You can hear the original score in your thoughts as you read along. The story combines elements of a military chess match and the core plot of the episode "This Side of Paradise". While duelling with a new Klingon ship, the crew starts to exhibit out-of-character behavior that is affecting the Klingon ship as well.

MISSION: proceed to Alnath II. Vulcan ship T'pau found with all hands dead. Klingon ship in vicinity. Andorian archeological crew on-site sending distress signal.
OVERVIEW: on Alnath II there's an alien "jewel" emanating some type of force which works on one's psyche uncovering unreconciled desires and then helps to attain them. The problem is that chasing after one's selfish interests quickly erodes "the greater good" of one's chosen group. Right? :-) indeed.
And what of the Vulcans on the T'pao? Well they got what they'd prepared for and wanted all of their lives. Happy trails fellas.
OPINION: Without the Enterprise, Star Trek is NOT. Since most of the action in this book takes place on-board, this book is automatically on my top shelf. I enjoy "being on-board" with TOS' characters while reading. If you do also, then this is one for you. It's well written. I can hear the computerized sounds of the bridge, the turbolift doors opening and closing, Uhura programming her board, the phasers and photon torpedoes firing, sickbay bed monitors... well, you know. If you're like me, you'll never get tired of those background sounds while the characters you love deal with life and death issues in space.
And so, if you're one of us, this book is for you. Peace and long life.

Poorly written Star Trek novel. Huge problem: when part of the plot is that something is affecting the personalities of our crew, it doesn't help when the writer fails to capture the characters from the get go. No one sounded right from page one, so I couldn't tell if it was just bad writing or part of the story!

Great book

For being an older book, I expected a lot of wear and tear. But it is in almost mint condition. Hope to read it soon.

I have recently watched the Original Series and the 6 movies and i was wanting more Star Trek with the same crew. I figured the books were the next best step. I read the Entropy Effect just before this one.

This is a short book but it still managed to feel slow in some parts. The opening starts out interesting enough. We have Klingons that want rights to this planet for unknown reasons, we have a ship of dead Vulcans, and we have something strange happening to the Enterprise crew.

I enjoyed Scotty and Chekov's parts and i think the author did a good job capturing Spocks character as well. But about 3/4 of the way through the plot started to drag and I found myself reading faster to get to the ending.

not a bad book if you're a Trek fan, but not as good as The Entropy Effect either. Maybe that book's ending was so good that it made The Klingon Gambit seem worse than it is.

While mapping a new planet, the Enterprise receives a top-priority message from Starfleet Command, directing them to a nearby star system, where all life signs aboard the Vulcan science ship T'pau have ceased. The science vessel was ferrying a group of Andorian scientists to the site of an archaeological dig, on a planet where a large pyramid had been found, but no other structures or signs of artifacts. There is also a Klingon dreadnought, a powerful new warship, orbiting the planet. Kirk must investigate the Vulcans' deaths, engage the Klingons without beginning a war, and protect the scientists on the planet. To make matters worse, the crew begins to act oddly; crew members leave their posts, Spock is alternately irrational and coldly logical, McCoy begins to distrust all machines. Fights break out all over the ship, over the smallest provocations. And Scotty scavenges the other ship systems, in attempts to improve the performance of the warp engines. Did the Klingons kill the Vulcans? There is no obvious cause of death. A wrong step will mean a galactic war.
This novel is more of the length of a Bantam series book, about 150 pages. It is difficult to fault Vardeman for his characterizations, because the crew is supposed to be out of character here. Actually, they are supposed to be of heightened character, which doesn't always work. There are elements of the episodes "The Naked Time" and "Shore Leave" here, although this story is not as well handled as those. Vardeman makes one large error when Kirk leaves the conn, not once but twice, to Chekov, when higher-ranking officers, specifically Uhura, remain on the bridge. It is important to his story, but the story could have been changed to a more sensible progression without harming the plotline.
McCoy's back-to-nature kick has been seen before, although it is taken a bit farther here. Other crew members have relatively uninteresting pursuits, and there is little science development. There isn't a lot to recommend this volume, it is merely another book, of interest for series fans but not a strong entry.

In my reviews of Classic Star Trek novels, it must be understood that I adhere to the original canon
as invisioned by Gene Roddenberry, and not the "Star Trek" universe accepted by Rick Berman and company.
I generally rate a classic novel thus:
Adherence to Canon -- does this novel adhere to the vision of the original Star Trek?
3 stars
Believability (within the confines of 23rd century Star Trek viability) -- is this novel well-plotted and well
written? Can I picture this novel or imagine myself in it?
2 stars
Coherence and Consistency -- does this novel internally consistent? Is it consistent with other Star Trek
novels by the same author? Is it consistent with what is known of the CLASSIC Star Trek universe?
4 stars -- consistent with the author's "Mutiny on the Enterprise"
Mitigating Factors -- pluses or minuses which dramatically affect the enjoyment of this book
Minus one star for very poor ending.
