Kirk discovers the true cost of peace when the planet Nador's
last hope for unity - Siamese twins Abon and Debor - are threatened
by assassins willing to strike at Kirk's own family
to achieve their goals. As the situation quickly descends
into chaos it becomes apparent to Dr McCoy that the Siamese
princes' own unity may be killing them. Meanwhile, the crew
of the Enterprise find out just what a desperate people will
do for peace...
is that all-too-common Trek novel - the comfy read.
An important mission, favourite characters, the original Trek
universe... you know what you're getting. The Nadorians are
having their first election [democracy - good], the vote is
to see if the planet joins the Federation [Federation - good],
but the forces of darkness are threatening the planet's monarchs,
their Serene Highnesses Abon and Delor [monarchy good - hang
on... isn't democracy good?].
Oh, who cares! Anyway, it turns out that Kirk's nephew, Peter,
lives on the planet and gets kidnapped... And that's about
it - assassination attempts, head-scratching and standard
Spock/ McCoy banter. All very predictable and all very dull.
Oh yes, the princes are conjoined twin but that adds nothing
to the plot although it did trigger thoughts of a particularly
funny South Park episode.
you like original Trek this might just do but it really
isn't up to much.
