Review: Vulcan! by Kathleen Sky (1978)

Vulcan! by Kathleen Sky

I have continued my reading, but have not been posting the reviews, so I’ll try to write up a few, although it’s harder when some time has passed and now I don’t remember all the details of the novels! Well, at least I’ll try to post my view as from whatever really impacted me.

This is one of another of the adoring-Spock novels. Even though he is not actually the center of the action, the supposedly central plot is that the protagonist is a very racist anti-Vulcanist. I don’t remember if there was a reason or not, it just seemed a silly way to focus on Spock’s Vulcan side.

Besides that, it’s just another space opera novel, go down, have some adventures, have some people in trouble and get them out of it. The main plot is trite, and ploddish to get through. I think I did speed-read my way through most of it.

Real unremarkable book, tries to explore a bit of bigotry in the Star Trek universe, but curiously, nobody even comments on it nor condemns or even tries to stop it, except of course to just try to get along. Skip it.
