We reach the mid-point of this epic anniversary story with Dave Galanter handling the writing chores on this part of “Mere Anarchy.”
Several years after the last installment, Kirk is now an admiral and the legendary five-year mission is over. McCoy is a country doctor again, but still joins his best friend when he needs help investigating smuggling operations involving Mestiko. The world has improved slightly, and is on the verge of becoming properly livable again, but intrigue and unrest threatens progress once again.
This part of the storyline is just as well-written as the others, and Kirk and McCoy’s characterizations are spot on. So far, the entire “Mere Anarchy” series has been recommended reading as far as this Trekker is concerned.
