The Romulans attack the planet Gateway,
where Federation scientists are studying the Guardian
of Forever - the mysterious portal to the past.
The Enterprise must protect the Guardian -
or destroy it. But Spock has already
used the portal to journey to the past.
On the planet Sarpedion, 5000 years ago,
Spock knew a beautiful, primitive woman.
Now he has gone to meet his son!
Another one of my favorite novels.
What a surprise - it involves time travel!
I enjoy it when someone writes a sequel
to an original series episode, and that's what this is.
The episode "All Our Yesterdays" had Spock and McCoy
trapped in the planet Sarpedion's past where they met a
woman named Zarabeth. Spock was acting very odd and it was
assumed (but never shown) that he slept with her.
Well, he obviously DID and this novel is the result!
(Well, a BABY was the result, but you know what I mean)
A great story, wonderfully written.
Ann Crispin is one of the best classic Trek authors.
Read this book - you WON'T be disappointed!
The story continues again with novel #39 "Time For Yesterday"
