Pretty dated in many ways (people are given LSD to make them pliable? What?) but still a fair bit of fun, exactly like TOS. Indeed, its problems are...pretty much TOS's problems. There's a culture in it that's "white people's fevered imaginations of Neolithic culture" that includes some truly bad Native American depictions, but since the culture's origin is literally Paleo diet people who've founded their own planet, I believe they would have bad takes on it and create a planet o'bad takes. Gene Roddenberry famously hated this one, but I think it maybe just got too close to the truth about Trek (I'm not too proud to admit it!)

Interesting for the history. Couldn't *stand* the writing style. ( )

Als Kuriosität (Immerhin handelt es sich hier um die deutsche Erstausgabe des allerersten Star-Trek-Romans, so alt, dass offensichtlich weder Übersetzer noch Illustrator je etwas von der Serie gehört hatten) ist dieses Buch durchaus interessant, inhaltlich ist es aber leider arg seicht und auch nicht besonders gut übersetzt. Warum tragen plötzlich alle Umhänge? ( )

This review also appears on my blog.

I've just written about James Blish's Star Trek, the first Trek book ever published, but that book contained only adaptations of television episodes. The first original Trek story published--and, indeed, the only such book published during the initial airing of Star Trek--is Mack Reynolds's Mission to Horatius, published in 1968.

The Enterprise has been out on patrol for a long time, and just when they were heading for a much needed break, they are ordered to a distant star system--Horatius--from which a distress call has originated.

Horatius has three colonized planets: Neolithia, Mythra, and Bavarya. Neolithia was colonized by people who wanted a less technologically dependent way of life, and its inhabitants have only very primitive technology--not even iron. Mythra was colonized by people fleeing religious persecution, and is ruled by a small class of religious elites. Bavarya, the most recently settled, was colonized by political dissidents, and its leader is a militaristic man called Nummer Ein. The Enterprise is not welcomed by the inhabitants of any of the three planets, but they have a duty to determine who called for help, and render aid if they can.

Meanwhile, the Enterprise has troubles of its own. It has been far too long since the crew has been planetside, and Dr. McCoy fears an outbreak of space cafard, a deadly psychological condition caused by the extreme ennui of protracted space travel. If the crew of the Enterprise don't get leave soon, they may tear themselves apart from the strain.

Mission to Horatius is a quick, easy read. With its A plot of the Enterprise investigating a distress call, its B plot of McCoy's concerns about space cafard, and a good dose of comedy, it reads very like an episode of the show. Which is not to say that it's the most well-written possible book, of course. Kirk is rather cavalier in his response to the situation in which he finds himself, and his actions are not what one would expect of an ambassador of the Federation (as Kirk calls himself). He repeatedly ignores the wishes of the governments of the planets they're visiting, despite himself noting that he must not do that. He even says, "We shall see what our Bavaryan bullyboys have to offer," when it is Kirk himself who is acting the bully.

While not flawless, Mission to Horatius is a suitably enjoyable read for young audiences, for which it was intended. ( )

When man first reached out into space, he began slowly, slowly.
