Well, given what a hoary old joke that is, it's gotta be a Peter David book...

Here's a clue:

Peter David took half the time to tell this story than he usually does.

Re: Trek Quote Game

This might give it away, here is another clue:

The blurb on the cover reads:
Captain Calhoun must face his own dark past!

^Well, that rules out my guess. The "half the time" clue made me think it was the NF short novel in Mirror Universe: Obsidian Alliances, but Calhoun isn't a captain there and it doesn't have a specific one-line blurb on the cover.

Re: Trek Quote Game

You have the right line of thinking there with the length of the book

Re: Trek Quote Game

Then you lost me. That's the only NF work I can think of at that length (there were the original four really short ones, but those were even shorter).
