Reviewer : Ktasay Rating : 2
Review : This book has elements pulled from several other Trek stories recombined into a new one. That of course has been done on other occasions - and done better in some cases. The question the book tries to make is if people deserve to have everything they want most? This was also questioned in TOS: "The Menagerie", "Shore Leave", "This Side of Paradise", "Who Mourns for Adonais", and likely others. Computers controlling a civilization has also featured in many episodes, most notably "Return of the Archons" and "For The World Is Hollow, And I Have Touched The Sky". It should be noted that the outline of this story was intended to be a televised episode, and it would have been better in that venue or as a short story instead of a full novel.
