Competition turns deadly for Captain Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise.

SummaryEdit

From the book jacket
When a friendly, alien people called the Rey make contact with the Federation, they are thrilled to learn the galaxy has a large number of intelligent races. To bring the myriad cultures to their world, the Rey host a celebration – inviting spacefaring peoples to send representative ships to compete against one another and The Great Starship Race is born.
As the Federation's flagship, the USS Enterprise, under the command of Captain James T. Kirk, is sent to compete. But the event takes a dark turn when a Romulan warship arrives and demands to join the race. Soon, Kirk and the Romulan commander are engaged in a deadly game of cat and mouse, and, for Kirk and his crew, the race becomes a struggle for survival. Faced with treachery at every turn. Kirk must protect his ship from relentless attack and prevent the annihilation of an entire world.
