Enemy Unseen (Star Trek, Book 51)

Enemy Unseen (Star Trek, Book 51) - V.E. Mitchell [These notes were made in 1990:]. Obviously an expansion on the ideas presented in the original episode (something about Babel) where a diplomatic party on board the Enterprise is shocked by a murder. In this case, a junior Vulcan officer (Tenaida) and the woman he is attached to - Janara - who turns out to be a powerful telepath - are the scapegoats. There are complications provided by Janara's mother, a harpy who is a former flame of Kirk's, and an ambassador who, in order to satisfy his own culture's notions of honour, presents 3 of his wives to Kirk. (Only the comedic possibilities of this situation are explored!) Quite a good little actioner.
