THE ABODE OF LIFE

By: Lee Correy

The citizens of Mercan cannot conceive of
worlds beyond their own.  Their sun,
Mercaniad, is prone to deadly, radioactive
flare-ups, and the Mercans have
organized their life around the need to survive
the Ordeal - until a strange visitor
appears from out of nowhere . . .

The Enterprise, badly crippled and in desperate
need of repairs, must seek help from a
people who cannot believe in its existence.
Mercaniad is about to blow, and James
Kirk faces an impossible choice: to attack the
sun itself and save his ship and
crew - or let a people live in peace, in
the only world they know . . .

THE ABODE OF LIFE



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


The basic premise of this story: the ship is damaged
and in need of repairs, has been done and redone too
many times, although when this novel was written
it hadn't been and this novel handles it pretty well.

The cover art shows Kirk and Spock in "Motion Picture"
style uniforms with "The Cage" style phasers
which I thought was kind of strange.

Oh well, I enjoyed the story.  You really get the
feeling that you're on an alien planet dealing with aliens.
