ERRAND OF VENGEANCE
THE EDGE OF THE SWORD

By: Kevin Ryan

Book #1 of 3

More than 400 men and women serve aboard the Starship
Enterprise NCC-1701, "boldly going where no man has gone before."
What are their stories?  We know of Kirk and Spock, but what of those who
live, and sometimes die, under their command?  Those are the best and
brightest of the Federation, men and women of exceptional courage and skill.
But not all of them can be trusted.

Lt. Jon Anderson is the newest security officer aboard the U.S.S.
Enterprise.  He joins the crew at a time of mounting tension between
the Federation and the Klingon Empire.  Previous battles have been
inconclusive, but Starfleet Command fears that the Klingons are gearing
up for a major offensive.  The Enterprise would be on the front lines
of an all-out interstellar war.

But Lieutenant Anderson has a secret: he is actually a Klingon infiltrator
assigned to sabotage from within.  His first mission:
Kill Captain James T. Kirk.



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


Here's the second 3-book series in what Pocket Books
is calling the "TOS Relaunch" and it looks like they
got the story description on the back of the book correct this time!

This one deals more with the characters "below decks"
and less with the main characters.  I didn't think I'd like this idea
at first, but it's being handled quite well and so I'm actually enjoying it.

I really like how this story takes actual events as seen in the
original series and adds background details to them.

The character of Jon Anderson (the Klingon) is very well written and I found myself
sympathizing with him in his struggle to do his duty for Starfleet and the Klingon Empire.

An enjoyable first book in this series.  On to book number two!
