What Diane Duane did for the Romulans, John M. Ford did for the Klingons (until, of course, the later movies and series).

In my reviews of Classic Star Trek novels, it must be understood that I adhere to the original canon
as invisioned by Gene Roddenberry, and not the "Star Trek" universe accepted by Rick Berman and company.

I generally rate a classic novel thus:

Adherence to Canon -- does this novel adhere to the vision of the original Star Trek?

5 stars -- without a doubt

Believability (within the confines of 23rd century Star Trek viability) -- is this novel well-plotted and well
written? Can I picture this novel or imagine myself in it?

5 stars -- without a doubt

Coherence and Consistency -- does this novel internally consistent? Is it consistent with other Star Trek
novels by the same author? Is it consistent with what is known of the CLASSIC Star Trek universe?

5 stars -- internally consistent with the author's other novels, consistent with the classic Star Trek Canon. Modern pseudoTrekkies might not appreciate this book like I did.

Mitigating Factors -- pluses or minuses which dramatically affect the enjoyment of this book

Extra pluses for the well-thought out cameo appearances of Spock and McCoy's grandfather.

One worth re-reading.
