She can't take much more of this, Captain. The closest variation came in " The Doomsday Machine ," when Spock reported to Commodore Decker that the deflector shields were at full power, then added, "They can't take much more of this. We can't handle it. The actual line of dialogue from the episode is "Millions will die who did not die before.

This page was last edited on 4 September , at But he is also a man deeply in love with his wife - and Teilani is dying. To save her life, Kirk is prepared to compromise his ideals and enter into his most dangerous alliance yet. Battling Captain Jean-Luc Picard and a new generation of Starfleet heroes, Kirk must guide Tiberius to a long-abandoned First Federation base which conceals a power so great it will enable Tiberius to conquer the mirror universe - and his own.
But on that journey Kirk uncovers long-hidden secrets that raise the stakes far beyond the mere survival of family and friends. At the heart of their quest, something else is waiting: an object from a civilisation whose technology is far more advanced than any Kirk or Tiberius could hope to acquire, placed there for Kirk's eyes only by mysterious aliens who appear to have influenced life within the galaxy over eons of time - a message from the Preservers Get A Copy.

Aug 09, Dan rated it liked it Shelves: star-trek , shatnarrative. A fine conclusion to the Mirror Universe Shatner trilogy, but nothing extremely groundbreaking. The usual tropes are here, and the plot itself didn't completely wow me. I was fascinated by the revelations about the Preservers and role they play in creating the multiverse, but the fact that the conclusions the story comes to don't jive well with what is established about them in canon doesn't sit extremely well with me.
May 24, Cherie rated it it was amazing Shelves: published-since , series. Good and evil are not always what they seem, but friendship and love and family CAN overcome loss. What really struck me within this trilogy was the artful weaving of the stories and characters of the TV episodes that I watched for so many years. I have the story line and the back ground in my head and heart and am ready to pick up where I accidently started the last trilogy seven books ago.

Do be aware that this is the third book in a trilogy, beginning with Spectre and then Dark Victory. Kirk, Spock, and McCoy have survived into this time period. McCoy is very old, of course, and Spock a I liked this quite a lot, even though one aspect of the ending seemed highly unlikely to me.

McCoy is very old, of course, and Spock as well, although Vulcans are much longer lived than Humans so it doesn't show that much on him. As told in other books, Kirk took a short-cut into this future and is still relatively young. The trilogy also involves an interaction with the Mirror Universe, and we get to see a number of our Federation's counterparts throughout the three books, including Tiberius, Kirk's opposite, who plays a very prominent role.
These three books did a good, fun job with it. Preserver also reveals the reason why the two universes split in the first place, and I found it rather charming. Sep 16, David rated it it was ok.
Very frustrating conclusion to the Mirror Universe trilogy. I will say this, Shatner and his ghost writers really dug deep in TOS mythology. The Mirror Universe angle had great potential, but then they took a right turn by bringing the Preservers into the story. Spoilers: Again, I still struggle with Teilani. I just never felt she worked in the series.
Her death at the end felt telegraphed and unnecessary. And then there is Tiberius, the evil Mirror universe counterpart to Kirk. In his universe, Very frustrating conclusion to the Mirror Universe trilogy. In his universe, he ruled the despotic Terran Empire, that would give the Empire a run for its money.
He destroyed worlds, enslaved species, and murdered on a whim. And he is released to go back to the Mirror Universe at the end of the book. Apparently Kirk making one nice gesture to him is enough to change him, nevermind the countless atrocities he committed. I guess Starfleet JAG is a bit lenient. Jan 19, Michael rated it it was amazing. This is the sixth in a series of six books actually, two trilogies.
This series was my introduction to Star Trek novels, and I very much enjoyed these books. I actually read them out of order by mistake, and then re-read the whole thing in the correct order. Good stuff for the avid Trek fan! A very satisfying conclusion to the series. Note: if you think Shatner really wrote these books, you don't know much about publishing. His ghost writers, the Reeves-Stevenses, deserve the kudos here. Wonderful This trilogy is so amazing! It takes any reader to places unexpected, tragic, exciting and you get to do it all in the company of old friends.
These books spun a story beyond what I could have expected.

They left me satisfied, tho sorry it ended and, of course, wanting more. A wonderful Star Trek story, especially because I haven't indulged in the written Star Trek universe in quite a while. Feb 12, Anja Braun rated it it was amazing Shelves: science-fiction.
To those who say William Shatner is not a good writer well I have to disagree very much.. Every book I have read thus far has been very interesting and this one was no exception.. This one I believe is the last of this particular series. James makes a deal to save his wife and he does even though at the end circumstances arise again. Who or what are the preservers?
While trying to find out this answer James learns something that could wipe out a universe. Will it be saved? I can't say this book has a To those who say William Shatner is not a good writer well I have to disagree very much..
I can't say this book has a happy ending.. But no matter Kirk at last is at peace and happy.. This is a goal we all should want and we all should attain. To be happy and at peace.. I will read this again soon.. May 04, Rob rated it really liked it. This is a trilogy that starts to make you think that being lost isn't so bad. William Shatner exposes some of that character that the rest of the acting crew refer too often in their memoirs, about the Great and powerful Captain Kirk trying to overshadow all others.
Spock has emotional moments that would make Lenard Nimoy Cringe, Kirk even considers how if he has limits of what he could do, He has not yet found them, Barf! This is a Good Read. Sep 29, Lee Bartholomew rated it really liked it. An interesting book although he jumps forward in time alot. I'm not fond of book reviews but just tidbits I didn't like otherwise it was an okay conclusion to the series.
Still better than the spinoff movies of late after Nemesis. The last bit with Zef and Lily totally didn't need to be there. But the rest was well done albeit with one major spoiler which I'll just keep down somewhere. Sep 04, Kyle rated it it was amazing. Fantastic story line. Had me engaged for all 3 books of this mirror universe story. And I was genuinely surprised by the outcome.
I would recommend anyone to read these books. I want to read more about the preservers.

The blending of the different generations of Star Trek characters is seamless. Oct 22, Virgunia Corley rated it it was amazing. I didn't expect it to end the way it did. I wont spoil it for people that haven't read it. This is not great literature. It's something yo read without thinking. For trek fans a good time had by all.
