Spock Must Die! - James Blish The very first non-series Star Trek novel was written by the same author who adapted most of the original series to book form. The story is an extension of the episode "Errand of Mercy" and deals with some rather high-brow philosophical questions presented by Dr. McCoy, as well as some high-tech problems caused by one of Scotty's innovations. The book shows a more naval look at the Enterprise than the series did, as the ship is inadvertently behind enemy lines. The depth of the problems makes the dialogue a bit long-winded, but it is a fairly enjoyable read.
