(From the publisher):
The time - six months prior to the launch of the
U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701B and the tragic loss of Captain James T. Kirk in deep space.
The place - Earth, where the galaxy's most
renowned hero must now face the spectre of
retirement and a life devoid of challenge and excitement.
But in the apparent twilight of his career, Kirk's path takes an unexpected turn when a
mysterious young woman offers him an irresistible adventure - a perilous voyage to an
uncharted planet where he will confront the
ultimate threat to the fragile peace between the
Federation and the Klingon Empire, and the
ultimate temptation - a chance to actually
recapture his youth.
Turning his back on his friends, Spock and McCoy, and hunted by Captain Sulu's U.S.S. Excelsior, Kirk soon stands alone as defender of a world of incredible vitality and sensual beauty where he must choose between conquering the gravest challenge of his career, or surrendering to the greatest passion of his life.
