By: D. C. Fontana
Here is a very special Star Trek novel - from the
woman consistently voted by the fans as their favorite
writer from the original Star Trek television series!
D.C. Fontana, writer of such classic Star Trek
episodes as "Journey to Babel" and "This Side of
Paradise," here brings us the never-before-told story of
a very young Mr. Spock, on his first mission aboard
the U.S.S. Enterprise. You'll also meet Captain
Christopher Pike and his enigmatic first officer
"Number One" (previously seen only in the original
Star Trek pilot "The Cage"), as well as the ship's
brand new engineering officer, Montgomery Scott.
Vulcan's Glory is the tale of Spock's struggle to
reconcile his many obligations - those forced on him by
his Vulcan heritage, and those chosen by him upon his
enlistment in Starfleet - to balance the wishes of others
against the desires of his own heart.
Captain Pike's first appearance in a novel, and it's an excellent one.
This is a great idea for a back-story
and who better to write it than D.C. Fontana!
I'm sure you'll enjoy this story,
Dorothy Fontana knows her Trek!
