This is one of my favorite Star Trek books. Growing up in the 50's and 60's I 'cut my teeth' on the old westerns. I loved Hamby's choice of characters from the old "Here Comes the Brides" series. Making Aaron Stemple (Mark Lenard) a antecedent of Spock's, brought to life by the man who 'became' Spock's father. I prefer character driven Star Trek books over the technically driven books. I read this when it first came out, and just finished it again.

Spock saves the Federation and inadvertantly saves himself. If he had failed, I wonder if he would suddenly stop existing? Well, he didn't, and we all get a kick out of this book. That's all that matters.

I get this joke, but i have not read the book! Pure energy, pure logic.

for fans of older tv series. This sends Spock back in time and incorporates characters from some old tv series, such as "Here Come the Brides" and "Have Gun Will Travel" and "Barbary Coast". Part of the humor comes from a character (who was played by Mark Lenard on "Here Come The Brides") who will turn out to be an ancestor of Spock's human mother. Trekkers will get the joke. We know Spock will get back to his own time, and make a difference in the past.
