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 now how Starfleet Cadets Kirk, Chekov, Scotty, and Sulu each faced the Kobayashi Maru...and became in turn Starfleet officers.

A fun read
I had a great time reading this book. Kirk’s Kobayashi Maru experience was something I was familiar with, but Chekov’s, Sulu’s, and Scotty’s experience with the Kobayashi Maru were just as, if not more, exciting than Kirk’s. I caught myself smiling throughout the entire book. This book definitely gets my recommendation.
