planet Aneher II sits in the middle of the Neutral Zone, and
neither the Klingon Empire nor the Federation can claim it.
Under the terms of the Organian Peace Treaty, any such contested
colony would will go to the party - Federation or Klingon
- which shows it can best develop the planet...
Case of the Colonist's Corpse begins
with the two
colonies (Klingons and Federation) attempting to live together
without war breaking out. As you can probably imagine, this
peace doesn't last very long. In fact it ends rather abruptly
when the head of the Federation colony is found dead. And

not that this is poorly written, or clichéd (though
it is clichéd). It's just that this is so not a Trek

buy anything that is even remotely Trek related, may
want to question the point in purchasing this.
