When Captain Kirk and his crew are ordered
to Alnath II to challenge the deadliest
Klingon starship Terror, they're ready for
anything - or so they think.
But the defenseless Vulcan crew
of a Federation science ship has been wiped out.
The remaining member of the Alnath II mission
have discovered a fabulous ancient city,
but their report doesn't make sense.
The Klingon battlecruiser has the Enterprise
in its sights, and ready to destroy it.
But Captain Kirk can't seem to make
decisions. Spock has started to
throw temper tantrums. And Chekov has
disobeyed vital orders.
The crew of the Enterprise are losing
their minds . . . one by one . . . all victims of . . .
The Klingon Gambit
This is the first Star Trek novel I ever read.
I'd been a fan for years but had never read
any of the books. One day my Dad came home
with this book (I was around 13 or 14) saying that
he thought I'd enjoy it. Well, I did enjoy it,
and so began my collection of Star Trek novels!
