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.

    Entertaining

    Excellent read, very entertaining story. The writers use of humor with McCoy hit the nail on the head with his personality and wit. Excellent job!
