DEVIL'S BARGAIN

By:  Tony Daniel

Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are sent to evacuate the Omega sector frontier colony Vesbius - a pioneer settlement that is on the brink of an extinction-level event threatening not only all of the colonists, but biological products that are vital to Starfleet.

However, rescue efforts are being thwarted by the colonists themselves, who refuse to abandon Vesbius, claiming that their lives depend upon staying, while giving no reason why.

It is after these irrational decisions that First Officer Spock makes a radical suggestion: Perhaps an unexpected ally could aid the colony and help complete the mission . . .


TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


This novel brings back the Horta from the episode "The Devil in the Dark."
I believe this is the author's first original series novel and it shows.
It's an interesting story but he doesn't write the main Trek characters accurately.
Spock has plenty of un-Spock-like dialogue and what's with Kirk falling in love
and thinking about what life would be like without the Enterprise?

Sorry, not going to happen.
