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. Cmdr. 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!
This is a direct sequel to the novel 'Dreadnought!" (#29)
and this too, is written in the 'first person.' I really wish they
wouldn't do that and I'm pleased to say no one has done it since.
As for the storyline - of course Kirk didn't steal the technology;
they even say so on the back cover!
Anyway, as I said for Dreadnaught! there's nothing wrong with
the actual writing as Diane Carey is a top-notch author I just
don't care for the 'first person' perspective.
