A mysterious music holds the clues to save an alien race!

Uhura's Song is a Pocket TOS novel – #21 in the numbered series – written by Janet Kagan. Published by Pocket Books, it was first released in January 1985.


From the book jacket
Years ago, Lt. Uhura befriended a diplomat from Eeiauo, the land of graceful, cat-like beings. The two women exchanged forbidden music and promised never to reveal their secret.
Now the USS Enterprise is orbiting Eeiauo in a desperate race to save the inhabitants before a deadly plague destroys them. Uhura's secret songs may hold the key to a cure – but the clues are veiled in layers of mystery. The plague is killing humans, threatening other planets – and Captain Kirk must crack the code before the Enterprise succumbs.
