A thrilling Star Trek adventure novel featuring Captain Kirk and members of the original crew as they face an unknown phenomenon headed to destroy a planet and its possible origins of a past coming back to haunt them.

Lt. Jon Anderson is the newest security officer aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. He joins the crew at a time of mounting tension between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. Previous battles have been inconclusive, but Starfleet Command fears that the Klingons are gearing up for a major offensive. The Enterprise would be on the front lines of an all-out interstellar war.

But Lieutenant Anderson has a secret: he is actually a Klingon infiltrator assigned to sabotage Starfleet from within. His first mission: kill Capt. James T. Kirk.

A Klingon is surgically altered to appear human in order to assassinate Kirk. He instead finds that humans are not the monsters he's told they are -- in fact, it seems that the Klingons making decisions are worse they say humans are -- and he has to decide what to do about it.I noticed that on several occasions throughout this series that one Klingon character's name was substituted for another, as if the author (or maybe the editor) wasn't sure what to name these people.

I got this book from the Abington Free Library, and it only took me the weekend to finsh it! This book held me spell bound. It is set back before kings were in castels, about a princess who is trying to escape ruthless enemys.
