      I liked it, too. The colonists really did have a Catch-22, which ratcheted up the tension a lot, and Hannah was a strong and interesting character. I was a little worried about Spock for a while, though...but then what kind of Star Trek book would it be if I wasn't?

      I recently read DEVIL'S BARGAIN by Tony Daniel. (This book features the original

      cast.) I thought overall this book was pretty good. At first it seemed like it

      was going to be pretty predictable. It started out with the Enterprise going to

      the frontier colony planet, Vesbius. A large meteor is coming directly for the

      planet and Kirk has orders to help move the colonists from the planet. Only when

      the Enterprise gets to Vesbius they find that the colonists have no intention of

      leaving their planet. By the middle of the book, the action picks up nicely and

      we get to revisit a favorite group of aliens. Spock gets most of the good lines

      in this book, although Scotty really shines in places with his engineering
