Star Trek: Child of Two Worlds

{4.5/5} “You are addressing General Krunn of the Klingon Empire, presently in command of the Imperial Battle Cruiser Fek’lhr, and I demand the immediate return of my stolen kinsman, as well as custody of her perfidious abductor. Surrender them at once, if you care for the safety of your ship and crew.”

Star Trek: Child of Two Worlds by Greg Cox, published in 2015

Spock is serving with Captain Pike on the Enterprise when there’s an outbreak of Rigelian fever. They’re en route to Cypria to get some ryetalyn which can be used in a treatment. On the way they come across a ship fleeing from Klingons, and they rescue the two beings aboard the ship. They’re both technically Cyprians, but one of them looks more like a Klingon — and she thinks she’s a Klingon too.

The story features Captain Pike, Spock, Dr. Boyce, and Number One.

It’s a great story — you could read it as part of your celebration of Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary.

I previously reviewed Cox’s novel Star Trek: Foul Deeds Will Rise.
