Captain Kirk and his crew are on a
mission to investigate the mysterious wave
of violence that has overtaken
the Helvans - revolutions, mass riots, horrible
tortures. But this chaos is all part
of an experiment by an unimaginable power
that soon grips even the crew of the Enterprise . . .
Captain Kirk is plagued by violent
hallucinations and removed from command.
Spock takes charge but his orders seem
irrational - even cruel.
Unless this terrible power can
be stopped, not only the Enterprise, but an
entire galaxy will be ensnared in the
deadly grip of the . . .
This was one of those novels that was
easy to put down and not pick up again for awhile,
although it's been so many years since I
read it that I don't recall any specific details of the story.
