Vardeman Ì 8 read read The Klingon Gambit W of a Federation science ship has been wiped out The remaining members of the Alnath II mission have discovered a fabulous ancient city but their report doesn't make sense The Klingon battle cruiser has the Enterprise in its sights and is. The Klingon Gambit by Robert E Vardeman is yet another book based on the classic Star Trek series I am slowly going through my collection and rereading these books some of which I haven t read since about 1983 Some of them I remember fondly than others This is one I didn t remember at all For good reason It s not very good In fact it s dopey I don t recommend it unless you really have nothing else to doThe crew of the Enterprise is ordered to Alnath II confront a Klingon dreadnought a starship with deadly fire power Alnath II is a class M planet with valuable archaeological ruins A Federation science ship sent to the planet to investigate it is discovered nearby its entire Vulcan crew dead Is this the work of the Klingons Did they violate the Organian peace treaty Captain Kirk and his intrepid crew better figure it out soon before they meet the same fateSo not a lot happens in this story The plot is fairly weak and slow moving and the 158 pages should have moved much uickly than they did The crew of the Enterprise starts going a little nutty Mr Spock wants to sex up his hot science assistant Lt Uhura has the eyes for Dr M Benga and Capt Kirk is incapable of making decisions There s a lot of screaming from the Klingon commander lots of threats to blow up the Enterprise but no one does anything I began skimming because I was bored The ending is fairly lame with a lot of he man fightin antics and smoking phasers and in the end all the trouble was caused by view spoileran alien crystal on the planet below that apparently gives people whatever they desire Or something like that hide spoiler

Vardeman Ì 8 read read The Klingon Gambit Ready to destroy itBut Captain Kirk can't seem to make decisions Spock has started to throw temper tantrums And Chekov has disobeyed vital orders The crew of the Enterprise are losing their minds one by one all victims of the Klingon gambit. One of the apt criticisms of the Star Trek franchise is about the repetitiveness of their plotting Though the original premise of a starship exploring the galaxy opened up a variety of possibilities it wasn t long before the crews were repeatedly encountering godlike aliens faux Edens and dangerous machines that needed to be talked into destroying themselves From the standpoint of a television show especially the original series such repetition is perhaps understandable given the constraints imposed by technology and budgets This is also what makes the franchise s novels so different freed from such mundane constraints practically anything is possibleThis is why Robert Vardeman s novel is so frustrating The title suggests a story involving the Enterprise crew grappling with some fiendish Klingon plot to take over the Alpha uadrant or perhaps an interstellar battle in which Kirk matches wits with the captain of a Klingon warship What Vardeman delivers instead is a tepid mystery that for fans of the original series will seem all too familiar as the author takes elements from two of their episodes and mashes them together after making just a few minor alterations The Klingons are less of a fearsome threat in the story than they are a secondary plot device and their gambit to the degree that there even is one boils down to seeking a MaGuffin and nothing The whole thing is a waste of a good title a neat cover and the hours of time spent reading it as fans are best advised taking a hard pass on this one
