Background information

  • This was the first animated Trek adaptation novel published by Ballantine Books.
  • Arex, during the Mantilles crisis, compares the size of the cloud to "twice the diameter of Sol's three biggest gas giants combined." He was chided by Kirk for using such basic astronomical terms.
  • Oddly, Arex used the term "quien sabe" in the "One of Our Planets is Missing" section.
