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.

Born from the same preliminary discussions that eventually spawned Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and sharing many of the same overall themes, but telling a very different story. Not bad.
