THE STARSHIP TRAP

By:  Mel Gilden

En route to an important diplomatic reception,
the U.S.S. Enterprise suddenly is set upon by
a Klingon warship.  This unprovoked assault,
Kirk discovers, is in response to what the
Klingon ship's captain claims are recent
Federation attacks on several Klingon vessels
which have disappeared.

Managing to secure a truce, Captain Kirk
reaches the reception only to find out it is not
just Klingon ships that are disappearing, but
Federation vessels, Romulan Birds of Prey, and
ships from almost every known race are
vanishing without a trace.

Now, Captain Kirk and the crew of the
Starship Enterprise must determine the fate of
the missing ships before the entire known
galaxy is drawn into a deadly conflict.



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


I find it very annoying when an author feels the need to
introduce the main characters to us at the beginning of the story.
I think if a person is reading a Star Trek novel then they already know
who Mr. Spock is.  That's just a personal "pet peeve."

This story held my interest, but beginning a novel with
a Klingon ship suddenly appearing and accusing the Federation
of something is not a very imaginative way to start a novel.
