Kirk and his crew face certain death... while journeying deep into their own pasts!

SummaryEdit

From the back cover 
A freak shuttlecraft accident - and suddenly Captain Kirk and most of his senior officers find themselves adrift in space, with no hope of rescue, no hope of repairing their craft, or restoring communications - with nothing, in short, but time on their hands.
Time enough for each to tell the story of the Kobayashi Maru - the Starfleet Academy test given to command cadets. Nominally a tactical exercise, the Kobayashi Maru is in fact a test of character revealed in the choices each man makes - and does not make.
Discover how Starfleet Cadets Kirk, Chekov, Scotty, and Sulu each faced the Kobayashi Maru...and became Starfleet officers.

AppendicesEdit

InformationEdit

On the cover of the book, the USS Tritium is shown, having been modeled based on a painting by Rick Sternbach originally created for the TOS reference: Spaceflight Chronology. Which ship it might represent from the story is unclear, although it seems implied that the Tritium image might represent the SS Kobayashi Maru herself.
