Product Description

From the Publisher

Okeanos, a water world settled centuries ago by a group of Federation separatists, is now rocked by a power struggle between the natives and the ex-Federation colony. When the U.S.S. EnterpriseTM is sent beyond the Federation's boundaries to the planet to act as mediators, they are surprised to find a group of Klingons already serving as the natives' advisors.

The volatile situation rapidly deteriorates when one of Okeanos's great floating cities is completely destroyed, and Captain Kirk is arrested for sabotage. Now at the center of a deadly civil war, Mr. Spock and the crew must race to free their captain as they face the deadly secret hidden beneath Okeanos's murky depths.

4.0 out of 5 stars genetic manipulated society Nov. 1 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the most really SF-like Star Trek books in the series. I say this because in this books, next to the normal first contact episodes, the ever present klingon warriors, the torpedo's, the bantering between the 3 leading characters, in this book two interesting alien societies are sketched. Esspecially the strongly individualistic culture of geneticly manipulated humans, that have adopted themselfs to their tasks, their waterful environnement and their own wishes is fascinating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Classic Trek March 28 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This is the point in the Star Trek series where the books start getting better. Some older ones by Lee Correy and Marshak and Culbreath were terrible.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting book July 2 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It may be an average Kirk vs. Klingons novel but It's no average. It's great.
This book has humor and has more action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost five stars. Dec 24 2004
By James Yanni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a very good story about the dangers of fanatacism, even in a good cause. It is well told, with good pacing, excellent action, fine characterization, and only a few places (fewer than the average mass-market paperback) where it could have used a bit more proofreading to eliminate sloppy errors in language. The only thing that keeps it from a five-star rating is that, as far as I'm concerned, the ending was a bit too easy; it's difficult to explain why I feel that way without giving away too much of a spoiler, but I feel that it was never sufficiently explained how Kirk solved ONE of the problems he was faced with. It was just assumed that once the other problem was solved, that one would go away too, which seems to me highly unlikely.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I'm a doctor not a diplomat" March 25 2014
By Paul S - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Half way through the book McCoy says "I'm a doctor not a diplomat" and I know I'm in the right book. In the heat of interstellar battle Kirk orders "Scotty give me more power" and Scotty says "I don't know if I have it but I'll find it".
A straightforward star trek adventure: Klingon bad guy manipulates a war-weary planet to attract enterprise and Kirk so that he can take his revenge upon Kirk for past grievances.
An interesting side story too where a woman (the commissioner) who is the product of a dysfunctional family has risen to a position of high authority ends up being driven by her repressed internal conflicts and acts out her self-destructive drives to near interstellar catastrophe.
Good star trek and an interesting read.
4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good TOS story Dec 25 2013
By Trevor Thurlow (Ontario, Canada) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Original Series Star Trek novels are usually not my cup of tea; I prefer, mostly, Voyager novels. However I do read a variety of Trek books, and usually the TOS stories are mediocre. But "From The Depths" is one of those stories that really catches you. And it really feels like a TOS episode.
2.0 out of 5 stars High expectations were not met with this book Jan. 23 2013
By bejaha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was a disappointing entry for a Star Trek book. It was long on political dialogue and short on action. The plot was thinly thrown together, with not much connecting each scene to the next. The cover of this book is great - a water world! But all the scenarios you think could be used for such a story were left out.
