An all-new novel from New York Times bestselling author James Swallow set in the popular universe of Star Trek: The Original Series !

The five-year mission of the Starship Enterprise has brought the vessel and her crew to the forefront of an important first contact situation. Under the command of Captain James T. Kirk, the ship is heading to the planet Syhaar Prime in the Beta Quadrant--the home world of an alien civilization preparing to take its first steps on to the galactic stage. One year earlier, the Enterprise came across a badly damaged Syhaari explorer vessel drifting in deep space. In collaboration with the explorer's captain, Kirk and his crew were able to restore the ship to full function and send it on its way. And now, as the Syhaari display rapid technological advances made over the past year, hard questions must be asked. Did the Enterprise crew leak advanced technology or information to the Syhaari during their first encounter, in total violation of the Prime Directive?

I've read quite a few Trek novels and almost all have been pretty terrible. This one I can safely say was a lot better than what I have read. Decent writing (sometimes even very good!) good characterization of much beloved characters who I am very picky about, as in if they don't feel genuine and like the characters I know them to be then I'm not going to like it. Nice segue from TOS to TAS. Read if you like Trek and want a revisit it. It still has it's flaws (can a book not be about the end of the universe where the Enterprise crew has to save it for once?) and I did skim some parts, but overall it's good.
