    A Fairly Typical Star Trek Novel

    The Enterprise is on a mission of mercy to the Vesbius system which is about to be hit by a killer asteroid, but the people are not worried about the cataclysm about to hit them. They have built underground bunkers which they feel will protect them from the coming disaster even though the Enterprise’s calculations decisively show that the entire planet’s biosphere will collapse after the collision. In addition to their unwillingness to consider evacuation, about a third of the colonists express xenophobia toward Spock and a certainty that they are superior to the Enterprise crew even though the colonists are apparently human also. They speak respectfully of Khan and it quickly becomes apparent they have a similar desire to conquer the universe except for one little problem—genetic manipulation that lets them survive on Vesbius keeps them from surviving anywhere else. So the would-be conquerors have developed a plan. They want to sabotage any hope that the colonists can survive the coming cataclysm to force them off the planet and to further force the colonists’ geneticists to make it possible for them to leave Vesbius and take over. Their efforts backfire on them, however, because their sabotage convinces the colonists to let Kirk try and bring back a group of Horta (from The Devil in the Dark episode) to chew up the asteroid so it can be exploded and pushed away from the planet ending the crisis. When the terrorists strike at the Enterprise the novel really picks up and captured my interest. This would have made a fun episode of the original series.
