It is the twenty-third century. On the planet Vulcan, a crisis of unprecedented proportion has caused the convocation of the planet's ruling council -- and summoned the U.S.S. Enterprise(tm) from halfway across the galaxy, to bring Vulcan's most famous son home in its hour of need. As Commander Spock, his father Sarek, and Captain James T. Kirk struggle to preserve Vulcan's future, the planet's innermost secrets are laid before us, from its beginnings millions of years ago to its savage prehistory, from merciless tribal warfare to medieval court intrigue, from the exploration of space to the the development of o'thia -- the ruling ethic of logic. And Spock -- torn between his duty to Starfleet and the unbreakable ties that bind him to Vulcan -- must find a way to reconcile both his own inner conflict and the external dilemma his planet faces...lest the Federation itself be ripped asunder. Diane Duane, author of three previous bestselling STAR TREK novels and an episode of the new STAR TREK NEXT GENERATION® television series, as well as countless other bestselling science fiction and fantasy novels, has crafted a tale of unprecedented scope and imagination, at once a generations-spanning historical novel and a thrilling science fiction adventure.… (mere)

Another excellent Star Trek novel from Diane Duane. A must read for fans of Spock and the Vulcan culture. Also for fans of the Kirk/Spock/McCoy triumvirate, which I totally am. ( )

Classic Trek. And a better outcome than the "brexit."

I pulled this out for some pleasant listening - though I have paper and e- book copies, I also have the abridged (by Diane Duane) audio*TAPE* version, read by George Takei and Leonard Nimoy. With some music and effects, it's a very satisfying version (though lacking Duane's Micheneresque forays into Vulcan prehistory from the full book). My only complaint is that Takei's voice for the computer... just doesn't match the way I hear her when I read the book. Other than that though, he does a terrific job on all the characters. And having Spock's thoughts voiced by Nimoy - excellent! This is one (both audio and print) I re-read on a regular basis.

And it was serendipitous to read of a Vulcan vote to exit the Federation just when Britain, sadly, had a similar vote.

In Spock's World, Diane Duane follows the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise as they travel to Vulcan to give testimony in a public referendum on Vulcan withdrawal from the United Federation of Planets. Duane takes advantage of the setting to explore Vulcan's history and culture, building on what screenwriter Theodore Sturgeon depicted in the episode Amok Time from the original series. Duane begins Vulcan's history with planetary formation, though the solar flare that catastrophically altered its climate from lush jungle to blasted desert, into the wars that plagued the Vulcan people, and Surak's teachings that saved them from themselves. While many parts of Duane's story would later be retconned, such as the details of human first contact with the Vulcans as depicted eight years later in Star Trek: First Contact, the overall novel captures the tone and characterization of The Original Series despite its setting shortly after The Motion Picture in 2275. Other inconsistencies include Duane referencing her other series about the Romulans, who she calls the Rihannsu, in this book as well as referring to the Klingon homeworld as Klinzhai and giving Dr. Leonard McCoy's middle initial as "E." instead of "H." The reader can overlook much of this as it was only with The Next Generation that the producers of Star Trek began to codify the canon. Even avid Trekkers will find plenty to enjoy in this story, both in its history of Vulcan and Duane's portrayal of the political intrigue occurring on modern Vulcan. ( )

A must read for any fan, because of the history and because, as others have commented, the insights to the inner lives of the characters, especially McCoy. Just don't expect to necessarily love it.

*To me* the history of Vulcan was mostly boring, and Surak's revelations read like platitudes. Some bits were fascinating, though....

I do advise you, before you read this, to refresh your memory of the episode of TOS in which Spock has to go home to get 'married' and in which we meet T'Pring and T'Pau.

Btw, I'm going to assume the author checked with Roddenbury, or at least his staff, and with scriptwriters and others knowledgeable of what had already been said about Vulcan history & language etc. I'm not nearly enough of a fan to be able to spot 'errors;' all I can say is that it seemed true to the established Trek-universe, to me.

This is a rather interesting Star Trek novel and Diane Duane has a different take on the origial series Star Treks, with Kirk and the rest of the crew look quire different from later books or the TV series.

In this book, we are transported to Vulcan and its history from deep in its past to the present of the story in interwoven chapters. Although it is great as a stand alone book, the story has additional depths if you have read her novel 'The Romulan Way', which wraps the origins story of the Romulans up in another storyline in a similar fashion.

Ms. Duane's meld of ''history'' and ''Star Trek'' lore creates a narrative that readers unfamiliar with the legendary television show may find difficult to follow... Ultimately, ''Spock's World'' is an insular one; only a few million ''Star Trek'' fans will know or care what's going on.

Prologue:

The joke in Starfleet is that the only thing that can travel faster than warp 10 is news.
Position yourself in the right place - on the surface of the moon, say, somewhere near the slow-moving dayline, or in one of the L5 habitats swinging in peaceful captivity around the world - and you can see it without trouble: the old Earth in the new Earth's arms.
