In this novel, Friedman has three former members of the original Enterprise becoming involved with the Captain of the current Enterprise.

When Spock is captured with a group of Romulans interested in learning the way of Surak, Starfleet Command is concerned over the knowledge that Spock would be able to give to the Romulans so Picard is tasked with, somehow, extricating Spock from the hands of the Romulans without giving away who he was and as a guide, they sent along an extremely crotchety Admiral McCoy who sees Picard as a weakling as he negotiates a deal. Meanwhile, Captain Scott also hears about Spock's capture and he also decides to do something about it. Surely with all these forces working in his favour, it's only a matter of time before Spock is freed. Surely...

Friedman is a decent author and for the most part he captures the rather disparate natures of the characters though I felt that Dr McCoy's anger was over the top given both his rank and his main occupation in Starfleet. ( )

Two great series meet. It is a wonderful read. ( )

A fascinating Star Trek crossover book, set in the "Next Generation" time, where Spock has been captured in the Romulan Empire while leading the Unification movement to reunite the Vulcans and their sundered cousins, the Romulans. An aged McCoy (145) takes over the effort to rescue Spock when he decides that Picard is too hesitant. Scotty is also a major player here, in a fascinating and well-conceived blending of the first two editions of the Star Trek concept. ( )

Friedman is prolific, but, like many other writers in this genre, he leaves me a little disappointed. (Not disappointed enough to stop buying what he writes just because his name is on it ...) ( )

Ambassador Spock continues his mission to unify the Romulan and Vulcan peoples, but is captured by a Romulan spy. Starfleet dispatches its best ship, the "U.S.S. Enterprise" TM 1701-D, and its most respected captain, Jean-Luc Picard, to secure the release of the ambassador. Ambassador McCoy, now over 140 years old, is also sent to assist in the negotiations.
