Captain Kirk and the Enterprise join the Klingons
to avert disaster in the Taygeta V system -
where a time / space warp has swallowed a spaceship
without a trace.
Spock suspects a link between the anomaly
and the inhabitants of Taygeta, semi aquatic creatures
killed for the jewel-like tears secreted
at the moment of death.
But a mutinous Klingon officer threatens
the vital mission, as a desperate Kirk and Spock
race to save the Taygetians, the Federation - and the entire universe!
This is the first novel to feature Uhura in a major role.
It's a good story, nothing special, but it's worth reading.
It gets a bit over-descriptive conserning the aliens.
Sorry, not much else to say.
