Transporting a diplomatic party is nothing new
for Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the
Enterprise - but this particular mission promises
trouble from the start.
For one thing, the wife of the Federation ambassador
on this trip is an old flame of Kirk's - and she's
determined to see that they resume their romance
where they left off. Of course, when another
ambassador presents Kirk with three of his wives,
finding time for the first romance, let alone any of his
other duties, is going to prove nearly impossible.
When a diplomatic attaché is murdered, and the
prime suspect is one of his crew members, Kirk
begins to wish that Starfleet Command would
consider using some other starship to ferry
diplomatic personnel . . .
My first 2 thoughts were:
Oh no, another old flame of Kirk's.
(How many can one person have?)
. . . and a "Journey to Babel" rip-off.
And basically, I was right.
Not one of the better novels.
