Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-- While on a routine diplomatic mission on the planet Muscae IV, Kirk disappears, leaving Dr. McCoy acting captain. When a Klingon vessel arrives laying claim to the planet, its landing party also vanishes, resulting in a confrontation with the Enterprise. While Doctor's Orders does not boldly go where other novels haven't gone before, it is a fast-paced, well-written adventure in which the characters remain true to the Star Trek universe. Dr. McCoy, with his wry sense of humor, brings an added dimension to the story.
