It began with THE LOST YEARS: the story of what happened to Captain
Kirk and the legendary crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise when their
original five-year mission ended. The saga continued in A FLAG FULL
OF STARS and TRAITOR WINDS. Now, in RECOVERY, J.M. Dillard
brings to an end one of the most exciting chapters in
Star Trek history!
Admiral James T. Kirk, former Captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise and now
Chief of Starfleet Operations, is at a crossroads in his career. When he
is assigned to supervise the testing of the U.S.S. Recovery, an
experimental new rescue vessel, he begins to realize how tired he is of
being trapped behind a desk, away from the action. Fully automated,
the Recovery is a high-speed transport vessel capable of evacuating
large populations without risking the lives of Starfleet personnel. But
when its creator falls under alien influence, the Recovery becomes a
pawn in a deadly game that could lead to interstellar war.
Trapped in the bowels of the ship is Admiral Kirk's old friend Dr.
Leonard "Bones" McCoy, who is being hunted by a homicidal madman
determined that no one on the ship will survive. Taking command of a
starship, Admiral Kirk must find a way to save Dr. McCoy's life - and
save the galaxy from deadly chaos!
As you can probably tell from the cover photo, the
Tholians are involved in this story. They are a race that has
been largely ignored by Trek authors so it's good to see
someone finally writing about them.
This was a good book, definitely worth reading.
