A merchant ship's frantic S.O.S. sends the
Enterprise speeding to the rescue!
But the starship's mission of mercy soon
becomes a desperate struggle
for survival against a nightmarish enemy
Captain Kirk can neither identify
nor understand, an enemy he must defeat
without the aid of one of his most
For the Leonard McCoy Kirk knew is gone.
In his place stands a stranger - a man with
no memory of his Starfleet career, his family, his friends,
or the one thing James T. Kirk needs most of all . . .
Receiving a distress call isn't a very original way to begin a novel.
It's an over-used plot device that I'm sure most
Trek fans are tired of. However, I also understand
that's it's a quick way to get the story moving so
I usually don't have a problem with it.
Anyway, this was an average novel.
Nothing special, just ok.
