It’s an interesting book. It’s trying to be a paranoid thriller and yet tries to twist it’s self into a early episodes of the Original Star Trek. I want to say I liked it, but that the same time I don’t.. I’m not to sure how to feel about this novel. I mean the characters are believable, the action is nice and smooth. Nothing about it is really forced on to you. I think my problem was at points it was way to slow for my liking. It follows the events of the episode called “What Are Little Girls Made Of?”.. The whole things is adequate Star Trek and nothing more. I think my problem is that it’s just to cookie cutter. One of the more fun events that happened in the books was the fight between Kirk and Romulans. Makeing Kirk team up with his enemy at the time to fight the Romulans was interesting idea and it played out well.
Sadly this is a rather forgettable novel and can bee over looked.
On a routine exploratory mission, the starship U.S.S. Hood picks up a distress signal from a research expedition though lost long ago, the expedition of Dr. Roger Korby, one of the centuries’ greatest scientific minds. Korby himself is dead, it seems, but his colleagues have made a most incredible discovery, a discovery they insist the Hood’s captain see for himself. Reluctantly, the captain agrees to beam down. Meanwhile, the crew of the Enterprise begins long-overdue shore leave on Tranquility Seven. James T. Kirk is looking forward to a few days of rest and relaxation, until what seems like a bizarre case of mistaken identity plunges Kirk into a whirlpool of mayhem and murder, and puts an inhuman stranger with his memories and abilities in command of the Enterprise.
