The Sackers. In all Captain James T. Kirk's
travels, he has never found a race more
universally shunned and abhorred. Their mere
appearance causes most Federation
members to become violently ill.
Now the Sackers have performed a deed whose
brutality matches their horrifying exterior.
They have stolen a revolutionary new scientific
device - murdering an entire race in the
process - and used it to create a rip in the fabric
of space, a hole through which another
universe is rapidly leaking. Unless Captain Kirk
and the crew of the Enterprise can find a way
to stop the new universe's expansion, it will
consume - and utterly destroy - our own.
The description of the Sackers sounds a lot like
the Medusans, don't you think?. I don't like alien rip-offs.
And that name . . . Sackers . . . sounds like a football team.
I think the author could have done better.
An unremarkable story.
