Read from September 18 to 19, 2012

From October 1989 comes a book that is a sequel/follow-up to "Miri" & "Requiem for Methuselah". Judy Klass's "The Cry of the Onlies" has the Enterprise on a diplomatic mission to Boaco Six to meet with the Council of Youngers to stave off a revolution. This council is of kids similar to the children on Miri's planet. When a planetary ship is destroyed by what appears to be a Federation ship diplomacy is out the window & this story falls apart in a hurry. Don't get me wrong, Klass's story is well intentioned but the reintroduction of Flint to help with a cloaking device seems like a convenient plot point & unnecessary. We've also got the re-introduction of the children from Miri's world that solve part of the plot itself. The story itself even with the Klingon component is still workable & easy to read. The conclusion is a bit rushed which doesn't help. Overall skip this sequel unless you're a die-hard fan
