The Return by William Shatner (with Garfield and Judith Reeves-Stevens)

The cover may say William Shatner to amp up the geek factor (hence, salability), but The Return is 99 percent Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens.

If you’re looking a terrific Trek crossover story outside of fanfic then look no further. The Return picks up where Star Trek: Generations left off, chronicling Captain Kirk’s resurrection at the hands of the Borg, who have aligned with the Romulans to defeat the Federation.

Aside from the entire Next Gen cast, the book also reunites the original trio of Kirk, Spock and McCoy and even has an appearance by Julian Bashir during a stopover at DS9. The action is strong and all the characters and settings have that Reeves-Stevens touch. All in all, one of the most well-written and entertaining Trek books I’ve ever read.
