GEMINI

By: Mike W. Barr

Captain James T. Kirk and the Starship Enterprise have been
sent to the planet Nador to participate in a watershed event:
the Nadorians' first true election, to vote on whether or not to
join the United Federation of Planets.

Supporting the Federation are the planet's joint rulers: Their
Serene Highnesses Abon and Delor, Siamese twins joined at the
spinal cord to represent the unity of the different tribes of
Nador.  But a shadowy group of fanatics wants nothing to do
with the Federation, and will stop at nothing - whether it be
assassinating the princes or kidnapping Captain Kirk's nephew
Peter - to achieve their goals!

Kirk must work to stop the fanatics from wreaking havoc on
Nador, and from harming his beloved nephew - but even he
may be hard-pressed to stem the tide of chaos when the
princes' horrible secret is revealed!



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


I had a difficult time 'getting into' this story.
It just didn't catch my interest right away so about 30
pages in I stopped reading and started something else.

I finally did get around to reading it and found it
to be an unremarkable story.  The idea of the
Enterprise helping a planet that's trying to make the
decision to join the Federation is, to me, interference.
If a culture can't hold elections without terrorism disrupting them,
do they really have what it takes to become a Federation member?

Picky maybe, but it just seemed a bit week to me.

Anyway, the story did have its good moments
so I'm glad I read it, but it's not on my list of novels to re-read.
