The Klingon Gambit - Robert E. Vardeman An okay early entry in the Star Trek novel series, The Klingon Gambit just doesn't have the flair and action of the best adventures of the Enterprise. There's also a lot of out-of-character actions by the crew (for reasons that will become obvious), especially Mr. Spock. A lot of these books try to explore the Vulcan-Human dichotomy within the character, and end up trying to bring out his emotions in ways never evidences on the original series. In a few instances (like The Vulcan Academy Murders it is limited enough to work and even be a boon to the story. In this story, it's more annoying than anything else.
