Introduction (blurb)

For almost three decades, millions of television viewers and moviegoers around the world have thrilled to the exciting adventures of the most successful science fiction creation of all time -- Star Trek®. And during all that time, William Shatner has portrayed Star Trek's most dynamic hero -- Captain James Tiberius Kirk, a gallant commander of the legendary Starship Enterprise and her crew.

Now William Shatner brings his unique blend of talents as an actor, writer, director, and producer, as well as bestselling author and creator of the acclaimed TekWar novels and television series, to tell the story only he can, of Captain Kirk's greatest adventure.

The time - six months prior to the launch of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B 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.

What arises from The Ashes of Eden is no less that a new understanding of one of science fiction's greatest heroes, and one of the most gripping - and personal - Star Trek® stories ever told.
