Positively Trek 200: Book Club: Final Frontier by Diane Carey

The Secret First Mission of the 1701!


Space… the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship… um… we’ll get back to you on that!


In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Bruce and Dan discuss a classic Star Trek novel: Final Frontier by Diane Carey, featuring the very first mission of the NCC-1701, before she was even christened Enterprise! We learn all about Captain Robert April, Commander George Kirk (“Jimmy” Kirk’s father), and witness a clandestine mission that has been scrubbed from the history books!
