POSSIBLE SPOILERS SO READ ON WITH CAUTION: I would have liked to have seen this as a segment of a larger work. Perhaps expanded it so that there is action aboard the Enterprise/Trill ship as well. They couldn't get clean clothes, I mean, really? Have Chapel and Spock interact off the shuttle even though she's decided to leave the ship she's still got some time to go. He could have let the end linger a little bit. Not that it requires a full blown sex scene but have them become more comfortable with each other before Chapel can't help herself and kisses Spock. Have Kirk and McCoy notice that they are more comfortable with each other or they spend more off duty time together just talking like friends and comrades. They could then discuss their history. The time on the shuttle could have been more straight duty/work, although Spock is just sort of sitting there punching buttons. Perhaps make Spock--as a touch telepath--the person who has to help Audrid Dax and that would make Chapel have to actually steer/command the shuttle. We all know how Spock likes to immerse himself in his mind melds. So, I'm giving it a 4 star because well, it's Chapel and Spock together, but it could have been better, and I would place this in the category of fanfiction not serious Trek.
I developed an interest with the Trill race when DS9 got going. I appreciate how this book really adds some flavor into that exploration of a species we may not know a whole lot about in the Star Trek universe, including one ailment that happens with age. That was interesting.
I also found it interesting that it was Christine Chapel treating Dax instead of Leonard McCoy, consider McCoy had met a Dax host before, who I think was the gymnast Emony. (This was alluded to in the DS9 episode "Trials and Tribble-ations" and in the book "Lives of Dax"). I like how some elements from the Original Series were incorporated, like the reference to Dr. M'Benga (who was seen in only one episode that I remember), and learning a bit more about the Vulcan mind-meld with how it works, albeit through medical references, to bring more information on things that weren't heavily explored in the Original Series. There's a reference to a "roller coaster" in there, and I appreciate that description to help me visualize an evasive tactic in my mind. Who'd have thought that a TMP-era shuttlecraft was that agile, much less warp capable?
One theme I appreciate is this bit about the dangers of hiding things from your doctor that can influence the treatment. This highlights the importance, even today, of being open with one's physician when being treated for anything. I'm not sure if that was an intended tie-in with today or not.
Overall, a very enjoyable read.
