Great ST novel. There is strong hold of Voyage Home tunes in it (which is a plus). Characterization of Kirk is bit off here. But it does reads as a TOS episode. I love Novels with Family/friendships bonds of Enterprise crew. I can even forget plot holes.
I read this back in the 80's. It takes place during the first 4 Star Trek movies a favorite time period of mine. Cool story because it takes place on a planet mostly filled with water. The crew has a shuttle craft/ submarine that they use. The star trek movie I wish they would of made. Cool story & thats saying alot.

My favourite Howard Weinstein "Star Trek" novel -- a combination of his usual excellent handling of the regular cast AND a plot that acts as both an inspiration to the film story behind "The Voyager Home", while being an interesting and fascinating story in its own right. There's also a nice explanation behind Chekov's promotion to First Officer of the USS Reliant, as seen in "The Wrath of Khan".

The characters were a little stiff for characters that we all know so well, and in several places the writing was weak. I'm giving it 3 stars though, instead of the 2 stars I normally would have, because it has admittedly been a long time since I've read a Star Trek book, so it's hard to determine how good/bad it actually is.

I just can't get into this one. It's not that it's a bad story or bad writing - not at all. It's just too full of politics for my taste at this particular moment in time. I'll try again in the future.
