"I was surprised and delighted, of course, when the writers of the movie 'Star Trek' with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto said in several interviews that my book Best Destiny has inspired the plot. I developed the character of George Kirk, as requested by my editor at Pocket, for the book Final Frontier, then carried him on to Best Destiny, which was James Kirk's first adventure in deep space. Having James Kirk be a juvenile delinquent was also my development, and was inspired by a tall ship experience I had on a ship full of adjudicated teenagers, in a program then called Vision Quest.
Imagine my surprise when I watched the sequel to 'Star Trek,' which is 'Star Trek: Into Darkness.' I was again surprised when the plot of my first Trek book, Dreadnought!, was used as the core plot for the new movie. The writers very honorably showcased the line about "This new Dreadnought-class starship," spoken by the power-mad admiral who built a huge war vessel and was determined to start a war with the Klingons because he believed it was inevitable, and that's the plot of my book. I'm very flattered and glad I can continue inspiring new Star Trek adventures."
