The ship is crippled in orbit around a
dangerous, living, breathing planet, and a desperate
peace mission to the Orion Arm is stalled.
Kirk has never needed his crew more. But a lithe,
alien woman is casting a spell of
pacifism - and now mutiny - over the crew.
Suddenly Captain Kirk's journey for
peace has turned into a terrifying war - to
retake command of his ship!
Just from reading the back of the book,
you can tell this story has a more realistic plot.
Instead of saving the galaxy from the brink of war,
Kirk's task is retaking command of his ship.
A small task as far as the galaxy is concerned, but
all-important to our heroic captain.
It also shows us one of Kirk's greatest fears: losing command of his ship.
Some of the best episodes involved Kirk's command being threatened.
This story has the feel of an original series episode
and that made it enjoyable to read.
