The Federation's leading minds – marked for murder!

Summary Edit

From the back cover
Memory Prime is the central core of an immense computer library, an entire network of research planetoids. Here, the Pathfinders, the only artificial intelligences legally permitted to serve the Federation, control and sift the overwhelming dataflow from thousands and thousands of research vessels across the galaxy.
The greatest scientists in the Federation have gathered at Memory Prime for the prestigious Nobel and Z-Magnees prize ceremonies, unaware that a deadly assassin is stalking one of them. As Captain Kirk struggles to save his ship from sabotage and his first officer from accusations of murder, he discovers the hidden assassin is far from the deadliest secret lurking on Memory Prime.

Kirk is by no means happy about his most recent assignment, shuttling scientists to a ceremony on Memory Prime. The plot thickens as intercepted transmissions seem to link Spock with the secret Vulcan terrorist group, the Adepts of T'Pel. After a suspicious, and highly dangerous attempt at sabotage while en route, the Enterprise is commandeered by the commodore. Things seem hopeless when Spock makes a semi-miraculous (and highly illegal) escape from the Enterprise's brig. Even the captain begins to lose hope until Bones gets him back in the fight, and off he goes to save the Federation's finest minds, and save Spock as well.
