The universe has less than a century left… unless Spock can change history.The Entropy Effect was a Star Trek: The Original Series novel written by Vonda N. McIntyre. The book was the second Star Trek novel ever published by Pocket Books, and the first with an original story.

IntroductionEdit

The Enterprise is summoned to transport a dangerous criminal from a starbase prison to a rehabilitation center: brilliant physicist Dr. Georges Mordreaux, accused of promising to send people back in time - then killing them instead.
But when Mordreaux escapes, bursts onto the bridge and kills Captain Kirk, Spock must journey back in time to avert disaster - before it occurs.
Now there's more at stake than just Kirk's life. Mordreaux's experiments have thrown the entire universe into a deadly time warp. Spock is fighting time...and the universe is closing in on itself with the relentless squeeze of…
The Entropy Effect.

AppendicesEdit

  • The Simon and Schuster Audioworks box art for the audio adaptation of this novel uses the cover of Triangle (ie. just Kirk/Spock) - because the author trimmed out her entire Sulu subplot to make her story fit onto a 90 min. tape.
