A dispute over a planet and its primitive people
leads Captain Kirk and a Klingon Commander
to pit their ships against each other in battle.
But the fight is stopped by a mysterious and
powerful alien being named Weyland, who
decides to punish three Enterprise
crew members with their own history. He
places Sulu in feudal Japan during the period's
most important and bloody power struggle,
Scotty in 18th Century Scotland on the eve of
revolt, and Chekov in W.W.II Russia.
Now, the three time travelers must face
overwhelming dangers as they are pulled by
conflicting forces: their allegiance to their
homelands, their duty to the Federation they
serve, and the demands of history.
This one reminded me a bit of "Arena", at least at first.
Of course, it involved time travel so that grabbed my attention
right away. It's really four stories in one: the main story and
each crew member's adventure in their own past.
(Similar to "The Kobayashi Maru")
Each story is well done, and I found myself
not wanting any of them to end.
Overall, a very entertaining novel that I
found hard to put down!
