Windows on a Lost World

V. E. Mitchell, Author Pocket Books $5.99 (275p) ISBN 978-0-671-79512-2
The bestselling Star Trek juggernaut rolls on with the 10th hardcover based on the phenomenally popular TV series and its spinoffs, Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine . The events in this newest adventure follow those of the latest Star Trek film and focus on Dr. Leonard McCoy, curmudgeonly chief medical officer of the starship Enterprise . McCoy and his longtime comrades (Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock et al.) abandon their imminent retirement for one final mission: to pacify the planet Ssan, terrorized by an outlaw guild trying to revive an ancient tradition of assassination. McCoy, who was traumatized by his experiences on Ssan during its last civil war, finds other old wounds reopened when a civilian diplomatic team assigned to the mission turns out to include his now-remarried ex-wife. Contending with wrenching memories of their painful breakup as well as with bloodthirsty killers, he and his friends struggle to save yet another world. Friedman ( Reunion ) knows his Star Trek trivia and has an excellent grasp of the much-beloved characters. Though the plot is fairly predictable and occasionally a bit talky, fans will devour the smorgasbord of information about McCoy. (Aug.)
