"Are you willing to settle for an ordinary life? Or do you think you were meant for something better? Something special?"
One grew up in the cornfields of Iowa, fighting for his independence, for a way out of a life that promised only indifference, aimlessness and obscurity.
"You will forever be a child of two worlds, capable of choosing your own destiny. The only question you face is, which path will you chose?"
The other grew up on the jagged cliffs of the harsh Vulcan desert, fighting for acceptance, for a way to reconcile the logic he was taught with the emotions he felt.
In the far reaches of the galaxy, a machine of war bursts into existence in a place and time it was never meant to be. On a mission of retribution for the destruction of his planet, its half-mad captain seeks the death of every intelligent being, and the annihilation of every civilized world.
Kirk and Spock, two completely different and unyielding personalities must find a way to lead the only crew, aboard the only ship, that can stop him.
"The wait is over."
This book is, as expected, a straightforward retelling of the 2009 movie. The most enjoyable parts to me were the places where the author explored concepts that were not appropriate for an action movie. The book would have, could have been so much better if another 100 pages had been devoted to such concepts and back-story. The book gets another full star from me just because of the delightful and unexpected twist contained in the last paragraph. Bravo, Mr. Foster! Next time, stay a little longer.
