MY BROTHER'S KEEPER
CONSTITUTION

By: Michael Jan Friedman

Book #2 of 3

Continuing the powerful story of Jim Kirk's lost friend,
the man who helped shape a Starfleet captain . . .

Gary Mitchell is dead, killed by his best friend for the
sake of his ship.  As Captain Kirk returns home in
sadness, he recalls the first time he held Gary's life in
his hands:  Seven years earlier, the two men have been
assigned to the U.S.S. Constitution, Gary as chief
navigator and Kirk as second officer, when the starship
comes to the defense of an alien world menaced by
ruthless invaders.  An early attack leaves both the
captain and the first officer in comas, and Jim Kirk must
take command for the first time.  He finds himself with
only one chance to defeat the heavily armed
enemy - but the cost may be Gary Mitchell's life!



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


One of the things I noticed while reading this book was
that some of the text on the back cover was wrong:

"An early attack leaves both the
captain and the first officer in comas,"

That doesn't happen!

I guess the story was changed,
but they forgot to update the text on the back cover!

Anyway . . .

That doesn't take away from the fact that this is another great story.

All 3 books start off with the story taking place just after
the events in the episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before"
and then they do a flashback to earlier times.
Usually flashback stories are not my favorite, but these
stories are top notch.

I highly recommend this series!
