Star Trek: Trek to Madworld - Stephen Goldin


I am not a fan of godlike beings, and yes, that includes the Organians. The main characters feel right here, and the Trek science fits. Might be the best of the Bantam series so far.

This might also be the first book to bring in Klingons and Romulans, and the Klingon subplot was pretty fun. Besides being godlike, the main antagonist here quotes liberally from Willy Wonka - this rubbed me the wrong way. The ending was pretty obvious, but it was a quick read.

Goldin was married to Kathleen Sky, author of the earlier book Vulcan! in the same series. He went on to write other novels, and is active on Goodreads. I believe this was his only Star Trek novel.

This is the 8th of 12 #StarTrek books I am reading this year on #WorldsWithoutEnd - while I am lagging a bit, these are usually quick reads!
