Absolutely love this one. It has a certain quality that I did not find in many Star Trek book. It has excellent balance between romance, action, and the psychology of the characters. A definite re-reader. ( )

Spock's family background.

This is definitely an example of a more interesting Star Trek novel.

Spock, as we know, is a hybrid, and humans don't live as long as Vulcans - his mother is dying.

He returns to visit and try and talk to his father.

Definitely interesting to see the background of this family.

I always like the Spock background stories best. ( )
  MerryMary | Jun 14, 2007 |
Sarek, father of Spock, husband to the human Amanda, is one of the more intriguing characters in the Star Trek mythos. He and Spock have long since mended their bridges, but now Amanda is dying. Spock returns to Vulcan and rebuilds his connection with his father, but when Sarek is called away on a diplomatic mission, their fragile relationship comes crashing down again. The book alternates between the "present" and Sarek's history, especially his relationship with Amanda and how it developed. As Spock would say, a "fascinating" story, and quite touching as well. ( )

Book description
The novel begins after the events of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
Spock's mother, Amanda Grayson, is dying, and Spock returns to the planet Vulcan where he and Sarek enjoy a rare moment of rapprochement. But just as his wife's illness grows worse, duty calls Sarek away - once again sowing the seeds of conflict between father and son.
Yet soon Sarek and Spock must put aside their differences and work together to foil a far-reaching plot to destroy teh Federation - a plot that Sarek has seen in the making for nearly his entire career.

The epic story will take the crew of the Enterprise to the heart of the Klingon Empire where Captain Kirk's last surviving relative has become a pawn in a battle to divide the Federation .. and conquer it. With Sarek's help, the crew of the Enterprise learns that all is not as it seems. Before they can prevent the Federation's destruction, they must see the face of their hidden enemy - an enemy more insidious and more dangerous than any they have faced before ....


Spock sat by his mother's bedside, holding her small, cold, wasted hand in both of his own, as though he could somehow transfer some of his strength to her by so doing.

The room was bathed in sunlight, and the monitoring devices were subdued, non-intrusive. As Spock watched his mother, her lips parted, and she spoke. Barely more than a breath escaped. A breath that was a name.

"Sarek.... ?"

She had been calling his father's name for hours, and the sound of it wrenched Spock's heart as nothing in his life ever had. "I am here, Mother, I am here. Spock ... I'm here with you, Mother." She opened her eyes again, stared vacantly at him. Fretfully, she tugged her hand away from his.

"Sarek?" she murmured, turning her head on the pillow, seeing someone who wasn't there ...
