FACES OF FIRE

By: Michael Jan Friedman

En route to Alpha Malurian Six to settle a dispute
between two religions, the USS Enterprise first
stops to do a routine check on the progress of a
terraforming colony on Beta Canzandia Three - a
colony whose inhabitants include Carol and David Marcus.

While Spock is left behind at the terraforming
colony to continue his scientific studies, the rest of
the crew heads to Alpha Malurian Six to find the
dispute has turned to war.

As Kirk, McCoy and Scotty search for a solution to
end the conflict, a ship piloted by a Klingon faction
arrives at the terraforming colony to take control
of the facility.  When colonists are imprisoned,
Spock and David must defeat the Klingons or face
certain death . . .



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


I suppose it was inevitable that when the characters
of Carol and David Marcus were introduced in the second
Trek movie, it wouldn't be long before they were
featured in a novel.

The author has put the Federation in the role of
"Galactic Police" by having the Enterprise
intervene in a dispute between two religions.
The Federation should stay out of stuff like that.
And so should future Trek novels.

The names for the two planets in this story
sound like they were lifted right out of a TNG story.
I don't like 'em.  If you don't agree - that's fine!
You're free to disagree.

Michael Jan Friedman is one of the best Trek authors,
but he missed the mark with this story.

Just to clarify, I have to say that the actual writing
is top-notch.  It's the story that's not great.
