Also, there's a subplot which is pretty hilarious, if unnecessary. The jist of the subplot: "Scotty is at most resourceful when he shows the thing or two about making hooch"--how can that be anything but entertaining!
Overall, it's a worthwhile read, but the plot falls flat in some places. It is fast-paced, however, and you get some background on Vulcan culture, which is always interesting. Also, some of Captain Pike's past is detailed. You have to read a couple chapters before you can get into it.
As for the physical book, I found the font to be of a very generous size, bigger than most paperbacks. My eyes were not strained in the least, and I found it an easy, enjoyable read.
There's a giant emerald that supposedly represents the "soul of Vulcan", and it took the Vulcans over 4000 years to relocate it?! And when they sent Spock to find it, he finds it in, like, a day. Come on! And the story suggests there's a whole contingent of Vulcans on the Enterprise (when we'd been lead to believe Spock was the ONLY one), and T'Pring is from a family of six kids (when Vulcans are only supposed to have one or two). What the hell? Having other Vulcans on the ship detracts from Spock's "unique" quality onboard; and having the Vulcans multiply like rats is "illogical" given that they come from a desert planet with limited resources. Aside from that, the murder mystery is lame and Scotty's devising of a moonshine still aboard the ship is as annoying side-issue that doesn't lend anything to the story. And we all know what's going to happen to T'Pris as soon as Spock takes a shine to her so... I was REALLY disappointed.
