Publisher's Summary

As James T. Kirk prepares to retire from a long and illustrious Starfleet career, events in a distant part of the Federation draw him back to a part of the galaxy he had last visited as a young man, a mysterious world called Faramond whose name takes Kirk on a journey back to his youth.
At 16, Kirk is troubled, estranged from his father, and has a bleak future. However, a trip into space with Kirk's father, George, and Starfleet legend Captain Robert April changes James Kirk's life forever, when a simple voyage becomes a deadly trap. Soon Kirk and his father find themselves fighting for their lives against a vicious and powerful enemy.
Before the voyage ends, father and son will face life and death together, and James T. Kirk will get a glimpse of the future and his own Best Destiny.

A great adventure for a young James T. Kirk

Would you listen to Star Trek: Best Destiny (Adapted) again? Why?

I used to have this story on casset but it got chewed up in the player. I like this story because it features a young James Kirk having problems with his father and trying to figure out who he is. When his father takes him on a mission with Captain Robert April that turns into a dangerous struggle against pirates, young Kirk learns the meaning of loyalty and friendship. This will ultimately make him the man he will become, a starship captain.

What did you like best about this story?

You get to see the relationship between Kirk and his father and learn more about Kirks past.

What about James Doohan’s performance did you like?

As always James Doohan does a great job as narrator. He brings the characters to life and draws you into the story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was one of my favorite stories. I enjoyed listening to it many times.

Any additional comments?

This is a sequel to Final Frontier, featuring George Kirk (James Kirks father) and Captain Robert April. (Also narrated by James Doohan).
