Gamma Xaridian - a peaceful Federation research
colony that becomes the third Federation world to
suffer a brutal attack at the hands of a mysterious
alien fleet. With Lt. Uhura gone on an important
mission of her own, Captain Kirk and the USS
Enterprise are dispatched to investigate the attacks,
only to find the planets completely devastated.
When another nearby colony is attacked, the USS
Enterprise is ready and encounters a fleet of quick,
small and deadly ships. Though Kirk and his crew
manage to turn the raiders away, the USS Enterprise
is severely damaged and the aliens escape.
As Kirk and his crew prepare for their next encounter
with the raiders, Mr. Spock makes a startling discovery
about the purpose behind the alien attacks - a
purpose that, if realized, could have deadly
consequences for the Federation and
the U.S.S. Enterprise . . .
Wow, three authors! At first I thought the story
would be rather "chopped up" because three different
people had a hand in writing it, but that's not the case.
It's a pretty good story...
... but why is there always a powerful alien fleet
that can kick the Enterprise's butt?
This happens so much that you'd think Starfleet
would start sending out its starships in at least groups of two.
I know starships are expensive to build, but the
Klingons and Romulans both send out ships in groups.
Come on Starfleet . . . Get with it!
(Yes, I know it's just fiction!)
Anyway, give this book a try.
I enjoyed it and you probably will too!
