Captain Kirk encounters Klingons and nocturnal creatures
known as Strangers and the sun god himself in a journey of
incredible suspense . . .
Inside the hollow shell of a strange, remote planet Kirk and
the Enterprise crew discover a planet within a planet . . .
energized by a white dwarf star . . . a planet like a lost
Eden populated by a race of small, gentle, furred bipeds . . .
a planet falling toward a black hole to spectacular peril
and inescapable doom . . .

Captain's Log, Stardate 6532.1
While investigating rumors of renewed activity by
the Klingon Empire within the Galactic Core, the
Enterprise made contact with a shuttlecraft from
the USS Rickover, a starship presumed lost with all
hands over 20 years ago. The Lone occupant of that
shuttlecraft - Thomas Clayton, once my roommate at
Starfleet Academy, now the self-proclaimed chosen
son and favored prophet of a deity he calls Ay-nab.
I had planned on disregarding Clayton entirely -
until control of our engines was seized by an as-yet-
unexplained outside force . . . a force, Clayton insists,
that is now taking us to meet his god.
Sorry, but I don't really recall anything about this novel.
I'm giving it the average rating of 2 stars until
I get some time to re-read it.
