An Interesting ST Story

This story by Shatner is interesting mainly because if takes place in STOS time and fits in well with the TV show. The story plays out like many ST novels and works well with Shatner's reading.

As a fan of STOS novels I have been wanting to read Shatner's work for a while, and this book did not disappoint me.

The "Stories" In-Between The Stories

All of us who were thrilled by the escapades of the crew of the USS ENTERPRISE remain so to this day---but what about the "side escapades" of those crew members? what adventures did they encounter when they were not on the ENTERPRISE? Shatner gives us a "behind-the-scenes" look into what transpired with him & his crew that expands the Star Trek universe exponentially & also how the actions of those involved do make an impact on the shaping of what I would call "Universal Destiny". "The Ashes Of Eden" takes us on that journey during the "Generations" story & tells the "side escapades" of Cap't. Kirk from the viewpoint of one who knew him best---Spock. I enjoyed this sideline story immensely & would encourage all to acquire the sideline stories to the main stories of the Star Trek Universe & to "Boldly Go---Where We Have Yet To Venture".
