Back on Earth enjoying a well-deserved shore leave, Captain Kirk is rudely accosted by a trio of Starfleet security guards. It seems he is wanted for questioning in connection with the theft of transwarp -- the Federation's newest, most advanced propulsion system. Could Captain Kirk, Starfleet's most decorated hero, be guilty of stealing top-secret technology? With the aid of Mr. Spock, Lt. Comdr. Piper begins a desperate search for the scientists who developed transwarp -- a search that leads her to an isolated planet, where she discovers the real -- and very dangerous -- traitor!

Carey's second outing with Lt. Piper reads a little more smoothly than the first (Dreadnought!), but it's still very rough around the edges. This one at least has a recognizable and marginally logical plot arc, although some of the individual scenes don't quite fit in with it. In general Carey spends too much time telling us that her characters are undergoing profound internal conflicts, instead of developing them to a depth where we can empathize with those conflicts without help. Piper, Sarda, and Scanner still mostly seem like Kirk, Spock, and McCoy in disguise, but they do start to develop slight traces of individuality. Like its predecessor, Battlestations! has a relentless pace that covers some (not all) of the plot holes, plus more of the author's one-liners, which are usually worth a giggle even when they're cheesy.
