The Klingon Gambit (TOS #3). All the Vulcans vanish from a research station near the planet Alnath II. Could it have something to do with how everyone starts acting really weird once they begin orbiting the planet? No, it’s probably Klingons, because Klingons. (Reviewed 11/3/17.)

1982

The Prometheus Design (TOS #5). Beings from another universe test our own to see if greatness can be achieved without aggression. Can Kirk’s maverick command style win over a bigoted Vulcan admiral who relieves him of command and a distressingly cruel post-Kolinahr Spock? (Reviewed 11/17/17.)

1983

Black Fire (TOS #8). Spock once again goes behind Starfleet’s backs to investigate a savage warrior race that threatens the galaxy at large. Warning: this book could awaken some extremely specific, vaguely fetishistic Spock-related feelings in some readers. (Reviewed 12/8/17.)

Triangle (TOS #9). It’s a blue Monday when a sexy Federation agent comes between Kirk and Spock as conflicting consciousnesses compete to determine the next step of human evolution. Can they navigate the bizarre love triangle, or will they succumb to the new order? (Reviewed 12/15/17.)

Web of the Romulans (TOS #10). Romulans cross the Neutral Zone border with strangely non-militaristic intent, and Kirk has to figure out what they’re up to without setting off intergalactic war or spurning the advances of the lovesick Enterprise computer. (Reviewed 12/22/17.)

Yesterday’s Son (TOS #11). Spock learns he sired a son with Zarabeth while trapped in the planet Sarpeidon’s ice age during the events of “All Our Yesterdays” and uses the Guardian of Forever to bring him back to the present and acclimate him to the Vulcan way of life. (Reviewed 12/29/17.)

Mutiny on the Enterprise (TOS #12). The Enterprise is on its way out to the Orion Arm to negotiate peace between two worlds and keep the Romulans off their backs, but a preternaturally persuasive pacifist woman picked up from a derelict ship threatens to unravel it all. (Reviewed 1/5/18.)

The Wounded Sky (TOS #13). The Enterprise receives the honor of testing the new Intergalactic Inversion Drive, but they soon realize that using it is causing the lack of entropy from another universe to leak through and render time and reality meaningless. (Reviewed 1/12/18.)

1984

The Final Reflection (TOS #16). A popular historical novel recounts the life of Krenn, a Klingon captain who learned the virtue of peace from a Federation ambassador to the Empire and averted an attempt by his own people to launch a war against the Federation. (Reviewed 2/2/18.)

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (TOS #17). Kirk and his crew go behind Starfleet’s backs to travel to the now-forbidden Genesis planet, take Spock’s regenerated body back to Vulcan, and transfer his essence from McCoy to Spock. (Reviewed 2/9/18.)
