An Enterprise shuttle is forced to crash land
in a violent storm on the barren
planet Sigma 1212. Spock, McCoy and
Kailyn, the beautiful heir to the Shaddan throne,
survive in the near disaster.
Now, persued by primitive hunters
and a band of Klingon scouts, they must
reach the mountain where the
fabulous dynastic crown is hidden.
With the help of Spock and McCoy, and her own
fantastic mental powers, Kailyn must prove that
she alone is the true heir to the throne.
If they fail, they will open the door for
Klingon takeover of the whole
quadrant - and the galaxy's hope to live long
and prosper will fall in the shadow
of a cruel tyranny!
The Enterprise guys travelling with a woman in a shuttlecraft...
Can you say, "Metamorphosis"?
Seriously though, the similarity ends there,
I just thought I'd mention it.
But don't you hate it when they lift story ideas from episodes?
Anyway, this one is typical of early Star Trek novels.
Not bad, but not that great either.
