(Text taken from the February 1970 edition)
Captain Kirk and the crew of the starship
Enterprise find themselves in the middle of an
undeclared war waged by the Klingon Empire...
The Organians should be consulted about
the war but their entire planet has
disappeared - or been destroyed...
Mr. Spock entered the transporter chamber.
His image would be flashed to Organia by
the huge machine's faster-than-light
tachyons. But the experiment failed.
Suddenly there were two Mr. Spocks.
One of them had to be destroyed...
BUT WHICH ONE?
This novel was written by the man who adapted
the original 79 episodes into book form.
Unfortunately, he died in 1975.
This story is typical of early Trek novels.
Less 'polished' than most novels published today,
and of much shorter length.
You can probably find this book at a second
hand book store if you feel you must read it.
I think my rating says it all . . .
