Star Trek: Vulcan’s Forge

{5/5} “Spock paused, considering the starkness about him. A younger Spock would have agreed stiffly that there was an esthetic correctness to the arrangement of plain and mesa and mountains. Now he could say simply, ‘Yes. I, too, find it beautiful.'”

Star Trek: Vulcan’s Forge by Josepha Sherman & Susan Shwartz, published in 1997

In the desert of Vulcan, Spock undergoes the rite of passage that takes him from boy to man. Decades later, after Jim Kirk died, he was Captain of the Intrepid II with McCoy and Uhura on board. His childhood friend David Rabin calls for help. He’s on another desert planet, with some saboteurs and possibly some Romulans.

If you’re a fan of Spock, this is the book for you.

Why did Spock decide to go into Starfleet? This book has a perfect explanation for that.

Uhura shows her leadership skills in this story, commanding the ship while Spock is on planet.

There are lots of terrific parts, but the best was the conversation between Spock and Sarek.

This is the 2nd time I’ve read it.

I’ve read all 5 of the Star Trek books that Sherman and Shwartz wrote.
