By: Michael Jan Friedman
On a routine exploratory mission, the Starship
USS Hood picks up a distress signal from a research
expedition thought lost long ago - the expedition of
Dr. Roger Korby, one of the centuries' greatest scientific
minds. Korby himself is dead, it seems, but his
colleagues have made a most incredible discovery - a
discovery they insist the Hood's captain see for himself.
Reluctantly, the captain agrees to beam down . . .
Meanwhile, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise
begins long overdue shore leave on Tranquility Seven.
James T. Kirk is looking forward to a few
days of rest and relaxation . . . until what seems
like a bizarre case of mistaken identity plunges
Kirk into a whirlpool of mayhem and murder.
And puts an inhuman stranger with his memories
and abilities in command of the Enterprise.
The first (and only) Trek novel to be named
after a Tim Horton's coffee!
(You might need to be Canadian to get that reference!)
Anyway . . .
I love it when a novel continues the
story from one of the original episodes!
This is a continuation of the episode
"What Are Little Girls Made Of?"
Just when you thought the story was over, a way
is found to bring the androids back. I won't
spoil it for you, but I will say that the way in which
the androids return is perfectly believable.
And you find out in the first few pages!
A very entertaining story with well written characters.
Michael Jan Friedman is an excellent author.
He really knows how to write Star Trek!
