Another excellent chapter in David R. George’s anniversary Star Trek tale, this of course centered on the Enterprise’s legendary First Officer. Once again, the events of “City on the Edge of Forever” are a nexus for Spock, Kirk, and McCoy.
This tale incorporates the original series, the movies, a couple of the novels, and even the animated series into the background. While it wasn’t nearly as intricate as the previous chapter (Crucible: McCoy), it gave fans of Trek, and Spock, some valuable background history on what happened to the character during the “downtime” between series and movies, and a lot of pertinent insight into one of the more inscrutable characters of the franchise.
Very well-written and definitely a recommended read!
