GARTH OF IZAR

By: Pamela Sargent & George Zebrowski

The legend of Captain Garth, the hero of
Axanar, has spread throughout the Federation.  His exploits are
required reading at Starfleet Academy - where he became a
hero of a future legend, James T. Kirk

Brutal injuries sustained on Antos IV forced
the native Antosians to heal him by means of giving him their
natural shape-changing abilities.  But the cure proved worse
than the disease, as Garth was driven insane...

His madness apparently cured at the rehab
colony on Elba II, Captain Garth has returned to service to
mediate a crisis on Antos IV, with the aid of Captain Kirk and
the Starship Enterprise.  But has Garth truly put his insanity
behind him, or will he renew his plans for conquest - starting
with the Antosians?


TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


When I was creating the web page for the episode
"Whom Gods Destroy" on the sound WAV section of this site
I remember thinking, "I wonder why no one has ever written about Garth."
and not long after that, this book came out.

Coincidence, I know, but it's strange how that sometimes happens.

Anyway, the character of Garth (where is Izar anyway?)
was not one of my favorites during the original series, but
he was made out to be a larger-than-life person that even
Kirk looked up to so it's interesting to find out more about him.

We do learn a lot more about him in this story, such
as how he got injured in the first place.  The back story
proved to be believable and interesting and so did the
main story.  Garth uses his shape-changing abilities again
and so you have to pay attention to who's who.

Overall, this is a pretty good story.
