TWILIGHT'S END

By: Jerry Oltion

Unlike most planets, Rimillia does not spin upon its axis, so
its day and night sides are subjected to perpetual extremes
of hot and cold.  Habitation has only been possible on a thin
band of the planet's surface . . . until now.

Using gigantic impulse engines of unimaginable power, the
alien Dumada intend to start Rimillia rotating, rendering the
entire world fit for colonization.  Yet some fear the enormous
stresses involved may instead tear the planet apart.

Assigned to assist the Dumada, Captain Kirk must rescue a
kidnapped scientist vital to the rotation project.  But, once
the giant engines are activated, can even Scotty save
Rimillia - and the U.S.S. Enterprise from total destruction?



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


First of all, isn't it the spinning that gives a planet its gravity?
How can this planet have gravity if it's not spinning?
I'm no scientist but I don't think starting a planet spinning
would be at all possible.  You'd rip the atmosphere away
and probably tear the planet apart as well.

This is a silly story idea to me.

There is one thing I really like about this novel: The cover picture.
It's very well drawn and I like the colour scheme.
  Take another look!
