* This story takes place during the time when Christopher Pike captains the Enterprise. Though Spock is on the cover, he's not really the main character. Instead, it's an ensemble piece. I enjoyed getting to know Pike's crew better, and my favorite characters were Number One, Yeoman Colt, and Chief Engineer Caitlin Barry. This book makes me want to read more about Pike's crew.
* It's not the most original book, and it's not the best written, either, but my gosh, it sure is exciting. There is medical drama! There is transporter drama! There is away team drama! And there is much, much Klingon drama!
* Aaaaaand there is cake!!! Okay, I know that not everyone gets excited about cake, but I love reading about food. The book opens with a flashback about Amanda giving Spock chocolate cake on his seventh birthday. And then later in the book there are tasty alien cupcakes--homemade Cyprian nutberry cakes, to be precise. Hey, if Deanna Troi can get excited about chocolate, I can get excited about cake. :)
