Two TOS Trek stories, plus an original by Lawrence,
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Mudd's Angels (Star Trek: Adventures) (Taschenbuch)
This book consists of really three stories in one volume. The first two are novelizations of the two Original Series Star Trek episodes that featured Harry Mudd: "Mudd's Women" and "I, Mudd." The third is an original story by J.A. Lawrence entitled, "The Business as Usual, During Altercations," which picks up where "I, Mudd" left off. Mudd's "angels" are the women, both human and android, in the stories.
Classic Trekkies will recall how, at the end of "I, Mudd", con man Mudd was left marooned on a planet full of androids, including hundreds of replicas of his nagging wife, Stella. In "Business as Usual," Harry has managed to get off the planet and is selling the more attractive androids (but not the Stella series!) to lonely miners, in order to corner the market on dilithium crystals. This leaves the Federation stuck without a supply of this all-important fuel. It's the Enterprise to the rescue, of course, as Captain Kirk and crew out-wit Harry Mudd once again.
The book is part of an out-of-print series that was published by Bantam back in 1978, before Pocket Books got a monopoly on Star Trek novels. Bantam re-issued its series in the early 1990s, than they went out of print again. There are plenty of used copies of both editions around, though, so check out...
These stories are 100% true to the style of the TOS-era and a pure joy in nostalgia and must-have for every fan with a lot of funny moment's, insider-jokes and Easter-eggs. But the stories are only based on the TOS-stuff, so don't wonder if you may find inconsistencies to the story concerning Harry Mudd during the TAS.
I found this novel so entertaining that I read it in one shot this afternoon.
Live long and (prosper?) ;-) Harry Mudd!
