“Would it have been better to admit his fears to the doctor? Should he take advantage of the momentary calm to tell McCoy goodbye and that he never served with a better officer and a better friend? Should he go back up and say the same to Spock?”
While on a diplomatic mission, the Enterprise receives a distress call from the USS McRaven. But what they find when they track the ship down is a cluster of ships all caught within a strange dimensional fold, where nothing is as it seems. When Kirk leads a landing party into the fold it becomes hard to distinguish who is friend or foe, and what is real and imagined.
This was a fantastic story set in the original series of the Star Trek universe. There isn’t any real background knowledge about the Trek universe that you need to enjoy this book, although a good basic understanding would make it more pleasant. It’s a standalone novel, so its good to read if you don’t feel like getting caught up in a saga or a trilogy or whatnot. This was a great story, with lots of action and great character interaction. I would recommend it to any Trek fan.
