The "U.S.S. Enterprise" TM is sent to Patria I to discuss that world's application for Federation membership. But Captain Kirk and his landing party soon discover that the Patrians have a strict system of laws, laws that are enforced by a telepathic police force. In the midst of this startling revelation, the crew finds themselves in the middle of Patria's growing political unrest. Caught between the Patrian telepathic police force and a deadly group of terrorists, Kirk, Spock and the others must fight for their lives on a world where their thoughts make them criminals, and all crimes are punishable by death.

    Merely decent, nothing more. Though not great, I've read much worse in this series....

  • Daniel Kukwa

    I'm not a great fan of Simon Hawke's TNG novels, but he is clearly having a ball with the Original Series cast. This is a solid piece of work: exciting action set pieces, an interesting mystery, fanta...

  • Paul Lunger

  • Millstone

    Terribly written but rescued by a slightly better than average story than some of its stable mates. I like these, but only once in a while: nostalgia can only be used sparingly as a gloss....

  • R. Reddebrek

    I picked this up purely to unwind when things had got a bit heavy. It delivered an interesting story that felt like it could've been turned into a script for an episode of TOS with a little editing, t...
