The Klingon Gambit - Robert E. Vardeman

I'm glad to be done with this as it was a serious disappointment as a novel, one that conveys the feeling of work churned out quickly to meet a deadline. The plot is little more than an unimaginative synthesis of elements from various episodes of the original show, and the story is plagued with pacing issues and poor characterization. It makes for a real contrast with the previous entry in the series, which was superior in every respect.
