A couple of months ago, as a celebration of 50 years of Star Trek, I read a book featuring the original crew. Basically the crew of the Enterprise discover a eutopia-like planet (think Risa) that is in endangered by the approach of a large asteroid that is of a sufficient size to be a global threat to life. The only option would seem to be mass evacuation but the crew soon discover that the inhabitants are physically unable to leave-they are biologically bound to their planet. And so another option must be found...
The writing isn't too bad although the author tends to rely heavily on Star Trek cliché phrases (damn it Jim I'm a physician not an engineer etc)
A pretty good fun romp by this unknown author.
Live long and prosper.
Oh and Merry Christmas everyone.
