The planet Sanctuary - A fabled world in
unexplored space which is thought to be the last
refuge of the persecuted, home to both the justly
and unjustly accused. Though its name has been
translated into every language in the galaxy,
Starfleet has never known its exact location.
When the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise is
assigned to capture a dangerous criminal named
Auk Rex, their pursuit takes them to an
unexplored sector of space. Captain Kirk,
Mr. Spock, and Dr. McCoy continue the pursuit in a
shuttlecraft, following Auk Rex to the surface of
the planet, Sanctuary. Soon, Kirk and his crew are
locked in a life and death struggle on the
mysterious planet, which harbors deadly secrets
and never releases its visitors.
Although the idea of a "Sanctuary" type planet has
been done before, this one has enough surprises to keep you
interested and certainly goes into the most detail.
You'll be shocked at what the planet's inhabitants are
doing to the visitors who drop in! Also, the way
in which Kirk and company get off the planet is certainly unique.
I'm not spoiling it for you . . . you know they have to
make it back to the ship by the end of the book.
A very entertaining novel by one of the few male Trek authors.
