Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

On a routine exploratory mission, the starship U.S.S. Hood picks up a distress signal from a research expedition though lost long ago, the expedition of Dr. Roger Korby, one of the centuries' greatest scientific minds. Korby himself is dead, it seems, but his colleagues have made a most incredible discovery, a discovery they insist the Hood's captain see for himself. Reluctantly, the captain agrees to beam down.

Meanwhile, the crew of the EnterpriseTM begins long-overdue shore leave on Tranquility Seven. James T. Kirk is looking forward to a few days of rest and relaxation, until what seems like a bizarre case of mistaken identity plunges Kirk into a whirlpool of mayhem and murder, and puts an inhuman stranger with his memories and abilities in command of the Enterprise.

About the Author

Michael Jan Friedman is the author of nearly sixty books of fiction and nonfiction, more than half of which bear the name Star Trek or some variation thereof. Ten of his titles have appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. He has also written for network and cable television, radio, and comic books, the Star Trek: Voyager® episode "Resistance" prominent among his credits. On those rare occasions when he visits the real world, Friedman lives on Long Island with his wife and two sons.

He continues to advise readers that no matter how many Friedmans they know, the vast probability is that none of them are related to him. --This text refers to the Unbound edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This just has to be my favorite Michael Jan Freidman novel. The mood, ambiance and pace are consistent with classic `Star Trek' It would have made an excellent two part episode; an end of season cliffhanger with murder, mayhem, conspiracy, a touch of intrigue and the odd space battle. Kirk squares off against his android double. You see the androids want to replace their flesh and blood counterparts and maintain an orderly universe. With sentient beings changed into androids they can be programmed for the better `Can you imagine how life can be improved if we could do away with jealousy . . . greed. . .hate.' Not as naff as it sounds. A good read.

I've been looking forward to this book for a while, as Michael Jan Friedman's first Star Trek novel, and I wasn't disappointed.
Several years after Captain Kirk found, destroyed, and covered up the android machinations of one Dr. Korby, the androids have returned, determined to fulfill Korby's dream of android humanity. An android duplicate of Kirk is created, and his goal is to dispose of his original and to capture the Enterprise.
This novel has conspiracy, intrigue, Romulans, and most importantly, some good knock-down, drag-out fistfights... all elements of what classic Trek storytelling is all about. Get it, read it, and enjoy!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is a sequel to the episode "What Are Little Girls Made Of?", and it surpasses the episode that is its inspiration on all counts. Its plot moves more smoothly, it has more consistent and plausible characterization, and is just generally a very good story, very well told.

Format: Kindle Edition
Double, Double is one of the better Star Trek novels, with an engaging story generally well told. There are a few quirks: The turbolifts, no longer voice-activated, have a panel of buttons like a hotel elevator, on which one can choose the "Transporter Level." The U.S.S. Hood, which ends up under the command of the real Captain Kirk, suddenly becomes the U.S.S. Dunkirk around Chapter 26. A communications officer named Paultic is referred to as "Potemkin," right before he puts in a call to the ship of that name. Still, these mistakes are merely amusing rather than annoying, the story is inventive, and characterizations are handled competently. All in all, a worthy effort.

I liked the episode that this is tied to, and loved the thought of getting more fun out of it. Writing is really good!
