THE BETTER MAN

By: Howard Weinstein

When the planet Empyrea, a colony of genetically perfected
human beings, demands that the Federation remove a
science station which has been in place for nearly twenty
years, the starship Enterprise is assigned to transport to
the planet the Federation ambassador who negotiated with
the Empyreans long ago - an ambassador who was once
Dr. McCoy's closest friend, but is now a bitter rival.

On Empyrea, McCoy discovers Anna, a daughter he never
knew he had.  McCoy soon realizes that the isolationist
Empyreans must not learn her father is an off-worlder, and
that her genes are less than "perfect".  As relations with the
Empyreans collapse around him, McCoy must find a way to
save his newfound daughter from the harshest penalty her
planet can impose!



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


I thought authors weren't allowed to introduce previously
unknown family members for the main characters.
In fact, I know it's not allowed because I have a copy
of the guidelines for writing Star Trek by Pocket Books and
it states that an author is not allowed to introduce previously
unknown family members to main Trek characters.

I wonder why they let this one through . . .

Oh well, the story is well written and features McCoy
as the main character, so McCoy fans should like this one.
I enjoyed it.
