DOCTOR'S ORDERS

By: Diane Duane

When Dr. McCoy grumbles once too often about the
way the Enterprise ought to be run, Captain Kirk
decides to leave the doctor in command while he
oversees a routine diplomatic mission.  Kirk beams
down to a strange planet nicknamed "Flyspeck"
to negotiate its admission into the Federation,
leaving Dr. McCoy to enjoy his new authority.

However, the doctor soon learns that command is a
double-edged sword when Kirk disappears without
a trace.  Desperately trying to locate his captain,
McCoy comes under pressure from Starfleet to
resolve the situation immediately.  Matters go from
bad to worse when the Klingons arrive and stake
their own claim on Flyspeck.

Then another, more deadly power threatens them all,
and suddenly, Dr. McCoy and the Enterprise find
themselves pitted against an alien fleet
in a battle they have no hope of winning.



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


I think it's kind of silly to leave the doctor in charge of the ship.
He's got way too many responsibilities on a ship
the size of the Enterprise without being in command as well.

Mr. Spock would have taken over when a crisis arose.

Another thing . . . what's with the name "Flyspeck"?
Kind of a goofy name if you ask me.

Don't get me wrong, this story had its moments,
and I mostly enjoyed it.
