FROM THE DEPTHS

By: Victor Milan

Okeanos, a water world settled centuries ago
by a group of Federation separatists, is now
rocked by a power struggle between the
natives and the ex-Federation colony.  When
the U.S.S. Enterprise is sent beyond the
Federation's boundaries to the planet to act
as mediators, they are surprised to find a
group of Klingons already serving as the
natives' advisors.

The volatile situation rapidly deteriorates
when one of Okeanos's great floating cities is
completely destroyed, and Captain Kirk is
arrested for sabotage.  Now at the center of a
deadly civil war, Mr. Spock and the crew
must race to free their captain as they face
the deadly secret hidden beneath Okeanos's
murky depths.



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


This one didn't impress me much.
It's basically just a Klingon / Federation interfere
type of story.  Kind of like "A Private Little War" from TOS.
However, being mediators in non-Federation matters is NOT
what the Enterprise should be doing.

And what's with the Federation separatists settling a world "centuries ago"?
It's only the 23rd century, which is only 2 centuries from now.
The Federation has only had interstellar travel for 2-1/2 centuries.
The way it's written makes it seem like 5 or 6 (or more) centuries ago.

I know, I know . . . I'm being picky,
but things like that bug me.
