly not be unreasonable, but in no discussion of Kirk's past at any point in the series do we ever hear any hint that such was actually ever the personality of young Jimmy Kirk. Further, if he HAD been like that, and Spock had known him then, it seems hard to imagine that it would never have come up in conversation during the series. Nor does it seem plausible that Spock is only two years older than Kirk; I've seen other places (including the new movie series) where it is claimed that they are that close to contemporaries, but I find it extremely implausible. Given the greater lifespan of Vulcans, it seems likely that Spock is older than that, and unlikely that he and Kirk would have been at the academy together. Further, it seems implausible that if Kirk WAS that severely traumatized by his experiences on Tarsus IV, to the extent that he became such a rebel-without-a-cause smartass wiseguy and hater of all things Starfleet, and spent three years being that person, that he could have turned himself around/been turned around so totally and so quickly as to leave no trace of it on his academy record, and any trace of that sort of attitude would have left him a significantly less respected member of Starfleet, to the point where he would have become the youngest ever promoted to captain in the history of the fleet. Bureaucracies (even apparently non-hidebound bureaucracies, like Starfleet is supposed to be) do not rapidly promote smartasses who hate authority, no matter how talented they are.

    Yes, if this was the character's background, it would explain his willingness to flout the rules on many occasions in the series. And while he certainly has a tendency to be more concerned with what's right than the regulations, I don't see him as being THIS much of a rebel at seventeen.

    Still, the explanation of the origin of the dispute between Spock and his father that we saw in "Journey to Babel" worked for me, at least mostly. But it did seem to me that his early experiences with Kirk in this book, if they had actually happened, would have left Spock much less stiff than we saw him in the early episodes in the series; his integration of his human and Vulcan sides would have been more advanced than we saw if it had started as early as this.

    So all in all, as a story that I don't try to fit in to the established Star Trek history, either in the original series of the new movies, this book is worth five stars. But I would only give it three if I wasn't willing to grant it the "alternate timeline" excuse.

  • I totally enjoyed reading this book showing how James Kirk and Mr. Spock met, slowly became friends and started their Starfleet careers. I read it years ago and loved it then so when I purchased my Kindle, it was on my list of books to have for my library. I can hear Kirk's and Mr. Spock's voices while reading their encounters in the book. Kirk's attitude and Spock's "lack" of attitude show early in their lives and (I think) is a big part of how they became and stayed life long friends. A must read for any old Star Trek fan. My biggest regret is that the sequel to this book never saw the light of day.

  • This is an important book for at least two reasons. First, it fills in much detail of the events on Tarsus four and Kodos the executioner. The original series was written so well and with so much imagination that entire novels are spun from just the background information of a single episode. This is one such example, Burning Dreams is another.

    Second, it is written after all by William Shatner and portrays a young James Kirk as Shatner would like to have him seen. It is in a sense Jim Kirk through the eyes of Shatner with all his cynicism, strength, humor, and flaws. It also gives a good deal of background about Kirk's brother Sam, father Joe, and the familial relationships at play.

    I give it four stars cause the action takes a while to get started, but for the reasons above it takes on an importance all its own, and is almost a necessary reference work.

  • Bottom line, I really liked this book and am looking forward to the next in the series.

    A little outrageous toward the end, but very good nonetheless. Nice job tying in one of ST:TOS' most intriguing story lines - Kodos the Executioner (from "The Conscience of the King").

    IMHO, Shatner/Reeves-Stevens wrote a better story than what J.J. Abrams used to reboot "Star Trek." BUT Abrams' story was the better choice for a movie.

    I like Star Trek and I like that there are different versions of "what happened" (or is that "what will happen"?). Thus, I don't get wrapped up in competing ST universes and so long as folks don't abuse the "official canon" too much, I say "bring it on!" One of life's truisms - one can never get enough Star Trek!

  • This is not quite part of the series Shatner and his collaborators have written for the original Enterprise crew, but it's a good read nevertheless. Kirk and Spock meet pre-Starfleet Academy, as older teens, each rebellious in his own way, and each in trouble with the authorities. They do not become friends, but they do become allies, and it doesn't really foreshadow the official canon shown later on in their lives. But this is a rousing good action story nonetheless, and holds the readers attention from the very beginning and all throughout.

  • I personally prefer anything involving the Garfield-Reeves Stevens team and this story is no exception. Mr. Shatner was prudent in teaming with the best Star Trek authors working today.

    If you loved Federation, and Prime Directive get this book (series) and enjoy the ride. Maximum Warp.
