Book Description

Internal pressures, enormous military expenditures, and the destruction of their primary energy source have brought the Klingon Empire to the verge of catastrophic collapse.
To avert disaster, Gorkon, Chancellor of the Klingon High Council, proposes negotiations between the Federation and Klingon Empire, negotiations that will put an end to the years of hostility between the two powers, and herald a new era of peace and cooperation. Captain James T. Kirk and the U.S.S. EnterpriseTM are dispatched to escort the Chancellor safely into Federation space.
But a treacherous assassination brings negotiations to a sudden halt and places Kirk and Dr. McCoy in the hands of the Federation's greatest enemy. With time running out, Spock and the Enterprise crew work to uncover the deadly secret that threatens to propel the galaxy into the most destructive conflict it has ever known.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware the enemy who becomes your friend June 16, 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Klingons in the federation. Starving Klingons on top of that. A species to whom war is a way of life wanting peace. It seems far fetched but it's true. The klingons are on our side making room for the next generation in Star Trek. This book was actually quite good. Kirk who despite everything is not dead yet helps to bring about peace with the very people he has sworn to hate. The only hitch in an otherwise great storyline is that years later during the next generations second season we find out that peace with the Klingons began with the U.S.S. Enterprise 1017C responding to a distress call at the Klingon Kitomer outpost. The Enterprise C was destroyed protecting the Klingons. Needless to say this brought about peace. Otherwise this book is great reading for Trekies

From her first Star Trek novelization, "Star Trek V The Final Frontier," J.M. Dillard has been the "go to" author for Pocket Books when it comes to the novelizations for the movies and the novelization of Star Trek Deep Space Nines pilot episode, "Emissary." This is deservedly so, her work in the novelizations of such important events in the Star Trek genre have been exceptional, and this novel is no exception to that rule.
"Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country" as a film was an extremely well told story written by Leonard Nimoy, Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal, with the screenplay being written by Nicholas Meyer and Denny Martin Flinn. J.M. Dillard's work in this extraordinary novel not only serves to novelize that original story, it enhances it beyond measure. She does a beautiful job of adding the characters personal thoughts of the events surrounding them and of adding to the story with "between the scenes" sequences that makes this one of her best efforts.
The premise:
The Klingons, having been long time rivals of the Federation whether through open war or unbridled skirmishes have suffered a great catastrophe when Praxis, A Klingon moon suddenly explodes, removing a key energy resource center for the Klingon Empire. Suddenly finding themselves facing too many problems, more or less of their own creation, in which they've spent too much on their military budget and not enough on environmental and other concerns, the Klingon Chancellor, Gorkon must make a decision to sue for peace between the Empire and the Federation.
The main catalyst for that peace turns out to be Captain Spock, who has been working in secret negotiations with Chancellor Gorkon and is now ready to begin those talks in earnest.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT! December 21, 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am not a TOS reader, but I found this book really exciting! It is by far the best Star Trek book I've ever read. The pace was ideal. There weren't unnecessary details. Everything was straight to the point. I really recommend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Star Trek VI review by Roger May 29, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A Novel by J.M. Dillard

Screenplay by Nicholas Meyer & Denny Martin Flinn

Story by Leonard Nimoy and Nicholas Meyere & Denny Martin Flinn

Synopsis

The Klingons are proposing Peace. Does this mean the end of the war or the end of history?

Stardate 8679.25: Internal pressures, enormous military expenditures, and the destruction of their primary energy source have brought the Klingon Empire to the verge of catastrophic collapse.

To avert disaster, Gorkon, Chancellor of the Klingon High Council, proposes negotiations between the Federation and Klingon Empire, negotiations that will put an end to the years of hostility between the two powers, and herald a new era of peace and cooperation. Captain James T. Kirk and the U.S.S. EnterpriseTM are dispatched to escort the Chancellor safely into Federation space.

But a treacherous assassination brings negotiations to a sudden halt and places Kirk and Dr. McCoy in the hands of the Federation's greatest enemy. With time running out, Spock and the Enterprise crew work to uncover the deadly secret that threatens to propel the galaxy into the most destructive conflict it has ever known.

Review by Roger D. Noriega

The novel is always better than book, right? Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Clear and Present Danger, The Hunt for the Red October, right? I would normally say that this is the case and one should not expect to find the novelization to Star Trek VI to be better than the movie - this is just not the case. A novelization is always based on the most recent script and as we know, movies are changed daily while in production and even in post-production.

The novelization by J.M.

4.0 out of 5 stars Once again, the book far outshines the movie. March 28, 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The movie version of this story was not bad, certainly not as bad as the movie version of "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier". Still, just as Dillard managed to turn that abysmal movie into a more than passable book by managing to plug a great many of the holes in the plot with better explanations of what was happening, so here, too, the same author manages, while MOSTLY remaining true to the plot of the movie, to turn a fairly good movie into an excellent book by explaining a couple of things that the movie failed to make clear. (Now if we could just turn this author loose on a few of the original-series episodes that made no sense, we'd be in business...)
