When the queen of an evil space empire kidnaps Captain Proton''s faithful secretary Constance Goodheart, it''s only the first step in her diabolical plan to conquer the Incorporated Planets. It soon becomes clear that there is more to her plot than meets the eye when, on the very edge of death, Captain Proton is saved by a power Not Of This Universe. Caught in an eons-old fight between two alien races, who can Captain Proton trust? No one -- not even his sidekick, ace reporter Buster Kincaid.

Read from the Book

Chapter One: A Door Opens The Interspacial Cross-Galactic Door opened about two feet behind Constance Goodheart''s chair as she leaned forward to daintily sip her soup, a chicken bisque flavored with the thick richness of the Jovian Emir plant. The Door opened with a faint sucking sound, as if Constance had made a rude noise with her soup, which she never would have done. In all the years Constance had been Captain Proton''s secretary, he had never heard her make a rude noise. Lots of screams, but never, ever rude noises. That type of thing was just not in her nature. With a second rude noise, the Interspacial Cross-Galactic Door shimmered, then stabilized just above the carpet, covering everything with a faint blue tinge. Captain Proton had reserved the private dining room of the Moon''s most famous restaurant, Tranquillity Fine Dining, just for the occasion of having a nice, quiet dinner with his secretary, Constance Goodheart. With so much going on around the galaxy, with so many problems, it had been a long time since they had had a dinner together when they could just sit and talk. Both Captain Proton and Constance had been looking forward to the evening and the wonderful food always served by Chef Henry of Tranquillity. Now it was ruined! "Move!" Captain Proton shouted at Constance as the rude noise made him look up and he saw the door. He instantly recognized it for an Interspacial Door from the shape and the blue tint of everything close by. Such doors were very expen

From Our Editors

The holodeck adventures of Captain Proton are brought to life in this illustrated homage to sci-fi pulp magazines. Dean Wesley Smith recreates the style of 1940s noir brilliantly in Star Trek: Voyager, Captain Proton! It is a space-age melodrama involving the Queen of the Fems Fatale and the Captain's faithful secretary in a bewildering kidnapping. It also includes short stories featuring Constance and ace reporter Buster Kincaid. The thrilling pace and story will even appeal to readers who don't do that thing with their fingers.
