A reasonably good Star Trek adventure in which the near-crippled Enterprise goes to Centaurus to help with a struggle against terrorists, and McCoy is reunited with his daughter Joanna. Of interest mainly for this relationship and what it reveals of McCoy, and the revelation of Kirk's wilderness landstake on this planet, Garrovick Valley. ( )

Book description
    Mr. Chekov, Please Take Us Down Close to the Ground"

Spock said. As Checkov pitched the joystick forward and eased back on the power, he asked "Vhat are Ve looking for, Mr. Spock?"

"Some indication of the location of the Centaurus Medical Complex," the Vulcan answered. "Dr. McCoy's daughter was a medical student there.I would like to be able to tell the doctor something of her fate."

At last, they noticed the stumps of what had been several Gothic-style buildings. Slowly, they coasted over the ruins of the Medical Complex. Here and there, dead littered the landscape.

Chekov's teeth were clenched. "Someone must answer for this ... this ..." He sought an adequate word, but could not find one.

They hovered over what had been the central square of the medical school campus. No one came out from hiding in response to the racket of their engines.

Finally Chekov took them up and away.
