Dayton Ward's "That Which Divides" is a very slight variation in the episode "That Which Survives". In this version, the Enterprise is called in to assist in the rescue of the U.S.S Huang Zhong which has crash landed on a planet in the Kondaii System. The planet itself is unique since it is located inside of an interstellar rift that only opens every 3 years. Ward does a rather remarkable with the plot as he keeps us guessing as to the mystery of the rift & the people who inhabit the system. The Romulan scenes are done well as well since they aren't entirely overblown & the scenes on the bridge after things get split is nice too. What also helps this story is that Ward doesn't do a lot of rehashing of old characters nor does he bring back elements of things best left forgotten which has been the case with books in the Kirk era as of late. Overall a well written & well timed story for the Original Series as this year looks a lot better in the Trek fiction world than a year ago.
