For almost three decades, William Shatner has portrated STAR TREK's gallant commander of the legendary Starship Enterprise and her crew. Now William Shatner brings his unique blend of talents as actor, writer, director, and producer, 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 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 specter of retirement and a life devoid of challenge and excitment. 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 recapture his youth.

At 62, Captain James T. Kirk is a disgruntled hero when his first love, the Enterprise, is reduced to war-game maneuvers by his diabolical archenemy, Androvar Drake, now commander in chief. Kirk resigns his commission to help the seductive young Teilani. The fact that her world needs saving and that she can purchase the Enterprise for Kirk makes her all the more alluring. Suspicious of Kirk's motives, Spock and McCoy join the rest of Kirk's original crew aboard the Excelsior, which is traveling to the Klingon-Romulan world of Chal. There Kirk has abandoned common sense to chase the illusion of youth: a mission, a purpose in life, and an invigorating love life with Teilani. Their age difference doesn't matter because exposure to the planet's atmosphere reverses the aging process. Plot a little too pat? Turns out that it's a psychological setup by a demonic faction within Starfleet to lure Kirk into revealing the secret of this paradise of eternal youth. Excelsior reaches orbit, Kirk comes to his senses, and evil is, at least temporarily, thwarted. The "real" Kirk--Shatner--with the help of Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, adds a satisfying, commercial-free, escapist episode to the apparently endless Star Trek series..
