Default it's only my opinion but...

Celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, tennis star Martina Navratilova, and even William Shatner, have all had ghostwriters help with creating literary works in their name. But, William Shatner is one of the very few celebrities who actually acknowledge that they had ghostwriters help create his works.

I was kind of disapointed with some of his books. Wasnt what I expected. The only book I have enjoyed of his would only be his academy book dating back to thier younger days before star fleet.

I thought he had messed up alot of events in the trek universe with his books. He twisted it so his character would pop up in the middle of no where when you least expect it.

How can Kirk be so OOC in books written by Shatner? The Kirk we saw on screen would've never stopped wanting to have adventures because of some woman, no matter how hot she was.

And he's too damn heoric, and always in the right. The books are good reads, but really over the top.

Cool

The TekWar books were ghost written by/in conjunction with sci fi pro Ron Goulart...

The Stevenses have been with Shat since the start on the Kirk books, but have only recently really been given their due credit. Their names are on the cover of the latest, "Star Trek: Academy - Collision Course," which I started a separate thread about and it's parallels with the upcoming movie. Outside of the fact they changed Kirk's father's name to George Joseph Kirk and that he retired as a non-com and never served on the Enterprise, I liked the book a lot and am looking forward to Part 2.

I'd rather hear the story of how Kirk and Spock met from the man who was Captain Kirk himself rather than from a guy who admits he was never much of a Star Trek fan and another who professes to be a Star Trek fan but thinks the way to update the Trek universe is to change everything.
